Eh, how many people walk around looked delighted with life?
She looks tired. She's not old, but she's not a young mother either. It's probably exhausting looking after the little parasite.
I don't understand why she almost always dresses like a slob.
Wearing the crummiest of clothing.
R1, lots of people walk around looking delighted with life.
Where do you live? - a coal mining town in the Appalachian mountains of West Virginia?
Maybe she's going for comfort? Why the hell does anyone care what she wears walking down the street? If she was at a premiere, then we could rip her to shreds. But not walking down the street.
She wears old crummy rags in her personal life.
Weird. Maybe she has post-partum depression or post-marriage depression.
She seems to be gaining more and more weight rather than losing some after the baby birth.
That's depressing right there.
She just released her own line of cosmetics through Walmart. She's a businesswoman and mother, not a starlet.
Perhaps she's going for Irish twins.
She just had a baby.
Oh no!! She went from a size 6 to a size 8!!!
You all are morons.
r9 - Hey genius, all the critical posts, including the OP, are from the same poster. The rest are not critical.
There was a recent BI about an A-list movie star who just had a baby and was shocked that the baby wouldn't react to her wonderfully and all times and has been handing her off to nannies nonstop except for photo ops.
The main guess was Drew.
I wonder if she'll allow Olive to follow in her child-star footprints?
I was just reading her wikipedia page and she's openly bi, that's not just a rumor, she admitted it 10 yrs ago. Although she seems to imply that her affairs with women were all when she was young.
She's probably suffering from post-partum depression.
I like Drew ( wish she dated women more!) but she does look like shit here.
OP is the "Always Look Happy!" hall monitor. She also organizes the monthly pot luck, ruling with an iron fist.
She dresses like that all the time. She looks homeless. And she's something north of a size 8. Her weight yoyos.
Well, I guess we are moving on from Jessica Simpson. Jennifer Garner took a while to lose her baby weight. Some women would rather focus on being happy and being with their babies instead of starving themselves and spending all their time in a gym. I think Kate Hudson also stayed heavy for a while and look at her now. I think the OP is being hypercritical. Drew does not deserve our wrath. She's a survivor and she does look like she enjoys life. I guess being a new Mother makes one obsess on everything that can go wrong and all the dangers that are lurking around the corner. It's understandable.
You guys have no idea how small she actually is. She's seriously got to be the least photogenic person on the planet. I haven't seen her since she gave birth, but find it unlikely that she's bigger than a 4.
Cut her a break. Babies can be exhausting and she may have ppd.
I wouldn't have recognized her from that pic. Maybe that's what she is going for.
Her weight does go up and down. She isn't naturally slight, and it probably takes a lot of misery for her to get down to a camera-friendly size zero.
If she's taking some private time after having the baby, she's gonna eat.
That's not drew barrymore, that's mama case.
This is what you have to worry about OP? No wonder you walk around with a dumb smile on your face.
OP, come away from the computer once in a while. Drew Barrymore just left the NY City Ballet during the 2nd intermission. She looked STUNNING in a yellow dress with a puffy skirt.
She was with Cameron Diaz, by the way, and a good-looking man in a suit, perhaps her husband(?)
By the way, also here, (as usual), is another DL thread headliner, that Nev Schulman guy from Catfish.
My mom was at the birth. She says Drew's snizz is disfigured, and kind of looks like E.T. when the light hits it right.
I think the way she dresses in very crummy rag-like clothing every day is more the issue than her weight. I don't care about her weight.
Radaronline.com and justjared.com have frequent photos of her wearing rags - constantly an old ugly army green military jacket, a raggedy used old tee shirt, raggedy sweats - or enormous muu muu's that are unbelievable
She seems to shop at thrift shops and Good Will.
She also seems to want to dress almost every day as a 1967 or 1970 hippie in ugly raggedy clothing.
I think she is probably depressed. Maybe she married the wrong man again or found out he married her for her money.
r27 has to be the OP again. The "crummy" gives it away. (Psst, OP - you're not Holden Caulfield.)
I don't even think her clothes are bad. In fact, she looks exactly like most people walking down the street not trying to impress anyone (except her clothes are probably quite expensive).
I've never seen her appeal.
I'm not talking about the clothes in the photo posted at the OP. The OP photo clothes are fine.
I'm talking about the sloppy, slobby, ugly clothes she wears most every day in photos at radaronline.com and justjared.com, including an ugly olive green military fatique jacket from Salvation Army.
She obviously dresses for herself and not for OP. How dare she!
Christ, you're tiresome, r30.
I saw her on a day time tv show introducing her own brand of wine. Isn't she an alcoholic?
She wants more kids:
"On growing her family: “I was an only child, and it was lonely. Some people love it and thrive on the independence, but I want my kids to have other kids around. Maybe two kids so they can run around life together, roll their eyes at their parents together like Rusty and Audrey Griswold from [National Lampoon’s] Vacation. So however that’s going to come about, it’s gonna happen!”"
I see that the thigh-frightened are out in force again.
As long as she's not pulling her pants down on stage ala Madonna and she's not forcing you to watch her pee she has every right to dress and look as she chooses.
And she still looks good!
That can't be a recent picture, R43. It's not that cold yet.
r43 that pic is from January 2013. Pics from YESTERDAY are at r37.
And she's been looking pretty good co-hosting The Essentials on TCM.
Maybe she dresses like that to blend into the crowd.
With no makeup, she and Katy Perry could be sisters...very plain, kind of somber/turn of the 19th century 'we're starving in post-colonial America' perma-expressions.
They both know how to choose hair/wig, clothes, and makeup people.
I would never guess that was Drew Barrymore from the photos. She looks like the kind of girl who hooks up with black guys.
If you must be "cutting edge," R48, at least try to be witty.
I was just making an observation r49, not trying for anything edgy or witty. She totally looks like a chick who fucks black guys. The kind I see at the bus stop on my way home from work. Three kids, three different fathers nowhere to be seen. Our tax dollars at work.
The recent pic at r37 doesn't make her look better either, even with the weight gone. Her looks are kaput.
She's aged fairly quickly.
She looks like most moms her age. Drew is not a spring chicken anymore folks.
God you people are harsh. She looks beautiful. She's been through hell and back, you know. Not a completely charmed life.
She'll win an Oscar portraying Adele in "The Singing Chavette!"
R53 - She isn't ready for social security either. She isn't even 40.
I think she looks better blonde, and of course makeup looks everyone look brighter
I would be willing to bet my life that she is far better looking than you, R51. And she undoubtedly weighs about 75 pounds less than you, too.
Why is it always the ugly ones who make these sorts of nasty comments? Does it give you comfort?
She is married to the son of a Chanel big wig, and is Lionel, Ethel, and Jade's sprog; I expect waaaay more!
[quote]Why is it always the ugly ones who make these sorts of nasty comments? Does it give you comfort?
I was thinking the same thing, don't get the nasty comments against Drew.
Perhaps she is suffering from cheesecake syndrome?
The ONLY reasons she's walking free is because she's white.
[quote]Oh no!! She went from a size 6 to a size 8!!!
More like size 18.
I don't think she looks depressed, she's never had much interest in clothes. What's wrong with being a rich slacker?
I'd buy that r19. Petite women usually photograph terribly (unless posed) above a size 4. The double chin moonface effect in photos is behind many bad plastic surgery decisions.
The blonde hair looks terrible on her. She needs to go back to the red brown color that is her natural color.
The fashion pussies have arrived.
The picture is almost a YEAR OLD.
When one of the guys on here have a baby naturally by themselves.....then you can have something to say about Drew
Your gaydar is way off r41. Jimmy Fallon has been screwing around with young women all over town. Not gay, but not the family man that he claims to be either. Apparently, he isn't even trying to be discrete anymore, which does make me wonder about his wife's sexuality. Why would she put up with it? She has her own money and career.
R65, the cop is black
I have to put TCM on mute when she is talking. She gushes too much and the lisp seems to be getting worse.
I think she's cute. Always seemed likable.
Nancy Fallon is probably keeping busy with decorating and or otherwise managing her husband's mini real estate empire. Jimmy Fallon is buying up units at 34 Gramercy Park East at a good clip.
Drew would have a double chin unless she was very thin.
She's clearly much bigger than her Charlie's Angels days in the photos but so what, that is what childbirth does to most women. It's only the freaks like Kate Middleton and Victoria Beckham who hand the kid to a nanny and get on a treadmill as soon as the stitches are out, exist on a grape and a nut per day and are more interested in tanning than breast feeding.
She was on Fallon a couple of weeks ago and talked about her weight. She said she can't seem to shake the final 20 lbs of her baby weight, in part because her husband is such a foodie and is always getting her to partake.
I thought she utterly charming regarding the issue.
Maybe her hubby likes her chubby.
She's rather short, so any extra weight would look exaggerated on her.
She seems happy, though.
Only ever marginally talented, pretty & appealing.
She should thank God she's has this long of a career.
Without the Barrymore name, she'd have been in ET & that would have been the end of her.
For many women famous or not remaining thin when not genetically programmed to do so comes only from careful dieting and heavy exercise. That and of course being young.
Having a baby causes most women to put on weight and getting their figure back can be an ordeal if it happens at all. Not everyone has full time nurses or nannies to watch the children while they spend endless hours at the gym. If they are breastfeeding dieting isn't going to be easy either.
Tyra Banks, Kirstie Alley, Valerie Bertinelli along with others have struggled with weight problems.
And Drew's weight yo-yoed before she was pregnant.
So when was she "cured" of her alcoholism?
She supposedly drinks in moderation.
Is she a pig? She sure eats like one!
She's married to her rich Jewish Chanel scion and she's probably mostly content these days being a mom, businesswoman, and a socialite/philanthropist in training.
In fact, considering the way she was brought up, I would bet that she has been actively seeking to retire to this kind of lifestyle for many years, now.
R86 yeah the fact that she not only doesn't have to put on a public pretense of 12 step nonsense, to say nothing of starting a wine company, emblazoned with a name that is practically the dictionary definition of alcholism, is kind of a PR feat of epic proportions.
And it's just that, r90, a feat, a sham. I wish her well, but it's probably going to all end in tears and booze.
Isn't there a thread on this site about that type of jacket she's wearing?
A quick look at various images pulled up via Google tells the tale. DB aside from a few years when she was able to really slim down has always been, well shall we say full figured. Not fat as in obese but simply a girl and then woman that is what she is.
Looking at her face especially you can see even as a child DB was, well chubby, but not in a bad way. She also smoked ciggys which probably helped keep her weight down, also have been known to cause it to pack it on when persons stop and find themselves reaching for food instead.
R93 she started growing boobies when she was about 8 or 9. She had a reduction in her teens.
I also think she was 9 when she got her period. Gross.
She may even have had two reductions. And yeah, she was chubby during Never Been Kissed, though in a cute way.
I wonder about the former alcoholism, too. Does she ever explain how she went from publicly declaring herself to be an alcoholic (and getting a lot of attention and PR) to now laughing away as she discusses her LOVE of wine?
R97, I actually met her at a dive bar years ago. It was the afternoon and I used to love to practice pool and, during that time of day, the tables were empty. She was there with a large hat on, sunglasses, the whole schtick.
I guess once or twice a month she'd come down to this gay dive and drink the afternoon away. She was lovely. When she left, I asked the bartender, "I thought she was sober?". He said that she once told him she was just a kid when she thought she was an alkie and now, as an adult, realized she wasn't.
I don't know? I guess that makes sense, but I don't enough about that world to know. Or care.
I still think her real romantic relationship is with Nancy, Jimmy Fallon's wife.
Barrymore -- whose girlfriends include Cameron Diaz and Reese Witherspoon, FYI -- doesn't just like wine, of course. She's also a big sake fan: "I usually am the one with the chopsticks, like, sake bombing."
I don't think she looks bad but she doesn't know how to dress, she never did.
Maybe Drew is trekking on the Shelley Winter path. She is an excellent actress and could get a ton of work in character roles.
She is not likely to go the Shelley route, but I think she will go for more character roles.
I don't think Drew has ANY range whatsoever as an actress. She should continue her pursuits behind the camera, IMO.
R105 - She's got a pretty good range.
She's actually an awful actress. Her mother basically fucked a homeless/crazy guy she found out had the last name of Barrymore and that's how she was conceived. Her mother then was able to get her cast in movies by Spielberg, etc based on her name alone. Stage mother with grand delusions, like Britney Spears mother, Katherine Heigl's mother, Kartrashians' mother, Christian Slater's mother, the Q girl with the unpronouncable name's mother, etc.
'I'm so excited!' Drew Barrymore reveals her anticipation at turning 40 and gushes about her domesticated life as a wife and mother
She's a former Hollywood wild child who has happily settled into a more domesticated life as a wife and mother.
And unlike many actors in the business, Drew Barrymore couldn't be more thrilled about the prospect of turning 40 in two months.
In an interview with E!Online, the ever-youthful star couldn't hide her excitement regarding the upcoming milestone birthday and beamed as she revealed,'marriage is great and the kids are the best.'
R108 does she think that if she keeps talking likes lispy Valley Girl she an stay 23 forever?
Big boozehound and pothead. So much for all her past claims of cleaning up her act.
Is she still doing pot?
She a mouth-breather.
See this is what I find annoying/hypocritical about the whole celebrity way they have to handle pr when they have been publicly outed as having a drug problem, going to rehab, etc. the way the celebrity PR machine works is that, once you have gone to rehab, you have to declare yourself "clean and sober", or people will assume you're totally off the wagon and headed for another rehab stint (or the morgue). But the fact is, most people can modify their behavior. Let's think of how many 70s/80s celebs used a lot of drugs (but aren't "known" for that, and, as they got older, just started...using less. Drinking and getting drunk even in occasion, pot smoking every now and then, the occasional line here and there - it's just called growing up, and no doubt it applies to probably a good 3/4 of celebrities.
But of course you can't say that in an interview, especially if your heavy drug use has been made public. This has been true since the late 80s era of the People confessional, for which Drew is ironically the poster child. And for a couple of years, when she was trying to get her career back on track, she very much followed all the rules of playing the "I'm clean and sober" girl.
But then at some point she started admitting to thinks like puking from drinking (that's how she met the guy from Hole - she was pucking outside his concert), and liking her wine , and - has she admitted to pot, I don't know? These are are "normal" things not to be worried about, but in the Hollywood narrative, when you're branded an "addict," you're not allowed to admit to doing any of that.
So it's kind of a mini pr miracle, especially with that last name, that she has managed to somehow been able to "get away" with admitting to not being sober. With her own wine label yet. And the press has never picked up or seized on it in anyway.
Any idea why?
Drew seems to be doing well with drinking in moderation.
"Drew Barrymore gave birth to her second daughter Frankie eight months go, but is no hurry to shed the post-pregnancy weight.
The 39-year-old star has taken a more forgiving approach to herself when it comes to losing those excess pounds.
'It took nine months to (put on), so it should take nine months to get off,' Drew told the latest issue of People magazine."
'I wanted fettuccine Alfredo, I didn't want a barbell. I didn't even want to think about (weight loss) until I immersed myself in babyhood.'
She added: 'I wouldn't look at my kids and be like, "I have a free hour, I'm going to work out!"'
In fact, Drew has just started to work out again with celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson.
Fettuccine Alfredo has always been too much, even for someone like me whose diet is probably 60 percent saturated fat. But I could always go for spaghetti carbonara. Or really good fried chicken. Or bernaise sauce....ok maybe I need to go eat something.
Fettuccine Alfredo is delicious, but it is really fattening.
