Drew Barrymore: “I Didn’t Really Have Parents.”

Rodeo Drive Walk Of Style 2012

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…

Drew Barrymore Talks Motherhood, Career and Baby Weight

Drew Barrymore & Daughter Olive Arriving On A Flight At LAX

Action shot of Drew Barrymore in her most important role: as a mom.

Drew dished to People Magazine about the nature of her life at the Refinery29 L.A. Holiday Party on Dec. 10…and it was a breath of fresh air amidst all of the Hollywood BS surrounding acting, motherhood and losing baby weight.

On putting acting aside: “The acting has to be less and less because it’s too time-consuming. I love it and I don’t want to abandon it, but it can’t be at the forefront right now.”

On Daughters Frankie and Olive: “It’s a balance of who gets the attention, and it’s a tightrope,” she shares. “But it’s also a wonderful, amazing journey to raise two kids that love each other.”

On just now starting to focus on shedding pregnancy weight: “It took nine months to build. It should take nine months to get off,” she explains. “I wanted fettuccini alfredo. I didn’t want a barbell.”

Barrymore adds, “I was like, ‘Don’t talk to me about how fast and fabulous you are or it came off. That was not my experience. I’m having to work my ass off until I even think about getting it off.”

Cameron Diaz cuts off phone interview after Drew Barrymore drug jab

Cameron Diaz cuts off phone interview after Drew Barrymore drug jab

If you know anything about Cameron Diaz, then you know how protective she is of her best friend Drew Barrymore along with her personal life in general. So, it didn’t really come as a shock when Cameron decided to call time on a radio interview when the host started babbling about Drew’s former addiction issues.

Cameron and Jason Segel have been in the middle of promoting their new movie “Sex Tape” and called into KIIS 106.5’s “Kyle & Jackie O” radio show.

Jackie O. mentioned that Giselle Eisenberg reminded her of Drew in “E.T.” To that, Cameron said, “Aw yeah! She does, now that you mention it. And she’s as bright and lively as Drew is, as well. She’s a sweet little girl.”

That’s when Kyle chirped in, “Let’s hope she misses out on the Drew Barrymore drug years, because those were a great thing to watch, but not so good to be in, I’d imagine.”

Not skipping a beat, Cameron retorted, “I’m sure, Kyle, you’ve never been through a drug phase, have you? Or alcoholism or anything like that? Pretty clean; always did it right? Congratulations.”

When the radio host attempted to bring up the topic of Cameron’s new relationship with Benji Madden, Cam said, “We’re having to go now. Sorry, they’re wrapping us up.”

Can you blame her?
