This EgyptAir ‘interview’ with Drew Barrymore is beyond weird

A weird Drew Barrymore interview is making the rounds on the internet.

An interview (supposedly) with Drew Barrymore has gone viral but not for the reasons you might expect.  

The feature in EgyptAir’s Horus magazine — which has been described as “surreal” and “fake” — is full of grammatical and factual errors, as well as robotic prose that makes it appear like a bad translation rather than a direct quote from the Hollywood star. 

And there could be something in that, because Barrymore’s representatives have denied that the interview took place. A spokesperson for Barrymore told Huffington Post that the actress “did not participate” in the interview, and that their team is “working with the airline PR team.”

The article first began attracting attention online after it was posted on Twitter by Adam Baron, who’s a visiting fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations (a pan-European think-tank). 

The first sentence of the article described Barrymore as being “unstable in her relationships most of her life”.

Then there’s this odd (and frankly offensive) bit of amateur psychoanalysis in the second paragraph.

“It is known that Barrymore has had almost 17 relationships, engagements and marriages; psychologists believe that her behavior is only natural since she lacked the male role model in her life after her parents’ divorce when she was only 9 years old. Ever since that time, she has been subconsciously seeking attention and care from a male figure; but unfortunately things do not always go as planned and she has not yet succeeded in any relationship for various reasons.”

Aside from speculation over what’s going on inside Barrymore’s mind, there’s this response, allegedly from Barrymore, to a question about the star returning to her “previous graceful body” after pregnancy, and er, fan complaints.

“I feel overwhelmed when someone tells me that I have regained my image and managed to lose that extra weight, especially that I felt depressed due to the significant increase in my weight after delivering Frankie. However, I find this a great opportunity to encourage every woman who is overweight to work on regaining her beauty and body, especially that it is not as hard as one may think; it is all about determination and following the appropriate diet under the supervision of a physician.”

People were baffled by the article and doubted its authenticity.

The article is bylined by Aida Tekla, the former president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), who said the interview was “genuine & far from fake” on Twitter.

As Variety notes, the interview doesn’t appear to be a one-on-one, but rather a group interview which is typically conducted by the HFPA’s members. Fancy that.

Mashable has reached out to Drew Barrymore’s representatives for further clarification.
