» 'Whip' event hosted cream of Hollywood

Barrymore, Spielberg among premeire guests
by Bill Higgins, published on Wednesday, September 30, 2009, 6:35pm PT

Drew Barrymore and her debut as a feature director were the draws for an unusually strong crowd of experienced helmers, including Steven Spielberg, Curtis Hanson, Amy Heckerling, Judd Apatow and Quentin Tarantino, when "Whip It" preemed Tuesday at the Chinese Theater.

"It's especially great to celebrate Drew's film inside the Chinese, where her grandfather's profile is drawn in the courtyard cement," Hanson said.

Heckerling said: "I always knew she'd be a great director. She's got that huge heart."

After-party in a nearby transformed parking lot was extravagant in comparison to other Fox Searchlight preems. Prexy Nancy Utley said the pic was unique: "How many mother/daughter roller derby love stories are there?"

As for her film, Barrymore said, "I have such a tomboy in me, I wanted to make a film for girls that boys would like too."
