We were very excited to discover Drew Barrymore was Marie Claire's cover girl for February 2014. However, the real excitement came upon opening a sneak preview of the photoshoot within. Squeals of excitement came from the office upon discovering that Drew Barrymore was wearing our favourite piece from Christopher Kane's Spring Summer 2014 collection. Let's just stop here and show you the picture from the show...
Now that we have that out of the way, here's a sneaky look at Drew Barrymore's interview with Marie Claire for February 2014.
On her childhood and teenage years: “When I was a kid, everything was so unplanned, my parents were so erratic, and my world was so inconsistent…I was 14 when I moved into my own apartment. I was so scared. I didn’t know anything. I didn’t know you had to throw food out when it rotted in the fridge. I was convinced someone was going to crawl through my window. I would go to the Laundromat and sit there reading Anne Sexton, Sylvia Plath.”
On growing up without a family and her loyalty to her friends, including Cameron Diaz: “I hated growing up alone. I hated it…I don’t f*ck anyone over. My friends are the loves my life.”
On her relationship with her mother, Jaid Barrymore: “Ugh, I mean, my relationship with my mom is so complicated that…I’ve always been empathetic toward my mom, and I was even more so when I had a kid and we had a really amazing conversation about it. However, it hasn’t enabled me to lessen the distance. It’s the hardest subject in my life. I’ve never just been angry with her. I’ve always felt guilt and empathy and utter sensitivity. But we can’t really be in each other’s lives at this point.”
On marrying into the Kopelman family: “I didn’t think I would ever get to experience that. This is so safe and positive and healthy because they have their values intact. It was huge for me. And that’s what I want for my family.”
On the modern world: “I’m so weary of the modern world. I’m not really of this era, so I’m struggling with that…I don’t want to talk about sex anymore. I used to be so open. But now people are like, ‘Let’s explore our sexuality!’ And I’m like, ‘Let’s not!’ I’m such a prude these days.”
On baby #3? “I think I’d like to have more. In the back of my head, I’m already timing if I was to have another when that would occur.”
On David Sedaris: “He is my absolute favorite ever. If I saw him in person, I’d freeze and say nothing. And then I’d say too much. I’d be a crazy person. And probably vomit. And pee on myself. I’ve never downloaded a book, and I never will. If you want to buy a book, buy a fucking book.”
