Barrymore: 'Acting Is Like Being Two People At Once'

Screen star DREW BARRYMORE puts so much energy into her movie roles, she likens being on a film set to living two lives simultaneously.

The CHARLIE'S ANGELS star always tries to take time out between jobs in an attempt to maintain her equilibrium, but because of the mental intensity required from the different characters she plays she finds it impossible to switch off.

The 30-year-old says, "I'm trying to live in two characters' heads. It's been challenging, but I'm used to it.

"Every time I have a couple of weeks off between jobs I think, 'I'm just going to do my own thing,' but I always come up with a project to do.

"I can't sit still for a minute.
