Drew Barrymore Breaks Down At A Charity Event Following Her Difficult Divorce News — But What Made Her Cry??
Drew Barrymore has a lot of feelings right now!
Just a week or two after making the decision to split from husband Will Kopelman, the actress shed some tears at a fundraiser for the New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. The important cause is very near and dear to Drew's heart.
At the annual spring luncheon, Barrymore took the stage to read an excerpt from her book Wildflower titled Africa. The selected portion recalled D.B.'s time working in the AIDS-torn country and her time spent with infected children.
Before reading the emotional passage, the beauty confided to the audience:
"If I break down during this story, you will understand, I will just turn it into laughter and you men will think we're crazy. We are, but it's that craziness that actually evolves into compassion, and that's what's so beautiful about women."
Aw! We just love how Drew is always so open with her deep emotions!
Naturally, the momma of two stayed true to her words as she tearfully described interacting with a sick little girl she had financially supported prior to the transformative trip.
Considering Barrymore was so emotional while reading, we're not surprised she SKIPPED over the paragraphs which mentioned Will.
Despite the intensity of the day, it appears the beauty still managed to have a great experience:
You're going to want to set your DVRs for this one, Perezcious readers!
Not only will Drew Barrymore be making a super-rare television appearance, but she'll also be doing it on Odd Mom Out, the show that was created by and stars the sister of her estranged husband, Will Kopelman.
The 41-year-old's soon-to-be former sister-in-law Jill Kargman revealed on Monday that the 50 First Dates alum will be guest starring on the Bravo show's second season, saying:
Drew Barrymore Hints She Wasn't Positive Will Kopelman Was The One In A Pre-Split Interview With Good Housekeeping!
Did Drew Barrymore drop hints about her impending split with Will Kopelman?
For the May issue of Good Housekeeping, the Charlie's Angels alum opened up about her personal discontent in life and even noted that she didn't believe her estranged husband was the one. Oh man!
While the interview dropped mere days after the A-lister announced her breakup with the art dealer, the sit down with the publication took place before the couple revealed they were looking to separate. Sneaky, sneaky!
In her candid one on one, Drew admitted:
"Yesterday I was a 10, tomorrow I might be an 8, this afternoon I might be a 3 and tonight I might be an 11. I just have a lot on my plate right now, and it's hard to figure out the puzzle pieces for the next year of my life…Oh, just work-wise, geography-wise, life-wise."
Wow. Not to mention, now that we know about the twosome's changed relationship status, the author's explanation of falling for Will rings sadder than we think was intended.
The 41 year old relayed:
OMG this is too cute!
The cure? A little mother-daughter bonding!
The 41-year-old actress took her eldest baby girl Olive — dressed in an adorable Elsa from Frozen costume — to a yoga class on Wednesday, and the results were absolutely adorable!
Miz Barrymore captioned the photo of her looking lovingly at the three-year-old mid-pose saying:
"Princess Elsa came to our mother daughter yoga class. #magicdays #iloveolive"
We're sure 23-month-old Frankie will get plenty of mommy-daughter yoga time when she's a little older!
Happy to see the author keeping her children a number one priority amid the split!

For the kids!
As we've reported, Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman are divorcing after almost four years of marriage — and despite any differences between the two, they continue to agree on putting their children first. The duo shares two daughters Olive, 3, and Frankie, 23 months.
Insiders of the couple do not anticipate a crazy custody battle as the details of the split continue to be worked out.
A family source tells People:
"They fundamentally agree on everything when it comes to their girls."
The source adds that NYC will stay the fam's home base — as Olive is enrolled in preschool there for the foreseeable future.
As you recall, the former pair echoed this same sentiment in their public statement:
"Our children are our universe, and we look forward to living the rest of our lives with them as the first priority."
That's good to hear!

Drew Barrymore Reportedly 'Feels Like A Failure' Amid Divorce From Will Kopelman — 'They Both Expected To Be Together Forever'
The word "failure" is being brought up once again in midst of Drew Barrymore's divorce from Will Kopelman.
We reported last week that fans were stunned when it was announced the 41-year-old actress was divorcing her husband of nearly four years. The duo shares two daughters Olive, 3, and Frankie, 23 months.
In a joint statement, the former couple said the split "might make one feel like a failure, but eventually you start to find grace in the idea that life goes on."
A new source tells Us Weekly the couple's decision to separate left Miz Barrymore — who's been married twice in the past — feeling "like a failure." The already two-time divorcée was married to bar owner Jeremy Thomas for two months when she was 19, followed by a five-month stint with comedian Tom Green in 2011.
Another insider adds:
Drew Barrymore Was Finally Part Of A 'Real Family' While She Was Married To Will Kopelman! Get A Glimpse Into Their Life Together!
It's no secret that Drew Barrymore had a troublesome childhood.
The E.T. alum was drinking and clubbing as a pre-teen, and living on her own before she could legally drive a car. But when she fell in love with Will Kopelman, a source says she was finally part of a stable family, something she didn't really have growing up.
The insider explained to People:
"The Kopelmans immediately seemed to like Drew. They quickly embraced her and acted like they really cared about her. Drew seemed very happy about being a big part of Will's family. It was like, for the first time, she had a real family. Drew spent time with Will's mom Coco over lunch and yoga. Drew and Will often had dinner with his parents in L.A."
That sounds so wonderful! But it's also making us really upset that the gorgeous gal and her longtime love have recently filed for divorce.
However if it's not meant to be, then it's just not meant to be.
But as they said in their joint statement about the split, the actress and her now-estranged husband are still going to make their children their number one priority.
And even though the precious parents are parting ways, the exes are going to do their best to raise their little ones in a stable environment.
We hope everything works out for the best interests of everyone involved!
