Cape Town – An apparent interview with Drew Barrymore in EgyptAir’s in-flight magazine is going viral for its bizarre content.

According to the Daily Mail, everything from an unflattering intro which claims the 43-year-old has been “unstable in her relationships most of her life” to the borderline insulting questions about her postpartum body following the birth of youngest daughter, Frankie had people questioning the credibility of the interview.

Political analyst Adam Baron shared screengrabs of the magazine feature, calling it “surreal”. He then tweeted Drew asking her if it is actually legit.

Following the mass reaction to the interview on social media, EgyptAir took to Twitter on Wednesday maintaining that the piece is a legitimate interview.

In response to one user, the airline said: “Dear sir, this a professional magazine interview conducted by Dr. Aida Tekla former president of the HFPA (Hollywood Foreign Press Association) and one of the voting members of the Golden Globes.”

A Twitter account claiming to be the woman who allegedly conducted the interview, Aida Takla, reiterated EgyptAir’s tweet, further explaining her case.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dr. Aida Takla-O’Reilly was president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association from 1994 to 1996 and then again for the 2012 - 2013 year.
