EgyptAir Magazine Has BIZARRE Interview With Drew Barrymore

EgyptAir Magazine Has BIZARRE Interview With Drew Barrymore

22

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…

    @Debit -please take your meds and stop this charade; you’re annoying.

    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". ;)

    And Fever Pitch and of course the Charlie’s Angels reboot!

  5. Icarus Guest

    @ 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

  6. Paolo Guest

    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.

  7. VT-CIO Gold

    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.

    Lucky, you should have done a post about this guy:

    @ 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!

    Never flying on this airline, obviously. Who are their partners...?

    FAKE NEWS!!!!!!!!!!
    CLICK BAIT!!!!!!!!!!!

    Did you apply for a Chase card yet?

  12. cls Guest

    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.

  13. Stephen Prat Guest

    Egypt Air faked the interview, apparently.

    Some of the comments here are way more bizarre than the interview...

  15. Tim Guest

    Drew is saying the interviews a fake:

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/m.huffpost.com/us/entry/us_5bb3cc6fe4b0876eda992909/amp

    Can’t wait to see the airline’s explanation! Really bizarre!

  16. Carlitos Guest

    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.

    Credit where credit is due

  18. Debit Guest

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

    Eff white Republican males. Scumbags and pieces of shit.

    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...

    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.

    @Sam - More like the Editor in Chef.

  21. Sam Guest

    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!

  22. Reba Guest

    I don't see what the big deal is.
