Drew Barrymore truly favors her Aunt Diana. ♥️
Hi all, people keep telling me she was on the Property Brothers show but I searched the eps on HGTV to no avail.
I saw they were even on her show talking about it.
Anyone know when it aired? I found it on Google but can't find it on HGTV
Watching the birthday show today, I saw Drew Barrymore taking in how others saw her, and how touched she was by their mutual love and respect. It dawned on me how unaware she is of her effect on others in this world.
It is funny how our reality will keep us so separate. Of course, she would have no idea how far her reach goes, that seeing her on-screen might truly affect someone's personhood due to their own lived experiences at the moment they are seeing her. Like me, I was 10 to her 6 when she was in ET. I was a trauma-filled little girl who wanted to hang with Elliot, but Gertie...I pretended to be Gertie as I played with my Barbies, I escaped into Gertie's imagination. I saw the movie over and over again.
My teen years were a mess - and there she was - living out loud. Getting emancipated, I lived in fear but pretended everything was perfect bc that was what was expected. Drew Barrymore was someone that seemed to be in the periphery of my life that I could look to and say, "She is getting through...I can, too" It had nothing to do with her fame; that just seemed to be the door that allowed me to see this person I could relate to. I was 19 when I read "Little Girl Lost", I remember telling my Mom, "She deserved to be loved." She still does; she is surrounded by it, you can see.
When I was suffering from postpartum, the first time, I watched Boys on the Side. It may be because of where I was emotionally. Still, that movie, that character, Holly, cracked me open and I finally started *feeling* my emotions out loud, not all in a negative way anymore. I finally...finally got help for the mental health issues that had plagued me my whole life. Started...it took me until last year to crack THAT code.
I think what I find so endearing and lovely is that we (people who visit this particular sub) probably could share how Drew has impacted us in one way or another. It doesn't matter if we met/meet her, talk to her or experience another moment, that she had any influence as to leave a mark is pretty fantastic.
Maybe I am just feeling super soft and squishy today, but those connections can be as meaningful in our lives as the ones society demands we seek out.
