Drew Barrymore Online

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.”

E!Online spoke with Adam about working with Drew as he insists that he scares Drew off!

Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler’s new film Blended is the third film that the actors have starred in together playing love interests (they’ve also costarred in The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates).

So are Sandler or Barrymore getting tired of working together?

“She wouldn’t want it every day, so I have to give her a pass every four or five years,” Sandler joked to us exclusively at last night’s Blended premiere in Hollywood. “And then I jump in and remind her of why she moved on.”

As for having to repeatedly romance a longtime friend onscreen, Sandler says, yes, it does get awkward.

“Absolutely, for Drew every time,” he laughed. “It’s been awkward when we were strangers for her. But I keep saying, ‘They paid you, buddy, get in here.'” LOL!

Meanwhile, at last night’s premiere, Barrymore gushed about her 1-month-old daughter, Frankie, and her 20-month-old daughter, Olive. “The girls are happy and healthy and I’m just so lucky right now,” she said. “It’s insane.”

As for her recent family photo shoot, Barrymore said, “It was ridiculous. We are like anything but the perfect family. It was like, ‘Oh my god, this is nuts! I hope we get a picture, but if we don’t, who cares?’ But it was great.”

Drew loves her in-law’s but it seems the feeling is mutual as Coco Kopelman talks with Life & Style magazine about what a good mother Drew is!

Drew Barrymore’s mother-in-law, Coco Kopelman, couldn’t be happier about the tender way the actress juggles daughters Olive, 19 months, and 4-week-old Frankie.

Raving about her daughter-in-law, Coco exclusively shares with Life & Style: “She is the quintessential mother.”

“With the new baby, she’s very delicate,” Coco says. “With Olive, she makes her laugh…she clowns around with her on the floor. She’s a real entertainer, which is what she’s done all her life.”

And Olive is doing her bit to take care of her little sis.

“She’s very affectionate,” Coco tells the mag, adding, “she loves to pat Frankie on the head. It’s very cute! It’s exactly what you want for two little girls who are 19 months apart.”

Pick up the new issue of Life & Style, on stands now to read more, including Coco’s parenting advice for Drew + an exclusive interview with Drew’s sister-in-law.

Drew is the cover feature on the new issue of People Magazine on stands this Friday! Her and Will share family pictures of their new daughter Frankie!

Drew Barrymore is the first to admit taking care of a newborn and a toddler has been an adjustment.

The actress, who delivered her second child with art advisor husband Will Kopelman on April 22, says her recovery with newborn daughter Frankie was quicker this time around than following her first pregnancy with elder daughter Olive, 20 months.

“I knew that I have two kids to take care of now and just kicked my own butt to get back into the swing of things immediately,” she tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story.

The biggest challenge? “Just being split. They’re awake and asleep at different times, or awake at the same time, and it’s a juggling act a little bit.”

Barrymore, 39, says her own tumultuous childhood influenced what she sees as most important for her kids.

She wanted Olive “to have a sibling, because I really would have liked that in my life,” she says. “And always being on time, being there when I say I’m going to be there. Creating a real stable home. I know when my daughter wants to swing higher and jump into the pool and all of these things, she feels safe. To make your kids feel safe is everything.”

Barrymore says Olive is relishing having a baby sister – so far. “Olive loves Frankie and just wants to hang out with her all the time,” she adds. “She wants to feed her. She’s super into it. That’s now. I’m sure things will ebb and flow.”

Now promoting Blended, her new comedy with Adam Sandler which hits theaters Friday, Barrymore admits she wasn’t sure she wanted to act anymore after Olive’s birth.

“I didn’t think I could go back to work, honestly. I didn’t want to be away from my kids and it just wasn’t the priority,” she says. “With Adam, he makes everything really safe because he really creates an environment where kids can come and be a part of it. It was a really big lesson for me.”

Knowing duty would be calling so soon after she gave birth “kept me at least physically present and sharp,” Barrymore adds. “As opposed to being a brain scholar, which I am not right now. As I walk into a room to get something and pass the doorway, I’ve forgotten already.”

For Drew’s album of intimate family photos with Frankie, Olive and Will – and more of her exclusive interview – pick up this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday
