Andie MacDowell’s body insecurity

OHMYGOSSIP — Andie MacDowell can be “hard on herself” about her body.
The 61-year-old actress – who has children Justin, 33, Margaret, 24 and 29-year-old Rainey with her former husband Paul Qualley – admitted that although she’s “thankful for her body” and wouldn’t change a thing, she feels insecure about the fact she’s not had a flat stomach since having children.
When asked whether she ever feels body-conscious, she told Britain’s HELLO! magazine: “Yes, I have had three babies and I just don’t have the stomach of a 30 year old – I just don’t.
“I would hate to pass on my insecurities to anyone else but I do feel it inside myself. Even when I’m thin I can be hard on myself.
“I guess that’s life. But I am thankful for my body and I wouldn’t change a thing.”
As for how she stays in shape, the ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’ star revealed that she’s been going to yoga classes since her first pregnancy and believes it’s helped her maintain “strength and shape” in her arms.
She said: “I’ve been doing yoga since my first pregnancy. I have tried lots of different styles and I’ve never been to a class I didn’t enjoy.
“I hate to say it but at 61 years old I really struggle with my arms – yoga has helped me preserve some strength and shape there. Everyone thinks yoga is just stretching, but there’s a lot more to it.”
The ‘Groundhog Day’ star added that she often goes hiking to balance her “cortisol levels” and feels walking is good for her “mental state”.
She said: “I also love to hike – that’s what I do for my mental state. Getting out into nature helps balance my cortisol levels. I try to be quiet and listen to the birds and appreciate the greenery. ”
