Writer and political analyst, Adam Baron, tweets on Tuesday October 2nd posting screenshots he took of an apparently fake EgyptAir’s in flight magazine, Horus, interview with American actress Drew Barrymore.
Baron, who was an EgyptAir passenger, spotted the fake interview during his flight to Cairo and immediately took screenshots of the “surreal” questions posting them on Twitter saying “This interview with Drew Barrymore in the EgyptAir in flight magazine is, umm, surreal.”
According to the Huffington post Barrymore’s spokesperson denied her participation in such an interview, declaring that her team is “working with the airline’s PR team”. On the other hand, the airline still ceases to respond to the allegations made by the viral post and fans’ responses.
The interview, written by Aida Tekla, gets off to an offensive start claiming that Barrymore has dedicated her life to motherhood whilst putting her career on hold despite “being unstable in her relationships most of her life”. Meanwhile, Barrymore is back again to the screens starring in the series “Santa Clarita Diet”.
The interview continues to assume information about the Hollywood star claiming that “Psychologists believe that her behavior is only natural since she lacked the male role model as a result of her parents’ divorce when she was only nine years old”; not in fact mentioning the identities of those psychologists.
Assumptions made by the interview did not stop at claiming that the actress is putting her career on hold until her daughters are independent enough or facing a constant struggle throughout her life when it comes to relationships with the other sex, however it also suggested that “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.”
The interview’s questions are shallow and some of them are quite offensive, particularly the one about Drew’s postpartum body following the birth of one of her kids.
‘A few years ago, after your last delivery, you gained several kilograms that even your fans accused you of being overweight and neglecting your health. However, today I see you have returned to your previous graceful body; what is your secret?’ the question asks.
‘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,’ reads Drew’s response.
Until this moment EgyptAir didn’t issue any official statement or respond to the Huffington post’s request for a comment on their article. Barrymore’s team also did not give any further comments regarding the interview.
