Drew Barrymore to 'InStyle': I Want More Kids!
Here is what the 38-year-old actress had to share with the mag:
On growing her family: “I was an only child, and it was lonely. Some people love it and thrive on the independence, but I want my kids to have other kids around. Maybe two kids so they can run around life together, roll their eyes at their parents together like Rusty and Audrey Griswold from [National Lampoon’s] Vacation. So however that’s going to come about, it’s gonna happen!”
On her husband, Will Kopelman, and entering her 40s: “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 lessons and apply them to being a parent.”
On parenting: “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 [Olive] 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?”
FYI: Drew is wearing a Marc Jacobs shirt and skirt, Chanel earrings and bracelet, Bulgari bracelets, a Meredith Wendell belt, and her own rings.
