Drew Barrymore eager to be better mum
DREW Barrymore is eager to be a better mother than her own and believes she learnt a lot about motherhood from her turbulent childhood.
The ‘He’s Just Not That Into You’ star – who is married to Will Kopelman and gave birth to their first daughter Olive three months ago – has revealed she learned a lot about the kind of mother she wants to be from the difficult relationship she had with her own mother Jaid Barrymore and wants her daughter to always know she will be there for her.
She told Oprah Winfrey’s ‘Oprah’s Next Chapter’ in a new episode that is to be aired on OWN on Sunday: “I will be there at 3pm in the school line waiting to pick her up, that’s first and foremost.”
In the emotional interview, the 37-year-old actress explained that broken promises are what upset her most growing up.
She said: “I think thats as a kid ,what I craved the most, was just believing that there was going to be someone there. Being there in that school line. I think the world offers so many wonderful varieties of obstacles but that shouldn’t be one for kids – is the worry that my parent won’t be there.”
The actress always wants to be honest with her daughter and revealed she has already planned what to tell her about her own wild youth.BANG!
