Drew Barrymore covers the latest issue of New York Magazine, and in the interview, she talked about her daytime show, her therapist firing her, and her issues with her mother, Jaid Barrymore. Get ready for a whole lot of talk about self-love, therapy, radical honesty, ft. rain frolicking, and happy tears. I believe they call it The Drew Barrymore Special™.
Drew Barrymore Backs Out From Hosting The MTV Movie & TV Awards In Solidarity With The Writers’ Strike
Two things: the MTV Movie & TV Awards still happen. And Drew Barrymore was set to host the 30th (!!!) MTV Movie & TV Awards this Sunday, but not anymore. Drew has dropped out last minute in support of the Writers Guild of America’s strike. A win for Hollywood writers everywhere! But a loss for people hoping to see Drew Barrymore kick off her shoes and get cross-legged comfy on a couch before cozying up to the popcorn award to get deep.
Drew Barrymore And Brooke Shields Bonded Over Their “Weird” Stage Moms Being Obsessed With Them As Kids
Before momager Kris Jenner pimped out the Kardashians, there was Teri Shields– the mom of Brooke Shields. Brooke was on yesterday’s episode of The Drew Barrymore Show to promote her new documentary Pretty Baby, and she and Drew Barrymore trauma bonded about all the weird and horrible shit that came with growing up a child star and the roles their stage moms played in all that mess.
Nia Long Tells Drew Barrymore That She Wasn’t Selected For The “Charlie’s Angels” Movie Because She Looked “Too Old” And “Too Sophisticated”
Looking back on the 2000 hit movie version of Charlie’s Angels, it’s clear that it’s not the best film ever made. But bad or not, it solidified its stars Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu as the affirmative action cast we needed to combat the narrative of beautiful big-haired white broads portraying secret agents. Another gorgeous actress, Nia Long, was also being considered for a role in the film, but she was turned down for looking too old next to Drew. Years later, Nia is speaking out on it, and I think we all know what “too old” was really code for.
Ebenezer Scrooge, thy name is Drew Barrymore! In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Drew revealed that she doesn’t get her daughters gifts for Christmas. Instead, she prefers to take them on an annual holiday trip. Even though Drew says 10-year-old Olive and 8-year-old Frankie are at an age where they “don’t love” this unorthodox tradition, she believes the girls will remember a family trip more than some toys under a tree. She makes a good point. I have vivid memories of getting into screaming matches with my father on our family road trip through the Rockies (he never wanted to stop at McDonald’s), but the only Christmas gifts I can remember receiving were Leonard Maltin’s yearly movie review guides.
Many The Office diehards have fantasized about Kelly and Ryan’s running away together in the series finale leaking over into real life.

Novak, are never getting back together.
