PHOTOS: Drew Barrymore Talks Makeup And Motherhood In Bazaar
“Everything I do, I do infinite percent,” Drew Barrymore says in the March issue of Harper’s Bazaar. She’s referring, of course, to her brand new makeup line with Walmart, Flower, but also to motherhood, cooking, winemaking — you name it. Even photoshoots, or so it seems at least, since her Daniel Jackson-lensed cover is one of the best we’ve seen from the magazine in a while.
The newsstand version is bold and graphic, with Drew’s checkerboard Louis Vuitton dress set off by pops of red, while subscribers get a Dior-clad Drew with a crimson sash around her neck. Inside the issue, the actress-slash-entrepreneur dishes on her daughter Olive, dealing with constant media attention, and why she finally dove head first in to the cosmetics game.
On secluding herself after Olive’s birth:
“‘I definitely needed some time. For a solid six weeks, I was hiding like the Unabomber. Because I live my life in the public eye, and I didn’t want that for her.”
On protecting her daughter from public scrutiny:
“We could literally live in a windowless room 10 feet underground. Or I could come to terms with the fact that it’s really hard. I went through every scenario in my head of how to make it work, and I just didn’t want to be one of those weirdos in a cabin in the woods in a hooded sweatshirt.”
On why cosmetics felt right:
“I live for makeup and I like wine. These are my truths!”
