Last week, actress Drew Barrymore sat down with “Extra’s” Renee Bargh for the first time since announcing her divorce from Will Kopelman.
Drew Barrymore was able to stay positive and focus on the important things, including their daughters Olive and Frankie.
“It’s like one foot in front of the other, business as usual, life is good, focus on the positive, be strong be happy, be human,” she said.
“I think nothing is earned easily, but it doesn’t have to be heavy... It’s like, life is heavy enough — lighten up. I just love, like, how happiness seems like this lofty, hippie-dippie kind of notion and it’s not. It’s a really hard-earned thing, and to bestow it on others and to maintain it as a mentality, it takes work and it pays off.”
Barrymore is working really hard on being a good mom to Olive and Frankie, who she credits with changing her life. She gushed, “My daughters have made me behave as the person I always dreamed to be.”
She went on, “It’s like, I would always climb that mountain and I would fail time and time again have a reaction that didn’t make me feel proud of myself or, you know, you’re just growing, trying to be the best person you can be but God, somehow my daughters have just pushed me over and I still fail all the time and I just get home at night and I’m like, 'I didn’t lose it, I somehow took the high road cause you forced me to.'”
