Always the clown! Drew Barrymore’s ‘ridiculous dances’


Drew Barrymore feels her most beautiful when she’s doing “ridiculous dances”. The 39-year-old actress loves to make others laugh, and getting down in front of husband Will Kopelman always seems to do the trick. And Drew, who’s currently guest editing for, tells readers in a new Q&A making Will chuckle with her dance moves is what makes her feel her best.

'I do interpretative comedy dances'

“…Making my husband laugh with my ridiculous dances,” she responded to what makes her feel beautiful.

“I do interpretative comedy dances and he’s laughing, and his laugh starts to sound almost like Santa Claus because it’s such a high pitched capacity. That’s when I feel the prettiest,” she confessed. “I can’t believe I’m telling you this!”

Drew also shared a few of her beauty and style tips. These days, the mother-of-two is all about making the most of her time, and says she’s mastered the art of getting ready in “two minutes”.

“I actually am going to do an experiment video to show this,” she promised.

The actress has a reputation for taking risks on the red carpet, and she intends to keep it that way. Asked if there are any looks she would never try again, Drew shrugged: “Nah.”

“Just keep playing. Never get worried about what people say because it’s good to not be afraid. And certainly to not be afraid about what people are going to say,” she said.

She’d also give the same advice to her younger self.

“It’s good to appreciate and remember to not be so hard on yourself because I bet it never looks as crazy as it does in your worried eyes. We have to be nicer to ourselves and we probably look thinner and younger and healthier and happier than we worried about in that moment,” she said.
