She made her breakthrough as a seven-year-old in a Spielberg classic, spent her teenage years establishing a shaky relationship with fame which ended in several stints in rehab, and now Hollywood star Drew Barrymore is coming to Marie Claire to discuss her newest incarnation as a responsible adult and business entrepreneur.
As well as having a rich heritage of films – including E.T, Donnie Darko and Blended – to her name, Drew is now focussing on her commercial projects: her Flower cosmetic range and Barrymore wines.
“Time have shifted to a really empowering platform of: ‘I can do things that I’m very much interested in, for myself, for other people, in the way I want to do it’,” the 41-year-old tells Marie Claire.
What makes Drew’s projects stand out from the crowd of celebrities and their commercial creations?
“There’s a very real difference between name-slapping and people saying, ‘I have an opportunity because of my job, I’m going to run with it – and by running with it I’m going to give an infinite per cent of myself to it.”
Barrymore - who recently announced her divorce from husband of four years Will Kopelman - will also be discussing fame and fortune, friends, making an effort and her perfect twenty-four hours in the interview, which is on sale now.
