Drew Barrymore's New Life As Wife And Mother As She Welcomes Daughter Frankie


Drew Barrymore

Congratulations are in order for actress Drew Barrymore who has just welcomed her second daughter, named Frankie, with husband Will Kopelman. The happy couple are already parents to Olive, aged 18 months and former child star Drew seems to be relishing in her new role as mother to her two young daughters. One might not have imagined two decades ago that the former wild child Drew would one day settle down and raise a family, but it seems the actress has found motherhood to be her greatest role yet.

After two failed marriages, first to bartender Jeremy Thomas and then to comedian Tom Green, Drew’s romantic luck seemed to change when she met art consultant Will Kopelman. Just like Drew, Will knew the pressures of being from a famous family, his father is former Chanel CEO Arie Kopelman.

Blended Trailer


Jim and Lauren are single parents who, after possibly the worst blind date both of them have ever been on, part ways hoping that's the last time they'll ever see each other. However, when the restaurant manages to get their cash cards mixed up, Jim is forced to call at Lauren's house to correct the mistake. It's there he finds out that his boss has just broken up with Lauren's best friend ahead of their luxury trip to Africa, leaving the vacation up for grabs for any other takers. Excited, Jim and Lauren separately arrange to take their kids along on the safari, but are convinced their holiday is ruined when they unexpectedly bump into one another. Against all odds, however, the pair find themselves with more in common than they initially thought and start to bond over their beautiful surroundings.

'Blended' is the latest movie from comedy duo Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler who previously co-starred in '50 First Dates' and 'The Wedding Singer', with Sandler also among the production team. It has been directed by Frank Coraci (' Here Comes the Boom ', 'Click', 'Around the World in 80 Days') alongside writers Ivan Menchell ('Jonas', 'The Nanny'), Clare Sera ('Doin' It Yourself'). 'Blended' is set to hit cinemas on May 23rd 2014.

The 'Grey Gardens' star finally revealed her second baby's gender as she collected her award for Newcomer of the Year at the ceremony in New York in honour of her work with Walmart beauty label, FLOWER Beauty. 'I am so proud to accept this in celebration of women, including my daughter and my future daughter', she declared, with her representative later confirming the statement to E! News.

Having only given birth to 1-year-old Olive in September 2012, it was announced in November 2013 that she and husband Will Kopelman were expecting once again.

The End Has No End? Kristen Wiig And Strokes Drummer Fab Moretti Split.


Kristen Wiig Fabrizio Moretti Drew Barrymore

Kristen Wiig and Fabrizio Moretti appear to have parted ways after a year and a half of dating according to sources at Us Weekly.

The 'SNL' star and The Strokes drummer revealed themselves as a couple to the media at the beginning of 2012 after speculation arose from the pair being spotted canoodling at a Black Keys concert at the end of 2011.

But, for currently unknown reasons, the pair have decided to split though Us Weekly insists the situation is still friendly. 'It was very amicable and they will remain friends', a source told the publication. It wasn't exactly a major long-term relationship, but the separation is a shame nonetheless as it was only a year ago Kristen declared to Marie Claire, 'I'm happier than I've ever been and I feel very lucky right now', and thus adding, 'Where I am now. Who he is. Those are the two big ones', (we're guessing 'he' is Fab).

Grown Ups? Adam Sandler Pounced On By Cheetah In Africa


Adam Sandler Drew Barrymore Bella Thorne

The focus on Hollywood actor Adam Sandler has rapidly switched from last night's joyous Grown Ups 2 premiere in New York to the latest news that he was attacked by a cheetah whilst on African safari with his family. There are few more terrifying happenings to imagine whilst on African safari than being mauled by a hefty big cat and Sandler was lucky that this time a handler was nearby to wrench the brawling beast from the Happy Gilmore comic's back.

Adam sandler
Adam Sandler Was Mauled By A Cheetah On Holiday In Africa.

Speaking on David Letterman's CBS show, Sandler spoke of how he was enjoying his family holiday on safari when he was invited to enter an enclosure with some rescued animals. The keeper suggested that he could feed the captured cheetah with water from his hands and Adam bent down to a pool to scoop some up. Like most living creatures, the sight of Sandler must have irritated the furry wildcat who seemingly went in for the kill, leaping upon the Jack and Jill actor's back as the 46 year-old tried to stand up in surprise.

People Magazine Names Gwyneth Paltrow As The Most Beautiful Person In Its 2013 Issue


Gwyneth Paltrow Beyonce Knowles Drew Barrymore

Gwyneth Paltrow has taken the crown from Beyonce as People’s most most beautiful woman of 2013. It’s the fourth time the 40-year-old actress has been featured in the special “Most Beautiful People” issue of the magazine, but she takes the top spot for the very first time. Paltrow, who is a mother of two, claims it is all due to her five-day-a-week workout regimen and her commitment to staying healthy.

"It makes me look younger and feel strong," Paltrow told the magazine. "When I first started, I thought, 'I'll never be good at this. This is a nightmare!' But now it's like brushing my teeth, I just do it."

This news comes right before the release of Iron Man 3, in which Paltrow reprises her role as Pepper Potts – a character, who is meant to be not only younger than her, but also quite active. The role looks to be physically demanding, so whatever Paltrow is doing, it’s obviously working.

Does Drew Barrymore Have It All? “I Can’t And I Don’t” She Says


Drew Barrymore

At 38, it seems as though Drew Barrymore does have it all. She has her daughter, two businesses, and (presumerably) a huge wealth due to her decades of Hollywood acting work. But for her, it’s not all that simple.

“I can’t and I don’t,” Barrymore said at Lucky‘s Fashion and Beauty Blog Conference Thursday in Los Angeles on that subject. “It sucks when you’ve worked really hard for certain things and you have to give them up because you know that you’re going to miss out on your child’s upbringing, or you realize that your relationship has suffered.” Barrymore could, theoretically, take most jobs in the industry right now. She could even turn her hand to a different art as many actors do in their 30s/40s. But for Drew, that’s not an option right now. “I can’t direct right now because I would miss out on my daughter. It was heartbreaking to let it go, but it was a clear choice,” Barrymore explains. “I was raised in that generation of women can have it all, and I don’t think you can. I think some things fall off the table. The good news is, what does stay on the table becomes much more in focus and much more important.”

“The work-at-home component is brilliant,” adds Barrymore. “I was doing all my business meetings between 12 and 2 because that’s when my daughter was napping, and it helped tremendously!"

Ok, so we weren't, and to be fair most of the world were probably elsewhere too, but three huge stars that were included Jennifer Lopez, Ellie Goulding and Drew Barrymore. All three were appearing on the network's flagship breakfast show Good Morning America, and there were contrasting ways in which each of the ladies coped with the early mornings and brisk seasonal cold.

There must have been something in the air this year because we literally had too many celebrity weddings to choose from for this list (sorry Alec Baldwin, you can stop reading now, you got bumped), and it was a tough job whittling it down to 10. So, who DID make the grade in our run-down 2012’s best nuptials?

10. Amber Tamblyn and David Cross

What was the highlight of actress Amber Tamblyn and actor David Cross’ wedding? Well, sadly, even Tamblyn’s stunning gown couldn’t upstage the antics of their unofficial photographer, Questlove. The happy snapper not only DJ’d at the wedding, but also decided to take a number of pics of the happy couple and stick them on his Instagram account. The Roots drummer revealed pretty much everything from the bride’s arrival, to the cutting of the cake, using the hashtag #weddinginthewoods. So, Amber and David – you just about made the grade, but you have your crazy DJ to thank for it.

Drew Barrymore Takes Daughter Olive To E.T. Era Pizza Place


Drew Barrymore Wolfgang Puck

Drew Barrymore was reliving her childhood this week, by taking baby daughter Olive to a pizza place she used to frequent as a child star. In one of only a handful of post-birth sightings of the actress, she and husband Will Kopelman hit Los Angeles' Spago restaurant for lunch.

So she went for a slice of pizza with her family, big deal, we hear you thinking.  True enough, though Spago holds a little piece of Barrymore history. "She's been coming in since the 'E.T.' days with her mom, for Wolfgang's pizza," a source told the Los Angeles Times of Barrymore's love for the signature dish. The happy couple reportedly shared photos of their new daughter when chef Wolfgang Puck visited their table. Though pizza might be in the Barrymore family fabric, it was another guilty pleasure that Drew gorged on during her pregnancy. "I loved cheeseburgers," she told People magazine of her cravings. "I wanted nothing to do with vegetables."

The actress has a pretty comfortable life ahead, what with her motherhood, production company Flower Films and beauty collaboration with Wal-Mart, though she insists she can't wait for young Olive to grow up. "I can't wait to pick her up from school - just being in the line of cars when she gets out. I want her to live a life where she knows we will be there. That is everything to me. That is what I wanted most when I was a kid, and it's what my kid will have."

Drew Barrymore: Did She Name Her Child After An Animated Reindeer?


Drew Barrymore

Drew Barrymore's baby that she and her husband of three months, Will Kopelman, welcomed into the world last week, has been named Olive Barrymore Kopelman. Olive was also the name of the animated reindeer that Barrymore voiced in the 1999 movie entitled “Olive the Other Reindeer”. The endearing character and film that Barrymore's daughter seems to be named after follows a Jack Russell who is convinced she can take the place of Blitzen the reindeer to ensure Christmas can arrive for all.

Olive is Barrymore's first child, but Kopelman is her third husband. Having been married three months she's well over the half mile-stone of the five months her second marriage to comedian Tom Green lasted.

Big Miracle Review


Very Good
A grounding in the real-life story makes this film much less sentimental than it looks. Strong characters, some surprisingly dark touches and a genuinely thrilling series of events helps to engage us right to the end.

In 1988 Barrow, at the top of Alaska, aspiring reporter Adam (Krasinski) stumbles across three whales trapped beneath the icecap. Unable to reach the open sea, there's just a tiny hole in the ice that lets them breathe. Adam's report goes viral, grabbing the attention of America's press as well as his Greenpeace-activist ex Rachel (Barrymore). And the rescue effort will require an L.A. journalist (Bell), military pilot (Mulroney), Inuit boy (Sweeney), whale expert (Nelson), oil baron (Danson), White House rep (Shaw), two chuckleheads from Minnesota (LeGros and Riggle) and the Russian Navy.

Continue reading: Big Miracle Review

Big Miracle Trailer


News reporter Adam Carlson is based in a remote part of Alaska, in a town called Point Barrow. As a consequence, there usually is little to talk about in the way of local news. After one news report, which saw him explaining how food can take up to four plane journeys to arrive in town, his boss rings to comment about how 'thin' his stories are. That is, until Adam sees something extraordinary out to sea. It transpires that there are three California gray whales stuck under the ice near Point Barrow. Adam captures the incident on his camera and rings his boss to tell him of his findings.

Adam's report on the whales makes it onto the news, where he tells stunned viewers that the ice the whales are trapped under extends five miles to the ocean. No one is more stunned than Rachel Kramer, a Greenpeace activist and Adam's ex-girlfriend. She rings him up to announce that she will help him rescue the whales. Soon enough, Adam not only has the support of his ex but of the entire town as well, all doing what they can to make a path to the ocean through the ice. Adam and Rachel soon find themselves united under a common goal and they slowly start to fall back in love again.

Starring: John Krasinski, Drew Barrymore, Kristen Bell, Dermot Mulroney, Vinessa Shaw, Ted Danson, Stephen Root, Tim Blake Nelson, James LeGros, Rob Riggle, Andrew Daly, Bruce Altman, Gregory Jbara, Michael Gaston, Mark Ivanir and Jonathan Slavin

Grey Gardens (2009) Review


Extraordinary
Most serious film fans know the story of Grey Gardens: how documentarians Albert and David Maysles were investigating the life of Jackie Kennedy Onassis's sister Lee Radziwill for a film and stumbled upon the unforgettable duo of Edith Bouvier Beale and her daughter Little Eddie; how it took a year of "convincing" before the women would allow them to film in their manor; how the resulting motion picture turned the plight of these discarded society matrons into the stuff of living legend; and how since the movie's success, the Beales' story has been adapted into books, a Broadway musical, and a stage play. Now HBO puts its spin on the material, bringing Jessica Lange and Drew Barrymore to the small screen for the TV version of this intriguing tale -- and it's also amazing, just like the subjects.

When they are approached by the Maysles (Arye Gross, Justin Louis) about making a movie of their life, Big Edith Beale (Lange) and her daughter Little Edie (Barrymore) are a tad suspicious. After all, they have let few people in their decaying Hamptons home, and the last time anyone showed up, it was the county health inspector threatening to condemn the mansion. Intrigued by the idea of being in a movie however, the duo agree, and soon we are whisked back to the days when Big Edith suffered through her straight-laced husband Phelan (Ken Howard) as Little Edie wooed Truman Cabinet member Julius Krug (Daniel Baldwin). As she ages, the sullen matriarch wants more freedom. Instead, she becomes a virtual recluse in her home, calling on her jet-setting offspring to come home and care for her. Thanks to relative Jackie Onassis (Jeanne Tripplehorn), they have enough money to live on. But their life is still one of misguided dreams and internalized strife.

Skipped Parts Review


Bad
I have been searching for a delicate way to put this, but nothing has come to mind, so here goes: This movie is seriously screwed up.

Skipped Parts, based on a purportedly much-loved book that I've never heard of, tells the unlikely story of a 15-year-old boy (Bug Hall) in the early 1960s, whose trashy mother (Jennifer Jason Leigh, a fright in platinum blonde) encourages him to do whatever he wants. Namely, that involves experimenting with sex, and our buddy Bug does so, frequently, with the local cheerleader (Mischa Barton, the scariest looking young actress in film today, next to Gaby Hoffman). Meanwhile, mom sluts it up with a friendly Indian while the prepubescent teen becomes pregnant during all this boning.

Donnie Darko Review


Very Good
Donnie Darko is a writer-director's debut that takes on schizophrenia, time travel, teenage angst, dysfunctional suburban family life, societal farce, and hallucinations of an evil bunny in a gorgeously filmed two-hour package deserves serious props. But Richard Kelly's fascinating film is seriously flawed in that it never brings all these disparate elements together in the end. Not to mention that it bears the worst title of the year.

Set in 1988, Donnie Darko is a John Hughes teen movie tinged with David Lynch-ian gloom and perversity. It begins innocently enough around the Darko's dining room table, where we find out the older sister (Maggie Gyllenhaal) is rebelliously voting for Dukakis and Donnie (Jake Gyllenhaal, Bubble Boy) is off his meds. From here, the film churns forward at a hypnotic pace, revealing facts about its disturbed but endearing title character.

Never Been Kissed Review


Terrible

If I see one more high school movie that uses a Literature class Shakespearelesson as a metaphor for raging hormones and whatever else the screenwriteris trying to put across, I swear I'm going to throttle someone.

But such ridiculously hackneyed plot devices are the leastof the problem with "Never Been Kissed," the most agonizing flickever made by Drew Barrymore, an endearing actress with regrettably badtaste in scripts.

Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz And Lucy Liu Strip For 'Charlie's Angeles' Director


Drew Barrymore Cameron Diaz Lucy Liu McG Motley Crue

The stars of 'Charlie's Angels' - Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu - are apparently so close to and comfortable with director McG that they once stripped off for him. McG, who's real name is Joseph McGinty Nichol, explained the incident when his leading ladies stripped in the back of a van while attending the Super Bowl of Motorcross.

The director recalled: "They're all very free with their physicality. They've all seen me naked, I've seen them naked. That's how we get down. We got a big limo van, put on old Motley Crue records, and Drew and I stripped down. It's sort of fabulous the way we all trust on another, most particularly Drew. Drew is very into the body, very natural. It's a splendid thing."
