Drew Barrymore says she will be cutting down on her acting career and other showbiz in order to properly raise her kids.
Speaking on Frday’s Today Show, the actress said she would prefer being in her daughters’ lives than being in front of the camera.
‘I think I will act less and less,’ she said. ‘It’s hard to be present when you wake up before them and come home after they’ve gone to bed. That’s just not the way I want to have this journey with my kids at this point in their life. But maybe when they’re older, I will feel differently. But at this point, I think it has to be few and far between.’
Barrymore, who calls herself a ‘traditional’ mom, revealed that she was brought up in the ‘untraditional’ way – something she does not want for her kids.
‘I’m not organized in my life,’ she said. ‘I lose everything and I’m a complete disaster. With my kids, I really kind of don’t accept that from myself because I think kids learn from example of the way you live your life.’
‘I had a very untraditional upbringing, so I looked at it from afar and just thought, “Well that’s the exact opposite of how I’d want to raise my kids.”‘
