Getting divorced is no walk in the park, especially if you’re a high-profile actress, but following Drew Barrymore’s announcement that she and husband Will Kopelman are splitting after four years of marriage, the actress seems to be doing just fine. “I’m so happy now, and I have such a good thing in my life with my kids and everything,” she told Us Weekly on Sunday at the Safe Kids Day event in Culver City, CA.
As if promoting the release of her new line of Rosé wine and spending time with friends wasn’t enough to keep her mind off of things, Drew has also been busy with her adorable daughters, Olive, 3, and Frankie, 2. “Yesterday, Olive got into my lipstick and it was a real scene,” she continued. “Let’s just say the whole face got covered, then the hands on the walls, everywhere… I was like, how did this happen in three minutes? It took over an hour to get it off of her. It was nuts.”
Drew also celebrated Frankie’s second birthday last Friday, saying the party was “so sweet and delicious,” and that Frankie’s Minnie Mouse cake was “the best thing ever.”
It sounds like Drew Barrymore’s happy to be a single lady. “If you’re 35 and single and it’s a choice, it feels fine,” the star told the August issue of ELLE. “So I didn’t settle with the wrong person yet. Big deal!”
However, Drew’s actions may speak louder than words. Her next film is the romantic comedy “Going The Distance,” in which she stars opposite Justin – her on-again, off-again boyfriend, who seems to be on again judging by the pair’s cuddly appearance at the 2010 GLAAD Media Awards in April as well as their red-carpet lip-lock at the Golden Globes in January.
But the two have kept quiet about their romantic status, with Drew, wearing a form-fitting black Calvin Klein dress on the mag’s cover, addressing other topics in the new interview.
“I don’t want to be vain or fearful, and I don’t think I’ll do anything [in terms of plastic surgery], but if I want to do something, I will,” Drew said of getting older. “From my perspective, there’s no reason to be afraid of aging, because if you age, you’re lucky! The alternative is death.”
The actor-producer-director added that film is still her focus. “I make movies. I have a passion,” Drew said. “Puppies and daisies don’t accomplish anything. That’s not me at all.”
