What an amazing night!
Drew Barrymore, Toni Collette, Sydney State Theater, movie night and all for a good cause! #MissYouAlready
I am beyond words at the moment at the experience I had the other night. An emotional basket case! 🙂
So when the opportunity arose that I could see the new movie featuring Toni Collette and Drew Barrymore all for a good cause, i jumped at the chance. I got even more excited to discover that both stars were going to attend the event all for the National Breast Cancer Foundation!
My girl crush has been Drew Barrymore for as long as I can remember, since ET! Seeing her the other night, mere meters away from me, talking about strength, and friendship and platonic love stories, just moved me. She’s amazingly talented, gifted, intelligent and beautiful, i don’t think there are enough words to explain how much i admire this woman! From her own struggles to her amazing triumphs! She is everything! An actress, an entrepreneurs, a humanitarian, a mother, a wife, a friend and more importantly a woman! how can someone not want to be her BFF!
My fellow Piscean spoke with some much passion, and vulnerability and truth she brought me to tears! All I wanted to do was just go up and tell her how much she meant to me, how she was my role model growing up alongside her and how much she shaped my life! Unfortunately I couldn’t do that, but breathing the same air as her and listening to her speak will remain a memory I will treasure forever.
The Movie – ‘Miss You Already’
What an amazing movie! I’d like to say that I didn’t cry every moment, but I did. It was beautifully told, the story about how two best friends deal with everything when one of them has been diagnosed with breast cancer was told with simplicity, honesty and love. The thing that I loved the most about this movie was the raw realness. The brutal truth, about how the frustrations and the sadness and effect of one persons suffering is felt by everyone. From friends, to families, to children, parents and co-workers, the message that support is always there, even when we are hurt, and really struggling, it was real and raw and damn honest!
