I Don't Know Why I'm Telling You This Right Now, But Andie MacDowell's Twitter Replies Are a Delight

Andie MacDowell, star of Sex Lies and Videotape, Groundhog Day, and (on occasion) the “tourist class” section of commercial airliners, loves to tweet. Her favorite categories of tweets include signal boosts for shelter animals in need of homes, inspirational quotes, and links to articles bashing Donald Trump. (“Liberal here,” she once wrote.) But what makes her account particularly special—what separates her from the now-typical category of unfiltered, devil-may-care celebrity Twitter account—are her replies.

MacDowell loves tweeting back! Though she’s not the only famous person who thanks fans for friendly remarks (or claps back at haters), she is the only Andie MacDowell. And imagining her sitting at a marble table in the breakfast nook of her newish LA home, sipping unsweetened iced tea while furiously responding to tweets on a wireless keyboard connected to an iPad Air sitting snugly a white case that she somehow manages to keep free from scuff marks is really doing something for me.

Take this exchange, for example. On Monday morning, one of MacDowell’s fans (let’s call them Fandies) sent the actress a photo of herself from a 1983 issue of Vogue, along with wishes for a blessed and joy-filled week.

Andie appeared to love this, and sent some joy right on back.

She loves sending joy, by the way.

On the other side of the spectrum, here’s MacDowell shutting down a hater with this succinct burn that I may use in the future.

Lately, MacDowell has been spending time making it very clear that she will not stand for anyone who defends Trumps lewd comments about pussy grabbing.

It’s sort of...how do I put this. Cher-lite?

I’m not recommending that you follow Andie right away (the number of inspirational retweets and adoption notices from shelters outside your area can be a little much), but if you need a reprieve from Ken Bone or scary clowns, a few minutes with Andie might be a nice distraction.

She is not an actress with a ton of range, but she does have such a gentle aura about her that comes through in every role. One of my favorites was her med student character in Saint Elmo’s Fire. She doesn’t have much to say or do other than basically be ethereal, but she is perfect for the job. I couldn’t find my favorite scene when she’s trying to explain to Emilio Estevez—who is obsessed with her—why she’s actually imperfect and unworthy of his adoration. So she brings him back to her messy apartment where she points out her dowdy roommate and says “This is my roommate. She hates me” and the roommate looks at him, shrugs, and deadpans “Yeah, I hate her” and walks away. This clip is where their story ends:
