Barrymore’s straight life

For a long time, Drew Barrymore was Hollywood’s most famous wild child.

Drew Barrymore has finally become boring, said Allison Glock in Marie Claire. For a long time, the actress was Hollywood’s most famous wild child: She entered drug rehab at age 13, posed nude for Playboy at 19, and flashed her breasts on live television to late-night host David Letterman when she was 20. But since becoming a mother—she has a 16-month-old daughter with her art consultant husband, Will Kopelman—Barrymore, 38, has found herself craving “structure, consistency, privacy, plans; they are crucial to me.” She laughs. “God, I’m so boring now! I don’t want to talk about sex anymore. I’m such a prude these days.” She still has a talent for kicking up a controversy. Not too long ago, she faced a feminist backlash for saying she didn’t believe women could “have it all.” Barrymore did not back down. “You don’t get to do everything all at once and all the time,” she says. “Life doesn’t work that way. I’m definitely going to be 5 to 10 pounds overweight. I’ll be thrilled if my husband is pleased with me that day, if my kid feels like she came first, and if I accomplished something at my job. Then I can hit the sack.”
