US Elle May 2009 : Drew Barrymore by Alexei Hay




Quote:
DREW BARRYMORE
The actress gets heartbroken, gets angry, and gets a life


On her breakup from boyfriend Fabrizio Moretti: “It’s hard to be with someone for five years and say, This isn’t going to work. But it was a time in my life where I finally just said, I can’t live for anyone else anymore. I have to be on my own.”

On the Hollywood career she would like to try: “I’m in my thirties now, and I really want to try all the things that I haven’t gotten to do yet, like directing, and doing a drama. 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 wanted to get scared again.”

On preparing for the role of Grey Gardens' Little Edie: “I did what I do when I have a big challenge lying in my path. I go to school. I shut the windows, the shades come down, the phone gets turned off, I don’t go out – I study.”

On completely transforming for the role: “I knew this was not a courtesy meeting, but not far from it. I didn’t want to come in there like a hungry freak. But I also felt every second counting. So – polite conversation, then he started looking through my binder, and I saw his demeanor change, actually noticing all the hard work I had put into it. So I just put it out there. I said, ‘Look – I have all of this inside of me, and I promise you that I will change my face to be her. I will learn how to stop talking out of the side of my mouth. I will go to school to relearn body language. I will shut out the world. I will not talk to my friends. I will give up my life for this, because I don’t think you can play this character and have a social life and balance the two mentalities. I won’t act. I’ll become this person.’”

I guess Leighton Meester was shot for the June cover.
Can't ELLE see that many magazines are doing great things, and moving forward.
They seem to be stuck, stuck in a whit background and boring cover stars.
I love Drew to death, but what is her purpose other than to sell an issue?
Does anybody remember when ELLE was a fashion magazine?

Love Drew and the cover isn't completely covered with text as it usually is.

Thank you for posting Moonchild

^Agreed. I also love the text that her name is written in.
But I still don't see the purpose.
I suppose their embracing all of US Vogues favorite cover stars.
