“When I first had my kids, I think I was so obsessed with doing everything differently with them, I almost thought that acting was some calling from the devil,” said Barrymore. “I was thinking, ‘My daughters will never be actors! God, no!’”

But she eventually came around, “And then I’m, like, wait, it’s a great family trade. I’m a Barrymore. My family has been doing this for hundreds and hundreds of years, and multiple generations.”

“[What] I really wanted for them was something very normal and traditional and safe,” she said about her own “unorthodox childhood”. “I feel like I’ve accomplished that or I continue to sort of have that be my intention every day.”
