Drew Barrymore is everyone's golden girl, and not just because of her amazing blonde hair. The actress and producer made a string of movies we can watch on 24-hour repeat (Never Been Kissed, Whip It, Grey Gardens
...), and she still has time to star in the Cover Girl commercials.
Our beauty director, Holly Siegel, sat down with Drew in Los Angeles... On Being Perfect
"You have to not pretend to be perfect, because that's not only boring as fuck, but it's just not real...So I feel so liberated in that way. I just really want to be true to myself. That's essential in life. I would never be able to put on a charade. I would totally fuck it up."On her In-Between Period
"I had a big gap in my life where I wasn't allowed to work at all because no one would hire me, which was great because I think you need that humility. You have to have everything taken away, or you have to have a major reality check, so that you always appreciate what you have."On Simulating Phone Sex in her New Movie, Going the Distance.
"You know, phone sex going awry is just a funny concept to me and I thought, This is going to be one of those scenes where we have to go balls out, and if it doesn't work, it's going to be editing room floor crap."So Drew, where'd you get your jeans?
"I never have time for shopping... I've been wearing the same fucking pair of jeans for 10 years."
