Is Drew Barrymore the best daughter in the world?!

On Tuesday, it was revealed that the Miss You Already actress still supports her mother Jaid — despite the fact that she emancipated herself from her momma when she was 14-years-old.

In the Golden Globe winner’s new memoir, she wrote:

“I still support her ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ I must know that she is taken care of or I simply cannot function. I am grateful to this woman for bringing me into this world, and it would crush me to know she was in need anywhere.”

In case you forgot, Miz Barrymore’s mother had an unusual parenting style which resulted in the 50 First Dates star being institutionalized by Jaid at 13-years-old. Yikes!

She continued:

“It is not who I am to harbor any anger for the fact that our life together was so incredibly unorthodox. I want only to say thank you to her, because I love my life and it takes every step to get to where you are, and if you are happy, then God bless the hard times it took you to get there.”

Well said. It seems that the mother-of-two is sincere in her gratitude as she also took to Instagram to share a sweet snap of her and her mother (below).

Though, Drew may not be close to her parents, she did have an incredible role model in director Steven Spielberg.

She noted:

“To say that we loved him is the understatement of the world. Steven loved to freak people out with food, hence the food fights. He would put food in his mouth and then open it and say, ├óΓé¼╦£See food!’ and we all howled! He would dangle clams and then slurp them up, and we would all yell ‘Gross!!!!!’ and he loved it.”

Aww! How sweet.

We’ll definitely be excited to learn what else the blonde beauty’s dished about in her new book. Will you be picking it up now that it’s hit shelves??

Be sure to let us know (below)!
