Drew Barrymore Apologizes for Doing Show During Strikes, But It’s Too Bad, She’s Going To Anyway: “It’s Complex”


Drew Barrymore is a good little actress.

Almost in tears, the “ET” star says she’s sorry, she doesn’t want to hurt anyone, but she’s doing her talk show despite the WGA and SAG strikes.

She says it’s complex. She’s says she’s had a lot of ups and downs in her life, and this one of them.

Poor Drew. Maybe CBS Paramount TV has threatened to kill her children, I don’t know. But her staff had better start treating audiences with more respect. There have been reports of people wearing strike pins being thrown out. Not a good look.

Drew: you could pay your staff and not put on the show. If it’s about money, your producing partner is married to your friend, Jimmy Fallon. He’s paying his staff and doing gigs to support them. Get your act together!
