Drew Barrymore: 'I Don't Think I'm a Good Actor'

Drew Barrymore and her husband Will Kopelman go shopping on Sunday afternoon (March 9) in West Hollywood, Calif.

The 39-year-old pregnant actress recently revealed in a new New York Times interview that she doesn’t think she’s a good actor.

“I don’t think I’m a good actor. I feel like it’s fake and yucky and it just doesn’t ring true,” Drew said. “But like Robert said, if you research and you study and make it personal, you just become that person, and it’s your truth and everything else around you falls away. Then you’re telling the truth, it’s not lying, it’s not fake. So he gave me that wisdom because at 6, I guess I was comfortable and more humorous than I would have remembered now. But once I got older and kept continuing acting, I don’t know if I would have succeeded without that advice, because it’s the thing that saved me. I’m not an actor, I’m a pretender.”
