EgyptAir Magazine Has BIZARRE Interview With Drew Barrymore

I’m not usually someone who reads magazines, though I do find myself reading inflight magazines more than just about any other paper publication. Sometimes I find myself a bit bored on a plane either during taxi or takeoff, so the reading material in the seatback pocket is a natural place to turn.

Sometimes inflight magazines are actually sort of enjoyable to read, while other times they’re awful. Well, Twitter user @adammbaron took to Twitter today to share what must be the strangest article I’ve ever seen in an inflight magazine.

This comes from EgyptAir’s inflight magazine, Horus, which claims to have had an interview with Drew Barrymore. Yes, it has a few quotes from her, but everything else in this story is just totally nuts and cringeworthy. I understand that sometimes stuff may get lost in translation, but this goes beyond that.

Just to give you a little teaser, here’s the first paragraph:

Despite being unstable in her relationships most of her life, despite the several unsuccessful marriages and despite the busy life of stardom that dominated her life for several years; the beautiful American Hollywood actress Drew Barrymore has recently decided to temporary take an unlimited vacation to play her most crucial role as a mother.

The story goes on to say:

It is known that Barrymore has had almost 17 relationships, engagements and marriages; psychologists believe that her behavior is only natural since she lacked the male role model in her life after her parents’ divorce when she was only 9 years old.

Something tells me Drew may not have fully signed off on this story, and that EgyptAir won’t have any other celebrities lining up to be featured in their inflight magazine…

  1. I laughed when i read it earlier today and ended up missing my subway stop!

    Come to think of it, someone must have approved that story and that’s the Editor in Chief. What were they thinking? This is all kinds of sheer madness.

    I guess someone at Egyptair doesn’t like Santa Clarita Diet!

  2. When women sleep around before marriage they are trying to find themselves and when guys sleep around after marriage it’s cheating. Everyone has different timelines. Don’t let women shame you into some BS morals play.

    Nope. Finding yourself is a lifelong journey and you should be allowed to find yourself anytime and with anyone. Women are finding themselves when they are young and hot and in demand and when they get old they want to play emotional games of loyalty and fidelity.

  3. Oh and nytimes has lead story of trump’s taxes aka frauds.

    Eff white Republican males. Scumbags and pieces of shit.

  4. Your blog title is misleading. Barrymore’s interview isn’t bizarre – as you don’t even share her quotes – but rather the feature story on Drew Barrymore is what’s odd. Making that edit will shift the blame to Egypt Air, as it should be, and not the celebrity subject.

  5. I don’t get why this is even a story on this site. She’s a c-d grade celeb who has nothing to do with air travel, points accumulation, etc. Who cares.

  6. Never flying on this airline, obviously. Who are their partners…?
    Lt Col Chris MacLean

  7. @ clams

    Whatever your views on her celebrity, she was apparently crucially involved in securing approval for the great “Donnie Darko” to be made.

    If that’s the only good thing she achieved in her life we should all be worshipping at her feet!

  8. EgyptAir, in general, has an outrageously terrible command of English. Look no further than its southern neighbour (and Star Alliance partner) Ethiopian Airlines for an example of how professionally an airline can publish its magazine.

  9. She was very good in Never Been Kissed. It’s not wise to touch those inflight magazines…a strong likelihood that filthy fingers have been on them.

  10. @ the nice Paul .. don’t forget ET, although she was only 7 .. the Santa Clarita Diet was fun

    She’s also the grandniece of Ethel and Lionel Barrymore

  11. Oh come on, why all the whining about it being fake?

    This is a very reputable form of journalism, invented by Dan Rather, and perfected by the NY Times and the Washington Post, known as “fake but accurate”. 😉
