JUST weeks after her best friend Cameron Diaz touched down in Australia, Hollywood’s darling, Drew Barrymore is set to do the same for the premiere of her latest film Miss You Already.
Barrymore, who stars in the emotional comedy-drama with Aussie actor Toni Collette, is expected to arrive here ahead of the September 30 screening.
Barrymore, 40, and Collette, 42, will walk the red carpet at the Sydney State Theatre to not only promote the film, but to help fund research for the National Breast Cancer Foundation in partnership with Entertainment One Films.
The film, directed by Catherine Hardwicke from a screenplay by Morwenna Banks, follows two best friends as they navigate the highs and lows of life and a shocking cancer diagnosis.
The visit will be Barrymore’s first official outing since the birth of her second child, Frankie.
The mother of two has previously said she struggled to return to work because she was so satisfied with life as a mother and wife.
“I didn’t think I could go back to work honestly. I didn’t want to be away from my kids and it just wasn’t the priority.”
