Drew Barrymore looks gorgeous on the new cover of Elle Magazine…she gives off that cool vibe…love her! I never pegged her as a workaholic…some who loves what she does but not a workaholic! And she is!!
On taking stock of where she is now: â€œFor three years straight, Iâ€™ve been burning the candle at both ends, and as of last December, I just didnâ€™t have anything left. Iâ€™ve been so aggressive about living life to the fullest and being plugged into everything, but now Iâ€™ve ripped the plug out of the wall and put it on the floor for a while. Iâ€™m thinking about the same things as when I was 15, about spirituality and who I am, who I want to be. Itâ€™s cocoon, pupa, larva, and fuck, Iâ€™m reborn!â€
On the mediaâ€™s misconceptions of her: â€œI make movies. I have a passion. Puppies and daisies donâ€™t accomplish anything. Thatâ€™s not me at all.â€
On being single: â€œIf youâ€™re 35 and single and itâ€™s a choice, it feels fine. So I didnâ€™t settle with the wrong person yet. Big deal!â€
On her upcoming role in Going the Distance: â€œI like that itâ€™s not a traditional romantic comedy, with the story line of, â€˜Oh, I slept with this guy, but when I woke up, I found out heâ€™s the CEO of my company, and weâ€™re going to live happily ever after once we go through all these crazy perils. I talk shit with my girlfriends. And it can get dirty.â€
On why sheâ€™s not afraid to get older: â€œI donâ€™t want to be vain or fearful, and I donâ€™t think Iâ€™ll do anything [in terms of plastic surgery], but if I want to do something, I will. From my perspective, thereâ€™s no reason to be afraid of aging, because if you age, youâ€™re lucky! The alternative is death.â€
On child stardom: â€œI was raised in unique and trying environments, but they were also amazing platforms for me to have an extraordinary life. Going through hell as a kid made me sensitive to what others in this world go through too.â€
