Drew Barrymore Calls Bad Girls the One Film She Made That She’s “Just Not That Into”

Even an accomplished actress like Drew Barrymore has some box office blunders she’d rather forget.

During Monday night’s round of “Plead the Fifth” on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live, the Golden Globe winner told the late-night show host which movie in her filmography she wasn’t too keen about.

“Tell me one film you’ve done that you can now say at this late date that you were just not that into,” Cohen asked while giving a subtle nod to the 40-year-old mother’s 2009 film.
With slight hesitation, Barrymore offered a diplomatic answer. “Well, I wish that film Bad Girls was more bad. I was like, ‘Lets be like dudes, but like women, but like dudes,” she said of the poorly-received 1994 film she starred in with Andie MacDowell and Dermot Mulroney.

A good sport, Barrymore continued to answer Cohen’s juicy questions without objection.

“Christian Bale said in an interview that the two of you went on a date as teens and you never called him back. He never heard from you again,” Cohen posed to Barrymore. “Why did you never call him back?”

“I don’t know! He was so nice,” she replied. “I wasn’t like super boy crazy. I had a lot of fish to fry, like I had big problems in my like world for many years like in good ways—things you gotta overcome…boys is like very secondary.”

As for another Hollywood star that became her right-hand man for just one year of her life, her ex-husband Tom Green, she explained to Cohen her outlook on their short-lived relationship from 2001.

“Tom Green I think is a very unique human being we all know that as he dangles mice in his mouth,” she said of the eccentric comedian who hosted several late-night talk shows on MTV in the early 2000s.

“I think that he did something before anyone else did. I think that he was a real pioneer. There was no social media. There was no reality TV and I have to say I gave him a loit of credit as a creative person onlooking that he was a first and I do appreciate that about him,” she said.

A round of applause to the makeup mogul for making it through the entire round without ever pleading the fifth. We appreciate your honesty, Drew.

“I Feel Like I Was Born the Day My Kids Were”

Drew Barrymore’s wild child days are long gone, but being a mom is way more fun anyway!

“I just love having a family,” the 40-year-old mother of two told E! News exclusively at the launch of her curated holiday collection for Shutterfly. “I love my kids—I feel so blessed. I feel like I’ve never been better as a person [than I am] through my family.”

Drew and husband Will Kopelman are the proud parents of two little girls: Olive, 3, and Frankie, 19 months. The actress, entrepreneur and DIY mama realizes she’s lucky to have a fantastic extended family, too, telling E! News, “I love my in-laws. It’s like I’m defying the clichés because we’re all so close.”

That’s not to say, though, that life is always picture-perfect for this settled-down gal. Drew recently opened up about her struggle with postpartum depression. “I wasn’t really trying to sort of over-open myself up to anything, but I was just being honest about what my own little journey was,” she told E! News exclusively. “The outpour[ing] of women coming up to me and relating was really extraordinary.”

Motherhood “is en emotional roller coaster,” Drew explained. “You just care so much about how to be the best mom, the perfect mom—even though there’s no such thing as perfection, you expect that of yourself.”

Of course, any hardships that come with being a parent are well worth it for Drew. “Being a mom is everything in the world,” she said. “I feel like I was born the day my kids were, and everything in life was like an experiment to learn to apply to them.”

Drew opens up a lot more about the highs and lows of motherhood, marriage and what she’s getting Olive and Frankie for the holidays in the video above.

This Morning Interview

The Daily Mail gives us a clip of Drew’s appearance on This Morning from Monday!

Drew Barrymore talked about her troublesome childhood in an interview with This Morning on Monday.
The 40-year-old was on the show to promote her memoirs, Wildflower, and told hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby that she burned out at a young age.
She said: ‘I had a mid-life crisis at 25. I write about it in a chapter, called Outward Bound, which was fitting when you start work at 11 months old.

‘At 14, I got emancipated. I walked out of the courts an adult.

‘I had to go and find my first apartment and that chapter was so fun for me to write because I didn’t know you had to throw take-out cartons in the trash.’
She added: ‘Laundry saved my life. I didn’t understand it. I poured the bleach directly on the jeans and they looked like disintegrated dalmatians.

‘I was like, am I going to crumble and wear disintegrated jeans or figure this out. I’m a master of laundry.’

Drew had a troubled past and famously had her first drink at nine years of age, began smoking pot at 10, and took cocaine at 12, but she says becoming a mother has brought her contentment.
Married to Will Kopelman, 38, they are parents to Olive, three and Frankie, one.

‘I put pressure on myself with everything,’ she said. ‘But the stakes are higher when it comes to children.

‘I have two girls, which is an amazing thing. I have to raise great women.’

Phillip said: ‘Now it seems as though you have everything together.’

But Drew, who looked lovely in a brown kaftan dress and statement necklace, giggled and said: ‘If I have fooled you to think that, then I have done something so right. It’s such a compliment.

‘As a mother, you always wonder how you can do things better. You just want to do everything perfectly for your kids.

‘I couldn’t be happier or more grateful for where my life is at. It’s like a cartoon behind the scenes, of how to keep it all in place.’

Drew Barrymore on Meeting Toni Collette Before Filming Miss You Already

Drew talked with People.com about meeting Toni and about filming together on Miss You Already.

When two actresses meet each other for the first time before filming, there’s no way to predict what the chemistry will be like.

But in Miss You Already, a story about the complexity of female friendship, chemistry was the most important factor for the film. Luckily for Drew Barrymore and Toni Collette, they hit it off right away.

“We unzipped and jumped right in,” Barrymore, 40, tells PEOPLE at the Toronto International Film Festival. “We really got along and we liked each other. We had the electric connection and you can’t fake it. You hope for it, but you don’t know what it’s going to be like when you show up.

Collette, 42, noted that the two women had mutual friends but that they had never really gotten to know each other before taking on the roles. As soon as they began working, though, forming a friendship was “instant and easy,” she said.

Miss You Already tells the story of two lifelong best friends at different crossroads in their lives. Their friendship is put to the test when one starts a family and the other is diagnosed with cancer.

“This [story] is such a celebration of life,” Barrymore says. “You’re not always perfect and weepy. You’re selfish and you’re angry and it’s humorous and you make each other laugh – you’re connected, you’re distant. Lifelong friendship takes so many extraordinary things – it’s birth, it’s death, and that’s what’s all in this film somehow in the most unheavy-handed way.”

Miss You Already made its debut at the film festival on Saturday. It will hit theaters everywhere on Nov. 6.
