Actress Andie MacDowell was baffled to see rumours she was CHARLIE Chaplin's illegitimate daughter when once she surfed the internet.

The FOUR WEDDINGS + A FUNERAL star partly blames herself for the spread of the report because she had the chance to deny it when it first broke - but thought it too bizarre to comment on.

She says, "What happened was a friend was from Mexico and she went home to see her family and she found it in some little Mexican paper and she brought it back to me.

"I thought that was the craziest thing... That is just so random and crazy."
