Stepping out for a media appearance, Drew Barrymore was spotted at ABC Studios in New York City this morning (January 25).
The “Never Been Kissed” actress dropped by “Good Morning America” to talk about her upcoming movie “Big Miracle,” due in theaters on February 3rd.
She explained, “I play this woman who in real life is named Cindy Lowery and she’s a Green Peace advocate, and the news media broke this story in 1988 of these three California grey whales that got trapped in the Arctic Shelf near Alaska. And she got wind of it and sort of really galvanized all of the political people around her.”
“And then this story just grew and grew and grew. Like Tom Brokaw loved this story. This was something that was in his wheelhouse of things he wanted to talk about at the end of the program. Much like today in the strangest of ways, there’s like this social media aspect in the way that it was really the news that got the people to focus on this and it grabbed the kids’ attention and they wanted to know what happened with the whales. But then it grew and it became political and environmental.”
