Do as I say, not as I do (or did, at least)! That's going to be Drew Barrymore's mom motto, it seems. The actress and author opened up about her hope that daughter Olive and her baby girl on the way won't follow in her footsteps when it comes to certain things.
As a troubled teen, Drew battled addiction and was admittedly a wild child. The actress posed for Playboy when she was just 18 and hopes that she can prevent her daughters from doing the same. "I would not let her. I don't think I would. I would influence her not to, because my life choices are supposed to be the gateway to somebody else's. That's my journey."
Make no mistake, Drew is owning her past decisions, but she's in full mommy mode now and wants a different life for her kids. "I have no regrets in my life whatsoever. I'm psyched about it all. I'm just in such a different mind frame. I'm in mom mode now. The best kind of parent you can be is to lead by example. Whatever I've experienced in my life is a part of my story, and I'm proud of that. But it's someone who wakes up early, works all day, believes in charitable work, business-minded, diligent, accountable, problem-solving . . . I'm so much about school, consistency and tradition."
