Drew Barrymore Does W Magazine In April 2009

  • Pin it

After seeing that mind blurring, moral shadowing March W Magazine with Madonna and Jesus Luz, Drew Barrymore’s cover for the same magazine is true bliss!

Blunt, fashion-less, démodé, Drew Barrymore’s cover picture (or any other picture from this W magazine’s spread) are meant to wash the shame of her Madgesty issue. To my eyes at least. (more images after the jump!)

I always liked Drew. Her cute face, her funny, contagious smile. I’m quite happy she managed to get pas all her addictions and get a new life, but she’s hardly a fashionable person. Thus, seeing her picture as taken by Mert and Marcus and pretend it’s fashion, it’s a blonde lie.

Regardless of her wearing Balmain, the new it-wardrobe of the stylish ones, Drew is actually trying to promote a movie – the first “serious” one she’s ever done. Do you think a non-comedy-romantic role is good for Drew? (you can read her interview here)

I like Drew and the fun and sometimes light movies that she has done. I guess that she wants a change of pace in the acting world. We shall have to see how well she does and is accepted in her serious roles.
As for her W cover, I know that its rebrushed or airtouched but I think that she looks nice and I can take this more than I could take Madonna’s W cover.

I’m a big Drew fan, too, though I question her ability to do real drama. Did you see her in “Donnie Darko”? I mean, I adore the woman, but she nearly ruined that awesome film.

The cover, though, is really fun. She doesn’t look much like herself … but experimentation can be a good thing

And here’s another Drew fan. I’m very sure there’s far more to Drew Barrymore than playing the cute, funny girl. The woman has showed a lot off strenght and willpower yet. She’s yet a producer and tries directing too. So why not playing parts with more depth? I’m really curieus to see “Grey Gardens”. I’ve seen her in “Donnie Darko” which was a brilliant movie and I’ve no memory of Drew [almost] ruin that movie? I’ve re-watched of late again.

As for the cover all these photoshop/airbrushed covers are so tiresome. Wheres Drew’s special charm? This technique makes everything and everyone looks mediocre pretty ala lalaland…..yaaaaaaawnnnnn….

Drew’s own production company made ‘Donnie Darko’ – without her the film could have been compromised in different hands. Besides which, how could she ruin a film she was barely in? She only had about 4 scenes. It was an understated, unshowy role and her performance was perfectly adequate.

As for her W shoot – it’s my favourite hairstyle right now – I’m growing my own to achieve this look.
