Bizarre Fake Interview Of Drew Barrymore Goes Viral, And She's Not Happy

Drew Barrymore Charlie's Angels

There's a fake interview with Drew Barrymore floating around right now, and the beloved actress is not the least bit amused about it. While it's sometimes hard to know what is true and what is otherwise on the Internet in this day-and-age, it appears that this outlandish interview "with" Drew Barrymore is totally fabricated. Now, Barrymore and her team are trying to get down to the bottom of it. A spokesperson for the Santa Clarita Diet star/producer cleared the air about the fabricated in-flight magazine article, which was pretty ludicrous. Here's what we know about this odd story.

On Tuesday, as it was reported by USA Today (opens in new tab), there was an interview with Drew Barrymore found inside the Egypt Air in-flight magazine that was odd, to say the least. It featured an introduction that passengers deemed a bit offensive. It called out Drew Barrymore for her "several unsuccessful marriages," and it implied that motherhood was an "unlimited vacation" for the film and television actress. They also claimed that Drew Barrymore was "subconsciously seeking attention and care from a male figure," notably since the time that her own parents got divorced. The article was intended to be focused on Barrymore's role as a mother, particularly when she is balancing her time with various projects -- including her darkly comedic Netflix series. But the general tone of the article was reported to be dismissive and inconsiderate, and that is one big reason why Barrymore's team is mad.

Furthermore, when it comes to direct quotes from Drew Barrymore inside the magazine interview, the content from the alleged quotes are dubious. Here are a few of the quotes found inside the article that Barrymore and her team find dubious and irresponsible. You can judge if they're real or not.

I would only resume my career when I feel that my daughters can depend on themselves... The truth is that I used to be very enthusiastic and nervous; but I found myself sympathizing with Olive and Frankie and patiently tolerating their endless questions as if I'm growing a small plant waiting for its ripe delicious fruits after a few years.

Suffice to say, Drew Barrymore is fighting back against this published interview. In addition to the content of the article, which the famous actress finds intolerable on its own, the reportedly fake article centered around Drew Barrymore is also littered with punctuation errors and grammar mistakes. That only adds fuel to the fire that it is fake or, at the very least, quickly and poorly put together. Egypt Air has yet to speak out about the criticized article.

According to Drew Barrymore's spokesperson, the actress didn't participate in this interview and the comments that are reportedly made by Drew Barrymore are reportedly falsified. The spokesperson is also reportedly working with the airliner's PR team to figure out what happened and deal with this situation. But they are definitely not happy. We'll keep you posted on further details about this story when they arrive right here at CinemaBlend.
