The incredibly strange and unutterably offensive interview with EgyptAir's in-flight magazine went viral when it got tweeted by a passenger.
A bizarre and almost certainly fake interview with Drew Barrymore conducted airline EgyptAir has gone viral, after being spotted by an eagle-eyed journalist.
The extremely strange piece – the veracity of which has already been denied by Barrymore’s publicists – was published in EgyptAir’s on-board magazine Horus, and excerpts of it were tweeted out by travelling journalist Adam Baron.
“This interview with Drew Barrymore in the Egypt Air in-flight magazine is, umm, surreal,” Baron tweeted this week.

She's a different person now, but she still loves her old self.
It's safe to say that the Drew Barrymore of today is nothing like the one of 23 years ago. However, she still has fond memories of her youth, even that one time she lifted her shirt while doing a birthday dance for David Letterman on 'The Late Show'.

The hugely popular British series gets a US revamp and heads Stateside.
It's hard to believe, but Channel 4 series 'First Dates' has been entertaining audiences across the UK for seven seasons now since its 2013 debut, even bringing celebrities on board such as Anthea Turner and Jorgie Porter for a special batch of episodes back in 2016.

The totem pole, belonging to the Tlingit tribe native to Alaska, was taken by actor John Barrymore in 1931 and displayed in his garden.
A totem pole taken from Alaska by Drew Barrymore’s grandfather nearly a century ago has been returned to members of a tribe in its native land.
John Barrymore, an acting legend himself, is said to have spotted the spiritual artefact in an unoccupied village while yachting near the Alaskan coast back in 1931. He instructed crew members to go ashore and retrieve it, who then sawed the 40-foot pole into three pieces and stowed it away on board.

The 'Miss You Already' star also shared about her coping strategy and how she beat the depression in a cover story for People.
Drew Barrymore has revealed that she suffered from post-partum depression for a lengthy period after giving birth to her second child last year.
The actress, and recent star of the well-received Miss You Already, welcomed her second daughter, Olive, into the world 18 months ago, a younger sister for her first daughter Frankie, now 3. However, the struggles of juggling work and motherhood took their toll on Barrymore after a while, and she opened up to suffering from the condition for approximately six months.

The latter would've done anything for the role, and the former can't wait to show it to her kids.
In Catherine Hardwicke's new film Miss You Already, Toni Collette plays a lively woman who is diagnosed with breast cancer just as her lifelong best friend, played by Drew Barrymore, is starting infertility treatment. But this certainly isn't the usual chick flick, which is what drew Collette to the role.
Drew Barrymore and Toni Collette are firm friends after epic drama 'Miss You Already'
"When I read the script, it's so clever and witty that I got lost in it. It's almost like I had no choice," she says. "It just spoke to me in ways that I really couldn't understand at the time. I loved that it seamlessly moved between moments that were very poignant, moments that were very deeply moving and those that were hysterically funny and had me screaming with laughter. It represents the way we really exist in the world. And I loved that my character was kind of spiky - she deflects any kind of sympathy."

This may be a drama about breast cancer, but it's astutely written and played with a jagged sense of humour that makes it thoroughly entertaining. Anchored by energetic, emotionally resonant performances from Drew Barrymore and Toni Collette, the film is also a sharp depiction of lifelong friends who travel through some enormous events together. And by keeping everything so funny and honest, it's even more moving than expected.
Jess and Milly (Barrymore and Collette) have grown up together in London, outsiders who always had each others' backs. Their respective spouses Jago and Kit (Paddy Considine and Dominic Cooper) have become part of their extended family, as are Milly's two sparky kids (Honor Kneafsey and Ryan Lennon Baker) and Milly's diva mum (Jacqueline Bisset). Jess has never been able to get pregnant, so she and Jago are undergoing fertility treatment. And just as Jess finds out that she's pregnant, Milly is diagnosed with cancer. Both are understandably nervous about sharing their news. Then things get even more strained when Milly's relationship with Kit falters, and she starts flirting shamelessly with a local barman (Tyson Ritter).
Morwenna Banks' screenplay may have a fairly standard structure, but its details are fresh and unusually balanced, cleverly deepening the characters and never letting the movie fall into sentimental sappiness. Indeed, as the emotions get more intense, the interaction gets edgier and the jokes dirtier. Both Barrymore and Collette shine in their roles. With the showier, more wrenching character, Collette brings a raucous feistiness that's utterly infectious, even when Milly does something she knows is wrong. She is certainly not a cancer "victim"! And Barrymore digs much deeper than usual as Jess, deploying her impeccable comic timing to draw out the character's inner yearnings. Opposite them, both Considine and Cooper are excellent in roles that are more textured than the usual long-suffering husbands.
Continue reading: Miss You Already Review
Milly has rather a modest life as a community gardener, living on a boat in London with her long term boyfriend Jago with whom she is trying for a baby. And while her relationship with Jago is at its peak, Milly's real soulmate is in her best friend Jess; a rather more outspoken woman with a booming career, husband and two children, and who has been by Milly's side since they were very small children. They have always been there for each other despite how different they are, but their friendship is about to be tested for the first time when Jess is suddenly diagnosed with breast cancer. Now with mortality threatening to break the duo apart, they must find a way to keep on smiling even when things get even harder with Jess' treatment, and the stress that comes with having a potentially terminal illness.
