Drew Barrymore hasn’t always been lucky in love – her first marriage lasted 9 weeks, her second, to comedian Tom Green, 5 months – but the Whip It director says she’s definitely open to taking another walk down the aisle and to starting a family.
‘Well, I’d never say never to marriage and kids,” she tells the UK’s The Daily Mail.
Now 35, Drew has spent most of her life in the public eye. Her father John Barrymore was a successful actor and her mother also had Hollywood aspirations. After shooting to stardom at just 7 years old thanks to a role in her godfather Steven Spielberg‘s film E.T., Drew’s teenage years were difficult, bringing addiction, rehab and a suicide attempt.
Hers was hardly a typical childhood, but though Drew says she would encourage her own kids no matter what path they chose – “I’d definitely be the kind of parent who enabled my child’s dreams” – she adds that she’d learn from her own experiences.
“I have the blueprints of what not to do,” she says. “I think I’d be a good parent, actually.”
