It hasn’t been an easy or normal life for Drew Barrymore. She was thrown into the entertainment world at a very young age. You may remember she played the adorable little Gertie in Steven Spielberg’s ‘E.T.’ However, she quickly fell into bad habits at a very young age. She started smoking cigarettes when she turned 9-years-old, started drinking when she was 11, started smoking pot when she was 12 and began to snort cocaine when she was just 13! She ended up going to rehab twice and she even attempted suicide.
However, that was then and this is now. Drew Barrymore managed to make it through the storm and now she is finally finding that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. The 38-year-old covered C magazine recently and talked to the magazine about her life. She talked about how happy she is in her marriage and how she feels like she has the best in-laws…
“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.”
One of the most endearing parts of the interview came when Drew Barrymore shared a recent conversation she had with her husband about their dining room. “Dining rooms are stupid.” she told her husband. She thought the only use for them was to have dinner parties, but she knew they were not the dinner party type.
However, her husband mentioned that they can use the dining room for private family meals. And that is when Drew started to cry, “Family dinners would have never occurred to me, and that’s what I want most. Now it’s my life mission to figure out this room.” she told the magazine.
It’s nice to see that her life is on the right track now.
