Drew Barrymore is still in disbelief she got the chance to appear on the cover of VOGUE - because she always saw herself as too short and voluptuous for the role.

The CHARLIE'S ANGELS star posed for esteemed photographer Annie Leibovitz in rose gardens, elegant dining rooms and on horseback at a sprawling estate in Hillsborough, New Jersey.

She also donned a stunning gown to pose with a lion for the cover of the magazine's latest edition, and she remains thrilled at having had the opportunity.

She enthuses, "I'm so excited! You don't understand: I'm five foot, four inches - and I eat macaroni and cheese!"
