Drew Barrymore becomes her character on film setsDecember 5th, 2007 - 6:43 pm ICT by admin
New York, December 5 (ANI): Actress Drew Barrymore insists that while on the film sets, she becomes exactly what her roles demand.
Telling about her acting technique, she said that she gets immersed in her characters completely.
I never act my characters I am them, the New York Post quoted her as saying.
The 32-year-old actress plays Little Edith Bouvier Beale in the documentary film Grey Gardens, which also stars beleaguered Baldwin brother Daniel.
The film is based on the life and times of the eccentric aunt and cousin of Jackie Kennedy Onassis, both of whom were named Edith Bouvier Beale.
They were raised on Park Avenue but later became recluses who retreated to their rambling summer estate in the Hamptons. There they lived with raccoons, opossums and 75 cats.
When their house was raided in 1971, health inspectors found it strewn with empty cat food cans, newspapers and cat feces.
Onassis later organized a clean-up, which required 40 gallons of germicide. (ANI)
