Andie McDowell understands the stir that caused pictures of her gray hair when she was spotted on the red carpet Annette A few days ago at the Cannes Film Festival. Like many other women, she too began to be quarantined. The actress who won Hugh Grant at the age of 63 Four Weddings and a Funeral Back in 1994, she had doubts about how her new silver hair would be received and even considered putting on a wig to “make others happy” and that it wouldn’t be too shocking to see her hair transition. This is what they told about the American version the trend in an interview In which he defended that his gray hair was “a display of power.”
These are the many headlines that the actress offered on why it matters to show off gray hair without fear of what they will say.
In her forties, she became obsessed with Jane Fonda’s gray hair:
“In my early 40s, my hair started growing out and every time my kids saw me, they assured me that my gray hair looked great. I tied a bow and it looked like two cans of salt and pepper, black and silver. I like to compare myself to George Clooney because why not? For a long time I thought it was about time I, personally, made this change because I felt it suited my personality and who I am. During imprisonment, I had a lot of free time and became obsessed with Jack Martin, who was combing Jane Fonda’s hair. I shared those photos of Jen with a lot of people and I was like, “Hey, I want to do this.”
His representative did not want him to leave:
“I got the job and very quickly I had to decide what to do. In fact, my manager told me: “This is not the time.” I imposed on myself: “I think you are wrong, I will become more powerful if I accept where I am now. This is the moment, because in two years I will be 65 years old. If I don’t now, I won’t have a chance to be salt and pepper. I’ve always wanted to be salt and pepper!”
Despite it being a reference to Jane Fonda, I couldn’t find famous women with that hair:
«I could not find references to such famous hair on the internet. My inspiration was not famous women. I started looking on Instagram. You know how social media works… Once you start watching something, they automatically show up. So on Instagram, all these manes that are turning silver, I started looking at them. I was watching real women who were transitioning to gray hair, as well as young women in their fifties who were going natural. You could watch the before and after, and I like the after. But everyone has their own personal taste! That’s my taste. I have two older sisters and they will probably color their hair forever. That’s it!”
Why wearing her hair like this is a movement that exudes power:
I Googled actors with salt and pepper hair. There are many men who do! One of them said that when he saw himself in dyed hair it looked like he was trying to look younger. I think this is what happened to me. I feel like the age on my face, for me, doesn’t match my hair anymore, in my personal opinion. Somehow, I think I look younger now because it looks more natural. It’s not like he’s trying to hide anything. I think it’s a movement, a show of power, and that’s what I was telling my managers. This is what i need to do now.
