Cuter off carpet
Drew’s ensemble at the LA premiere of Whip It didn’t do it for me. Yesterday she was spotted at LAX, SO much cuter. She also looks like she’s late. Apparently she’s always late. Which is why her producing partner initially had reservations about her directing.
Says Nancy Juvoven:
"I said 'No, no, no' for years. 'You're not ready. You need to understand time. There's more to directing than plotting scenes out. Study, study, study and prove you're ready,' " Juvonen says. "I'm the harshest, because I care and love her and don't have any agenda other than her success." What she wanted, she says, was for Barrymore to "be ready enough so the first one isn't the only one."
One of the biggest stumbling blocks by Juvonen's account was Barrymore's penchant for tardiness -- "I almost lunged across the table when someone in a room suggested, 'Well, Drew, we'll just get you a watch,' " says Juvonen, who recalls screaming, "Absolutely not. She can march down and get her own watch if she cares to do it."
It’s a few more days of push for Drew who is hoping to win this weekend’s box office. I think she can do it. I think she will do it. You’ll go see Whip It, right?
