Drew Barrymore Gets Candid About Past Drug Use & How Cocaine Is Her 'Worst Nightmare Right Now'

Drew Barrymore makes an appearance on Netflix’s Norm Macdonald Has a Show‘s latest episode, where she was asked about her past drug use.

“Didn’t you miss cocaine?” Norm asked.

“No. Oh God, I mean, it’s been a very long time, but no. Nothing would make me have a panic attack and seem like a bigger nightmare. I never did hallucinogenics…but I drink and I enjoy my life and I like get out of my own head. It’s not like I’m this militant person of clarity and presence but [cocaine] literally seems like my worst nightmare right now,” Drew responded.

Drew continued, “I’ve never done heroin, so I don’t know what that’s like—I think I liked to feel good. I’m an upper person…You know, I’m like ‘Woo hoo!’…I also didn’t want to be like, ‘Man I see s–t. Again, I’d be like [screams]. I will not drink my drink at a bar if it has not been in my, like, vision, or, like, the side cornea.”

If you don’t know, Drew went to rehab at age 13.

“It really is a recipe for disaster,” she said of being a child star. “But you know what’s exciting? I got my s–t over with by like, 14—like, midlife crisis, you know, institutionalized, blacklisted, no family, like, got it done—and then got into the cycle of being my own parent.”

    It’s quite amazing how she turned out today given the life she led as a child and teenager. Draw very easily could have ended up dead from an overdose. She turned her life around on her own and now has the family she desperately craved as a child. Obviously, I don’t know her personally but she comes across as being a genuinely nice person.
