    • Drew: I still feel like I have a lot to prove. My biggest burning question is 'How much more are you capable of?'

    • Drew: I did love horror films from the '70s and '80s. That was my sweet spot.

    • Drew: The low points I had all helped make up my character, so I probably wouldn't want to do away with them because I like being flawed and I like having them help me grow and change and become better and stronger.

    • 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: I used to look in the mirror and feel shame, I look in the mirror now and I absolutely love myself.

    • Drew: I never want to get to the point where it's all about my needs, and the hell with anybody else.

    • Drew: I don't know anybody's road who's been paved perfectly for them, there are no manuals, you don't know what life has in store for you.

    • Drew: I'd definitely be the kind of parent who enabled my child's dreams. I'd just watch and nurture and guide them. I have the blueprints of what not to do... I think I'd be a good parent, actually.

    • Drew: I'd definitely be the kind of parent who enabled my child's dreams. I'd just watch and nurture and guide them. I have the blueprints of what not to do... I think I'd be a good parent, actually.

    • Drew: 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.

    • Drew: I didn't grow up in a traditional family, and I never had a family dinner around the table, so whenever I actually had a dinner 'plan,' it meant a lot to me; it made me feel excited and safe.

    • Drew: I didn't grow up in a traditional family, and I never had a family dinner around the table, so whenever I actually had a dinner 'plan,' it meant a lot to me; it made me feel excited and safe.

    • Drew: Being a Barrymore didn't help me, other than giving me a great sense of pride and a strange spiritual sense that I felt OK about having the passion to act. It made sense because my whole family had done it and it helped rationalize it for me.

    • Drew: Whatever I've experienced in my life is a part of my story, and I'm proud of that. But it's someone who wakes up early, works all day, believes in charitable work, business-minded, diligent, accountable, problem-solving... I'm so much about school, consistency and tradition.

    • Drew: There are a lot of us little gypsies out there that need to go and find another place you know. A safer, healthier or just a different venue in order to develop and find ourselves. I am so lucky to live the life that I do.

    • Drew: Kissing in the movies is a real art - figuring out where to put your heads so it looks good on camera. I have had other co-stars who couldn't work that out, which made it a lot harder for me.

    • Drew: I started finding hearts in things - whether it was like, a tree I was passing, a straw wrapper on the ground; I think the heart has one continuous line, which is very powerful.

    • Drew: I love working with the actors eye-to-eye. I think something gets lost in translation, not only through a monitor, but when you leave the area where the actual scene is taking place.

    • Drew: I love Tate Modern; there's such great style and shopping here. I love the galleries and the pubs out on the street, just having your pint as the sun is setting.

    • Drew: I grew up in a family that was multifaceted, sexually oriented, and pretty much open to everything. And because I was working, my friends were all adults. I had a tough time going to different schools because people knew me from films and I was the fat child who got beaten up every day.

    • Drew: I cannot live a life where I'm deprived. I'd much rather be five, 10 pounds heavier. With my luck, I'll get myself to that perfect goal weight, and I'll get hit by a bus. Then I'll be like... looking at myself from some afterlife going, 'You idiot. You could have had that agnolotti, dummy.'

    • Drew: I appreciate my journey, but I don't want that for my kid. Not any of it. It has nothing to do with whether I liked my childhood. I really did. But as a parent, that isn't the childhood that I'd provide.

    • Drew: I have to say, if someone literally said to me, 'You're going off to a desert island, what is the one thing you would bring?' I would say, 'It's my concealer or you can just kill me now.' I've thought this through! Because I would find, like, berries in a bowl and make blush.

    • Drew: I've always been a homemaker, like, I like creating spaces. Even if I stay in a hotel, I'll unpack, I'll put my books out, I'll put my camera out, I'll throw a sweater over the lamp to get better light. I am a homemaker.

    • Drew: I think that we all have to have that rite of passage of dating the tortured artist who seems cooler than we think we are; we aspire to be like them, and we're excited that somebody is turning us on to new music or a new lifestyle.

    • Drew: The best kind of parent you can be is to lead by example.

    • Drew: I still, at hotel rooms, I do this one sort of not-so-cool thing: continually shoving my room service tray in front of someone else's door. Because I don't want the remnants. I don't want to be caught, like, being like the pig that I was at two in the morning.

    • Drew: I remember being on film sets when I was younger, and only men got to do the cool action movies. So I thought, 'Maybe I'll get to produce one day and get to do cool stuff too,' which is what happened when we did 'Charlie's Angels.' Starting my production company was a big turning point for me.

    • Drew: I think some of the funniest and most artistic people I know are the ones who had a hard time at school. They often have humility and artistry. So, as much as I feel bad for kids who have to go through a rough childhood, I believe that if they can turn it around, it's going to make them better people later on.

So, as much as I feel bad for kids who have to go through a rough childhood, I believe that if they can turn it around, it's going to make them better people later on.

    • Drew: I love inventive food, but I want the classic dishes to taste like how I remember them. I get a little bummed out when there is too much fancy stuff going on and it doesn't resemble the original dish at all.

    • Drew: I still, at hotel rooms, I do this one sort of not-so-cool thing: continually shoving my room service tray in front of someone else's door. Because I don't want the remnants. I don't want to be caught, like, being like the pig that I was at two in the morning.

    • Drew: I don't mind a little Sturm und Drang. When I was doing 'Riding in Cars With Boys,' I wouldn't smile at anybody, because my character, Bev, was angry at the world. I'm the opposite. Inside my head I'd be like, God, I'll explain to you at the end of shooting that I'm not this person.

    • Drew: California is an unbelievable state. One day I might be in a spiritual place like Joshua Tree, then before I know it, I'm eating groovy sushi in a mini-mall. I'm a Cali girl through and through.

    • Drew: I love inventive food, but I want the classic dishes to taste like how I remember them. I get a little bummed out when there is too much fancy stuff going on and it doesn't resemble the original dish at all.

    • Drew: The people I grew up around who I really liked were quick on the draw. It always just wowed me. And my mum would make weird funny comments. I can see in myself her self-deprecating, hippie humour. I can't take myself too seriously.

    • Drew: It's the worst when you're kissing someone who's not a good kisser, and you're trying to make it look good, but you feel like you're just working on your own.

    • Drew: The people I grew up around who I really liked were quick on the draw. It always just wowed me. And my mum would make weird funny comments. I can see in myself her self-deprecating, hippie humour. I can't take myself too seriously.

    • Drew: Producing is so exciting because you can enable things to happen, whether it's like discovering a filmmaker who you're taking a chance on, protecting a battle and driving home at the end of the day just going, 'I'm so glad I stayed late at work and fought hard for that. Had my passion. Won that battle.'

    • Drew: I love roller coasters that make my stomach drop. One ride in Las Vegas, the Big Shot, straps you into a row of seats and catapults you into the air from the top of the Stratosphere Tower - then plummets back down. I ride it over and over; it's exhilarating.

    • Drew: My life takes me all over the world, and I know how hard that can be on a relationship.

    • Drew: Of course I want to look good in clothes. And it never makes me feel good when somebody who has an insane figure tells me, 'I eat whatever I want.'

    • Drew: I try to be a good shiksa wife. I go to Central Synagogue in New York.

    • Drew: It's only through listening that you learn, and I never want to stop learning.

    • Drew: I have certainly had my share of long-distance love affairs.

    • Drew: A thank-you can be just as meaningful as a soulful ten-page message.

    • Drew: I mean, I come from a hippie mentality where I just think to know someone, you need to look into their eyes. Eyes are so important. Until they start melon-balling eyes out, I won't be able to get to know someone another way.

    • Drew: Putting your name on something and having no idea how it came about if someone else did all the work - that's not me.

    • Drew: It's my crusade to help women feel good about themselves.

    • Drew: I was 14 when I moved into my own apartment. I was so scared. I didn't know anything.

    • Drew: Families in real life don't tend to resolve things neatly.

    • 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'm so in control of my life, you shouldn't dislike anything I do-because I'm not only in the best place I've ever been, but it keeps getting better and better.

    • Drew: There's a hunger and a fervor that I have, but there's no person I'm going to push to the side to get where I'm going. I want to create my own road.

    • Drew: I personally battled with my own body image for years. I used to tell myself, You can't wear anything sleeveless or strapless. And all of a sudden I was like, What if I just didn't send such negative messages to my brain and said, wear it and enjoy it? And now I'm more comfortable in clothes than ever.

    • Drew: The older you get, the few slumber parties there are, and I hate that. I liked slumber parties. What happened to them?

    • Drew: My own mum cared about Hollywood, and I didn't. I wanted to act, and I loved the creativity of it, but I didn't care for the lifestyle.

    • Drew: My own mum cared about Hollywood, and I didn't. I wanted to act, and I loved the creativity of it, but I didn't care for the lifestyle.

    • Drew: My life choices are not supposed to be the gateway to somebody else's. That's my journey.

    • Drew: I think the world offers so many wonderful varieties of obstacles, but that shouldn't be one for kids - is the worry that 'my parents wont be there.'

    • Drew: I never act my characters - I am them.

    • Drew: I have no regrets in my life whatsoever.

    • Drew: I hate women who say they can eat whatever they want, because I don't relate to that at all. It isn't fair! I absolutely live for food.

    • Drew: As I've gotten older, I've really wanted to find more balance and calm.

    • Drew: God made a very obvious choice when he made me voluptuous; why would I go against what he decided for me? My limbs work, so I'm not going to complain about the way my body is shaped.

    • Drew: Celebrity! It's become the most disgusting word on the planet. It makes me sick to my stomach.

    • Drew: It's embarrassing to go through any rebellious stage in front of people that you love and respect, and yet I'm glad I did.

    • Drew: When you're young, you're always wondering when you're actually going to feel like a grownup. And I think you probably fear it, in a sense, too. There's a danger to feeling like an adult... like this whimsical kid in you is going to die or something. And then all of a sudden, one day you kind of feel like an adult and it's really nice.

    • Drew: My whole life, I've wanted to feel comfortable in my skin. It's the most liberating thing in the world.

    • Drew: When things are perfect, that's when you need to worry most.

    • Drew: I'm such a profound believer that timing is everything; I would tattoo that on my arm.

    • Drew: If you're going to be alive and on this planet, you have to, like, suck the marrow out of every day and get the most out of it.

    • Drew: A few years ago, I bought an old red bicycle with the words Free Spirit written across its side - which is exactly what I felt like when I rode it down the street in a tie-dyed dress.

    • Drew: I'm a total control freak and love to participate in the design of every single aspect of life.

    • Drew: It wasn't my choice to be an open book, but when people found out what my life was like when I was 14 or 15, I didn't deny it. I think the more imperfect you are, the more human you are.

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

    • Drew: I've been a vegetarian for years and years. I'm not judgmental about others who aren't, I just feel I cannot eat or wear living creatures.

    • Drew: I have always been fond of recognizing the spiritual side of someone's personality. It's a very lovely concept.

    • Drew: I don't like camera trickery and editing and doubles and all of that.

    • Drew: I'm very sensitive to the English language. I studied the dictionary obsessively when I was a kid and collect old dictionaries. Words, I think, are very powerful and they convey an intention.

    • Drew: I guess I do have a childlike sense of fun, and although I still have my dark days, I'm generally an optimistic person. The way things have gone in my life, sure, I could have been a bitter person. But I just find bitter people really un-fun, you know? And who wants to be that person?

    • Drew: I don't want to be stinky poo poo girl, I want to be happy flower child.

    • Drew: Whether you're throwing up or breaking up, you want your girlfriend right there! I don't trust women who don't go to their girlfriends.

    • Drew: I want people to love me, but it's not going to hurt me if they don't.

    • Drew: I'm not after fame and success and fortune and power. It's mostly that I want to have a good job and have good friends; that's the good stuff in life.

    • Drew: I love romance. I'm a sucker for it. I love it so much. It's pathetic.

    • Drew: My mother used to dress rather risque when I was a kid, and that sort of shocked me. I always thought moms were supposed to wear cardigans and flats, but she was in leather bracelets and mini-dresses. In hindsight, it was pretty cool, but I'm probably more conservative because of it.

    • Drew: I loved the world of roller derby because I thought it was such an empowering metaphor, that you get out there and do it. It's such a rocker, athletic, capable, cool exhibitionist sport; it's about this great sort of camaraderie.

    • Drew: I'm a carb queen. I'll always order macaroni and cheese, but I don't want it to be fancy. I want it to be as close to Kraft Services as it can possibly get!

    • Drew: And people say it all the time: 'You're a celebrity.' No, I'm an actor. I'm a producer. I'm a director. I'm a toad. I'm roadkill. I'm anything but a celebrity.

    • Drew: Having fun is fantastic, and I never want to lose a sense of that - and also, I think, you have to have that to put into your work, or else it's going to feel stiff.

    • Drew: I really have created a family. I work with the people I love, I travel with them, I make films with them, and I'm in an office with them. So in a weird way - I know I haven't birthed a child - I feel that I'm a part of creating a family. It's a tribe. I love that word.

    • Drew: If you're not prepared, and you're not passionate, and you don't push yourself to a level of human exhaustion on every level, mentally and physically and creatively... I've seen directors who approach it casually, and they do somehow maintain better hours... but I could never be that guy. I am up and editing all night.

    • Drew: My therapist says I still haven't got in touch with my anger. Maybe one day I'm going to explode. But I'm still really happy. I know it looks like a strange and painful upbringing - all those experiences led me to the paths that I'm on now.

    • Drew: I'm a bit of a control freak.

    • Drew: I just want to make sure I have a sense of balance between work and life, because work is my life and the lines can get really blurry.

    • Drew: I love the very exposed, humorous, imperfect, never-trying to-pretend-to-be-perfect journey that I have been on in my life.

    • Drew: A fish may love a bird, but where would they live?

    • Drew: There's something liberating about not pretending. Dare to embarrass yourself. Risk.

    • Drew: From my perspective, there's no reason to be afraid of aging, because if you age, you're lucky! The alternative is death.

    • Drew: I've approached so many things in my life with such intensity that I want to approach motherhood with dedication and focus.

    • Drew: You can't live your life blaming your failures on your parents and what they did or didn't do for you. You're dealt the cards that you're dealt. I realized it was a waste of time to be angry at my parents and feel sorry for myself.

    • Drew: At 35, I'm definitely starting to feel more like a grown-up than I ever have. There's nothing in my life that is childish or whimsical. Having fun is fantastic and I never want to lose a sense of that - and also, I think, you have to have that to put into your work or else it's going to feel stiff.

    • Drew: Sometimes I bust out and do things so permanent. Like tattoos and marriage.

    • Drew: When I lay my head on the pillow at night I can say I was a decent person today. That's when I feel beautiful.

    • Drew: I never have been insecure, because I see what a waste it is. I know there is a solution to insecurity. I don't tend to be thrown by problems that don't have solutions. And insecurity has a wealth of alternatives.

    • Drew: Becoming emancipated at 14, my life wasn't normal. I didn't have to go to school, so I didn't. I was rebellious by nature. I spent my 20s focusing on my company, Flower Films, and producing movies. Now that I'm almost 30, I would like to try other things in lie. I'm crazy about photography, and I want to take an art history class.

    • Drew: Oh, I would love to be a motivational speaker. I have pulled myself out of a million potholes, and I can see the potholes ahead of me. That doesn't mean that I could always do that so perfectly for my own life. I totally fall in potholes.

    • Drew: I'm such an avid magazine reader - music, art, beauty magazines - and I found that food and restaurants were pouring into everything I cared about. Whether it was the pop-up concept, or some mysterious mini-mall restaurant, I got swept up in the sexy romance of the food movement.

    • Drew: I grew up in a makeup chair. And to see the women around me getting ready was so aspirational. It's about mothers and daughters, a girl watching her mom at a vanity table.

    • Drew: In a world and a life that moves so fast, photography just makes the sound go out and it makes you stop and take a pause. Photography calms me.

    • Drew: You're not supposed to look perfect while you're making babies. Making babies is the perfection. It's about feeling good in clothes and knowing you can get dressed up in the evening, work it for a minute, and maybe get back in a certain pair of jeans. But there's just no such thing as perfection.

    • Drew: I pray to be like the ocean, with soft currents, maybe waves at times. More and more, I want the consistency rather than the highs and the lows.

    • Drew: I am not someone who is ashamed of my past. I'm actually really proud. I know I made a lot of mistakes, but they, in turn, were my life lessons.

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

    • Drew: I think that being happy makes the biggest impact on your physical appearance.

    • Drew: Love is the hardest habit to break, and the most difficult to satisfy.

    • Drew: The stories that I want to tell, especially as a director, don't necessarily have a perfect ending because, the older you get, the more you appreciate a good day versus a happy ending. You understand that life continues on the next day; the reality of things is what happens tomorrow.

    • Drew: Everyone is like a butterfly, they start out ugly and awkward and then morph into beautiful graceful butterflies that everyone loves.

    • Drew: It's never too late. Don't focus on what was taken away. Find something to replace it, and acknowledge the blessing you have.

    • Drew: I've always said that one night, I'm going to find myself in some field somewhere, I'm standing on grass, and it's raining, and I'm with the person I love, and I know I'm at the very point I've been dreaming of getting to.

    • Drew: I think happiness is a choice. If you feel yourself being happy and can settle in to the life choices you make, then it's great. It's really, really great. I swear to God, happiness is the best makeup.

    • Drew: Life is very interesting... in the end, some of your greatest pains, become your greatest strengths.

    • Drew: There's a tremendous difference between alone and lonely. You could be lonely in a group of people. I like being alone. I like eating by myself. I go home at night and just watch a movie or hang out with my dog. I have to exert myself and really say, oh God, I've got to see my friends 'cause I'm too content being by myself.

    • Drew: I was raised in that generation where it was all 'Women can have it all!' and I don't think you can. I think something falls off the table. The good thing is that the things that stay on the table become so much more important.

    • Drew: When I was a kid, I got really great advice from someone who is so important to me and someone who I respect so much, and they told me, 'Don't do too many endorsements. Don't throw your name on things; think of your longevity.'

    • Drew: The way things have gone in my life, sure, I could have been a bitter person. But I just find bitter people really un-fun, you know? And who wants to be that person?

    • Drew: I decided very early on that it took too much of my energy to pretend to be someone else. People will make up their minds about me whatever I do or say, but at least I know I am being true to myself.

    • Drew: I can't wait until I have my children. I love the idea that they don't have to do something that they have no interest in, that they can do something completely opposite if they want to.

    • Drew: When you work in film, you learn to appreciate a distributor. You can have this great little film, but if you don't have a distributor, you are sitting in your living room with a great little film.

    • Drew: I hate flatscreens. I don't want to see anything in that much pixilation. I don't need to see the pimple on someone's face. I love the world through glass. The more old, dusty and tainted that glass is, the prettier and more impressionistic that is to me. I don't need to see everything perfectly. I don't like it.

    • Drew: I've produced and gotten to do a lot of optimistic love stories, and that was so where I was at for 10 years in my life. And now I feel like, Okay, now I know how to do that. I want to get scared again; I want to feel the way I felt when I started my company, when I started producing.

    • Drew: Great dad. Yeah, he would ask me for money on birthdays and, you know, inappropriate times. And I just wrote him off like, 'You're not a father.' I just learned you cannot emotionally invest in people who are not attainable.

    • Drew: When I did 'E.T.,' it sort of solidified the only family I know are these film crews. These gypsies. These filmmakers. That was the solidification and the clicking revelations of 'This is what I want to do with my life and this is where I'm going to survive.'

    • Drew: I remember being on film sets when I was younger, and only men got to do the cool action movies. So I thought, 'Maybe I'll get to produce one day and get to do cool stuff, too,' which is what happened when we did 'Charlie's Angels'.

    • Drew: Going back to Georgiana Drew and John Drew, and my great-grandfather Maurice Barrymore, and it was such a sort of circus of odd, interesting people that loved acting.

    • Drew: It's not just about acting. I love film, I'm a director now, I love writing, I love producing, I love having a company that makes films and to be prolific and have a place to put all the ideas that are constantly bubbling up inside of me and that don't let me sleep at night.

    • Drew: I feel like some of my baby fat is going away, and that's not just physically, it's psychologically. I think that your body is in tune with your mind and your spirituality and your heart. If things are going better, I just think you look better.

    • 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
