If there’s anything that ticks off Drew Barrymore, it’s being called a celebrity. The Charlie’s Angels actress, who has spent her whole life in the public eye, revealed her scorn for the “reductive” word .

“Celebrity! It’s become the most disgusting word on the planet. It makes me sick to my stomach,” The Guardian quoted her as saying.

She said, “Now when someone calls me a celebrity, I want to shoot them. I want to go, thank you for reducing me — I’ve worked for 35 years, I’ve killed myself to be established as someone reliable and accountable, yet you’re calling me someone who got famous for no reason.
