Drew Barrymore Doesn't Want To Act As Much After Becoming A Mum

Drew Barrymore has been famous since she was seven-years-old. So, you can't blame her for wanting to step back from the spotlight a little.


As much as it pains us to say it, the actress has revealed she's likely to "act less and less" because she wants to spend more time with her two daughters, 23-month-old Olive and six-month-old Frankie.

The 39-year-old Charlie's Angels star, who is married to Will Kopelman, told Today that she wanted her kids to be brought up completely different to how she was.

In the interview, Barrymore said: "It's hard to be present when you wake up before them and come home after they've gone to bed. That's just not the way I want to have this journey with my kids at this point in their life.

"But maybe when they're older, I will feel differently," she added. "But at this point, I think it has to be few and far between.

"I had a very untraditional upbringing, so I looked at it from afar and just thought, 'Well that's the exact opposite of how I'd want to raise my kids. But it doesn't make me bummed out that I didn't have parents. It's like, thank god that I didn't because I wouldn't be this aggressively excited about traditions and values and Christmas cards and Halloween costumes, and being so present."
