DID EGYPTAIR FAKE DREW BARRYMORE INTERVIEW? – (10/05/2018)
Representatives for Drew Barrymore are claiming that she “did not participate” in a celebrity profile published in an EgyptAir inflight magazine. The piece drew a firestorm of attention for a variety of perceived offenses from the shoddy grammar of the article itself to insensitive observations allegedly made by both the author and the subject.
Reads one 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 [sic] take an unlimited vacation to play her most crucial role as a mother.”
But wait, there’s more. The piece continues: “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. Ever since that time, she has been subconsciously seeking attention and care from a male figure; but unfortunately things do not always go as planned and she has not yet succeeded in any relationship for various reasons.”
Yikes! But then Barrymore herself gets quoted saying: “I cannot deny that women made a great achievement over [the] past century, there is significant progress recorded by people who study women status throughout history.” Another comment about parenting reads: “I do not intentionally follow certain parenting methods with my daughters and I do not consult with psychologists… I focus on nurturing their minds as well as their small bodies.”
Did she actually say that? NOPE, her rep screams. In a statement to HuffPo, Barrymore’s team kept it simple, saying that she “did not participate,” and that they’re working with the airline PR team to rectify the error.
The BBC has reps on record saying she didn’t “technically… sit down with EgyptAir for an interview,” but that the quotes were drawn from one such press conference.
EGYPTAIR, HFPA RESPOND
EgyptAir stood by the piece on Twitter, writing: “This a professional magazine interview conducted by Dr. Aida Tekla Former president of the HFPA (Hollywood Foreign Press Association) and one of the voting members of the Golden Globes.”
Meanwhile, the HFPA says it’s investigating. “We are aware that an article under the byline of our member Dr. Aida Takla-O’Reilly regarding Drew Barrymore, published in EgyptAir’s Horus magazine, has come into question,” the H.F.P.A. said. “Ms. Barrymore has been interviewed by H.F.P.A. members many times and we always appreciate her willingness to speak to us. As an organization comprised of journalists, the H.F.P.A. expects its members to uphold the highest degree of integrity in their journalistic activities. Based on our preliminary investigation, we understand that parts of the article in question were not written by Dr. Takla-O’Reilly and that other portions of the article may have come from other sources. We regret any distress caused to Ms. Barrymore by this article.”
