Advice From A Dad: Don’t Marry Him!

What are some signs that I shouldn’t marry my boyfriend?

Quotable: Don’t Ask Drew Barrymore Out Via Text Message, OK?

“The fact that I’m begging for a phone call is pathetic in this age of technology. Plans are made by text — I can’t stand it. I just don’t like this compulsive, instantaneous, over-information, lack-of-privacy, weirdo aspect of the world. If you meet someone, they already know everything. What about showing up on the date and saying, ‘What do you do for a living? Who are your friends?’ Yes, you can avoid maybe a serial killer, but who f**king knows? I am a romantic and it scares me…”

Drew Barrymore is bummed about the ways in which technology zaps the mystery out of dating these days. But she also tells Marie Claire‘s September issue that she has given phone sex a try. “I totally tried it,” she says, “with a little success at one point in my life, but it was just a thing you try, like wearing orange for a while. I don’t think it’s something I could live my life with.” [ONTD] Keep reading »

Mary-Kate And Ashley Olsen Were “Little Performance Monkeys”

Mary-Kate Olsen blasted her “Full House” childhood in a new interview with Marie Claire, saying she and twin sister Ashley Olsen were “little performance monkeys.” MK, who has scarcely talked to the press since she was publicly connected to the death of her friend Heath Ledger in 2007, told the magazine, “I would never wish my upbringing on anyone … I look at old photos of me, and I don’t feel connected to them at all.” Apparently, the feeling is mutual. Her sister Ashley also told Marie Claire, “I look at Britney and I’m surprised I didn’t end up like her.” (Sorry, Brit.)

Quite sad to think that all those cheesy made-for-VHS movies made them billionaires, but it hasn’t made them happy.
