It may be Groundhog Day, but Andie MacDowell’s hair isn’t stuck repeating the past.
During a recent appearance on “The Drew Barrymore Show,” the 62-year-old actress said she’s “loving” her decision to embrace her gray hair during quarantine.
“I wasn’t coloring my hair and you could see my roots, and my daughters kept telling me that I looked badass. And that idea that I could look badass appealed to me,” the actress explained.
“So I went for it, and I’m loving it.”
While MacDowell hasn’t decided whether she’ll stick with the natural look post-pandemic, she’s “enjoying” rocking the “silver fox” look for the time being.
“When I first did it I went to the grocery store because we had no place to go and I thought I looked good, and I saw a man there … A guy you see and go, ‘He’s a silver fox,’” she recounted.
“I immediately just put my shoulders back, and I was like, ‘And so am I.’ We kind of shot a look at each other and I was like, ‘I’m a silver fox.’”
The actress is striving to break the stigma of aging strands, revealing that she “always” corrects those who refer to her “silver” locks as gray.
“It’s not that I’m letting myself go, I don’t think of it that way,” she explained.
MacDowell isn’t alone in finding a literal silver lining to being stuck at home, as Sharon Osbourne, Kevin Hart, Sarah Silverman and Hilarie Burton are among the many other stars embracing their grays during lockdown.
