    It seems like Drew Barrymore can do it all: act, direct, produce, run businesses and be a mom — but she confesses that is far from the truth. “I can’t and I don’t,” Barrymore said at Lucky‘s Fashion and Beauty Blog Conference Thursday in Los Angeles.“I was raised in that generation of women can have it all, and I don’t think you can. I think some things fall off the table. The good news is, what does stay on the table becomes much more in focus and much more important.”

    Later, during one of the panel discussions at the conference, the Big Miracle star, 38, said she walked away from some of her goals because she didn't want to be absent for any of the big moments in Olive's childhood. "You know that you're going to miss out on your child’s upbringing or you realize that your relationship is going to suffer if you work night and day and weekends," she explained. (Barrymore married art consultant Will Kopelman in June 2012 in Montecito, Calif.) "Unfortunately, I was raised in this like generation of like, 'Women can have it all,' and...
  • Did Mr Potter get away with the money? [Wonderful Life] - Vanity

    This wonderful Christmas perennial is very unusual for films in that Hays Code Era, a villain gets away with the crime. Does that affect your feelings about this movie? For me, when I saw this movie in my youth, it did catch my thought and I remember asking my parents why. Now as a seasoned adult, I think that I appreciate a movie that does not wrap up all of the threads into a neat package.

    My Pitch Meeting With Steven Spielberg by J. Neil SchulmanHere's a picture of Steven Spielberg with E.T. (Spielberg is the one on the right.)In 1982, when E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial was released, six-year-old Brian Herzlinger first got a crush on its young co-star, Drew Barrymore. Twenty-three years later, with a video camera obtained under morally ambiguous circumstances and $1,100 prize money he won on a game show, Brian decided to make the charming, inspirational, and laugh-out-loud funny movie, My Date with Drew, in which he documents his campaign to get a date with his crush. Strategic to Brian's campaign to...

    The reason I'm an optimist about the future of America is because I tend to think that MTV does not speak for young Americans. But if I'm wrong, if the MTV generation is as perverted and spiritually impoverished as its namesake, then we might as well elect Drew Barrymore president in a few years and get this country all over with. Miss Barrymore, the 28-year old blond Hollywoodite, is "a repressed voter," she says in her new MTV documentary "The Best Place to Start." As a young person who is admittedly clueless about the whole voting thing, Barrymore wants other...
