» Drew: Being director takes time

by The Press Association, published on April 5, 2010

Drew Barrymore has revealed that it was only a matter of time before she tried to prove her worth as a director.

The Charlie's Angels star has been in front of the camera for three decades, and decided to make her directorial debut in Whip It, starring Ellen Page and Marcia Gay Harden.

"I handled my godfather's (Steven Spielberg) 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, I felt much more prepared to go walk that plank because I knew what I was walking into."

Despite a wealth of experience, Drew - who appears in the film as tough skater Smashley Simpson - admitted she's always learning.

"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," she added.

Whip It is released on April 7.
