I found this quote on Express.co.uk and thought it was wonderful!
DESPITE A tumultuous childhood which saw Drew Barrymore in rehab aged just 14 and legally emancipated from her mother at 17, the now married actress and mother of one feels that karma has bought her the settled life that she craved as a youngster.
“I won the in-laws jackpot,” says Drew, who married Will Kopelman in 2012.
“It might be the best karma for having one of the wackiest upbringings. I never had dinner with my mum or dad, let alone all together. It’s amazing to think that in life you can completely have a do-over.”
I love Tip Tuesday and this week gives us a special treat as Drew features co-star Bella Thorne in her tip. They are currently in South Africa filming Blended and Bella shares with us her favorite Flower products.
“The FLOWER Tip Tuesday video program is something I am very passionate about – I love to know what beauty fanatics are interested in and enjoy experimenting with new looks using some of my favorite products from my line,” Drew told JustJared. “I chose Bella to be a part of the program this week because she is both beautiful on the inside and out. She loves playing with beauty products as much as I do so we had a great time!”
In 2001 Drew played Beverly in Riding in Cars with Boys.
The comedy-drama RIDING IN CARS WITH BOYS (2001) is the fresh, funny, touching and unbelievably true story of writer Beverly Donofrio (played by Drew Barrymore, who ages from 15 to 35 in the role), who comes of age in the late 1960s and has her entire life colored by an event that happens when she is 15 years old. Directed by Penny Marshall in her first collaboration with Academy Award®-winning director/producer Jim Brooks since the smash hit “Big (1988),” the story spans over 20 years as it reveals this unlikely heroine’s often humorous, occasionally irreverent, always unique personal journey to make something of herself.
Life & Style talks with Drew about Cameron and a bunch of other fun stuff … they have given us a preview of the interview here.
Drew Barrymore may call bestie Cameron Diaz her “sister” — but they also have a bromance!
In an all-new My Life, My Style, the 38-year-old new mom dishes to Life & Style about her amazing friendship with Cam. But that’s not all! The gorgeous star answers a ton of our burning questions in the fun new interview. Get a sneak peek below:
I’m BFF-status with Cameron Diaz because…
She’s my sister, but we bro out and have crazy adventures. Most people don’t know this, but she’s very edgy.
My go-to accessory is…
A heart-shaped locket from my husband, Will Kopelman
My guilty pleasure is…
Carbs, carbs, carbs!
The fashion item I can’t live without…
Button-down flannel shirts. They’re easy, they’re grungy— but if worn right they can be more sexy than frumpy.
