Chanel fuss is just a frock says Drew Barrymore

Drew Barrymore

Drew Barrymore was in very fine form at the Hollywood premiere of the new animated kiddy flick, "Curious George," wearing a cap-sleeved, portrait neckline black dress and a tiny gold heart bracelet and necklace.

Uncharacteristically, she even talked about fashion and how silly she thought everyone was acting over Globe-winner Reese Witherspoon's Chanel frock that was previously worn by Kirsten Dunst at a Globes post party back in 2003.

"You gotta be able to laugh at yourself," said Barrymore.

The actress, who sent up the brouhaha about her being braless at the Globes by wearing fake droopy breasts on "Saturday Night Live" the weekend after the awards show, seemed happy that people at the "George" premiere at Hollywood's ArcLight Cinemas were more interested in her voice role. She's the perky voice of a schoolteacher romantically interested in the Man in the Yellow Hat (Will Ferrell) who owns George the monkey.

But for the record, "I'm wearing Celine," boasted Barrymore. "And a bra!" she added with a giggle, as she ran over to hug Ferrell at the after-party.

OK, you gotta love this girl.
