Paul Qualley

Paul Qualley is mostly known for being the husband of Andie MacDowell. The two were the power couple of Hollywood until they got a divorce. Nevertheless, Paul was such a fun guy and still remains the same. So, we try to see what he has been up to, his life, and his children too.

Ethnicity, Early Life, and Education

Paul Qualley was born to former model parents Lee James Qualley and Patricia Ann. He was born on March 14, 1958, in NYC, US. He is 64 years as of 2022.

Paul is simply an American with a Norwegian ethnicity thanks to his parents who had immigrated to the US before he was born.

Paul Qualley has a height of 6 feet and 2 inches with blue eyes and brown hair.

As for his education, Paul attended a local high school and earned a bachelor’s degree in 1980 from college.

Paul’s Career

Just because he was married to a movie star does not mean he did not have anything going for him.

Modeling was his first career. It is something he was always fascinated with when he was young. The moment he was old enough to choose a career, he picked it up and ran with it.

His good looks made it easy for him to be a model. He easily landed well-paying jobs as a model on runways and ads. He even traveled across Europe and US during his 20s and 30s working as a model.

Other than being a model, he also worked as an actor and did music too. You can say he was into the entertainment space a lot.

In his 40s, Qualley opted to get into the contracting business. He then focused more on growing his ranch business. You can now find the Paul Qualley ranch in Montana, USA.

As much as he is no longer modeling, his accomplishments as a model left a mark in such a vibrant industry. We could also wish he did more in terms of his music career. You can find a track he released called Please Please on YouTube.
