Andie MacDowell discourages daughters from becoming actresses
Although the `Four Weddings and a Funeral` star has enjoyed a successful career, she admitted she was worried when 17-year-old Sarah Margaret - who she refers to simply as Margaret - and Rainey, 22, told her they wanted to follow in their mother`s footsteps.
Andie told YOU magazine: "I tried to talk them into doing something less stressful. Because while what I do is beautiful, it`s not easy. But I do like the idea of Margaret doing some stage training while she`s still young which I didn`t do."
However, Andie isn`t worried about her kids and revealed sensible Margaret is "reliable and motivated".
She added: "Wherever she ends up, I know I`ll never have to worry about her. I let her move to New York City alone aged 16 because I knew it was right for her. She`s just a really good kid. I think it`s partly the discipline from her years of dancing and partly her personality but I`ve never had to worry about her getting in trouble. She`s so talented and motivated."
