Drew Barrymore & Ellen Page: Marie Claire Cover Girls!

Drew Barrymore & Ellen Page: Marie Claire Cover Girls!

Drew Barrymore and Ellen Page are yummy in yellow on the October 2009 cover of Marie Claire, on stands Sept. 15.

Drew sounded off on her Whip It! costar: “Ellen has such a beautiful body, and I personally battled with my own body image for years. I used to tell myself, ;You can’t wear anything sleeveless or strapless.; And all of a sudden I was like, ;What if I just didn’t send such negative messages to my brain and said, wear it and enjoy it?; And now I’m more comfortable in clothes than ever.”

Drew added, “She was in her frickin’ bra and with an open jacket and hot-pink shorts, skating around the rink with red lips and… and she was sexy as a mother…. a feral creature. It was great. And it’s so screwed up for girls to think, Oh because I don’t have that cookie-cutter model body, it must mean I don’t have the right body shape. And I love model bodies, but I just want women to embrace several body shapes. That’s the thing I love about derby. It’s really welcoming.”

Ellen and Drew‘s upcoming roller derby film Whip It! opens on Friday, October 2.
