Drew Barrymore: “Life Does Not Provide You With An Easy Ride”

Drew Barrymore: “Life Does Not Provide You With An Easy Ride”

InStyle talks to Drew Barrymore about motherhood, being a businesswoman and life lessons in the new November issue

Drew Barrymore graces the cover of InStyle this month, and somehow found the time between being a mother to one-year old Olive, wife to Will Kopelman, producing her own wine (yes, really), filming a new Adam Sandler movie and running her beauty business to give us an interview. Phew.

“Life does not provide you with an easy ride”, Drew said when asked what important lessons she has learnt. “Not to take away from the really big obstacles everybody faces, but I’ve also learnt you have to just realise how ridiculous certain things are.”

It sounds like sound advice to us. But then, we always knew Drew was a down-to-earth, laidback kind of lady. Her attitude to body image just proves this further: “Part of my plan has always been not to take it all so seriously… The other thing is to express yourself and try not to battle against what you naturally are… It’s a type of self-discipline not to do that and instead say, 'OK, this is what I’ve got so we’re going to work with it and we’re going to have some fun.'”

The accompanying photoshoot is absolute proof that hers is an attitude that pays off. Looking equally at home in high-octane Antoni Berardi, as well as floral Louis Vuitton, Drew shows she can pull off any look with utter ease. Take a look for yourself...
