Graffiti
from her childhood visits are preserved in an upstairs bedroom closet. Her mother was an alcoholic and her parents divorced when she was six years old.[7][8] She attended Winthrop University

In the early 1980s, MacDowell modelled for Vogue magazine and appeared in ad campaigns for Yves Saint Laurent, Vassarette, Armani
perfume, Sabeth-Row, Mink International, Anne Klein and Bill Blass. A series of billboards in Times Square and national television commercials for Calvin Klein
Calvin Klein
drew attention to her and led to her 1984 film debut in Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes, a role in which her lines were dubbed by Glenn Close

because her Southern accent was too pronounced for her to play the role of an Englishwoman.[10] In 1985, she had a supporting part as a doctor in St. Elmo's Fire. MacDowell studied method acting with teachers from the Actors Studio, in addition to working privately with the renowned coach Harold Guskin.[9] Four years later, director Steven Soderbergh

cast her in the independent film Sex, Lies, and Videotape
Sex, Lies, and Videotape
(1989). Her performance earned her an Independent Spirit Award, a Los Angeles
Los Angeles
Film Critics Association Award for Best Actress, several other award nominations and led to a series of starring roles in films such as Green Card, The Object of Beauty, and Short Cuts. In the 1990s, MacDowell achieved stardom due to the box office success of director Harold Ramis's 1993 comedy, Groundhog Day, and Four Weddings and a Funeral
Four Weddings and a Funeral
(1994), opposite Hugh Grant. Since 1986, MacDowell has appeared in print and television advertisements for the cosmetic and haircare company L'Oréal. In later years she has acted primarily on television and in independent films.[9] In 2012 she co-starred in the short-lived ABC Family
ABC Family
series Jane by Design.[11] From 2013 to 2015, she starred in the Hallmark Channel family series Cedar Cove. Personal life[edit] MacDowell married rancher and fellow former model Paul Qualley in 1986.
