 It's beautiful... picked it out and he's just got lovely taste, and it's really fancy. I'm sort of like a funky, eclectic girl so I feel like this is very fancy and I'm trying to like, you know, feel comfortable with it.

 I think everyone expects you to kinda know right away what all the plans are. And I'm like, oh goodness, it happened a month ago. Do I not have it together, or is it okay to keep daydreaming? I root for his happiness and people's happiness. I like positivity! I'm a sucker for it.

 He’s the cat’s pajamas. I couldn’t love, respect, admire and enjoy that individual more than I do. It would be physically impossible for me to have any more giggly joy at this person. 
— Drew Barrymore about his boyfriend Justin Long / September 15, 2010
 I’m really good on my own. I was good in my early teens, and then I got really bad at being alone for like 10 years. And then for the last decade I’ve developed such a love of my independence that I have to go, Okay, you’ve had dinner by yourself three nights in a row, now you have to see your friends. 
— Drew Barrymore / September 15, 2010
 I feel like I’m so grateful for my life. I really love my family and I feel their blood in my veins. But I grew up in a very un-posh environment with a struggling single mother. We were both paying the rent together. It was a tough circumstance, but I think that gave me a sense of gratitude. I worked as a waitress so I’m a crazy tipper — I respect people that work. I work myself really hard and I think to be raised in a working class environment was very helpful. As extraordinary and fancy and decadent as the Barrymores are I did not grow up in that kind of environment.

 I feel like I do have a family, they are my friends and they really mean everything to me. I don’t know what I’d do without my friends. I feel like I almost live my life to be able to have the luxury of being around them. And I feel like, if I’ve got in touch with what is important in life, my friends are the first thing on my list. They are my heart. 
— Drew Barrymore thinks of friends as family / September 05, 2010
 I just want to make my friends laugh. I want to make them feel that if they had a bad day I could be someone who provides dinners or atmospheres or weekends where we can all sort of go away and relax and sort of spend time with each other. I definitely like organizing things socially. Do I cook for them? No, no, no. I provide a place and some wine and we just try and make each other laugh.

 I need them (rom-coms) at the end of a crap day — a nice happy ending and a fairytale. On the other hand I like movies that are very grounded in reality but still maintain their comedy. 
— Drew Barrymore watches romantic comedies when she had a bad day / August 25, 2010
 I swear to God, with some of these romantic comedies, these women are being shot in the bu** with steroids, and I feel like they’ll eat the husband alive on their wedding day. It just terrifies me — I don’t relate to that at all. I’m not at that place in my life where I want to play a character who says, ‘I just have to get married.’ 
— Drew Barrymore doesn’t relate to movies which depict women as wedding obsessed and needy / August 25, 2010
