Drew Barrymore loved expressing her dark side in ‘Grey Gardens’

Washington, Mar 10 (ANI): American actress Drew Barrymore has revealed that she loved performing her miserable act in her new TV movie Grey Gardens.

Barrymore, 34, further revealed that she is not always the happy-go-lucky person she portrays in most movies and chat shows, and that playing the role of Little Edie Beale gave her the chance to vent out her depression.

“I was excited to bring my own pain to something. I mean, contrary to my happy-go-luckiness, I have so much darkness in there,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling W magazine.

“Playing Edie, I felt like s**t. I thought, ‘I’m afraid beyond anything I’ve ever known. I’m miserable; I’m scared; I feel sick all the time.’

“And I was like, ‘Good! At least I have somewhere to put it…’ I’m not f**kin’ happy all the time. I like making people feel good, but it was great not to have to please anybody,” she stated.

Barrymore admits that preparing for the film, which co-stars Jessica Lange and Jeanne Tripplehorn, reminded her of a stint in rehab when she was a teenager.

She became so immersed in the character of real-life recluse Beale, she locked herself away for six months, and turned her back on friends, newspapers and technology.

The character she plays is of former U.S. First Lady Jackie Kennedy Onassis’ odd cousin, who lived with her mother in a sprawling, rundown New York mansion. (ANI)

Sports Illustrated cover girl Bar Refaeli adorns Southwest Airlines jet

Melbourne, Feb 12 (ANI): A US airline has started a controversy after it decorated one of its planes with a picture of Sports Illustrated cover girl Bar Refaeli in a sexy swimsuit.

The Southwest Airlines Boeing 737-700, which was unveiled for the first time at La Guardia aiport in New York, has its whole length decorated with a picture of Refaeli lying seductively in a revealing white bikini.

The plane will be flying between New York and Las Vegas and it will bear the sexy image on its fuselage for a limited time, reports News.com.au.

The controversy came up after it was revealed that in 2007 a Southwest Airlines employee had allegedly ordered a passenger off a flight for wearing a revealing outfit.

Kyla Ebbert, 23, from San Diego claims she was only wearing a snug-fitting white top with a scoop neck that stopped just short of showing cleavage during the incident.

Ebbert said the flight attendant suggested she go to a gift shop to buy clothes. She offered to pull the top of her jumper tight over her breasts and her skirt down as far as possible, a compromise that was accepted.

The incident caused uproar in the US, with Ebbert appearing on a series of chat shows before posing for Playboy magazine. (ANI)
