Even Drew Barrymore loves the D
I always thought she was a nice girl. While promoting her new film, which was filmed in Detroit, our dear Drew and Whip It co-star Ellen Page said the following:
"I saw a lot of the state. I actually know it quite well," Barrymore said while at the Toronto International Film Festival for the film's premiere. "On Saturday nights, I would go to the 8 Ball in Ann Arbor and have a cold PBR (Pabst Blue Ribbon) and I loved that. I loved the Majestic in Detroit.
"It was great for me because I really found locations that would work. I found wonderful places," Barrymore said. "I felt like it was a blessing we got to shoot there."
At the festival Page was, if anything, even more enthusiastic about the state.
"From the bottom of my heart, I absolutely loved it, and I say this all the time. I loved Detroit... I love Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti," she said. "On Labor Day, I went up to northern Michigan to go hiking. All over Detroit, you drive 15-20 minutes and there's some awesome place to hike.
"I'd live there in a second," Page said. "I'd go shoot there in a second; I'd encourage a film to go shoot there."
