2nd Annual Baby2Baby Gala Honoring Drew Barrymore - Arrivals

Drew Barrymore doesn’t think she is a great actor. Say whaaat! Barrymore, an actor since she was a baby told the NYTimes she has followed the advice of her godfather Steven Spielberg when he told her when it comes to acting, “Steven told me, ‘Don’t act your characters. Be your characters.’ 

She added, “I don’t think I’m a good actor. I feel like it’s fake and yucky and it doesn’t ring true. But if you research and you study and make it personal, you just become that person, and it’s your truth and everything else around you falls away. Then you’re telling the truth, it’s not lying, it’s not fake. At 6, I guess I was comfortable and more humorous than I would have remembered now. But once I got older and kept continuing acting, I don’t know if I would have succeeded without that advice, because that’s the thing that saved me. I’m not an actor, I’m a pretender.”

I think Drew is an adorable actress.
