Yes, the big news is that Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman are getting divorced…but when you’re Drew, who you gonna call for marital counsel? Steven Friggin’ Spielberg, that’s who.
The actress talked to some reporter from Popsugar about her life very vaguely, and I guess also about wine (the interview was originally supposed to be strictly wine). Still, when this big of news hits ya, you gotta talk it out (even with randos, while sitting with wine). So Popsugar got some inside info about Drew’s breakup, over a glass of Rose. Here are the highlights:
On the strength of her daughter Olive:“That’s how my daughter is. She doesn’t want the worry. She needs to know it’s going to be OK. It’s the only way she will allow herself to be vulnerable. . . . She’s mad when something hurts her. She doesn’t go to a weak place. Every little girl can only be made to feel safe if they know the parent is solid.”
On her life’s mission:“The only thing I care about, my life’s mission and the only thing that matters as of now is that my daughters know what our lives were like, how we lived, and how much I love them. For them to know that they were not just loved, but, like, ridiculously, utterly, life-alteringly loved. That’s the only reason I’m here now!”
On maybe calling Steven Spielberg:“I had a really hard time a couple of months ago and kind of knew life was heading in a new direction. I called someone that I really trust, respect, and believe in, because he has always been the conductor of grace. I said, ‘What’s your advice?’ And he said, ‘You put one foot in front of the other.’ I hung up the phone and I thought, ‘That is why I call this person.’ It’s not only succinct, but it’s almost physically productive and life-choice productive. It’s just great advice. It’s a kind of way in which to live, and I want to be like him. I want to be like that. I want to put one foot in front of the other.”
See? Totally Spielberg, right? Totally a conductor of grace. If you think it’s somebody else, sound off in the comments below. Heck, if you agree, do the same…
