Meghan Markle copied Andie MacDowell’s haircut but “looked like Crusty the Clown”
Meghan Markle revealed that she copied Andie MacDowell’s haircut, but ended up being called “Crusty the Clown” by her peers at school.
Meghan was only 13 when she decided to copy the Hollywood actress by getting her exact haircut, but when she finally got the new hairstyle, everything went wrong after day one.
The Duchess had started to idolize Andie’s style after seeing her in the British romantic comedy, Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994), where Andie plays Hugh Grant’s on-screen lover, Carrie.
Meghan opened up about her horrific hair loss on Ellen Degeneres’ daytime talk show.
She said: “I was obsessed with Andie MacDowell in Four Weddings and a Funeral, and all I wanted was that perfect little curly haircut.”
Viewers then saw a photo of a much younger Meghan with her Andie hairstyle characterized by curls.
Speaking about the first time she had her hair cut, she said: “And that first day I was like, ‘It’s amazing, I look like Andie MacDowell in Four Weddings and a Funeral.” . “
Prince Harry’s glamorous wife then started laughing as she explained how her hair started to change shape in ways she never expected, due to her ethnic hair.
She said: “Then it was like everyone forgot to tell me ‘you have ethnic hair, you’re not going to look like Andie MacDowell in Four Weddings and a Funeral’.
The studio audience burst into laughter as Meghan admitted she received teasing from people at school after revealing her new locks.
She said, “And that’s when it started to evolve, and I was going to school and they said I looked like Crusty the Simpsons Clown!”
Ellen and her studio gave the royal a sympathetic “aww” as Meghan added: “It was a real bummer.”
Also in the interview, Meghan dared to do a series of stunts by Ellen – one of which involved her squatting in public and declaring that she had “healing powers”.
Meghan was tasked with claiming that she was somehow an expert in spiritual healing.
For that, she had to demonstrate her “skills” by saying “Look at me!” Before enthusiastically touching all the items on a vendor’s display table.
Meghan married Harry on May 19 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.
