Drew spoke with US Weekly about her current fashion sense and how it’s changed over the years as well as some tips for everyone out there. Including stating that you can never own too many jeans because they’re universal. Below is a excerpt from the article. Head on over to the source to read the rest of the article!
“I think the scariest thing about fashion is being worried about what people are going to say because that might hinder your playfulness — not a good idea,” Barrymore, 38, explained to reporters at a Feb. 19 event showcasing Bvlgari’s collection of Elizabeth Taylor’s jewelry, adding that she isn’t afraid to take fashion risks and advises others to do the same. “Crash, burn, enjoy, live, life is short,” she says. “Have fun [with fashion].”

Drew Barrymore has closed a deal to direct The End, an end-of-the-world drama set up at Warner Bros.
The project takes a 180-degree approach to the usual apocalypse scenario and instead focuses on several people as they reconcile their fate on Earth’s last day. End is meant to be uplifting and humanistic rather than a downer, a meditation not on death but on life.
Among the storylines is a sixtysomething radio personality in London intent on broadcasting until the end, a father trying to make it through the chaos in Tokyo to reach his wife and baby and a teenage couple in the American Midwest being pulled in different directions by their families.
The script is written by Aron Eli Coleite, a writer-producer who worked on TV’s Heroes and the short-lived adventure show The River.
Jesse Ehrman is overseeing for the studio, which hopes to make it for a modest price.
Barrymore, repped by CAA, would not take a role as she did in her directorial debut, the well-regarded female-centric roller derby flick Whip It, which starred Ellen Page and Kristen Wiig, among others.
She also is attached to direct and produce the young-adult thriller Heist Society, also for Warners, and How to Be Single, set up at New Line.
Drew Barrymore is eating for two these days, and by all accounts, she’s been sticking to a healthy diet.
Still, the actress, 37, admits that she’ll allow herself to cheat on occasion when she goes out to eat.
“I’m a carb queen,” she tells Food & Wine in its September issue. “I’ll always order macaroni and cheese, but I don’t want it to be fancy. I want it to be as close to Kraft as it can possibly get!”
“I love inventive food, but I want the classic dishes to taste like how I remember them,” she adds. “I get a little bummed out when there is too much fancy stuff going on and it doesn’t resemble the original dish at all.”
When she’s at home, however, Barrymore’s diet is a whole different story. The actress tells the magazine that her refrigerator is currently housing a container of homemade curried heirloom tomato-lentil soup and that her “soulmate” is tea. But that she desperately needs help learning to cook Mexican food.
“Somebody, please teach me how to make better chilaquiles!” she says. “The dish was simultaneously dry and soggy – I somehow accomplished both textures and nothing else. I tried adding Cholula hot sauce, Topatio hot sauce, but nothing was helping that sucker!”
For someone with the last name Barrymore, there’s no better television home than Turner Classic Movies.
Legendary actors John, Lionel and Ethel often turn up on the channel in such … well, classic movies as “Dinner at Eight” and “Grand Hotel.” Their most famous descendant now has a place there, too: Drew Barrymore is TCM staple Robert Osborne’s current co-host on the weekly Saturday series “The Essentials,” commenting on the given evening’s attraction before and after the film.
The teaming of Bette Davis and Joan Crawford in the 1962 thriller “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?” is the July 28 feature. The friendly Barrymore explains watching movies “is what I like to do anyway in life, so to do it in a forum where I get to talk about films that I love — with someone I admire — on a channel that’s literally on in my house 24/7, it was just like, ‘I have to do this.’ ”
Newly married, Barrymore says TCM was a unifying force for her and then-husband-to-be Will Kopelman, both big fans of the channel. When she met Osborne at last year’s TCM Classic Film Festival, he brought up the idea of her serving as a guest programmer for one night. She countered by saying, “Well, if you ever need a new co-host for ‘The Essentials’ … .” And shortly after that, the deal was done.
“I’m an aspiring cinephile,” Barrymore notes. “There are a lot of films I love watching because of their mastery, even if they’re not things I want to watch on a Sunday
morning. I think it’s amazing when you can look at cinema in a really entertaining and light way. I love cinema education, and I spend a lot of time studying that, but sometimes you want to get into movies that are masterful and also delightful.”
With an eye toward that, Barrymore and Osborne selected this season’s “Essentials” titles from a list TCM executives provided. Other upcoming attractions include Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon and Marilyn Monroe in the iconic comedy “Some Like It Hot” (Aug. 4), an encore of Barrymore’s first stint with Osborne; Peter Sellers, James Mason and Sue Lyon in director Stanley Kubrick’s controversial “Lolita” (Aug. 11); and Fred Astaire and Cyd Charisse in the musical “The Band Wagon” (Sept. 1).
MOCA is joining forces with Smashbox Cosmetics and indie music label IAMSOUND to present three art and music crossover events, called PLAY MOCA. Kicking off the Summer, there are performances on July 27th by Salem and IO ECHO with DJ Health and featured artist Drew Barrymore, who says that she often listens to music in museums to explore how art and music intersect.
