Drew Barrymore Does ‘Elle’ Magazine

“I don’t want to be vain or fearful ... But if I want to do something, I will."

Drew Barrymore, who was rumored to be engaged to off-again on-again beau Justin Long but has since broken up with, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Elle magazine. In her coverstory interview, Drew reveals that altho she has yet found the need to go under the knife, she is not opposed to the idea of plastic surgery. Here is our first look at Drew’s new Elle cover and some excerpts from her coverstory interview:

On taking stock of where she is now: “For three years straight, I’ve been burning the candle at both ends, and as of last December, I just didn’t have anything left. I’ve been so aggressive about living life to the fullest and being plugged into everything, but now I’ve ripped the plug out of the wall and put it on the floor for a while. I’m thinking about the same things as when I was 15, about spirituality and who I am, who I want to be. It’s cocoon, pupa, larva, and fuck, I’m reborn!”

On the media’s misconceptions of her: “I make movies. I have a passion. Puppies and daisies don’t accomplish anything. That’s not me at all.”

On being single: “If you’re 35 and single and it’s a choice, it feels fine. So I didn’t settle with the wrong person yet. Big deal!”

On her upcoming role in Going the Distance: “I like that it’s not a traditional romantic comedy, with the story line of, ‘Oh, I slept with this guy, but when I woke up, I found out he’s the CEO of my company, and we’re going to live happily ever after once we go through all these crazy perils. I talk shit with my girlfriends. And it can get dirty.”

On why she’s not afraid to get older: “I don’t want to be vain or fearful, and I don’t think I’ll do anything [in terms of plastic surgery], but if I want to do something, I will. From my perspective, there’s no reason to be afraid of aging, because if you age, you’re lucky! The alternative is death.”

On child stardom: “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.”

I love that Drew keeps it real. While I am bummed that she and Justin are off-again, there’s always the chance for them to get back together. And she is right, being 35 and single is completely normal. I have every confidence that she will find the right guy … when the right guy comes along. After the jump, check out a photo from Drew‘s Elle photospread …


Drew Barrymore has been in show business longer than some celebs have been alive … and she’s only 35! She has endured her fair share of troubles but managed to turn her life around and start making the right decisions. I’m a big fan of hers … I wish nothing but continued success for her.

    I was actually pleasantly surprised with “Whip It!” because I thought it was going to be bad, but it was actually quite brilliant and EXTREMELY underrated as well. She’s definitely interesting, I will give her that. Also, the new movie with Justin Long looks hilarious! I want to see it. ; )

    I love the comment she made about againg and that the alternative is death. I never really looked at it that way, 22 doesn’t seem that bad now :D

    I loooove Drew! I can always identify with her when I read her interviews, and I can definitely relate to her comment about being happily single at 35. :)

    I had no idea her and Justin broke up, that’s too bad. I thought they were so cute together and seemed to be so in love.

    We got to see her in person twice last year – once at the skating rink where they filmed “Whip It’ and also at the Toronto Film Festival. At the Whip It premiere in Toronto she – without notes without prompting – was able to speak spontaneously, intelligently and was able to carry the load of all the promotion for this film – The girl is real, through and through.

    I wish Drew would give Lindsey a call and give her the low down on how to successfully come out of being a child star/addict.

  14. Tracy

    Drew is drop dead gorgeous and such a great person. I love that she took control of her life and got clean at such a young age. She is truly an inspiration and I adore her.
