I've always loved Drew Barrymore. And I love her little quirk -- you know how she talks out of the side of her mouth? But only in candid interviews -- on screen she makes a conscious effort to not do that.
I was in a bar on the Lower East Side a few years ago an Drew came in with her then-boyfriend Fabrizio Moretti from The Strokes. They played pool and she is so adorable in person (Fab was, too).
She's a bit anti-Hollywood, but comes from a family of actors. And I love that she told Elle magazine that plastic surgery just isn't her thing.
Sure we can say ... wait until she has kids or wait until her neck starts sagging, but at least she isn't like Heidi Montag getting tons of procedures at 23. Drew is 35 by the way -- and she's not scared of getting older.
"I don't want to be vain or fearful, and I don't think I'll do anything [in terms of plastic surgery], but if I want to do something, I will. From my perspective, there's no reason to be afraid of aging, because if you age, you're lucky! The alternative is death," she said.
She shares even more in Elle's August issue.
On taking stock of where she is now: "For three years straight, I've been burning the candle at both ends, and as of last December, I just didn't have anything left. I've been so aggressive about living life to the fullest and being plugged into everything, but now I've ripped the plug out of the wall and put it on the floor for a while. I'm thinking about the same things as when I was 15, about spirituality and who I am, who I want to be. It's cocoon, pupa, larva, and fu*k, I'm reborn!"
On the media's misconceptions of her: "I make movies. I have a passion. Puppies and daisies don't accomplish anything. That's not me at all."
On being single: "If you're 35 and single and it's a choice, it feels fine. So I didn't settle with the wrong person yet. Big deal!"
On her upcoming role in Going the Distance: "I like that it's not a traditional romantic comedy, with the story line of, ‘Oh, I slept with this guy, but when I woke up, I found out he's the CEO of my company, and we're going to live happily ever after once we go through all these crazy perils. I talk sh*t with my girlfriends. And it can get dirty."
I love her even more.
What so you think of Drew's thoughts on plastic surgery and being single at 35?
