Drew Barrymore Covers the February Issue of Marie Claire
Drew Barrymore once again covers Marie Claire. And she looks doing so. In the latest issue she chats about sex, growing up alone, her family, and so much more. Here are some choice quotes from the spread.
On growing up in Hollywood: “When I was a kid, everything was so unplanned, my parents were so erratic, and my world was so inconsistent . . . I was 14 when I moved into my own apartment. I was so scared. I didn’t know anything. I didn’t know you had to throw food out when it rotted in the fridge. I was convinced someone was going to crawl through my window. I would go to the Laundromat and sit there reading Anne Sexton, Sylvia Plath.”
On her relationship with her mother, Jaid Barrymore: “Ugh, I mean, my relationship with my mom is so complicated that…I’ve always been empathetic toward my mom, and I was even more so when I had a kid and we had a really amazing conversation about it. However, it hasn’t enabled me to lessen the distance. It’s the hardest subject in my life. I’ve never just been angry with her. I’ve always felt guilt and empathy and utter sensitivity. But we can’t really be in each other’s lives at this point.”
On her strained relationship with her family: “I don’t know anybody in my family of origin. The other day someone asked me what my mother’s mother’s name was, and I was like, ‘No idea.”
On marrying into the Kopelman family: “I didn’t think I would ever get to experience that. This is so safe and positive and healthy because they have their values intact. It was huge for me. And that’s what I want for my family.”
