Drew Barrymore Gets Directorial Advice From Steven Spielberg

Drew Barrymore wears a cute TopShop belt while catching a flight at LAX airport in Los Angeles on Wednesday (September 30).

The 34-year-old actress will make her directorial debut this weekend with her roller derby flick, Whip It.

“[My godfather Steven Spielberg] is a great mentor,” Drew told Access Hollywood. “He always talks about how important that is, mentoring, and he keeps his word. He really does… [He] told me when I was doing ET, ‘Never act your characters, be your characters.’ So I’ve always been very performance-oriented since then in trying to really believe in what you’re doing and instead of acting, just being that person.”

Other pictures include Drew with boyfriend Justin Long at yesterday’s after-party for the Whip It premiere. 20+ pics inside…
