As her new Hallmark Channel character revisits relationships in her past, Andie MacDowell focuses on a future with someone special by her side. During an appearance on The Late Late Show With James Corden, star of Hallmark’s new hit series, “The way home,” confirmed that after years of being single and refusing to look for love online, she was convinced by her adult daughters to join a dating app. Not sure how to start, she had fun letting Corden and fellow guest Billy Porter do an impromptu photoshoot for her profile picture and offer advice as she dives into a new era of dating.

MacDowell, 64, has been married twice, according to the TODAY Show – first to former model Paul Qualley from 1986 to 1999 and again to businessman Rhett Hartzog from 2001 to 2004. Though she hasn’t been against dating in the years since, MacDowell recounted in July 2022 the Sunday Times She had no interest in dating apps.
“If someone came in and enriched my life, someone I would be romantic with, maybe have sex with. I would accept it,” she said. “But to tell the truth, they just don’t show up. And I don’t go on an app. It’s not going to happen.”
However, MacDowell has since changed her tune. On January 24, 2023 while MacDowell’s “Late Late Show” performanceCorden said he heard her daughters — Rainey and Margaret — convinced her to go along with it Dating app Raya.
According to page six Raya exclusively serves influencers, artists and people from the entertainment industry. Celebrities who have admitted to joining the app in the past include Lizzo, John Mayer, Demi Lovato, Drew Barrymore, Chelsea Handler and Nick Kroll, who met his wife on it.
“I resisted it at first,” MacDowell told Corden, adding that she’s since warmed to the idea but has told her daughters she wants to dress someone who’s okay with the fact that she’s very laid-back.
“They didn’t like that idea,” she said. “I thought I’d say, ‘Don’t expect much, I don’t feel like working very hard.’ Something like that for me in hiking clothes.”
Corden and Porter joked that she might as well just type “Google me” and not even add a profile picture. When Corden asked when she wanted to join Raya, MacDowell started saying “as soon as possible,” but then recalled that she didn’t have a good profile picture and needed help deciding what to use.
When Corden offered to take one on the spot, MacDowell exclaimed, “Let’s do it, please!”
With Porter hilariously using a cue card as a fan, as a professional photoshoot might have done, and Corden using his cell phone to snap pictures, MacDowell tried out multiple poses – from cheerful to serious too joking to give her cleavage a boost.
As the trio laughed, Porter exclaimed, “You’re going to get a lot of dates, girl!”

The morning after her “Late Late Show” performance, Jan. 25, MacDowell shared on her Instagram Stories that while it was fun getting ready for the night, she was looking forward to getting back into nature get.

MacDowell also posted a video from a pile of roadside mailboxes and wrote, “Hike today! Hate gossip…love the sound of birds and Mr. Rogers”
She continued, “I am very concerned that our society is much more interested: in information than in miracles. In noise instead of silence. How shall we do it?”
MacDowell’s latest role as Del Landry – a farmer’s wife and grandma on The Way Home – fits well with her personality and lifestyle today, and her desire to portray aging women as strong and dynamic.
Beginning of January, she told Parade magazine, “Hollywood shapes our social ideas and our culture. We are committed to the idea that men can age, but women cannot.”
Allowing yourself to embrace your age instead of hiding it has even made dating “better,” she told the Sunday Times, noting that growing her gray hair during COVID lockdowns has meant men haven’t expect her to be someone she is not.
“I may have looked younger and more acceptable to someone before,” she said, “but I want to be appreciated for where I am, for my age. And the response from the men was, ‘You look beautiful.’”
