Actress Drew Barrymore says she will never lie to her daughters Olive and Frankie about her past, as she wants them to see how far she`s come after her battles with drug and alcohol abuse.
The 46-year-old actress has been open about her battles with drug and alcohol abuse which she faced after being thrust into the spotlight as a child when she starred in `E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial` in 1982, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
She said: “I will never lie to my daughters, and I think it will give me ammunition to say, `This is why I am this way`. I have come full circle to say being classy, treating people with kindness, trying to embrace who we really are and grow every single day, those are the life lessons I`ve really come to value.”
Barrymore, who has her daughters with former husband Will Kopelman, also said she doesn`t have any advice for her younger self, because she knows she “wouldn`t have listened” back then.
She doesn`t regret any of her past actions, because they all lead her to where she is today.
She told E! News` `Daily Pop`: “Well, first of all, she wouldn`t have listened to any advice I gave her. I`m really happy to have those free moments, so I would encourage her to be herself. I`ve been utterly me for better or for worse, so I would just say keep being you.
“I think I`m relieved that I haven`t stayed in the same place. I`ve grown a lot and I`ve worked really hard on myself. My 20-year-old self, I`m like, `I totally embrace you`, and my 46-year-old self is who I want to be right now. I don`t have one regret. I`ve just loved every minute that led me to this point.”
