London, March 27 (ANI): If there’s anything that tips off Drew Barrymore, well, it’s being called a celebrity.

The ET actress, who has spent her whole life in the public eye, revealed her scorn for the word, dubbing it reductive.

“Celebrity! It’s become the most disgusting word on the planet. It makes me sick to my stomach,” The Guardian quoted her as saying.

The Charlie’s Angels star continued: “When I started out I was an actor. And now when someone calls me a celebrity, I want to shoot them. I want to go, thank you for reducing me - I’ve worked for 35 years, I’ve killed myself to be established as someone who is responsible, reliable and accountable in my field of work, yet you’re calling me a name of someone who basically got famous for no reason.”

She added: “It’s like the worst name on the planet. I hate it. And people say it all the time: ‘You’re a celebrity.’ No, I’m an actor. I’m a producer. I’m a director. I’m a toad. I’m roadkill. I’m anything but a celebrity.” (ANI)
