Drew Barrymore is a mom now, which means she’s really “calmed down” with her wild ways and as she prepares for baby number two, she’s had a revelation: maybe she should stop talking about sex so much publicly and keep things a bit more low key. That apparently makes her a “prude”, in her own eyes, but whatever.
From Marie Claire:
“I’m so weary of the modern world… I don’t want to talk about sex anymore. I used to be so open.
“But now people are like, ‘Let’s explore our sexuality!’ And I’m like, ‘Let’s not!’ I’m such a prude these days.”
HA! I mean, I do think some things are better kept between friends and partners, but then again, I guess I actually am prudish in that way. I don’t think sex needs to be discussed in interviews and whatnot unless it’s relevant to the subject at hand. Then again, I also don’t think we should be all hush-hush and afraid to acknowledge it. There has to be a heavy medium, but some people just overdo it (looking at you, Miley Cyrus and the like). I don’t know fully how I feel about this – I’M NOT PERFECT, PEOPLE.
In any case, Drew also talked about her unconventional childhood, saying:
“When I was a kid, everything was so unplanned. My parents were so erratic and my world was so inconsistent.”I was 14 when I moved into my own apartment. I was so scared. I didn’t know anything. I didn’t know you had to throw food out when it rotted in the fridge. I was convinced someone was going to crawl through my window.”
It’s a shame, really, that she grew up like that – and a miracle she’s managed to get her shit together despite it all and still turn out okay.

Miss Drew Barrymore is pregnant! I call her Miss Drew Barrymore because of a sketch she did on Saturday Night Live a million years ago in which she sang a song called, “Life is good for Miss Drew Barrymore.” And life is good. Her rep confirmed to E Online that she is pregnant with her second child. Suck it, Aniston! (J/K and that was terrible.)
She has a daughter named Olive. What whimsical name will she give her second kid? I have some ideas:
– Votive Candle (or Votive Kandal if she wants to get really weird)
– Baby Bok Choy
Guess we’ll find out in a few months! Hope she can handle being a mom while working at the same time.

Drew Barrymore is every hippy flower child you hoped you’d never have to meet in real life, so I sorta expect her to have lots of friends and be super into rainbows and shit (I don’t know, just go with it). Indeed, the friendship part seems to be true, as she recently described fellow actress Cameron Diaz as one of her closest friends, So close, in fact, they’re like sisters.
From Life & Style:
I’m BFF-status with Cameron Diaz because…
She’s my sister, but we bro out and have crazy adventures. Most people don’t know this, but she’s very edgy.
LOL, okay. First of all, I can’t see either of these two “bro-ing out”. I don’t even get what that means. Are they pumping iron together? That’s what I visualise when I hear that expression. Also, Cameron Diaz is edgy? Uh, in what universe? I can’t.
On another note, I’m fascinated by celebrity friendships. Like, how are Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift besties? Actually, I guess that one makes sense. Chris Brown and Justin Bieber? Eh, assholes flock together… I dunno, I can’t think of any weird ones, now. YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.

Drew Barrymore shared her thoughts on motherhood at Lucky’s Fashion and Beauty Blog Conference (yeah, because judging by that outfit, she definitely belongs there.) She said that she can’t do everything — run businesses (apparently she has her own line of wines and cosmetics), act, produce, and direct, all while being a mom. People has more:
It sucks when you’ve worked really hard for certain things and you have to give them up because you know that you’re going to miss out on your child’s upbringing, or you realize that your relationship has suffered.
I can’t direct right now because I would miss out on my daughter. It was heartbreaking to let it go, but it was a clear choice.
I was raised in that generation of women can have it all, and I don’t think you can. I think some things fall off the table. The good news is, what does stay on the table becomes much more in focus and much more important.
The work-at-home component is brilliant. I was doing all my business meetings between 12 and 2 because that’s when my daughter was napping, and it helped tremendously!
I feel guilty all the time — but you combat it by being a superhero. When you go out there in the world you have to remember, ‘I’m doing the best I can, I’m doing it for them, and I’m going to be there for them too. I’m just going to figure out the balance.’
Hm. I guess it’s refreshing to hear that she doesn’t let 6 nannies raise her kids like some other celebrity moms are accused of doing. Not sure though why she has to completely give up directing. Not that it’s a huge loss.
Her wines look delicious. I thought she was a recovering alcoholic though. I guess I’m wrong about that.

When Drew Barrymore married husband Will Kopelman last summer, she knew it was for keeps – and that she’d eventually want to convert to Judaism since that’s Will’s background and they hope to raise their daughter Olive in the Jewish faith, as well. Since Drew never does anything half-assed, she’s apparently decided to have her tattoos surgically removed to be more in line with the tenets of her new religion.
From Star magazine (via Now):
The actress will undergo painful laser surgery because she won’t be allowed to get buried in a traditional Jewish cemetery if she’s still inked at death.
The Torah – a book of Jewish scriptures – bans body art with the words: ‘You shall not make gashes in your flesh for the dead, or incise any marks on yourselves.’
Drew, 37 – who married art dealer Will in June 2012 – has six tatts, including a bouquet of flowers on her hip, a butterfly on her stomach and a cross on her leg.
It seems converting to Judaism isn’t the only reason the mum-of-one wants to get rid of her etchings.
‘Drew also wants to be a Santa Barbara mom, and tattoos clash with that wardrobe,’ a source tells Star.
First of all, what in the hell is a “Santa Barbara mom”? Also, tattoos clash with the wardrobe? Any wardrobe has pieces that can cover up tattoos – unless you have your face inked or something – so that’s just bizarre and being a Santa Barbara mom sounds like a nightmare. Anyway, everyone can do what they’d like and best of luck to the happy couple, tattoos or no.
