Technology and social media make everyone feel “more connected,” she said, “but [we''re now] weirdly disconnected.”

She said: “You have to not pretend to be perfect, because that”s not only boring as [expletive], but it”s just not real.

I celebrate what (Ricky) is doing because we have to create a world for each other where acceptance is first and foremost,” she told Access Hollywood.
Drew Barrymore has made up her mind to go on a vacation this year since she feels she hasn”t taken a break since three years.
Barrymore”s directorial debut ”Whip It” released in 2009 and she is also preparing for her next movie ”Going the Distance”.
And the 35-year-old star is planning to go on a holiday once her movie releases in August this year.
“My flaw that I”d like to make peace with is to take a vacation. So if I do that this fall, you”ll know that I”ve done something for the first time in three years”, the Daily Star quoted her as saying.
Drew Barrymore would prefer to resemble an old mutt than resort to age halting mechanics such as Botox, facelifts and liposuction.
The 35-year-old ET actress revealed she had no qualms with wrinkles and looked forward to growing old.
“I’m so curious as to what’s going to happen naturally that I can’t imagine wanting to alter things just yet,” the Daily Express quoted her as saying.

Drew Barrymore”s latest film Everybody”s Fine apparently bears streaks of her emotionally fractured childhood.
The actress plays Rosie Goode, the daughter of Frank (portrayed by Robert De Niro) who mistakenly believes she has been living the Las Vegas high life.
“Clearly everybody”s not fine in the family but that”s what modern families do. They put on a front,” the Mirror quoted her as saying.
The 35-year-old star continued: “It”s a film about connection and communicating. I found the whole concept intriguing. As you grow up there is this shock at how distant people can become, how much they grow apart and how difficult it is to carve out time for your family and friends.
“Rosie puts on an act for her father because she knows he”s really proud that his little girl has realised all her dreams.
“So even though she”s struggling, she”s not going to show him that. She”s trying to do the right thing but, like her sister and brothers, she”s stuck in a cycle that needs to be broken.”
Drew Barrymore is convinced that she was a dolphin in a previous life.

“They were groping each other and making out in the middle of the bar. They couldn’t have cared less if there were other people in the room,” Contactmusic quoted a reveller as telling Life & Style magazine.
“Justin held her hand or had his arm around her constantly. They make an adorable couple, and they seem totally in love!” the reveller added.
Actress Drew Barrymore along with Emmy Rossum and other celebrities rallied on the streets of Hollywood to protest against the new California ban on gay marriage.

Star Trek actor George Takei, Kelly Osbourne, Sophia Bush, comedienne Kathy Griffin and singer/actress Deborah Gibson are among other celebrities who have criticised California”s approval of the ban.
“I was raised a good Catholic girl and nowhere in church do I remember it ever being an issue for everybody to be treated equally. I can”t believe it”s 2009 and this is still an issue,” the Daily Express quoted Gibson as saying.
Osbourne added, “It goes without saying that if you love someone, you should be able to marry them no matter.”
