From working with directors, to working with diapers.
In a recent interview with The Times, Drew Barrymore was promoting her new film Miss You Already where she announced this may be her last one for a while.
But why is the 40-year-old putting her career on hold?
To focus on being a mother to her two daughters: three-year-old Olive and 17-month-old Frankie!
The 50 First Dates actress explains:
“My whole universe revolves around my children, and the hours keep me away from them too much├óΓé¼┬ª I’m not willing to do that.”
In fact, she wasn’t even supposed to star in her upcoming flick with Toni Collete saying “the timing was all wrong.” However, the project was just too damn good to pass up!
After reading the script, she said:
“I was furious that I liked it so much.”
For any diehard Barrymore fans, you might have to stock up on her DVDs — since we may not see her on the big screen for a VERY long time.
“Any acting roles will be few and far between until my kids are older and by then, who knows what I’ll want to do?”
But don’t think the former child star is saying sayonara to Hollywood forever.
“By no means am I abandoning acting├óΓé¼┬ª Nor am I pretending that I don’t love acting, but I cannot do it right now, with my children.”
We totally understand Drew’s reasoning and we hope she enjoys her time off!
