Bold words, Drew Barrymore! But, you know, we hear ya.
In an interview in More magazine’s February issue, the actress credits her difficult childhood with teaching her to be a better mother. Here are some musings and snippets of the interview, via People Magazine…
On her lack of parenting: “I didn’t really have parents, you know?” Barrymore, 39, says. “And therefore the kind of parent I will be is a good, present parent. In a way, maybe that was a detriment to my youth, but it’ll be the biggest asset to my adulthood.”
On working outside of entertainment: “I love the beauty industry because even on a workday I can wake up with my kids, go to work, come home, bedtime — there’s a normal life there,” the founder of Flower cosmetics explains.
On making time to be a good parent: “And it’s exciting when you have to go on a business trip, as opposed to a film where you’re gone for months. I can’t do that right now. As you add more onto your plate, particularly family, things have to fall off, or you won’t be a good parent.”
A s you know, Barrymore is a mom to Olive, 2, and Frankie, 9 months and has made them her priority. You gotta, when you’re a parent. A GOOD one, anyway…
