The model joined Barrymore to discuss the importance of being open about losses and imperfections in life.
“I lost my mom this year and we talk a lot about grief,” shared Sims, while speaking about her website. “Then we talk about girlfriends and just really digging, just digging a little deeper than before.”
“This year has been such a year of loss and such a year of new experiences, and new coping mechanisms,” Barrymore commented.
Sims replied, “Yeah, I never thought, you know, I never thought that … Listen, she was definitely sick… I just never thought I would lose, you know, my best friend, you know, during, during a pandemic, you know?”
She continued, “Its been hard but it’s also been great because I’ve had such a great community reach out to me, and I’ve had great people to speak to. And it’s just, it definitely, you know, a process.”
Sims added, “And I think sometimes in our business, that we only show the filtered Instagram, like perfect part. And life’s just not like that. You know what I mean?”
