You 101: Drew Barrymore, Work and Love

In April's Glamour, Carrie Fisher interviews Drew Barrymore, exploring how she's managed to become such an unlilkely and unique success story, inside and out. There's much of interest in the interview, but this gem I selected just for you:

For years I've said that when it comes business, I am a woman, and when it comes to relationships, I am a child. I just haven't figured out how to bring the same confidence and conviction I have in the boardroom to my romantic relationships

Anybody else have an experience like this? Where one part of your life feels very adult and confident, and another part seems childlike and unsure? Anyone out there more secure in their intimate relationship than in their other roles? Let's talk about it, ladies!

I def feel that way. I def don't stand up for myself enough in relationships, and I stay too long in unhealthy ones.

From other quotes I have read of hers, she seems like she's kind of fixated on the romantic type of Hollywood love lasting forever and ever and she's invariably disappointed when it doesn't. I feel like in that respect, she is a child. It would be hard to be surrounded by that and not get sucked into it in a way.

Oh yep, I was feeling that way pretty much all my dating years. The feeling stopped when I found my hubby (the anxiety went to rest for good :) ). I guess Drew hasn't found the one. Anyway I thought spike jones is her man! They look like a good couple.. He's very much a risk taker and so is she.

shit look at her family and her personal history (early substance abuse). it's sort of amazing that she's doing as well as she is. her mother was giving her weed at what, 10? she seems very at ease with herself. maybe let someone set you up on a blind date drew :KISS:
