Drew Barrymore Writing A Book About Her Life

"Blended" - Los Angeles Premiere

It’s widely known that Drew Barrymore has led an interesting, if often tumultuous, life.  The Fifty First Dates actress shared today that she’ll be releasing a book about her life.  While it’ll get personal, it won’t be a traditional memoir.  Drew’s book will be a collection of autobiographical essays instead.

Drew shared, “I love stories that are humorous, emotional and welcoming, and that is my goal in writing this book.”

Publisher Dutton shared that the stories will be about Drew, “living on her own at 14 (and how laundry may have saved her life), getting stuck in a gas station overhang on a cross-country road trip, saying goodbye to her father in a way only he could have understood, and many more adventures and lessons that have led to the most important thing in her life, which is motherhood.”

So far there’s no release date for the book.

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.”
