Drew Barrymore Is Getting Her Own Talk Show: 6 of Her Most Memorable Interviews

Drew Barrymore is making the move to the other side of the talk show desk.

Drew Barrymore has been famous since literally before she can remember.

Coming from generations of hard-living actors, it must have seemed inevitable for her to go into the family business, but her first acting role was in a puppy chow commercial when she was just 11 months old. She has said that she got the role after the dog she was performing with bit her on the nose and she laughed.

Through the incredible career that has followed, she has managed to maintain that upbeat attitude through a tremendous amount of ups and downs, which has made her a charming guest on basically every talk show since the 1980s. Now she's preparing to take a seat on the other side of the talk show desk, conducting interviews on her own daytime talk show, where she plans to "spend an hour every day celebrating life."

Actors and their stunt doubles coordinated to make some next level social-distancing action

One of the things that has kept quarantine from being completely dull has been watching different media figures adapt to the new restrictions.

SNL has had fun with minimal at-home wardrobe and makeup and green screen silliness. Talk show hosts are making video calls work for interviews and sketches, and abundant free time has made it possible to organize massive, virtual cast reunions from various beloved TV shows and movies. But no other group has had quite as much fun with the challenge of social distancing content as the star-studded cast of Zoë Bell's elaborate new fight scene, "Boss B**** Fight Challenge."

The New "Charlie's Angels" Reboot Looks Like Another Male Gaze Fantasy

Charlie's Angels can't shed its core premise of badass women answering to a lazy man.

Sony Pictures Entertainment

Charlie's Angels has always been a male gaze fantasy couched in faux female empowerment.

Unfortunately, the new Charlie's Angels seems no different. Watch the trailer here:

CHARLIE'S ANGELS - Official Trailer (HD) www.youtube.com

Set to a new collaborative single by Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande, and Lana Del Ray with the apt lyrics "Don't call me angel / Don't call me angel," the Charlie's Angels reboot seems hellbent on subverting franchise expectations. But even with a female writer/director (Elizabeth Banks), Charlie's Angels can't shed its core premise of a group of cool, badass women ultimately answering to a mysterious man named Charlie. After all, this is CHARLIE'S Angels.

The reboot follows a new group of Angels played by Kristen Stewart, Ella Balinska, and Naomi Scott. Bosley is a woman now, played by Elizabeth Banks. And this time, they're going international...or whatever.

In 2019, the concept of Charlie's Angels is extremely outdated. Even if the movie did somehow manage to successfully bring something close to female empowerment to the big screen, it's bothersome that in our wildest fantasies, we still can't imagine a world where these "Angels" don't work for Charlie––or where Ella Balinska's midriff is bared for the "plot." Even if the mysterious Charlie turned out to be a woman using a codename, it wouldn't change the movie's real selling point: "badass" sexy women performing for an intended male audience. Retire this franchise.
