Spokesmodel Alert: Drew Barrymore is a CoverGirl!

04/11/2007 at 05:12 PM ET

Not only is she a successful actress and producer, but Drew Barrymore can now add CoverGirl to her lengthy resume! Drew will not just be the face of the new campaign, but she will also be co-creative director for the tv commercials, debuting in January 2008. Esi Eggleston Bracey, Vice President and General Manager, CoverGirl Cosmetics in North America, says “we wanted to honor Drew’s passions as a filmmaker and are thrilled she is not only lending her beautiful face to CoverGirl but also lending her artistic talents as the co-creative director of the ad campaign.” But don’t worry — the actress isn’t exactly switching careers. “I leave the makeup and product up to them, that’s their expertise,” she told The Associated Press in a phone interview from the set. “What I want to do is honor the tradition of CoverGirl but hopefully bring myself and my personality into it, as well as some edgy fashion-forward thinking and positivity to it.” As for becoming a model, the actress joked, “What girl doesn’t fantasize about it?”

Drew Barrymore is BEAUTIFUL! She’s a talented actress, beautiful, smart and seems so humble. Cover Girl chose the right lady as their spokesperson. Isn’t this what we need on TV? Sure she’s an actress, and she has an extensive movie career that we can only dream of having, and money too, but she just looks like an average looking girl. Not afraid of going out looking normal and not glamorous, but she can still glam it up on the red carpet, but still look simple, but amazing. She’s so low key, and that’s what I love about her. She’s over come things in her life, that some can recognize with, and I’m happy for all that she’s accomplished so far.

truly they made the right choice. She has turned into a beautiful woman.

Drew has like this nautral beauty and I think that is exactly what a CoverGirl should have. She looks so pretty and I love her hair.

She looks GREAT in yellow.

I think Drew is an awesome choice as well, She’s pretty has a girl next door look about her.

If anyone wants a chance to get covergirl’s lip gloss for free. Seventeen Magazine and Covergirl are giving away 10,000 samples.

I want to 2nd the comment from “me.” I’m equally grossly disappointed, if not disgusted, that Drew has taken the route of promoting a company that continues to torture (or finance that of) nonhumans in laboratories, despite whatever public relations propaganda Cover Girl cosmetics company chooses to publicize. I’ve also recently learned that she allegedly returned to eating the Standard American Diet of murdered animals, dairy & eggs. This is a total 360 from her prior advocacy for nonhumans in general and I wish she’d break out of whatever brainwashing abyss into which she’s recently fallen. We have too many brainless cyborgs among the celebrity class already. We don’t need another formerly respectable and brilliant recovering drug addict (which I thoroughly appreciate) to go down the same route, akin to Katie Holmes falling for Scientology. What a filthy shame!

I love her makup. It looks so flirty and cute. It’s perfect for a date.

if drew barrymore has her own website on loving animals, than why did she become the spokesmodel of covergirl, a company that tests their products on animals?

Kristen Bezek on

I just wanted to say I love the commercials with Drew Barrymore and I believe she was the best choice Covergirl has made for spokesmodel and she really is sweet and has loads of personality. I look forward to seeing what new things you guys come up with her. She is the best!!!
