The Story Behind Drew Barrymore’s Online ‘Meltdown’
Listen now
On the show today… In news that might mean your favourite TV shows will never return (dramatic but true) following the ongoing Writers Guild of America strike, SAG-AFTRA, Hollywood’s largest union which represents all actors, has voted yes to greenlight their own potential strike. Here’s what all that means for the future of Hollywood. And Katherine Heigl and  Ellen Pompeo have appeared in Variety's Actor on Actors series together, discussing publicly for the first time their stint on Grey’s Anatomy and the hatred that followed Katherine when she left. Their discussion shines a whole new light on one of TV’s biggest controversies. Plus, Drew Barrymore was recently profiled in New York Magazine, which resulted in a number of outlets picking up the story and running headlines that said she wanted her mother to die. Drew then posted an emotional video to Instagram calling out these outlets for twisting her story. But we have a confession about how this story has been run and how it got so twisted.
