Breathe

Site

I have wanted to make a site to Drew Barrymore since I first started making sites in 2000. Drew is my favorite actress, and I wanted a place to discuss her films and pay her tribute. Lots of things kept me from building this site over the years. I thought celebrity sites had to be news and media sources, and I wasn't up to maintaining either. I also didn't think there was anything unique I could do that hasn't been done tens of times by other Drew sites. In 2010, I decided to just go for it. I figured I could do something personal to her with lots of opinions and reviews. I also wanted to discuss some of her characters, because her characters are what made me love her in the first place, and I actually enjoy analyzing characters. What ended up being created is what you see before you. It's completely different from other celebrity fansites, but it's completely me. I now have a place to rant and rave about Drew's films and characters, and I'm having fun with it. I hope you like it.

Breathe Drew (or simply Breathe) officially debuted on July 31st, 2010. I had this name picked out for years. Breathe comes from a quote from my favorite Drew movie, Ever After. "Just breathe," is uttered by Danielle as she tries to calm herself and draw strength to walk into the ball and face Henry and Rodmilla. It's a really great scene. I think "Breathe" can apply to Drew as well as Danielle. Like Danielle, Drew had a lot holding her down, but she possessed the strength to rise above her problems and come out a better person, attested by her success and philanthropy. I really admire Drew, and I'm glad I finally made this site.
