Drew Barrymore proves she is a VIP by landing in New York City by private helicopter as she models rose-tinted sunglasses and a fun knit cap

Drew Barrymore proved she is a full-fledged VIP by flying into the Big Apple by helicopter on Sunday.

The 44-year-old actress was bundled up against the drizzle and cold weather as she left Blade.

But the Charlie's Angels actress stayed chic as she wore a pastel colored knit cap with rose-tinted glasses.

The 50 First Dates star covered up in a long, wool trench coat that she clutched around her chest.

The mother-of-two also donned black leggings and cozy UGG-style boots to keep her toes warm.

Drew is set to headline a syndicated talk show for CBS, which is aiming for a fall 2020 launch.

The E.T. star shot a pilot in August, and the series is to be produced and distributed by CBS Television Distribution, according to Variety.

'It is beyond my wildest dreams to have this opportunity for a daily talk show,' the mom-of-two said in a statement at the time.

'I’m truly thrilled and honored to be creating this show with CBS.'

Drew's long acting career kicked off with an uncredited part in Suddenly Love in 1978 before she found very early fame in E.T: The Extraterrestrial in 1982 when she was just seven.

She has been moving to the other side of the camera as a director and producer in recent years.

Meanwhile, Drew is also mom to her two daughters Olive, seven, and Frankie, five, whom she shares with ex-husband Will Kopelman, 41.

She and the art consultant got engaged in January 2012 and married on June 2, 2012, in Montecito, north of Los Angeles.

They split in on April 2, 2016 and their divorce came through on August 3, 2016 but they have remained friendly exes for the sake of their girls.
