Besides being an outstanding host, Drew Barrymore is also a terrific actor. She has been in the business for almost her whole life. In 1998, the actress played a Cinderella-based character named Danielle de Barbarac, along with Melanie Lynskey and Megan Dodds, who portrayed the role of the stepsisters. All the actresses appeared in their renaissance costumes. Barrymore sported a pair of wings just like in the movie and looked phenomenal. It was a beautiful and wholesome sight to witness.
The Cinderella actress expressed her joy by stating,
“It’s not even a show. We’re just here in a time machine and we’re back 25 years ago because it’s the 25th anniversary of ‘Ever After’,”
She then further added,
“I literally can’t even believe it. I get to be here with my sisters, my step sisters.”
The Andy Tennant-directed film hilariously spun the story of Cinderella, the one we know and love on its head. As Cinderella wasn’t the one in distress anymore, prince charming was. Therefore, Cinderella was the one to rescue him. This unique take made it a huge success at the box office. It was priceless to see all the cast under the same roof after so many years.
