If you still think of Drew as some kind of airhead hippie flowerchild, get it straight: "I make movies," she says. "I have a passion. Puppies and daisies don't accomplish anything. That's not me at all."

Nope, the lady is a worker bee, who has made fifty-five films. Reminder: She's 35! But it sounds like she's ready for a vacation:

"For three years straight, I've been burning the candle at both ends, and as of last December, I just didn't have anything left. I've been so aggressive about living life to the fullest and being plugged into everything, but now I've ripped the plug out of the wall and put it on the floor for a while. I'm thinking about the same things as when I was 15, about spirituality and who I am, who I want to be. It's cocoon, pupa, larva, and fuck, I'm reborn!"

DISCUSSION

am i the only one that gets bothered when celebrities say things like this? i come from a working-class family and my parents were always freaking exhausted after their 12-16 hour days (and then they had to come home and take care of the family!). they had to worry about keeping their jobs and making ends meet, and wouldn't make in a lifetime of their difficult work what the celebrity makes in a year. i think it's unfortunate that she feels tired, but come on!—at least you have the option to take a break from work for a while—or forever!
