“Ellen and I are as just silly, fun girls that love each other and people can make out of it what they will. There’s nothing there but fun girlie friendship and affection.”

“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]
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 »

Yay! The trailer for Ellen Page’s newest movie, “Whip It,” is out and it looks ambrosia for any stifled suburban girl, even if you’ve never broken some chick’s collarbone in a roller derby.
With Drew Barrymore, Kristen Wiig, Juliet Lewis, Eve and Ari Graynor (the drunk friend from “Nick And Norah’s Infinite Playlist”) all playing bad-ass roller skaters named Smashley Simpson, Dinah Might and Malice In Wonderland, how can you go wrong? Keep reading »
I’m a huge Drew Barrymore fan, and I simply adore Ellen Page. So, basically, “Whip It” is destined to be my next favorite movie. In this comedy about the roller derby, Page plays Bliss Cavendar, a 17-year-old who rebels against her mother’s pageantry wishes by joining a derby team called the Hurl Scouts. Yes, they wear demented Girl Scouts uniforms. With characters like Smashley Simpson, Babe Ruthless, Bloody Holly, and Maggie Mayhem (which is an ode to the screenwriter’s real-life derby name), this film is practically guaranteeing hilarity. And as for the name of the movie, “Whip It” has nothing to do with the Devo song—it’s actually a move used in the sport to get ahead of the pack. Keep reading »
