In The Latest Entertainment News Of All Things Drew Barrymore
Drew Barrymore has been a Hollywood favorite for years since her early childhood in the classic films, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and Firestarter.
Despite growing pains in the earlier parts of her career, she emerged to become a staple in Hollywood comedies such as 50 First Dates, her notable role in Scream, and of course, Charlie’s Angels.
Recently, she put herself in the hot seat during Showtime’s Ziwe and revealed some truths that may shock fans.
During the six-minute-plus segment, the Golden Globe winner admitted to being privileged which has given her slight embarrassment.
When Ziwe described how Barrymore’s personality can be received by others as a “relatable and grounded personality,” she then asked, “So do you think that you’re appropriating average person culture?”
“Oh, God, I would like to say that. That I am. I’m so normal, yet I’m embarrassed and aware of how privileged I am. I feel like. Josie GROSS But am I appropriating normal people? I don’t know,” the 47-year-old actress said.
“I just like my fabulous Hollywood family was dead and gone and like had sold everything off. Like, I don’t even have a family heirloom. I don’t have anything.”
Ziwe continued asking the actress what woman of color would she consider being “the girl next door” to which Barrymore responded,
“I mean. I love Tina Turner.”
Another interesting takeaway was when the Never Been Kissed alum expressed her love for Essence magazine. As a self-proclaimed “news junkie,” the actress added the publication as one of her favorites to read,
“I really like what they’re doing with Essence. They had a new editor [Caroline Wanga] come in.”
While she may enjoy reading the historical publication, Barrymore said she doesn’t see herself ever making the cover. Ziwe said she’d love to see the actress on the cover one day, but the veteran had a different stance on what that could look like,
“I would love to be on the cover of Essence. I don’t think I’m allowed on the cover of Essence, like AARP. I’m not 50 yet. They won’t let me do it. Fingers crossed. We’ll get there one day. I don’t think I’m ever going to get to Essence.”
Ziwe jokingly responded with,
“With the right bronzer. You never know.”
