We love seeing gals come out to support their fellow gals. 

Charlie's Angels first hit screens back in 1976 as a tv series, and then spanned a 2000 reboot starring Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu.

Fans fell in love with the badass-ery and unique personalities of each woman, and the stars have shown that they value each other off screen as well as on.

The actresses emerged full throttle to support Lucy Liu, who received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The fierce action adventure movie also starred Demi Moore in the 2003 sequel, and Moore was on hand to celebrate Liu's historic award, according to Vulture;

"Lucy and I first met while making Charlie's Angels- I didn't know we were going to have a reunion today," Moore gushed in a speech.

"I could see she was in fact as I had heard a badass with brains. Then the better I got to know her I realised she wasn't just about a badass with brains, she was a badass with brains, a beautiful heart with a deep loving soul and a damn good sense of humour." AW.

The honoree herself was clearly excited to see influential faces within the crowd;

"My dear Angels," said the 50-year-old veteran actress, "It's a 20 year reunion. Twenty years ago, we were an elite crime fighting team and now look at us." (THEY LOOK UNREAL)

Liu continues to break glass ceilings in the industry, and takes pride in her mission for her  three-year-old son, Rockwell.

"Today there is so much more representation on screen," she added.

"Now, he can see himself in this world and he won't know there is a limit. I never set out to be groundbreaking. I didn't have the goal of being a first. I just wanted to what I loved."

Liu is only the second Asian-American woman to receive a star on Hollywood Walk of Fame, after the silent-movie actress Anna May Wong received hers almost 60 years ago.

“Asians have been making movies for a long time,” Liu said in her speech. “They just weren’t making them here because we weren’t yet invited to the table.”

She also referenced Anna May in her speech;

"A hundred years ago, she was a pioneer while enduring racism, marginalization, and exclusion,” she said. “We could actually start our own little Chinatown right here.”

The Kardashians are always on top of the latest beauty trends, but this one is next level eccentric. From the 'vampire' facial that Kim made famous to micro-needling; the famous reality star family try some pretty out there beauty routines.

Kourtney shared an image of herself and Kim using an unusual face mark regime which absolutely TRANSFORMED their faces, and fans were alarmed to say the least. Their eyes and lips are completely contorted, and it's not a filter.

The gals were trying out the new Korean facial mask named Hanacure, which is meant to be some type of anti-ageing miracle of some sort.

"Kim convinced me to use this face mask and I feel stunning," Kourtney wrote to her Instagram followers.

38-year-old Kim and 39-year-old Kourtney manage to defy ageing, with skin products or money, and now they're giving their social media followers a good laugh at least with the latest one. The gel mask creates a zombified effect on the skin, hence the alarming response from fans.

The lifting serum works its magic presumably; their skin was soaking up the supposed renewing and rejuvenating effects.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by official hanacure® (@hanacure) on

The Hanacure Multi-Action Treatment Mask "promises to ‘dramatically transform the appearance of your skin" by removing impurities and dead skin cells from your pores.

You peel back the top of the square ‘gelling solution’ pot, pour in the vial of ‘purifying compound’ and shake until mixed, and then spread the mask over your skin with the brush provided.

Ironically, the face contorts and as the mask dries and tightens, it gives you wrinkles. You get older…trying to look younger. Picture Charlize Theron in Snow White and the Huntsman. We're glad Kourtney has a sense of humour about it at least…

Drew Barrymore has gotten real about the breakdown of her marriage. 

The 43-year-old has taken to Instagram to speak openly about her relationship with her former husband, actor Will Kopelman. 

The actor posted snaps of herself and Will and penned empowering message about what she has learned from her divorce.

She wrote, ''Once upon a time…I remember reading an article that said I had gotten my happy ending after all.''

She continued, ''Looking at this picture, it sure looks that way. And then, like many times in life for all of us, our plans change and our dreams are adjusted. But that doesn't mean that every second wasn't worth it. And if that DeLorean time machine pulled up every day, I would do it all over again. After all, I did get my dream. 2 healthy girls.''

She added, ''Will and I continue to marvel at what we made and try to be the best co parents we can be. It’s not always easy and the point is…nothing in life is. But it doesn't mean that any bitter outweighs the sweet!''

Drew split from Will in 2016 after three years of marriage. 

The pair are parents to two daughters – six-year-old Olive and four-year-old Frankie.

It’s not the first time that Drew has opened up about what really goes on behind closed doors in her life.

She also posted a make-up free photo of herself crying on Instagram alongside another important message.

She wrote, ''What I propose some days are great and beautiful. Sure, I can be this with two hours of hair and makeup and amazing photography and lighting. I also feel beautiful after a sweaty workout…But it all takes work! Which is good because we can achieve it.''

She continued, ''What I can’t hide is that some days are difficult and not so pretty…But sometimes life can just get to you and take you down for a minute! But we cry and then pick ourselves up and put one foot in front of the other.''

Drew is as relatable as ever and it's a good reminder that everybody has it tough at times – so let's be kind to each other.

Flipping through the in-flight magazine to pass the time while jet setting is a right of passage for an airline passenger, but for Adam Baron, one article he came across was too, am, interesting not to share with his Twitter followers.

A profile piece on Drew Barrymore in Egypt Air’s Horus Magazine by Aida Tekla is currently going viral for it's distinct content. 

Lets look at some of the stand-out quotes, shall we? 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Drew Barrymore (@drewbarrymore) on

It starts off by introducing the actress with a specific emphasis on her love life. 

'Despite being unstable in her relationships most of her life, despite the several unsuccessful marriages and despite the busy life of stardom that dominated her life for several years; the beautiful American Hollywood actress Drew Barrymore has recently decided to temporary take an unlimited vacation to play her most crucial role as a mother…’ the magazine reads

It went on to suggest that Drew has been seeking male approval since childhood:

‘It is known that Barrymore has had over 17 relationships, engagements and marriages; psychologists believe that her behaviour is only natural since she lacked the male role model in her life after her parents’ divorce when she was only nine years old.'

‘Ever since that time, she has been subconsciously seeking attention and care from a male figure; but unfortunately things do not always go as planned and she has not yet succeeded in any relationships for various reasons.’

Okie doke… so after that stellar introduction, the magazine article goes on to discuss Barrymore's weight. 

The question reads: ‘A few years ago, after your last delivery, you gained several kilograms that even your fans accused you of being overweight and neglecting your health. However, today I see you have returned to your previous graceful body; what is your secret?’

Allegedly, Drw responds to this with a smile, and says: ‘I feel overwhelmed when someone tells me that I have regained my image and managed to lose that extra weight, especially that I felt depressed due to the significant increase in my weight after delivering Frankie.'

‘However, I find this a great opportunity to encourage every woman who is overweight to work on regaining her beauty and body, especially that it is not as hard as one may think; it is all about determination and following the appropriate diet under the supervision of a physician.’

We're not so sure about this one…

There are few things as frustrating as getting ready to go out and looking in the mirror only to find red, irritated skin that we could've sworn wasn't there a moment ago.

Well, former child actress and all-around fabulous person Drew Barrymore has the perfect hack for such situations.

The mum-of-two recently took to Instagram, saying that she had a 'giant bite or reaction on my face, right in the centre of my “try not stare” cheek'.

The director decided to take matters into her own hands, placing a chunk of aloe vera on her cheek. Aloe vera's long been known for its soothing properties, especially for sunburns.

"Then figuring I had nothing to lose, I dug out the meat of the live plant stalk, which I cut off a plant in my yard and then kept in the refrigerator to reuse, the juice you can squeeze out simply did nothing," Drew explained.

 

A post shared by Drew Barrymore (@drewbarrymore) on

"So placed a small chunk of it right on my skin," she continued, "I left it on for about 3 hours plus maybe four."

The 50 First Dates actress then enjoyed herself in the sunshine ('with loads of sun block' she clarified). 

"Just a gal doing experiments! And I noticed the piece of aloe vera meat turning red. It was actually suctioning out the red from my face," she revealed.

Now, you may not want to scroll down if you're squeamish.

The 43-year-old shared a photo of the piece of aloe vera after she'd used it and it had transformed, to say the least. But so had her skin!

"Don’t get grossed out, because I know it is, but it turned into this when it came off my face," she captioned the photo, "And I am not kidding you, my red mark on my face was NOTICEABLY lighter. And I did it again the next day, with a much milder impact.

"But in two days it was gone. I had even tried bleaching creams, and nothing was getting the red spot off my face until this natural remedy. Aloe vera live plant meat worked to extract the red." 

 

A post shared by Drew Barrymore (@drewbarrymore) on

That sounds pretty amazing! Drew was slightly incorrect, though, in saying that it had 'suctioned' the red off her skin.

"I wouldn't use the words 'suctioned out' to describe what happened to the irritation on her face," Dendy Engelman, a dermatologic surgeon at New York City's Medical Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery centre, explained to Allure.

"Aloe vera does tend to turn red and wrinkle under the sun or in dry conditions, which is what happened here."

However, its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties are renowned, Dendy notes. That may be why Drew's skin cleared up so well.

 

A post shared by Drew Barrymore (@drewbarrymore) on

It should also be kept in mind, Dendy said, that those who have sensitive skin may find that aloe vera leads to redness or irritation.

Suctioning aside, the actress took the opportunity to sing aloe vera's praises, listing its other possible uses.

"It’s also amazing for cuts, scrapes and especially burns. It’s a must have to have around. In any form. Thank you aloe vera. You continue to amaze me with your beauty and beauty secrets," Drew wrote.

Are you an aloe vera fanatic like Drew?

It's not everyday a normal human would run into Drew Barrymore in the office, but for Elaine Caffrey it's just part of the job. 

The Glasnevin native made the leap to New York last year, and now her life sounds like something out of an episode of Gossip Girl

Studying Marketing in DCU, Elaine was always a big fan of all things sports. Playing basketball for Ireland, she went on to do a Masters in Public Relations and was headhunted to Legacy, a sports and marketing company. 

Realising that she had a passion for digital marketing, Elaine did a second Masters part-time in UCD's Smurfit Business School.

“I'm so glad I did it but it was a tough slog while I was working full-time," she recalled. "It really helps that I’m a bit of a nerd though.” 

Not only did the masters help her with her career, but it also opened up another opportunity- a graduate visa to America. 

“I felt like if I don’t do it now I’ll never do it. I’d passed up an opportunity to go before, not that I’d regretted it exactly but I felt like I was being given a second chance. Everyone thought I was a bit mad. But I figured why not and threw myself into it.”

Swapping her family home where she had always lived with the unknown of New York, she took the leap and moved. 

“I did what loads of Irish do and came over with no job and no place to live. I only knew one girl from years ago. There were a lot of $1 pizza slice dinners.”

When it came to job hunting, Elaine knew exactly what she didn't want- to settle. 

"I could have gone for loads of jobs but I wanted to stick it out for a job I really wanted, something that I knew I could challenge myself in. I didn't want to be stuck in a job for the sake of it. Definitely put yourself out there and network." 

Eventually, she struck gold, a position as a digital marketing manager with French beauty management, Maesa. On a day-to-day basis, she manages the online presence exclusive beauty brands including high-profile influencers and Flower Beauty by Drew Barrymore. 

All awkwardness at meeting celebrities and mega-influncers is immediately broken by her "Irishness". 

"Usually I’m the only Irish person in the room, I'm the only one in the office. When I first met Drew I was like 'Oh My God' but as soon as I opened my mouth she was like 'you’re not from here, you’re Irish?' and that immediately broke the ice." 

The beauty influencer industry in the US was like nothing Elaine had expected. 

“It’s crazy how big the industry is here, at home everybody knows everyone else. It's a difficult industry to break into. 

“There’s a similarity between athletes and beauty influencers I didn't expect. At home, sports people are so revered. Here it’s the same, but with influencers. An influencer could have a product up on their Instagram and it could be sold out in 24 hours.”

And it's easy to see why, with their massive followings, beauty brands definitely recognise the power of influencers. 

“It’s insane how big influencers are over here. It’s so different to home. The other week we had a launch with 20 influencers and between them they had 75 million followers. When you think about the fact that Ireland has a population of 4.5 million, it’s crazy." 

But is the influencer bubble about to burst? Elaine is unsure. 

“It’s actually something we talk about quite a bit in the office. I would have thought that the influencer scene can only last another three to five years. But then one of them will go and turn it around and blow my expectations out of the water. They make incredible livings for themselves. 

“There’s so much content out there, it can feel quite overpopulated. We deal with four different agencies that manage influencers alone.

“Sometimes I didn't think it’ll last but a lot of them are now diversifying. Many of them are launching their own products or working on collaborations." 

With her "little family" of Irish and American friends, Elaine still keeps up with her favourite sports from home. 

"I said I'd never be that Irish girl, eating a fry at 9 am watching with GAA, but here we are," she laughs. "You know what they say- you're never more Irish than when you're away from home." 

It's a long way from Dublin but Elaine is taking a bite out of that big apple. 

“The pace of life over here is a million miles a minute, you can be doing something all the time. I work tougher and longer hours than I would back home the pay-off is worth it.  You put more into your work so the benefits are better, you’re learning all the time.”

Read on to see Elaine's top picks for the best foodie spots in NYC! 

Balthazar (Soho)

"It is in the heart of Soho surrounding by the best shopping spots in the city. The first time I went here was during New York Fashion Week and we were sat close to the Beckhams! The entire family was there as they came in after her show. It was a serious 'pinch me/fangirl' moment as I am slightly obsessed with Victoria!"

Gotan, TriBeCa

"My office is in TriBeCa and this place is right beside me – I love it! There is a professional vibe within the restaurant as most people are working while there so it makes catching up on emails a lot easier as they are laptop friendly with sockets on each table. Their acai bowls are incredible!"
 

Tao Uptown, Upper East Side

"I love the decor and the vibe in Tao, it’s dark and intimate and the food is delicious. The DJ plays Hip Hop and R&B throughout dinner too which gives it a unique atmosphere."

UES Scoop Shop, Upper East Side

"UES is a speakeasy bar disguised as an ice-cream parlour. Once you go in through the “refrigerator door” you enter a hidden bar that serves the most creative cocktails I've seen in NYC! It has just opened so it is still a hidden gem uptown."

If you were totally hooked to the Santa Clarita Diet, then you'll be happy to know that it's be renewed for a second season.

We're guilty of binge watching the series, which starred Drew Barrymore, and it has been confirmed that shooting for the second round will commence this summer.

The show focuses on Shelia (Drew Barrymore), a realtor, who turns into a zombie (of sorts).

Her dramatic change sees her family go through a major adjustment to a life of death and destruction… but in a good way.

After four years and two children together, Drew Barrymore has decided to officially call time on her marriage to Will Kopelman.

According to emerging reports from across the pond, the much-loved actress, who announced she was separating from her husband last April, made it official by initiating legal proceedings yesterday.

Insistent that the break-down of their marriage would not signal the dissolution of their family unit, the former couple asserted in a statement at the time: "Sadly our family is separating legally, although we do not feel this takes away from us being a family."

"Divorce might make one feel like a failure, but eventually you start to find grace in the idea that life goes on," they continued while reflecting on their relationship together.

"Our children are our universe, and we look forward to living the rest of our lives with them as the first priority," they added.

The decision to file for divorce appears to be a mutual one as reports confirm that the divorce is reportedly marked as 'uncontested' in court documents.

After a year of dating, the long-time friends tied the knot in 2012 before welcoming daughters Olive and Frankie.

Forget haphazardly throwing on your eye-liner in the morning, because according to Drew Barrymore the key to nailing the perfect smoky eye is to apply your liner before you go to bed.

While we are having visions of serious panda eyes, the Hollywood actress has said that she loves the smudged effect of her liner after a good nights sleep. 

"After I do my evening skincare routine, I line my outer lower lashes with soft-black pencil before I go to bed," the 41-year-old told Allure magazine. 

"It sounds a little crazy, but I wake up with the perfect smudgy eye makeup. I can roll out of bed, do absolutely nothing, and get compliments on my makeup."

We don't know how but somehow, she is convincing us. 

While this sounds to us like a disaster waiting to happen, we may just go ahead and give it a go. 

What's the worst that can happen? Other than destroying our pillowcases and ending up late for work obviously.

Thanksgiving Day is supposed to be a quiet time of rest and relaxation with the family.

So we can understand Drew Barrymore’s frustration when hers ended in a spot of trouble with the law!

The actress found herself slapped with ticket for jaywalking while she crossed the road after an early morning yoga class in Beverly Hills.

Of all the things to be told-off for, Drew!

The 39-year-old was seen playing with her hair nervously while a police officer took down her details, before presenting her with a fine.

It seems that Drew wasn’t quite so put out by the incident, however, as she later broke into a dance for awaiting paparazzi.

Well, that’s one way to shake off your troubles!

Drew has been a busy woman of late, having recently launched her own perfume range.

The star shared a sneak peek of the ad campaign for her scent ‘Cherished’ earlier this week, which she revealed will feature her eldest daughter, Olive.

Toni Collette has debuted her brand new shaved head – and she looks incredible!

The actress is taking on the role of a cancer patient in her upcoming movie, Miss You Already which also stars Drew Barrymore.

The movie tells the story of the two women’s friendship when Toni’s character, Milly, falls ill.

Originally, Rachel Wiesz was to play the role of the best friend, but was later replaced with Drew.

The actress' head was originally shaved completely bald, but has now grown out slightly and we have to say that Toni really rocks this look!

She normally has long slightly wavy hair but is clearly not afraid to go the whole way for a really important role like this one that will bring important issues into the spotlight.
