Drew Barrymore's profile declares - in a tone of genuine surprise - that she can actually act! (In movies other than romantic comedies! Without her distinctive California Valley Girl accent!) It also made a point to mention twice that she is, in fact, thin. While the profile is mildly insulting, the pretty photos of Barrymore submerged under water do make up for it. But like most women's magazines, those pretty pictures are the issue's only redeeming quality. For example: what's up with the unflattering acid-wash jeans and intellect-patronizing articles on sustainability? Below, find out what else is in store for you.
