We miss Drew. She needs to come back into our lives. And by that we mean she needs to make more public appearances so we can talk about her.
Drew Barrymore covers the September 2013 issue of InStyle magazine photographed by Michelangelo Di Battista. On the cover: Marc Jacobs shirt and skirt, Chanel earrings and bracelet, Bulgari bracelets, Meredith Wendell belt, her own rings.
Yes, it’s a very digitally enhanced Drew, but she looks fabulous. Love the entire look on her.
On her husband, Will Kopelman, and turning 40: “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?”
On the most important lesson she’s learned: “Nothing comes for free. Life does not provide you with an easy ride. You have to face really deep internal and sometimes external challenges. It’s so humbling. Not to take away from the really big obstacles everybody faces, but I’ve also learned you just have realize how ridiculous certain things can be.”
Show of hands: how many of you felt your hearts drop when you read Drew Barrymore say, “I’m entering my 40s now…?”
