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…
This interview with Drew Barrymore in the Egypt Air in flight magazine is, umm, surreal. pic.twitter.com/fN3lNHXbL0
