Drew Barrymore Is InStyle Magazine’s September Cover Girl!

Drew looks gorgeous in these photos, she just looks better the older she gets.


A brief excerpt from the Drew Barrymore cover story, “A Real-Life Fairy Tale” by Ariel Foxman, which  appears in InStyle’s September 2013 issue.

ARIEL FOXMAN: Olive is a year old now. What types of things are you experiencing with her now?

DREW BARRYMORE: Yesterday I took her to the Guggenheim Museum, and these two little girls were dancing in front of a light installation. They were about 7 years old, and Olive just loves kids. We put her on the floor, and you could see how much she wanted to play with them. I had this weird mix of emotions. I was so proud of my daughter that she was giving of herself, and I began remembering those moments when as a child, you’re like, “I wanna play! I wanna play!” And the other kids are like, “Not now, kid. Beat it!”

AF: “Step aside!”

DB: I was like, “Oh my god, this what being a parent is.” It’s a lot of pride and a lot of nervousness.

AF: Are you an anxious parent?

DB: I love the person who said, “Parenting is like wearing your heart on the outside of your body.” It’s the most beautiful, perfect analogy. I have anxieties about how much I’d like to get it right, making sure I provide her with an environment that’s safe, nurturing, and loving. And silly and free, also consistent and grounding. Then I just have the same typical fear every other parent has: Are they going to fall down?

AF: Is your husband, Will, very calm?

DB: Will and I are a nice balance of opposition and similarities. He always says, “being calm is so important.” Because I tend to be not calm. I probably act more like a chicken with its head cut off! But I can also be very strong. I’m entering my 40s, and now I get to step back and take these incredible, extraordinary life experiences and life lesson and apply them to being a parent.

AF: What are the most important lessons you have learned?

DB: Nothing comes for free. Life does not provide you with an easy ride. You have to face really deep internal and sometimes external challenges. It’s so humbling. Not to take away from the really big obstacles everybody faces, but I’ve also learned you just have realize how ridiculous certain things can be.

Drew Barrymore lands the cover of C Magazine, looks amazing!

The gorgeous Drew Barrymore lands the summer 2013 issue of California Style Magazine. I think this is one of the better photo shoots I’ve ever seen of Drew. She just looks so great. Better than ever!

In the interview Drew opens up about her life with husband Will Kopelman and more.

She’s so lucky: “I won the in-laws jackpot. It might be the best karma for having one of the wackiest upbringings. I never had dinner with my mom or dad, let alone together. It’s amazing to think that in life you can completely have a do-over.”

Kopelman enlightened her: “I told him, ‘Dining rooms are stupid. They shouldn’t exist. When was the last time we had a dinner party?’ Family dinners would never have occurred to me, and that’s what I want most. Now it’s my life mission to figure out this room.”

She’s highly likable – don’t you agree?

Drew Barrymore cooks with Chef Eric Ripert, and discusses life & wine!

Drew Barrymore sat down with French chef Eric Ripert’s cooking show, On The Table, for a new interview. She was on the program to promote her new wine, Barrymore Pinto Grigio, which apparently has earned mixed reviews. While cooking “Clams Monetecito,” she discussed her life and career with Chef Eric.

On being moody:I think I’m moody because I’m a woman, and I can ask any man in this room like, you know woman are just inherently like, moodier and hormonal people. I don’t know how men deal with it. I praise them.

On her childhood and school: It was really hard. I wasn’t really popular in school either. I was in and out of school all the time because I would be on set. But I had fun, I got to go to Studio 54. It’s not how I would ever raise my kid, but I’ll never regret the experiences I had.

On growing up: I had 17 different lives, I’m like a cat who has had several lives, and now I’m like a stay at home mom and you know kind of subdued. But you kind of find yourself along the way, and I’ve had these incredible crash courses on radically different lives and I now know as a 38 year old woman which one I would choose. Nobody gets a free ride.

On Abe Lincoln and religion: I’m very tough on myself, but I’m obsessed with the Abe Lincoln quote right now, “If I do good, I feel good. If I do bad, I feel bad”. That is my religion.

Drew Barrymore graces the March cover of Harper’s Bazaar!

Drew Barrymore graces Harper’s BAZAAR’s March cover, which marks the biggest March issue ever in the magazine’s 146 year history, and inside, she talks about her daughter, Olive, her career, her makeup line, and more.

When she first found out she was pregnant, Barrymore put her film roles on hold and searched for ways to work that didn’t involve being in a trailer, “living someone else’s life through a character. I didn’t feel I could do a lot with fashion because I wear sweatpants that I find on the floor,” she adds. “I live for makeup and I like wine. These are my truths!”

On keeping the details of her daughter’s birth under wraps: “I definitely needed some time,” she recalls. “For a solid six weeks, I was hiding like the Unabomber. Because I live my life in the public eye, I didn’t want that for her. But ultimately she realized that “unless I move into a bunker underground, I don’t have a choice in this matter. It was something that took me weeks to cope with.”

“I know she didn’t sign up for that,” she says about Olive’s being born into the glare of attention that comes with her mother’s 30-plus years of fame. “I had such an exposed childhood,” she says. “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.”

For her successful LashBlast Mascara commercials, Barrymore’s mission was, as it is now, to help women feel good about themselves. “I grew up in a makeup chair,” she says. “And to see the women around me getting ready was so aspirational. It’s about mothers and daughters, a girl watching her mom at a vanity table. I didn’t want a cold campaign with severe messaging. I wanted warmth and acceptance and self-love.”

She wants to apply that same fresh, approachable aesthetic to her makeup line, Flower. “Nobody’s in gold rain or running through a jungle with their lipstick on,” she says. “It was just me and some great music on a white background. That’s every girl, in her closet getting ready.”
