There are some people who the camera just loves. Perhaps that's why many models make the leap to acting.

Models who act - Andie MacDowell

20th Century Fox

Barely out of her teens, Andie MacDowell signed a contract with Elite Model Management in New York City in 1978. She went on to model for Vogue magazine in the early 1980s and appeared in ad campaigns for Yves Saint Laurent, Armani perfume and Anne Klein, but it was a series of billboards and national commercials for Calvin Klein that earned her an audition for her 1984 film debut in "Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes." She's since had roles in movies like "Sex, Lies & Videotape," "Groundhog Day" and "Four Weddings & a Funeral."
