Drew Barrymore is a dedicated mom and it seems that the star wants to make sure that she will be a great parent. Drew Barrymore decided to talk about motherhood just a few weeks after it has been revealed that she and her husband Will Kopelman decided to put an end to their marriage.
“I’m an overachiever parent, and not because I think I’m going to repeat the patterns of my parents,” the star said during her recent interview with Good Housekeeping. “I’ve already broken that pattern in my life,” the popular actress went on to add. “But having grown up in the opposite way, I’m raising my children with all consistency, all protection. This is my chance to get it right,” Drew concluded.
The popular Hollywood star has two children from her marriage to Will, daughters Olive and Frankie. During her interview, the actress also explained that until she became a mom she thought she knew what love was, but she actually had no idea. “I thought I knew what love was, but holy cow, I did not,” the star revealed. “I could never have imagined the kind of love I have for my children. I am who I am because of my daughters.”
The actress also decided to talk about the moments when she and Will started to date and became involved in a relationship. “I don’t think there was one moment when I knew I wanted to spend my life with Will,” the beautiful actress revealed. “It was a sweeping, fluid process. It was falling in love with his family, being ready to have a family of my own and thinking if I had a family with this family, it would be really wonderful. Sometimes there’s just a time to go for it with a good person.”
During her interview, Drew also claimed that she would never let her daughters become child actors. Drew grew up in the spotlight and it just seems that this is not what she wants for her children. The actress also revealed that one of her best and most loyal friends is famous actress Cameron Diaz, whom she relies on for support.
