Jonah Hill's SNL "Five-Timers Club" sketch made a cringe-worthy mockery of sexual harassment
The sketch featuring Hill, Tina Fey, Candice Bergen and Drew Barrymore "is not only capped by a sexist joke about the women redesigning the jackets to look like fitted blazers, but it’s full of punchlines that make a mockery of serious allegations of sexual harassment," says Meghan O'Keefe. She notes that this is the second tone-deaf SNL guest spot for Fey in recent years, following her controversial Weekend Update Charlottesville sketch in the summer of 2017.

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."

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."
