Haven’t said that much about how cool Drew Barrymore is, but she’s working currently on a talk show, The Drew Barrymore Show, which could be a counter to Ellen and put her a bit in the Howard Stern realm for shock value. The show starts airing September 14, 2020.
In a recent interview on a YouTube show called Hot Ones (part of the First We Feast channel with 9.2+ million subscribers) where she eats increasingly spicier hot wings and takes tougher questions, she confirms a rumor that her grandfather’s body was stolen from the morgue.
She admitted that John’s three friends — Errol Flynn, W.C. Fields, and Sadakichi Hartmann — took his body and actually propped it up at a poker table.Drew Barrymore confirms rumor that her grandfather’s corpse was ‘stolen’ | Fox News
What’s awesome about Drew’s response, which you can watch below at the 289 second mark, is how she embraces the idea of celebrating death rather than being sad for it.
Drew has been in some good, bad and ugly films, but she’s one of the very small few actors that successfully transitioned from child actor to adult without a career that spiraled into the dirt. I don’t know if this is because she wisely chose better roles, but Drew has been in everything from E.T sci-fi family alien film to The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates romcom opposite Adam Sandler and a bunch of movies in different genres.
My most recent watch of Drew’s talent came with Santa Clarita Diet, see pictured atop, and if you have Netflix — sure you do! — then watching the first few episodes of that crazy show is entertaining. I got a little bored with it after that, but it puts a humorous spin on zombies and showcases Drew’s often eclectic and bizarre sense of humor.
What’s your favorite Drew Barrymore film?
Barrymore is on my shortlist of actresses that I look forward to seeing in movies, whatever she’s doing. Do you also dig Drew? What’s your favorite film of hers? You can look over Drew’s filmography on Wikipedia. Seems hard to believe she’s been starring in films for 40 years?!?! That’s what starting out young in the business will do…
