In Defense Of Letting Yourself Go
Huffington Post - 11 days
By Dayna Evans For someone who’s never had a baby, I know a hell of a lot about “baby weight.” After Jessica Simpson gave birth to her first child in 2012, she was criticized publicly for how much weight she’d gained during pregnancy; the news cycle speculated so obsessively over Simpson’s body and potential “bounce back” that it inspired a Jezebel story cataloging 109 of the worst headlines. “Despite battle to lose 70 pounds, Jessica Simpson binges on birthday brownies,” wrote the Examiner; “Jessica Simpson is Working Her Way Back to Her Daisy Dukes,” wrote OK! How ghastly! Ack! The lady had put on too many pounds after, lord have mercy, bringing a real human life into the world. And after she admitted that her body was “not bouncing back like a supermodel,” Simpson, then 31, worked extra hard to get herself back into fighting form. Drew Barrymore admitted to the same disgrace recently: putting on 20 pounds when she’d been going through a divorce. “I had sort of let myself go,” s ...

Drew Barrymore Shares Hilarious Story About Daughter's Meltdown At Disney World
Huffington Post - 11 days
Stars ― they’re just like us. They take their kids to Disney World. They give them cute character costumes. And they watch them have full-on meltdowns in public. Appearing on “Late Night With Seth Meyers” on Thursday, Drew Barrymore talked about a recent trip she took to Walt Disney World with her daughters, 4-year-old Olive and 2-year-old Frankie. The actress said her girls loved Disney World. “It was the best experience ever,” she said. “I just had tears of joy seeing their joy.” Still, Barrymore cautioned, family Disney trips are not always sheer bliss. “If you’ve ever taken your kids to Disneyland or Disney World, it all ends at some point in mayhem,” she told Meyers. The host proceeded to share a photo of Olive having a meltdown at the park. “In this case, she wanted to chase a duck or an egret. It was Florida, so some interesting bird ... maybe a Disney employee ― maybe not, maybe wild,” the actress recalled. “But Olive was determined to catch i ...

It can be scary dipping back into the dating pool after divorce.

He’s totally swipe-right material in her book. “Ohh, yes!” the 41-year-old star shouted. “Totally for me John Oliver would be the one. But he’s married so I’m sorry to his wife, by the way. I’m not being lascivious!”  It’s OK, Drew, who can resist a man with a British accent, political smarts and a mean tie game?  Watch the clip above for more.  type=type=RelatedArticlesblockTitle=Related Stories + articlesList=5834878ae4b09b6055ff0a8c,58064f38e4b0180 ...

Weather forecaster truly cannot contain her love for Adam Driver
Yahoo News - 24 days
It's hard to predict what will cause a bout of uncontrollable laughter. For Charlotte, North Carolina meteorologist Kaitlin Cody, the magic combination is actor Adam Driver, a Super Bowl commercial and an awkward joke live on-air. After learning that Driver is scheduled to appear in a live Super Bowl commercial this year, Cody lauded him as "one of the funniest people on Earth, although I guess you have to watch the show Girls to understand." Then, she compared him to her brother, which, understandably, we suppose, weirded out her co-anchors. Cue the cry-laughter. Let this be a lesson to them: if you want to hear a coherent weather report, do not bring up Adam Driver again. iPhone 8 concept combines camera with Apple logo Watch Drew Barrymore shatter the record for 'world's widest wig' 2017 Oscar Predictions - CineFix Roundtable Australian Open winners dance like absolute champions

  • 1989
    Age 13
    At the urging of her counselors, she was released into the custody of David Crosby (of rock group Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young fame) and his wife, Jan Dance, in October 1989, both recovered drug abusers.
    More Details Hide Details One of Barrymore's counselors, a friend of Crosby and his wife, made the arrangement with hopes that a more supportive environment would help Drew finally kick her habits. Barrymore's mother also agreed to begin therapy to address her codependency with Drew and begin to foster a more positive and structured relationship with her daughter. In her late teens, her rebelliousness played itself out on screen and in print. Barrymore forged an image as a manipulative teenage seductress, beginning with the film Poison Ivy (1992), which was a box office failure, but was popular on video and cable. That same year, at age seventeen, she posed nude for the cover of the July issue of Interview magazine with her then-fiancé, actor Jamie Walters, as well as appearing nude in pictures inside the issue.
    In June 1989 Barrymore moved into an apartment with a friend and struggled with her depression, which would trigger a suicide attempt on July 4, 1989.
    More Details Hide Details Immediately after Barrymore slashed her wrists with a butcher knife, a friend entered the apartment and rushed her to the hospital. From there, she returned to ASAP for more treatment.
    Barrymore's second stay at the clinic was no more effective than the first. In March 1989, she went out to celebrate six months of sobriety.
    More Details Hide Details The friend she was with had a small amount of marijuana and Barrymore could not resist. She began feeling guilty over the fact that her mother was unaware of her return to drugs and their relationship deteriorated.
  • 1988
    Age 12
    In June 1988 after an evening of heavy drinking, Barrymore angrily confronted her mother.
    More Details Hide Details She began breaking dishes and glasses until her mother left. Shortly thereafter, a friend of Barrymore's and the friend's mother entered the house and whisked the actress into a waiting car. They took her to ASAP, a Van Nuys rehabilitation clinic, where she would remain for 12 days. After a break to film Far From Home, Barrymore returned to Los Angeles and continued her therapy. Six days later, she boarded a plane for New York to audition for a play. Her stay in New York proved to be her downfall, as she found herself in a nightclub where cocaine was available. Barrymore wrongly believed that a small amount of cocaine would not jeopardize her steps toward recovery. One day later, she stole her mother's credit card and flew with a friend back to L.A., bought more cocaine, and went on an unauthorized shopping spree. Barrymore was quickly taken back to ASAP by private agents hired by her mother.
  • 1984
    Age 8
    She received a Golden Globe nomination as Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture in 1984 for her role in Irreconcilable Differences, in which she starred as a young girl divorcing her parents.
    More Details Hide Details In a review in the Chicago Sun-Times, Roger Ebert stated: "Barrymore is the right actress for this role precisely because she approaches it with such grave calm." In the wake of this sudden stardom, Barrymore endured a notoriously troubled childhood. She was already a regular at the notorious Studio 54 as a young girl, smoking cigarettes at the age of nine, drinking alcohol by the time she was eleven, smoking marijuana at the age of twelve and snorting cocaine at the age of thirteen. Her nightlife and constant partying became a popular subject with the media. She was in rehab at the age of fourteen, where she spent eighteen months in an institution for the mentally ill. A suicide attempt, also at age fourteen, put her back in rehab, followed by a three-month stay with singer David Crosby and his wife. The stay was precipitated, Crosby said, because she "needed to be around some people that were committed to sobriety." Barrymore later described this period of her life in her autobiography, Little Girl Lost. The following year, when she was 15, following a successful juvenile court petition for emancipation, she moved into her own apartment.
    Her parents divorced in 1984, when she was nine years old.
    More Details Hide Details She is one of four children with a half-brother, John, who is also an actor. Barrymore was born into acting: all of her paternal great-grandparents – Maurice Barrymore and Georgie Drew Barrymore, and Maurice Costello and Mae Costello (Altschuk) – as well as her paternal grandparents, John Barrymore and Dolores Costello, were actors; John Barrymore was arguably the most acclaimed actor of his generation. She is the niece of Diana Barrymore and the grandniece of Lionel Barrymore, Ethel Barrymore and Helene Costello, the great-great-granddaughter of Irish-born John Drew and English-born Louisa Lane Drew, all of whom were actors, and the great-grandniece of Broadway idol John Drew, Jr. and silent film actor, writer and director Sidney Drew. Her godfather is Steven Spielberg while her godmother is Anna Strasberg, Lee Strasberg's widow. Meanwhile, Barrymore is the god-daughter of director Steven Spielberg, and actress Sophia Loren.
  • 1982
    Age 6
    A year later, she played Gertie, the younger sister of Elliott, in E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, which made her one of the most famous child stars of the time and earned her the Young Artist Award as Best Young Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture in 1982.
    More Details Hide Details
    In 1982, she starred in her breakout role as Gertie in Steven Spielberg's E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and quickly became one of Hollywood's most recognized child actresses, going on to establish herself in mainly comic roles.
    More Details Hide Details Following a turbulent childhood that was marked by recurring drug and alcohol abuse, and two stints in rehab, Barrymore wrote the 1990 autobiography, Little Girl Lost. She successfully made the transition from child star to adult actress with a number of films including Poison Ivy, Bad Girls, Boys on the Side, Scream and Everyone Says I Love You. Subsequently, she also starred in romantic comedies, such as The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates. In 1997, she and her business partner Nancy Juvonen formed the production company Flower Films, with its first production the 1999 Barrymore film Never Been Kissed. Flower Films went on to produce the Barrymore vehicle films Charlie's Angels, 50 First Dates and Music and Lyrics, as well as the cult film Donnie Darko. Her more recent projects include He's Just Not That Into You, Beverly Hills Chihuahua, Everybody's Fine and Going the Distance.
