Oh, Drew. I’m the same way!
Drew Barrymore‘s promoting her Flower beauty line (she also has a wine line) and because she’s not always on social media, she has to like, do magazine interviews and such. So, she said hi to Marie Claire and talked about makeup, friends and how she’s crap at self promotion.
HereÃ¢â¬â¢s some of what Drew told Marie Claire:
On fame and celebrity friendship: Ã¢â¬ÅIÃ¢â¬â¢ve never felt comfortable with this, sort of, camaraderie of famous people. IÃ¢â¬â¢ve known Poo Poo [Cameron Diaz] since I was 14 years old. We just happened to know each other before her career started, and I was working in a coffeehouse trying to refigure out my life. So in a weird way, it doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t even count with us.Ã¢â¬Â
On making an effort: Ã¢â¬ÅI went to parentÃ¢â¬â¢s night, and I wore some lipstick and concealer, and I thought the people at school looked at me kind of differently. I normally come with acne, and Ugg boots, and I thought they were like, Ã¢â¬ËOh thatÃ¢â¬â¢s nice, she made a little bit of an effort.Ã¢â¬â¢Ã¢â¬Â
On trying to do it all: Ã¢â¬ÅI really had to tell myself, You can do everything, but you will have to do them at different moments. And you can do a lot in the same moment, but you canÃ¢â¬â¢t do everything in the same moment. It was a good lesson that you will just have to prioritize and put some things over here for a little while.Ã¢â¬Â
On being self-taught: Ã¢â¬ÅIt was prompted a little bit by a fear of I donÃ¢â¬â¢t want to end up being 25 and not having ever educated myself in any way.Ã¢â¬Â
On self-promotion: Ã¢â¬ÅI try really hard to keep my Instagram personal and sweet, and use it in a way to engage with people so that I can talk about work stuff, but [self promotion] is so not who I am.Ã¢â¬Â
Okay, it’s pretty obnoxious for someone who essentially grew up in the limelight to say “hey, I don’t like talking to famous people.” That being said, the rest of it is pretty on point. Not every celeb needs to be like a Kardashian with the social media, no?
What do YOU think of the interview?
