Elle Magazine August Cover Girl: Drew Barrymore

July 21, 2010 § 1 Comment

When I think of Drew Barrymore, I date back to the movie, ET, when she was a pig-tail wearing little girl, 50 First Dates to her upcoming film, Going the Distance.  Elle’s August cover girl candidly speaks on why she’s not afraid to be 35 and single and what it has been like being in the limelight most of her life.

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 fuck, 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 why she’s not afraid to get 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.”

On child stardom:

“I 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.”
