After the publication of an interview that Drew Barrymore gave to The New York Magazine where she talked about her relationship with her mother and that she apparently wished her death, the actress came out to clarify the situation.
In the interview Drew Barrymore said that it was a privilege for her that her mother was still alive, since most of her friends have lost their parents and as a result of this they have overcome their traumas.
“All their moms are gone, and my mom is not. And I’m like, ‘Well, I don’t have that luxury.’
I can not wait. I don’t want to live in a state where I wish someone would leave sooner than they should so I can grow. In fact, I want her to be happy, prosperous, and healthy.
But I have to grow up even though she is on this planet,” the actress said in the interview.
Drew Barrymore’s words were taken by hundreds of media outlets that assured that the famous woman wished her mother death and after this, the ET actress defended herself.
Through a video he posted on Instagram, Drew Barrymore sent a message to the media that misinterpreted his words.
“How dare you put those words in my mouth. I have been vulnerable and had to figure out how to deal with a difficult and painful relationship with my mother, while admitting that it is a difficult thing to do…
When such a father is alive.
And for those of us who have to figure out these kinds of things, I know that we ‘can’t wait’ for this to be resolved. I’m not talking about his death, ”he said.
