The 38-year-old superstar interviewed with Harper’s Bazaar. She gave birth to her daughter, Olive, in October. Drew is appreciative of the career she chose but doesn’t want the same thing for her daughter.
I had such an exposed childhood. I appreciate my journey but I don’t want that for my kid. Not any of it. It has nothing to do with whether I liked my childhood. I really did. But as a parent, that isn’t the childhood that I’d provide.
Barrymore would like to see her daughter take over the new makeup line, “Flower,” with Wal-Mart.
It was very romantic for me to make this while she was growing inside me. I like the multigenerational-family aspect, in the vein of a Lauder – if we’re so lucky that it stays around that long. She may want to be a food stylist, a mathematician, a scientist who will save us all. I just know that the family part really appeals to me.
In between her hours of being a mother and shooting films, Barrymore has taken up the art of dyeing leggings.
By no means am I saying that I’m never going to act again. It’s just that I’m having so much fun, dyeing crazy leggings in those weird pockets of time when I’m waiting for my daughter to wake up so I can be a mom.
Drew’s full interview will be available in newsstands on February 12.
