Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore, and Ginnifer Goodwin, the stars of He’s Just Not That Into You, talk about hookups, breakups, to Marie Claire.
Ginnifer Goodwin: I want alcohol.
Jennifer Aniston: [to waiter] Grey Goose on the rocks with lime and olives. [to the girls] Then I remove the olives. Not good for the eyes.
Drew Barrymore: Salt. I know. The days of being able to eat Chinese food and wake up looking okay the next day? Gone.
Marie Claire: [to Barrymore] Wait, you’re only having a Shirley Temple? That’s it?
DB: It’s a school night. [Barrymore is directing her first feature, Whip It!, and has been in the editing room all day.] I know there are some good, crazy, psychotic directors who can work and party. I just can’t.
JA: I know. There are actors who can do it, too — just be completely high. And you’re like, “He was on heroin? I thought that was just a really emotional performance. I never saw somebody cry like that!”
MC: Speaking of crying, I almost wept in empathy when I saw how gullible and open Ginny’s character in He’s Just Not That Into You was with guys. Are you ever like that in real life?
GG: Oh, my, yes. I was raised in this Southern culture where if a guy was sarcastic, that just meant he didn’t know how to show his love — but secretly he cared! I completely bought that. The men I chased and the things I put up with — it was criminal.
DB: Yeah, so many girls are told these fairy tales like, “If he’s mean to you, he likes you.” All that horseshit, which sets women on the wrong path.
