Stoic Andie MacDowell still looked glamorous and groomed despite having to rely on two walking aides as she made her way to the Hallmark Channel TCA Winter Press Gala at the Huntington Beach Library, San Marino, California, on Friday.
According to Andie MacDowell’s spokesperson, she was snow shoeing over the holiday break and re-injured her knee.
The rep said: “Andie had surgery on her meniscus on Thursday and attended the Hallmark event Friday night.
“She’s feeling good.”

Andie MacDowell, who stars in the Hallmark Channel’s Cedar Cove, made sure she was dressed comfortably while not scrimping on the style.
She paired some loose fitting high-waisted black trousers with a grey patterned bat-wing top – showing just a hint of midriff.
Andie MacDowell also wore battered biker boots and wore her lustrous brunette hair down.
She posed for photographers without missing a beat, held up by her crutches, then posed without them as it appeared she could carry her own weight, just not walk unsupported.
Andie MacDowell’s work on the Cedar Cove series first starts with a two-hour movie that will serve as the pilot.
She stars as a small-town family court judge whose career affects the obligations of her daily life.
The movie and series are scheduled to air summer 2013.
Andie MacDowell has two daughters and a son and has been married twice.
Andie MacDowell celebrated her 54th birthday last month, but she certainly looks younger than her years.
In fact, Andie MacDowell seems to be getting younger every day.
And now it has been suggested that she may be attempting to turn back the clock – just like in her hit movie Groundhog Day.
Celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn, who has not treated the star, told Radar Online: “Andie looks like she’s used her Green Card for plastic surgery.”
Dr. Anthony Youn suggested Andie MacDowell may have had fillers in her face to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
He explained: “It appears that she’s undergone significant plumping and softening of her cheeks, likely by injections of her own fat.”
Adding: “Her forehead also looks relaxed, an appearance consistent with Botox injections. Her upper lip is also plump, causing her smile to look a bit Julia Roberts-esque.”

Andie MacDowell has not admitted to plastic surgery, but said when quizzed by Hello! magazine back in November: “I don’t judge anyone for what they do.
“But that said I have also known people who have had it done expecting it to change them and make them happy. Cutting a bit off this or that is not going to change the way you feel inside.”
Andie MacDowell was in Cannes for the International Film Festival last week.
And her fresh-faced look was only further enhanced when she posed up with her 17-year-old daughter Sarah on the red carpet at the event’s closing ceremony on Sunday.
Andie MacDowell wore a pale Giorgio Armani strapless, draped gown, while her daughter turned heads in a stunning Elie Saab design.
Sarah is Andie MacDowell’s youngest child with her first husband Paul Qualley; the former couple also have a son Justin, born in 1986, and a 22-year-old daughter Rainey, who was named as Miss Golden Globe 2012.
Andie MacDowell is currently starring in comedy Jane by Design, in which she plays a world-famous fashion designer.
