Want to know how it’s a slow news day? When we talk about Drew Barrymore. Unless she’s getting back together with that sadsack, Justin Long. Or flashing boob on David Letterman’s show. Which, of course, hasn’t happened in eons, but hey. When you think of Drew Barrymore, what else do you think of?
What’s that? Grocery store tabloids that proclaim she’s pregnant? Yeah, me too. Lately, anyway.
Drew recently did an interview with InStyle’s UK branch, where she talked about her boyfriend-fiance person, and how happy she is. All in all, a pretty generic interview, but hey. Not every story can be a bombshell, you know.
Here’s Drew on living in today’s modern times: “I would love to slow things down a bit. We’re living in a time when we have such expectations of immediacy. Everything’s instantaneous, everything’s out there.”
And Drew on being happy: “Happiness is a choice. You have to choose it – and fight for it.”
And then Drew on the dude she’s pledged herself to marry: “He’s lovely… It’s really positive. I’m super-happy.” Referring to Will as her “boyfriend,” Drew adds, “For some reason, it’s still my favourite [word].”
So, meh? I don’t know. I suppose. I love Drew and stuff, and I’m glad she’s in a good space, but I was kind of hoping for something a little bit more than what she’s got going on these days – and all good things, of course. A quick-but-glitzy wedding, babies, and then, I don’t know, maybe some more boob-flashing on late-night television. Is that so much to ask? I really want to know.
