“You know, I don’t even know if it’s still there, but it happened in the beginning of my career, my characters died,” she told Barrymore. “I was like, ‘Wait a minute, if I keep dyin’ in these movies, I can’t do a sequel.’ I was like, ‘No! We gotta put a no death clause in my contract,’” she laughed.

“We threw it in there and there was a little, you know, off the cuff funny but I was like, ‘No more dying! No more getting shot up by 300 bullets in this car, OK?’”
