Andie MacDowell On Getting Naked For Sex Scene In New Film: ‘I Felt No Shame’

Andie MacDowell will soon be seen in “Love After Love”, an upcoming big-screen drama in which the former “Four Weddings and a Funeral” star is featured in a steamy nude sex scene.

Speaking with the New York Post‘s Cindy Adams about the new film, the 59-year-old actress candidly discussed baring all for the role, insisting she felt “no shame” during filming.

“I have sex in this. I’m naked. It’s not gratuitous. It’s emotional. I play a lonely lady. First time my character’s doing it, she’s not ready. Then there’s a second time,” she explained.

“I’ve done sex scenes before and felt all right this time because I knew everyone around,” she added. “I didn’t care who was there. I felt no shame. The crew was cut back. Precautions were taken. And I knew it’s important to the character.”

MacDowell pointed out that she’s not the only member of her family to get nude for a role, citing her 23-year-old daughter, actress Margaret Qualley. “My actress daughter’s been naked in a movie. I have never made my family ashamed of their bodies. Different from my own background. My parents, more European than I, were conservative.”
