Drew Barrymore Doesn't Think "Me Too" Survivors Should Have "A Tone of Anger"

*Drew Barrymore does not like the tone of the #MeToo movement. Stephen Colbert asked her about it and she said:

“I think it’s phenomenal… and overdue and wonderful and the only thing I have a personal ‘thing’ about is tone. I don’t want anything to have a tone of anger. I know people say anger is healthy, I have a dark side that’s, you know, a huge chasm, but I’ve never been an angry person."

*Drew, who comes from a powerful Hollywood family that includes John Barrymore and got her first role at the age of 6 from her godfather Stenen Spielberg, says this about women in Hollywood:

"I’ve never expected people to hand me anything and I never expected them to believe in me. I had to create enough homework and data to show proof to them. So I want, I hope that people won’t do it with anger and expectation because what you really have to do is prove that you are capable."

“I think it’s important for women to work hard at their dreams and do it without anger... So maybe there’s a healthy anger and an unhealthy anger, but I can assure you that if you have the abilities and you stay positive and you don’t expect things to be handed to you and you really work towards them, all the greatness will come, because I was never treated like a little girl who couldn't do it."

If u stay positive, will good things come to you?
