Drew Barrymore Is InStyle Magazine’s September Cover Girl!

Drew looks gorgeous in these photos, she just looks better the older she gets.

 

A brief excerpt from the Drew Barrymore cover story, “A Real-Life Fairy Tale” by Ariel Foxman, which  appears in InStyle’s September 2013 issue.

ARIEL FOXMAN: Olive is a year old now. What types of things are you experiencing with her now?

DREW BARRYMORE: Yesterday I took her to the Guggenheim Museum, and these two little girls were dancing in front of a light installation. They were about 7 years old, and Olive just loves kids. We put her on the floor, and you could see how much she wanted to play with them. I had this weird mix of emotions. I was so proud of my daughter that she was giving of herself, and I began remembering those moments when as a child, you’re like, “I wanna play! I wanna play!” And the other kids are like, “Not now, kid. Beat it!”

AF: “Step aside!”

DB: I was like, “Oh my god, this what being a parent is.” It’s a lot of pride and a lot of nervousness.

AF: Are you an anxious parent?

DB: I love the person who said, “Parenting is like wearing your heart on the outside of your body.” It’s the most beautiful, perfect analogy. I have anxieties about how much I’d like to get it right, making sure I provide her with an environment that’s safe, nurturing, and loving. And silly and free, also consistent and grounding. Then I just have the same typical fear every other parent has: Are they going to fall down?

AF: Is your husband, Will, very calm?

DB: Will and I are a nice balance of opposition and similarities. He always says, “being calm is so important.” Because I tend to be not calm. I probably act more like a chicken with its head cut off! But I can also be very strong. I’m entering my 40s, and now I get to step back and take these incredible, extraordinary life experiences and life lesson and apply them to being a parent.

AF: What are the most important lessons you have learned?

DB: Nothing comes for free. Life does not provide you with an easy ride. You have to face really deep internal and sometimes external challenges. It’s so humbling. Not to take away from the really big obstacles everybody faces, but I’ve also learned you just have realize how ridiculous certain things can be.

Olivia Wilde covers the “Jeans” issue of InStyle Magazine!

Olivia Wilde lands the December August cover of InStyle Magazine. Odd coloring and clothes for the August issue, isn’t it? Anyway, it’s the jeans issue I guess, so maybe that’s why the cover seems so out of place for August. Olivia isn’t really promoting anything these days, but has a list of movies in the works. Maybe she’s just promoting her upcoming marriage to comedian Jason Sudeikis? The two got engaged last winter, and they seem totally in love.

On being comfortable in the here and now: “I’m pretty comfortable in my own skin. I’m not the neurotic type. I don’t think there are things lurking everywhere to destroy me. I live pretty much in the present.”

On her fiance Jason Sudeikis: “I like having a real partner. It’s the model I grew up with. It’s part of why I was able to take so many chances in my life, because I felt like someone was watching my back. I could never imagine life without someone I respect, someone who offers me infinite possibilities.”

On the ups and downs of dating in Hollywood: “There are spikes and dips and plateaus in this business. I’ve seen couples fall apart through it, and it is heartbreaking. You wonder what will happen–will he love me if I’m not as successful? Will jealousy kill us? I know there will be times when Jason is working more than I am, but I’m actually excited by that. I’m excited by what he will become, what depth he has.”

InStyle Beauty Find: Extend Your Mani for 10 Days?!?

I am really intrigued by this beauty find from InStyle. I have tried a lot of their secret finds and I have found they all work as great as they say. My polish never stays on, even two days is a minor miracle on my nails. I can’t wait to grab a bottle of this and put it to the test!

CND Stickey $9
Pinkie swear: Just one coat of this nontoxic base extends a mani-pedi’s life to 10 days, says London pro Trish Lomax. “It’s like a double-sided sticky tape for nail lacquers.”

Salma Hayek talks about her beauty in the new InStyle!

Okay – that might not be a direct quote, but it’s basically what Salma Hayek’s saying. How else do you read this quote. “I know people have always thought I was beautiful, but I have never tried to be as beautiful as I can be. I could do a lot more—exercise, or not eat dessert. Or not drink alcohol. I could make bigger efforts. I don’t think my first priority in life has ever been beauty. It’s a little bit of a rebellious spirit in me. There is more to me than looks, of course. I think if you are afraid of getting older, you age faster.” See what I mean?

Anyway, Salma lands the July cover of InStyle magazine. She DOES look gorgeous on the cover, doesn’t she? In the interview she talks quite a bit about herself – which I suppose most people do – but with her, she comes off as self-absorbed. A teensie bit.

Her style at the age of 47: “I actually wear a lot of leather on the red carpet. My husband loves when I wear it.”

Going strapless at 47: “When I turned 40, I started thinking, ‘This is the last year,’ whenever I’d wear a strapless dress. I always thought you can’t wear them after a certain age, but I’m still getting away with it.”

Dressing for her husband: “I’m not really a fashionista. I have an eye. I can pull it together, but a lot of the effort I make is for my husband, because I want him to be attracted to me.”

On beauty as a priority: “I know people have always thought I was beautiful, but I have never tried to be as beautiful as I can be. I could do a lot more—exercise, or not eat dessert. Or not drink alcohol. I could make bigger efforts. I don’t think my first priority in life has ever been beauty. It’s a little bit of a rebellious spirit in me. There is more to me than looks, of course. I think if you are afraid of getting older, you age faster.” CONTINUE READING… More »
