Drew Barrymore quits doing stunts after getting a concussion filming Santa Clarita Diet
“I will never do my own stunts again,” says the actress. “That was the end of a wonderful era. I can look back at a bunch of movies that I totally was a baller and always threw myself in there. I whip it in Charlie’s Angels! But I will never do a stunt again because I could’ve died and it was really scary.”

Drew Barrymore: Santa Clarita Diet brought me back to acting when I was in a "dark place"
“I definitely personally was in a very dark and fearful place and then this script came along and I was like, ‘Yeah I don’t think this is a good time’ and ironically, I think it taught me a valuable life lesson,” Barrymore says of her Netflix series in an interview with NBC's Sunday Today. “Sometimes when you think something is the worst timing and the worst idea, it can actually become the thing that saves you and pulls you out and gives you a new focus, and empowerment, and switches your constant stuck way of thinking and feeling and (puts) it into something else that might actually get you to a healthier place faster."

Drew Barrymore recalls flashing David Letterman: "It's like a distant memory that doesn't seem like me -- but it is me"
Since she was back in the Ed Sullivan Theater for Stephen Colbert's Late Show, Barrymore recalled the famous moment from April 12, 1995 when she jumped on Letterman's desk and flashed her breasts for him in honor of his 48th birthday. Barrymore has no regrets, adding: "I literally was like, 'What?' I sometimes think, 'That doesn't feel like me.' It's like a distant memory that doesn't seem like me—but it is me. And that's kind of cool. I'm still down with that. I'm a mother of two. I don't know. I'm such a different person now that it doesn't feel like me, but I'm still into it."
