Drew Barrymore graces the May, 2009 cover
May, 2009 issue also includes a fantastical underwear photo shoot by Alexei Hay and style by Joe Zee. Drew talked to Elle
about her breakup with Fabrizio Moretti, her career and her role in HBO's Grey Gardens
, which premieres April 18th.
On her breakup from boyfriend Fabrizio Moretti
: "It's hard to be with someone for five years and say, This isn't going to work. But it was a time in my life where I finally just said, I can't live for anyone else anymore. I have to be on my own."
On the Hollywood career she would like to try
: "I'm in my thirties now, and I really want to try all the things that I haven't gotten to do yet, like directing, and doing a drama. I've produced and gotten to do a lot of optimistic love stories, and that was so where I was at for 10 years in my life. And now I feel like, Okay, now I know how to do that. I wanted to get scared again."
On preparing for the role of Grey Gardens' Little Edie
: "I did what I do when I have a big challenge lying in my path. I go to school. I shut the windows, the shades come down, the phone gets turned off, I donít go out - I study."
