Twenty years ago, Charlie’s Angels jumped from the small screen to the big screen with some help from Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu. The McG movie ended up spawning a sequel, as well as some friendships that would last a lifetime. In fact all three former Angels recently caught up for Drew Barrymore’s new talk show, reflecting on what has kept them together in the 20 years since Charlie’s Angels hit the big screen.
It sounds as if Drew Barrymore still keeps up with both Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu on the regular. She’s revealed previously that she got to meet Diaz and Benji Madden’s baby Raddix after her birth late last year. But it’s not just during the “big moments” that she keeps up with the other Angels. When they reunited for her new talk show, she noted:
The thing I love about our friendship is that we have been there in all the big and important moments. We’ve also been there in the small moments and the casual moments, and the reason we are such good friends is because it’s real and we go through real stuff with each other. It’s not a Hollywood fairy-tale.
Lucy Liu called Charlie’s Angels the “touchpoint” for what came after, which I think is an apt comparison and Cameron Diaz expanded on that further, noting,
There’s no aspect of life that’s an actual Hollywood fairytale. That’s why it’s a Hollywood fairytale because it doesn’t exist. It’s aspirational; it’s hopeful. But life is constantly full of twists and turns and all of those things that happen over a lifetime. Twenty years is a long time, y’all. I’m two years away from 50. That’s nearly half my life. We have Charlie’s Angels as our sort of backdrop that brought us together but then we get to fill in life together in real moments.
