INSIDE MARGARET QUALLEY'S RELATIONSHIP WITH HER MOM, ANDIE MACDOWELL
By MANUELLA LIBARDI
Alex and Paula's relationship in "Maid" is nothing like Margaret Qualley and Andie MacDowell's. "The nature of our relationship on-screen is entirely different from our real life," MacDowell told The Washington Post, adding, "We are very close.”
"It was a real dream getting to work with her. It was one of the more surreal experiences of my life. Across the board, there's the comfort of having your mom in the same place when you're in the middle of a pandemic and you're away from home for nine months," Qualley told Collider.
Working alongside her mother wasn't just a happy coincidence — Margaret Qualley actually wanted it. Speaking with Collider, Qualley explained she asked executive producer Margot Robbie what she thought about having Andie MacDowell step in as Paula.
