London (ANI): 'Charlie"s Angles" star Drew Barrymore says she has
been 'training" to become a filmmaker since she was six years old.
The stunner stepped behind the camera for the first time to work on
the 2009 comedy Whip It. The actress/producer admits her work as a
kid with her godfather Steven Spielberg taught her enough the
skills of direction.
"I handled my godfather's (Spielberg's) scripts when I was six
years old. I've been training for this my whole life, and I'm OK
with slow and steady wins the race," she said. "After producing for
15 years, working with all the filmmakers I worked with, learning
what I like and don't like and really immersing myself in the
process," The Daily Star quoted her as saying.
She added: “I felt much more prepared to go walk that plank
because I knew what I was walking into. You still have to be humble
and know you're on a learning curve because directing is a whole
other animal, no matter how good a producer you are, or how much
you've been watching people. To become the captain of a ship is
just new territory."
