Drew Barrymore: I've Never Felt Comfortable with the 'Camaraderie of Famous People'

Drew Barrymore takes the cover of Marie Claire magazine’s April 2016 issue.

Here’s what the 41-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On fame and celebrity friendship: “I’ve never felt comfortable with this, sort of, camaraderie of famous people. I’ve known Poo Poo [Cameron Diaz] since I was 14 years old. We just happened to know each other before her career started, and I was working in a coffeehouse trying to re-figure out my life. So in a weird way, it doesn’t even count with us.”

On making an effort: “I went to parent’s night, and I wore some lipstick and concealer, and I thought the people at school looked at me kind of differently. I normally come with acne, and Ugg boots, and I thought they were like, ‘Oh That’s nice, she made a little bit of an effort.’”

On being self-taught: “It was prompted a little bit by a fear of I don’t want to end up being 25 and not having ever educated myself in any way.”

    They named a Chinese city that, so it’s just double the Whinnie? I think 200 cities were built in only a few years at the time.

    The question is: What is a real good friendship ?
    Nowadays nobody cares about objective criteria for a real good friendship. Everybody seems to have his own personal subjective definition. As long as everybody keeps his own subjective definition of a real good friendship (and does not clearly talk about it !!!), they all talk about it in a too unprecise way and thus, still don´t represent the same kind of definition.
    That´s all so paradox. Then they talk about a friendship without really understanding what the other meant by saying that.
    The 2nd question:
    What is more important:
    Having a real good friendhip or having a real good relationship ?
    (The premise: If you have to decide betwee 2 of them ?
    (Of course, most people would like to give the answer, that
    both of them – at the same time – would be the best. Yup, no doubt.
    But that´s not the question here !)
    The answer: As the sexuality is in the sphere of the relationship but not in the sphere of friendship, the relationship is always (more) and thus, more
    important thant the friendship.
    (As long as the sexuality is something important)
    Example: 2 women should not kiss lip on lip and then say, that this is a real good friendship. That would be a relationship and not a friendship, right ?
    The right definintion must always be concretized enough.
    And also a certain quantification seems to belong to this concretisation. Perhaps a kiss per month (lip on lip) could be tolerated (between women) as something, that still belongs to a very good friendship. Or is that too much ?
    I let this question open.
    217, give me 5, makes 222, THE MAGIC DREW !!!
    Finally there is a 3rd question:
    We could all get lost in a world of too much individualism.
    Will there ever be a common sense, if we all lose the sight for
    2 friends say they love the music of a certain album of a certain singer. Sounds good a the first sight. But then the one says: I don´t like track 8 of that album and track 5 is my favorite. And the other says: My favorite is track 8 and I don´t like track 5.
    And oops: They do not seem to have the same wave-lenght !
    And these differences to other things:
    Movies, chocalte, cocktails, paintings, totes, clothes, cars, hotels, artists.
    AND THEN: Where is the friendship ???
    Yup, of course, that leads to the question, what a friendship is.
    (Of course, having some same concrete interests is JUST ONE aspect
    (= one criterion).
    And folks, we´re living in the AGE OF GROWING VARIETIES !!!
    And we have to face its consequences.
    Too much variety leads to too much differences.
    Nowadays its hard to find 5 friends, who really all like to
    see the same movie in cinema – at the same time.
