‘I mean, same thing with you,’ she said, comparing her and Britney’s early experiences to Drew’s work as an in-demand child actress on films like ET and Firestarter. ‘I see the scramble for words, and I don’t know her, but, when I look at pictures of her, I feel like I could tell her story in the right way.
‘And hers only,’ she added.
