The actress and talk-show presenter discusses her complex relationship with her mother Jaid Barrymore, who also worked as Barrymore’s manager throughout her spectacular climb to child stardom, in an interview with New York magazine that was published on Monday.
Barrymore laments that having her mother around prevents her from fully mending and claims that those whose parents have passed away have the “luxury” of moving on.
“I’m impatient. According to Barrymore, “I do not wish to be in an environment where it’s possible someone would pass away earlier than they’re meant to so that I can grow. “I genuinely want her to be happy and healthy.
Barrymore insists that her contradictory sentiments about her mother are not spiteful despite the private revelation. She subsequently admits in the interview, “I ventured to say it, and I didn’t feel good. “Yes, I care. Never will I stop caring.
Actors Jaid and John Drew Barrymore gave birth to Barrymore in 1975. The Emmy-nominated actress’ turbulent childhood, which included drug-fueled visits to nightclubs with her mother Jaid, a required stay in rehab at age 13, and two suicide attempts, led to her emancipation from her parents. Barrymore’s troubled relationship with her mother contrasts with her close bond with her father, who passed away in 2004 after a battle with multiple myeloma.
Regarding her late father, Barrymore adds, “I just realized what a helpless human being he was. “I understand how difficult that must be for my mum. She goes through all the suffering while it’s like he gets a free ticket.
The text said, “She stated that she loved me and she was glad of me.” “I don’t give a damn about your age or the scope of your objective. When your mother says she loves you, you are transported back to your childhood. And the nicest part is that she loves me in spite of my honesty and my truth.
“I pardon my mother. I’m sorry, dad,” Barrymore said. “I’ve never forgave myself, but I’m ready to and I’d like to.”
