Drew Barrymore Online

Bon Appétit did an interview with Drew discussing her Barrymore Wine and food and the enjoyment of cooking!

Instead of trying to do it all at once, Hollywood icon turned wine entrepreneur Drew Barrymore is taking it one recipe–and one grape, starting with Pinot Grigio–at a time.

Let’s start with the basics: What’s your approach to eating?
I hate women who say they can eat whatever they want, because I don’t relate to that at all. It isn’t fair! I absolutely live for food.

Favorite meal of the day?
I didn’t grow up in a traditional family and I never had a family dinner around the table, so whenever I actually had a dinner “plan,” it meant a lot to me; it made me feel excited and safe. And now that I’m an adult, dinner is a great pleasure.

How did you start cooking?
I became obsessed with food sometime in the last decade. I’m pretty late to the game. I’m such an avid magazine reader–music, art, beauty magazines–and I found that food and restaurants were pouring into everything I cared about. Whether it was the pop-up concept, or some mysterious mini-mall restaurant, I got swept up in the sexy romance of the food movement.

What do you listen to in the kitchen?
I cooked to Chet Baker the other day. Old, moody, yummy jazz is so good. Then again, I also think you should cook to N.W.A. Or Madonna. The other day, I poured a glass of Champagne and started blasting “Express Yourself.”

What do you cook for you and your husband?
I’m good at making one thing at a time, so it’s usually a one-pot situation–for now! I make this Thai peanut noodle dish with scallions, sesame seeds, and a peanut butter-Sriracha sauce with a yummy, gummy noodle type of thing. I also make Asian meatloaf, so instead of tomato sauce, you make it with hoisin sauce. And I love doing spaghetti and meatballs and having leftovers.

So, Barrymore Wines. How do you select them?
I’ve always loved Pinot Grigio. Next up, I’d love to find myself in Provence for rosé, or Argentina looking for a Malbec, or maybe back to Italy for one of the three B’s [Barbaresco, Barolo, and Barbera].

Favorite red?
I love a good Tignanello. That’s the bottle I turn to if I want to do something really special for someone.

Are you a wine snob?
Not at all. In fact, I’m sure wine snobs look at me and think, How dare you.

What’s the eating plan for your infant daughter?
I’ve been made to feel bad that I’m not steaming all of her vegetables from a farmers’ market, or for only giving her jarred organic food. But I refuse to feel bad about any of it. I wish I were that all-homegrown-food, perfect woman, but I’m not. I’m the mom with the kitchen on fire, and food on our faces, and we’re happy, singing and playing.

Deadline shared this news about the film Animal which Drew is executive producer for!

EXCLUSIVE: Horror network Chiller today announced the addition of two features to its line-up of 2013-2014 original movies. Animal, from exec producer Drew Barrymore and her Flower Films banner, follows a group of friends stranded in an isolated cabin who find themselves hunted by a predator. Deep In The Darkness stars Sean Patrick Thomas and Dean Stockwell in the tale of a NYC doctor who moves his family to a small town only to discover a race of creatures living in the woods behind their home. Both films join previously announced features Beneath, from director Larry Fessenden, and The Monkey’s Paw, adapted from W.W. Jacobs’s short story, to launch Chiller Films’ new multiplatform release strategy. The four titles will get limited theatrical runs via Synthetic Cinema International before debuting on VOD in partnership with NBCU Digital Distribution.

When plans for a weekend vacation hit a dead end, a group of close-knit friends find themselves stranded in unfamiliar territory, pursued by a menacing, blood thirsty predator. Holed up in an isolated cabin, tensions mount as long-buried secrets are revealed. As the body count rises, the group must put their differences aside and fight for survival. Animal is from executive producers Drew Barrymore and Nancy Juvonen, and producers Chris Miller, Ember Truesdell, Kelly Smith and Thommy Hutson for Flower Films. The film is written by Thommy Hutson and Catherine Trillo and directed by Brett Simmons; creature effects are by Gary J. Tunnicliffe.

I found this quote on Express.co.uk and thought it was wonderful!

DESPITE A tumultuous childhood which saw Drew Barrymore in rehab aged just 14 and legally emancipated from her mother at 17, the now married actress and mother of one feels that karma has bought her the settled life that she craved as a youngster.

“I won the in-laws jackpot,” says Drew, who married Will Kopelman in 2012.

“It might be the best karma for having one of the wackiest upbringings. I never had dinner with my mum or dad, let alone all together. It’s amazing to think that in life you can completely have a do-over.”

I love Tip Tuesday and this week gives us a special treat as Drew features co-star Bella Thorne in her tip. They are currently in South Africa filming Blended and Bella shares with us her favorite Flower products.

“The FLOWER Tip Tuesday video program is something I am very passionate about – I love to know what beauty fanatics are interested in and enjoy experimenting with new looks using some of my favorite products from my line,” Drew told JustJared. “I chose Bella to be a part of the program this week because she is both beautiful on the inside and out. She loves playing with beauty products as much as I do so we had a great time!”

In 2001 Drew played Beverly in Riding in Cars with Boys.

The comedy-drama RIDING IN CARS WITH BOYS (2001) is the fresh, funny, touching and unbelievably true story of writer Beverly Donofrio (played by Drew Barrymore, who ages from 15 to 35 in the role), who comes of age in the late 1960s and has her entire life colored by an event that happens when she is 15 years old. Directed by Penny Marshall in her first collaboration with Academy Award®-winning director/producer Jim Brooks since the smash hit “Big (1988),” the story spans over 20 years as it reveals this unlikely heroine’s often humorous, occasionally irreverent, always unique personal journey to make something of herself.
