Drew Barrymore is the covergirl for the May issue of ELLE magazine.
In an interesting twist, the entire photoshoot was done underwater!!!!
And she actually looks good doing it!
Maybe she should always pose underwater???
We're especially loving the shot of her dressed in red. HOT!
So, what's Miz Barrymore got to say to Elle?
Here are the HIGHlights:
Her feelings on turning 34:
“I’m freaked out about how fast time is going. Now I get why adults are always so encouraging to young people—like Enjoy it! It’s magic! I would say that when Fabi and I broke up, and I got Grey Gardens, and I finally got the green light for the movie I directed, I was like, The magic is gone, the magic potion has dissipated, and this is your life—how do you want to live it?”
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 the initial bad news from her agents about the [upcoming] Grey Gardens role:
“They said, ‘Well, here’s the truth. There’s a lot of actresses that, frankly, the director would rather do this.’ So I was just like, ‘Okay, I wanted a challenge!’”
On completely transforming for the role of Little Edie:
“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.’”
