Drew Barrymore On Fire In Harper’s Bazaar Photos — SEE PICS HERE!
Drew Barrymore is on fire, literally, in the March 2016 issue of Harper’s Bazaar. Check out the photos below!
Barrymore was photographed by Jean-Paul Goude for the shoot, which is an homage to the 1984 movie Firestarter. The blazing flick was one of the former child star’s first roles, with Barrymore playing a little girl with pyrokinesis — the ability to control fire with one’s mind. For the magazine spread, the actress appears with the top of her head alight, with flames also emanating from her hands and feet.
Fittingly, in the accompanying interview, Barrymore talks about the concept of hotness. “Hot is a state of mind. It’s an energy. You’re hot when you’re motivated. It means you want it and you’re going after it. Hot isn’t about being on the A-list of having a hot body,” she says. “It’s literally people who are on fire. Like Lena Dunham is on fire. Amy Schumer. Louis C.K. I think their brands of comedy and observational life stuff are some of the coolest I’ve seen in so many years.”
Barrymore goes on to admit, “I don’t think I’m hot right now necessarily, because I have all my irons in a bunch of different fires. I’m writing. I’m doing makeup. I’m doing design. I’m expanding [my production company] Flower into different categories. I think it’s a huge mistake to think you have to burn bright for your whole life. You cannot sustain it. It’s exhausting, and it’s not very realistic.”
The star also reflects on lighting up the big screen with the film adaptation of Stephen King’s Firestarter. “I always said, ‘Back off. Back off. Just back off, and don’t make me angry.’ Then I would clench my fists and scrunch my face a little bit and breathe rapidly, focus my eyes on something, and then blow it up,” remembers Barrymore.
She adds, “And although I’m such a peacekeeping hippie, I wish I had that power every once in a while. I totally wish I could blow some stuff up with my eyes.” For now, the photos below will have to do… at least until a movie reboot comes along.
“If I was obsessed with the world of film the way I used to be — and may one day be again — I would love to remake Firestarter,” says Barrymore. “It’s such a cool concept. Ooh, and with the special effects now, you could do so much!” Check out the special effects in the Harper’s Bazaar pics below!
