Drew Barrymore has been famous for practically her entire life, and for most of those years, she’s lived pretty unconventionally. She flashed David Letterman during an interview. She went to rehab before she graduated high school, and she even pushed aside her acting career for a short time to direct a surprisingly good movie. Consequently, she doesn’t exactly seem like the type of woman to tell her fellow ladies they can’t have it all, but that’s exactly what she did earlier this week.
The actress/ new wife/ new mother was at a panel for Lucky when she was asked how she’s able to juggle so many hats. Here’s a portion of what she had to say, as per US Magazine…
“I was raised in that generation of women can have it all, and I don’t think you can. I think some things fall off the table. The good news is, what does stay on the table becomes much more in focus and much more important.”
Barrymore went on to say that she had to decide between continuing to direct and seeing all the little moments of her daughter growing up, and while it sucks, she decided she would rather be with her daughter. Not surprisingly, her comments have generated a pretty polarized response. There are some who absolutely agree with her and think that, logically, it’s impossible to have it all. There are others, however, who think it’s unfair for her to make a blanket statement about other women and whether they can or cannot have it all.
