Drew Barrymore Says Writing a Book Was on Her Bucket List

Drew Barrymore Says Writing a Book Was on Her Bucket List

Drew Barrymore looks stunning on the new Memorial Day issue of Hamptons magazine.

Here’s what the 41-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On her new Netflix series Santa Clarita Diet: “[The new show] is crazy and exciting. I haven’t worked very much so that I could raise my children. It feels fresh to go back to something I’ve known for so long. It’s funny how you can make it new again.”

On her book Wildflower: “Bucket list checked! I have always wanted to write a book, since I was 7, but timing is everything. I simply never had the perspective I do now, let alone a life experience that would give me the material and the objectivity to my life. It was one of the most fluid and personal things I have ever done.”

On when her passion for wine began: “I first started making wine out of Italy about eight years ago, and it was a wonderful learning experience. My first wine that I fell in love with was Pinot Grigio, so to spend time in the venue and the places where some of the finest Pinot is grown and made was an incredible education for me. Then Jackson Family Wines launched our California Pinot a few years ago, and I was able to apply all of that knowledge to our American foray.”
