Trivia and Quotes

  • Quotes

    • Drew: It's the best time of my life - it's not traumatic at all. I don't think I've ever been happier. It's like the older I get, the better I get. Gravity and wrinkles are fine with me. They're a small price to pay for the new wisdom inside my head and my heart. "If my breasts fall down to the floor and everything starts to sag and becomes hideous and gross, I won't worry.

    • Drew: I once got dumped by a guy twice! The second time I was like, 'Really? Are you sure now?'

    • Drew: (about being in ET at age seven) One day I was a little girl, and the next day, I was mobbed by people who wanted me to sign my autograph or pose for pictures. Some of them just wanted to touch me. It was crazy. I was this 7-year-old who was expected to be going on a mature 29.

    • Drew: I have mainly very positive things I like to feel about my parents. I think I inherited my mother's incredible spirit and enthusiasm for life, her humour, her passion for music. Even though we don't see each other very much.

    • Drew: I've never really understood how I should feel or behave in a relationship... I didn't have the kind of childhood or family life that would have given me any perspective on what a happy home life or relationship would feel like. My father was literally out of his mind and my mother was more like a friend than a real mom to me. She would take me out to clubs and I wound up feeling like part of this very unreal kind of world, although that was the only world I ever knew growing up.

    • Drew: (revealing her top dating tip) The only fundamental rule for me is to just be yourself. Let your freak-flag fly, and if someone doesn't get you, move on.

    • Drew: I'm a sexual, free, f***ing nudist little bird running around and a wood nymph when it comes to sexuality.

    • Drew: I am a yin and a yang Piscean. I'm an extremist, I'm a polarity. No wonder I'm a schizophrenic.

    • Drew: My mom is an interesting character. She's well-read, lived in amazing times, has great stories... but when you're a kid, you don't want your mother to be that person. You don't want to hear that Mick Jagger's in the bedroom.

    • Drew: If I die before my cat, I want a little of my ashes put in his food so I can live inside him.

    • Drew: When you've been locked up in a mental institution, people are going to ask questions. It was OK, because I didn't have to act perfect all the time.

    • Drew: If you're going to go through hell... I suggest you come back learning something.

    • Drew: I believe that everything happens for a reason, but I think it's important to seek out that reason - that's how we learn.

    • Drew: Do I like women sexually? Yeah, I do. Totally. I have always considered myself bisexual. I love a woman's body. I think that a woman and a woman together are beautiful, just as a man and a woman together are beautiful. Being with a woman is like experiencing your own body through someone else...I totally love it.

    • Drew: Kissing - and I mean like, yummy, smacking kissing - is the most delicious, most beautiful and passionate thing that two people can do, bar none. Better than sex, hands down.

    • Drew: I know certain actors are totally screwed up on drugs, yet it gets covered up. Why wasn't I excused for 'exhaustion' or 'the flu'?

    • Drew: I never regret anything. Because every little detail of your life is what made you into who you are in the end.

  • She keeps me laughing

    I first remembered her as that cute little baby face kid in the movie, "E.T." which is one of my classic favorites. Yes, I'm a sci-fi lover. But the years later, her acting parts seem to be pretty much the same, "the blonde, party girl."



    But when I was really impressed with her, and when I really saw her acting talent, was when she did the movie, "Ever After," which has since, become my favorite 'Cinderella Story.' I was amazed when I read her biography. With such a tough legacy to live up to and then dealing with all the emotional trauma, she still manages to keep a smile on her face in all her guest appearances and interviews. I've enjoyed her other movies, my favorites being; "Music and Lyrics," both "Charlie's Angels," "Duplex," and "Never Been Kissed." This person is a self-made woman.moreless
