Toni Collette & Drew Barrymore Will Make You Weep (& Giggle)

Refinery 29 did this great article talking about Drew’s new film Miss You Already!

Toni Collette really wanted Drew Barrymore to be her best friend — in a movie, that is. And she got her wish: In Miss You Already, out November 6, the two play longtime pals. Milly (Collette) is undergoing cancer treatment when Jess (Barrymore) learns she is pregnant.

Collette wrote to Barrymore “begging” her to be in the film. Why Barrymore? “She’s the ultimate girls’ girl,” Collette explains during a recent interview in New York, as her co-star sits beside her. “She’s so vocal about all things female. She’s strong and grounded and emanates an amazing warmth. And if you’re thinking about, oh, who would I like to play my best friend? It’s kind of a no-brainer.”

Collette’s powers of persuasion worked. “I picked up the family and moved over to London and I showed up and just said, ‘I am here. I want to be with you, I want to support you, I want to be your backbone, I want to challenge you, push you when you need it,'” says Barrymore, who is an editor-at-large for Refinery29. “I think we showed up with a lot of conviction to really have each others’ backs. We just started laughing and had a blast from there on out.”

Despite the trauma inherent in the film’s premise, Milly and Jess’ relationship is defined by the fun they have had together over the years. In one climatic moment, they flee an uncomfortable party in a taxi cab and head for the moors made famous by Wuthering Heights, a book they’ve adored since childhood. Barrymore and Collette just did a lot of “eating and drinking” for off-set bonding. “Which in itself can be wild,” Collette adds.

But wait, you’re thinking, won’t this movie about cancer and female friendship make me weep uncontrollably? Chances are it probably will. New York magazine declared that the movie was “built to make women cry,” comparing it to Beaches and Steel Magnolias.

When we mention the likelihood of sobbing, Collette asks, “But didn’t this movie make you laugh as well? People are forgetting to mention that. It makes you feel many things. It’s not just sadness. It’s ultimately very uplifting and such a celebration of life, and the strength of the love that these two women have for each other is such a positive thing. So I’d hate for the film to just be known as a weepy chick flick because it’s so much more than that.”

Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore quiz each other

As all know Drew & Adam are good friends! So USA Today had the two friends quiz each other!

NEW YORK – Put two famous people in a very small, somewhat claustrophobic room together after giving them a lengthy homework assignment, and something strangely magical happens.

You learn that Drew Barrymore would love to remake Five Easy Pieces, and play the Jack Nicholson part – although she’d never actually do it because really, why mess with perfection? And that Adam Sandler knew he’d nailed a joke as a kid when he’d see his dad’s belly rolling with laughter.

While in the throes of promoting Blended, their third film together, Sandler and Barrymore sat down for a midday chat. Their film brings them together on screen, as two single parents who somehow find one another, as parents in romantic capers tend to do. And each brought questions to ask the other.

“I have questions for you, Drew. You better get them right,” announces the ordinarily press-shy Sandler.

“It’s called preparation,” he says.

Their new project is a reflection of where both actors are in real life; both are married with young daughters. “I feel capable and happy and strong. What really plays the biggest part in this is one, I’m with a really safe group of people. So that’s everything. I feel supported. Everyone is happy and good to each other. This is family. And also, my kids are healthy. That’s most important,” says Barrymore, whose daughter Olive is almost 2 and Frankie arrived on April 22.

Their careers have gone in different directions. Sandler became his own industry, releasing comedies that generate dollars, if not critical accolades. Even sitting down for this interview is a stretch for Sandler, who hasn’t done print in roughly two decades. Why? He doesn’t need to glad-hand the media, because his films make bank on their own. Case in point: 2013’s Grown Ups 2, not exactly on anyone’s top ten list, grossed $133.7 million domestically. And Sandler’s estimated lifetime box office gross according to BoxofficeMojo.com: $2.3 billion.

And Barrymore has veered away from moviemaking largely in favor of running her makeup company, Flower, and starting a family with her third husband, art consultant Will Kopelman. But here they are, Sandler on his Apple laptop, Barrymore holding an old-school list of questions on paper. So, go.

On comedy:

Barrymore: “When did you first make someone laugh as a kid? Who was it and when was it?”

Sandler: “Let’s see. I don’t remember the first one. I believe I was always trying to make my father laugh. It was the most important thing in my life as a child, making sure pops was happy. If Stan liked it, the whole house was happy. When my father laughed, he had a big hearty laugh, and it was just – it felt good, felt good. That was the man I wanted to see smile the most.”

Barrymore: “Do you have a particular memory, being in your pajamas, doing a bit for him?”

Sandler: “I know that we had a bunch of different hats in the house. I would run down the hallway and throw on a different hat and try and do an impression of somebody, or an accent, anything to make the man happy. My father was usually laying in his bed in his underwear. If he was laughing, I’d see his belly shaking.”

Barrymore: “The belly meter.”

Sandler: “The belly meter, exactly. If it was shaking for more than 20 seconds, we knew we had a good bit going.”

Drew & Adam on The Ellen DeGeneres Show

I love Ellen’s show but how cute to have both Adam & Drew talking about their daughters with Ellen. Plus it is cute to watch them reminiscence about filming The Wedding Singer … anyway you need to watch this adorable clip.

Drew Barrymore isn’t pregnant anymore, but she’s still got a glow.

The actress gave birth to her second daughter, Frankie, just three weeks ago, yet she still managed to step out and appear on The Ellen DeGeneres Show (airing May 19) alongside her pal Adam Sandler to promote their upcoming film Blended—and she looked absolutely amazing!

“It feels like a miracle and it’s also so awesome I have to say,” she added about stepping out so soon after giving birth. “I feel like I actually have, first of all, I love this movie and I would never not like show up for it and I feel so good and happy. My kid is healthy. I have nothing to complain about. Like, I’m so blessed.”

She also explained how she and hubby Will Kopelman came to decide on their baby girl’s name, noting that almost everything they liked sounded like food or colors when paired with her big sis Olive.

“We, um, it was just a name that like came to my husband and I about a few months before she was born and it was just sort of like I think this is it and then we just gave ourselves the room to change our mind but we never did. Not the most interesting story,” Barrymore said.

The couple welcomed their second child together on April 22, and while she quickly got back to work, she couldn’t help but gush about motherhood when talking to E! News at the film’s junket.

“You know what’s going on more, so you’re a lot less worried and stressed,” Barrymore said. “It’s so much more work, but it is so much more calming in a way. It’s just grounding.”

Adam Sandler And Drew Barrymore Give Best Kiss Advice

This weekend is the MTV Movie awards and MTV talked with Adam & Drew about their Best Kiss Advice.

Perhaps she doesn’t know it, but Bella Thorne just worked in the company of MTV Movie Awards royalty.

Thorne, best known for playing CeCe Jones on Disney Channel’s “Shake It Up,” will soon be seen on the big-screen in “Blended,” the upcoming comedy about a bad blind date that blossoms into true romance. “Blended” stars Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, the winners of a combined total of eight Movie Awards statuettes, for their work in “The Wedding Singer” and “50 First Dates.”

It’s early days yet, but maybe — just maybe — some of that Movie Awards magic rubbed off on Thorne. If nothing else, the young actress has her sights set on a Movie Awards category she hopes to one day dominate.

“The Best Kiss award,” she told MTV’s Josh Horowitz with a big grin. “I love that one. It’s my favorite!”

Thorne even has her eye on one of this year’s Best Shirtless Performance nominees as her future kissing partner: “The Wolf of Wall Street” actor Leonardo DiCaprio.

“I love Leonardo DiCaprio,” she said. “When I meet him for the first time, I’m going to be like, ‘Oh, thank goodness we’ve finally met, because now I don’t have to plan the wedding alone!'”

That forward declaration aside, Thorne ought to start planning how to win the Best Kiss award now — and she doesn’t need to look any further for advice than Sandler and Barrymore, who previously scored a Best Kiss award of their own for their rain-soaked “50 First Dates” make-out moment.

“It does so much for the kiss,” Sandler said of how rainstorms affect smooch scenes. “It tightens up the body. You feel chilly. You’re cold. You’re tight. Your nipples are way out there.”

“Yeah,” Barrymore added, “mine too!”

Okay, that last part is a little, ah, out there. Otherwise, there you have it, Thorne: Leonardo DiCaprio, in the rain — a few years from now and that Golden Popcorn could be yours!
