Drew Barrymore plans to raise her daughter Olive as Jewish and probably will convert to the faith herself. Appearing on ABC's "The View" on Friday, Barrymore, 37, told the ladies that her daughter would be following the faith of her father, Will Kopelman. The couple married at her Montecito estate last June and delivered their baby girl last September. "He's a nice Jewish man from a nice Jewish family," Barrymore said giddily of her 35-year-old husband. "I'm a shiksa . I do the seders, and we do Passover.

There's no sense of inevitability and little grace to the inept, amateurish psychological thriller "Inevitable Grace" (Monica 4-Plex, Sunset 5). Like countless films by novices, it's so overwhelmingly inspired by other movies that there's not a whiff of real life anywhere in it. Stephanie Knights, who is pretty but has little discernible acting ability, makes her screen debut in a role that would tax the abilities of Meryl Streep.

One minute, a pixie-like Drew Barrymore is hunched over her iced tea at a sidewalk table at Pete's Tavern. The next, her faded brown T-shirt is up around her ears. The cherubic 7-year-old from "E.T.," now 20, is flashing her unencumbered bosom to her lunch guest (in addition to restaurant patrons, pedestrians and motorists who happen to be passing). She's demonstrating exactly how easy it was to bare her breasts for David Letterman on national television a few weeks back.

In 1991, Quay Hays did the ridiculous. He quit his job and started a book company, although he had no publishing experience, few contacts, little financial backing and 3,000 miles between himself and virtually everyone in the business. Today, Hays' Santa Monica-based General Publishing Group has delivered bestsellers such as "Playboy: 40 Years," which has sold more than 200,000 copies at $45 apiece, and "All My Children: The Complete Family Scrapbook," which reached No.

Five minutes into our meeting, Drew Barrymore starts telling me about her watch. It's bright blue--plastic, of course, since Barrymore is an ardent vegetarian and won't wear leather--and was a promotional item from the company that makes "Otter Pops." * "Otter Pops," she says politely, because Barrymore is the kind of person who will say "bless you" when anyone within earshot sneezes.
