You know that Hulu commercial with Alec Baldwin where he’s an alien turning our brains to soft, goopy edible mush through the power of television on the internet? Somewhere there is a boardroom full of old men (or aliens) twirling waxed black mustaches and guffawing over the latest sales figures of the newest insipid feel-good rom-com. Well, hang onto your helmets and strap on your skates ladies, because “Whip It” is not that movie. Keep reading »

“Ellen has such a beautiful body, and I personally battled with my own body image for years. I used to tell myself, You can’t wearing anything sleeveless or strapless. And all of a sudden I was like, What if I just didn’t send such negative messages to my brain and said, wear it and enjoy it? And now I’m more comfortable in clothes than ever …. [Ellen] was in her frickin’ bra with an open jacket and hot pink shorts, skating around the rink with red lips and … she was sexy as a mother … a feral creature. It was great.”

A few years ago, I heard a rumor about a female fight club on a college campus in North Carolina. I tried for months to find someone who was a member so that I could write a story about them, but I never got very far because, well, we all know the first rule of fight club. Turns out, I should have been talking to Drew Barrymore. In the new issue of Time Out New York, in addition to snapping some gorgeous photos of New York City, Drew sat down for an interview to talk about her directorial debut, the roller derby flick “Whip It.” Here’s what she had to say about the movie and the huge bruises all over her body.
“What I love about [roller derby] is that it’s real and high stakes. And by the way, it’s scary as sh*t to do. I wouldn’t have guessed that the first film I directed would have a sports element, but then again it doesn’t surprise me, because I love girls getting to do what boys do…We also had female fight club. We discovered at a bar one night that I definitely have that, like, feisty little boy inside of me, and when I drink he comes out.” [Time Out]

— Drew Barrymore talks bow ties (among other things) with Time Out New York. On Drew, a bow tie is a fabric smile…on Chris Brown? Well, what do you think?

Once upon a time, Drew Barrymore was referred to as voluptuous, Posh Spice‘s bosom practically spilled out of her dress, and Lindsay Lohan suddenly had the biggest boobs in town. It seems like ages since any tabloid made a ruckus over yet another celeb getting breast implants, and, let’s face it, Hollywood has always had a thing for the well-endowed starlet. So, where have all the big breasts gone? Have huge chests gone out of style? Keep reading »
