DREW BARRYMORE has spent 43 years charging forward. We asked her to go back to where she started.

One advantage Drew Barrymore has from living in the heart of the cultural consciousness for the past 35 years is that she has primo #TBT material. “When I was 6, my mom dressed me like a little 80-year-old woman,” Barrymore says, holding a stack of inspiration images on the set of her InStyle cover shoot. She lands on one from 1983 where she’s in a miniature black evening gown and pearls. “When I first unearthed this photo, I was like, ‘Are you kidding me? That’s my daughter Olive’s body 100 percent!’ ”

But it wasn’t only the trickle-down genetics and era-specific fashion that resonated. “None of those pictures were taken at home,” she says a few days later, sitting in the den of her Upper East Side apartment in N.Y.C. “Not like people would necessarily have pictures of me at home, but it’s almost like I never was at home. I was always out and about. That was the biggest takeaway for me.” She pauses and smiles. “And it’s funny because you’d have to take a crowbar and a spatula and a forklift to get me out of the house now.”

Barrymore’s apartment is equal measures Drew and her two daughters, Olive (5) and Frankie (3). Sandra Boynton books are stacked on Rizzoli monographs; Dr. Seuss mingles with Joan Didion. It’s cozy and personal—and has a super-impressive craft closet. It’s easy to see why the trio who inhabit the space would never want to leave. Tonight the family has just finished decorating two Christmas trees to a holiday playlist of Elvis Presley, Mariah Carey, and Bing Crosby classics. Miracle on 34th Street is on TV, soundless, in the background.

At 43, Barrymore is still finding room to explore. Outside of acting, which she still loves (her Netflix show, Santa Clarita Diet, returns for a second season this year), and producing (her company, Flower Films, has both TV shows and films in the works), the star also boasts Barry­more Wines by Carmel Road, the cosmetics line Flower Beauty, and Dear Drew, a clothing collection launched this fall with Amazon Fashion.

“I kept feeling this burning desire to build an apparel brand for women by women, to explore something romantic,” she says. “I took it back to my love of tailoring and having been in a costume house my whole life.” The cuts and silhouettes match Barrymore’s personal aesthetic. “I have a body type that I tend to cover up,” she says. “So it’s nothing tight, not big and boxy, more of a fluid drape that feels like the ’20s, ’40s, and ’70s. Not utterly casual but efforted in its effortlessness.

“I’m very conscious about the way people feel,” Barrymore says of how she looks at her growing empire. “When I was making movies, I just didn’t want to tell a depressing story; I wanted to tell one about some type of self-improvement. I thought, ‘There’s enough shit in life. I want optimism and joy.’ At the same time, I don’t like magic-wand happy endings—and now I don’t like magic-wand makeup or magic-wand clothes.”

Drew Barrymore was honored at the annual Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles Once Upon A Time Gala in Los Angeles on Saturday night, and ET’s Lauren Zima caught up with her on the red carpet, where she opened up about her love of Halloween and the challenges of co-parenting.

So how does Barrymore make it work as a newly single mom-of-two? “Plans,” she explains. “Constant plans. We, as a family, have three dates for this Halloween.”

Between all the planning and coordinating with her ex-husband Will Kopelman’s family — the couple’s divorce was finalized in August after four years of marriage — Barrymore says she feels honored for the continued love and acceptance from her children’s paternal grandmother. “[It] means the world to me,” she says.

Still, the 41-year-old actress and producer is looking forward to the hectic Halloween in front of her. “It’s like the best day ever,” she gushes. “It’s the only day that’s acceptable and not totally creepy to wear a mask, so God bless Halloween! I love it. I get to be an anonymous parent that night, so I’m into that!”

Speaking of dressing up, Barrymore looked stunning in a black, off-the-shoulder Elizabeth Kennedy New York dress, with her hair swept back in a loose braid.

But with the busy demands of motherhood and entrepreneurship — Barrymore has her own makeup line, Flower Beauty, as well as her own production company, Flower Films — the star says she saves getting made up for special occasions these days.

“I have a motto, ‘A smile is better than any lipstick you’re ever going to buy,'” she says. “So if I can be just me every day of my life and have the makeup moment feel special or like I’m carving something out of my time, or I’m making an effort to show someone in a meeting or a dinner that I’ve made the effort — it feels special. But every day is not like that.”

That explains some of the stellar makeup-free looks the How To Be Single producer has been posting to her Instagram lately!

Barrymore was honored at the Children’s Hospital gala with the Courage to Care award, given to those who champion children’s welfare-related causes. She posted a photo of her award to Instagram on Sunday, writing that the honor “will just make me work harder to earn it!”

But that wasn’t all! Barrymore also got to fangirl over fellow Children’s Hospital volunteer, Katy Perry, who performed at the gala.

“Oh yeah! And this happened!!!,” she wrote on Instagram. “@katyperry my fellow @childrensla representative tonight at the gala!!! #loveher #roar me and my daughters listen to her with such joy!”

Plus, the actress had a very special date for the gala: 13-year-old Madison Elizondo. Barrymore met Elizondo, who has been treated frequently at the hospital, last year, and the two formed a friendship. ET can exclusively reveal that Barrymore gave her pal the full red-carpet treatment Saturday night! Elizondo was styled by Barrymore’s personal stylist, and the actress’ team also did her nails and makeup.

Looks like we might be getting a new talk show hosted by Drew!

Show would be produced by Warner Bros., Ellen DeGeneres

Hearst Television has picked up Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution’s new talk show starring Drew Barrymore, sources report.

Like Bethenny Frankel before it, Barrymore did her deal with Ellen DeGeneres’ A Very Good Production company, and DeGeneres would be an executive producer on the program.

Hearst is said to be interested in Barrymore because magazines published by its parent company do well when the actress appears on covers.

That Warner Bros. was in talks with the actress on a development deal was reported over the summer, although until now there’s been no movement on the project.

The move comes as there seems to be a lack of new projects coming to first-run syndication. NBCUniversal this season produced the only new nationally-cleared first-run strip, Harry, starring Harry Connick Jr. The show, which airs on Fox-owned stations in major markets, is averaging a 1.3 live-plus-same-day household rating, according to Nielsen Media Research. Last week, Connick Jr. got a cameo on NBC’s Today, replacing the ousted Billy Bush as a guest host in the 9 a.m. hour.

Tegna this season also launched its talk show starring T. D. Jakes, but the show isn’t cleared across the entire country.

Drew Barrymore is no doubt best-known for her huge Hollywood roles in blockbuster titles — “E.T,” “Charlie’s Angels,” “Never Been Kissed,” and “Donnie Darko” — and while she still plays a major role in the movie and TV industry through her production company Flower Films, a big focus of her life now is situated at the helm of her cosmetics business.

Barrymore founded Flower Cosmetics in 2013, which offers an affordable cosmetics line, sold exclusively at Walmart.

The cosmetics industry has many established players and the sector is extremely competitive; something Barrymore clearly knew a thing or two about when she launched Flower — her ex-husband’s father, Arie Kopelman, is the CEO of Chanel.

Speaking to Business Insider at Advertising Week New York on Wednesday, Barrymore explained the three reasons why she made the leap.

“It was getting my sort of college degree in being a co-creative director for Cover Girl for eight years, being part of the campaigns, and concepts, and marketing, and photography,” she said. “Working with [makeup artist] Pat McGrath and trying to drive the brand into something I felt like could best serve, as well as the women we were trying to reach gave me so much education that it felt like a waste not to do something with it.”

Barrymore then joked: “I’ve also been in a makeup chair since I was 6-years-old and had the fortune of working with the icons of the beauty industry, so learning, being in love with products, pigments, brands, companies, and just being a constant student of makeup.”

She described the third reason as a “hybrid” of the love of makeup and the advertising of it.

“I think there’s such a crucial necessity for positive messaging so that women feel empowered and are not making themselves up to be something else,” she said. “It’s always about being the best you. Who you are inside and your joy levels and a smile is better than any lipstick. It’s sort of anti-makeup messaging, but I think it’s more human-messaging and the rest will fall into place.”

What most surprised Barrymore about running a cosmetics line was the “level of time-consuming anxiety” that comes with constantly attempting to track down the latest innovations.

Barrymore said: “That’s really what the beauty game is all about. It’s about constant new-to-market products. So traveling to labs and creating 30 to 50 new products every single year is so much more all encompassing and consuming than I would have assumed.”

“When we launched, we launched with 180 products and that felt like an undertaking. But every year there are 30 to 50 [new products]. Chasing innovations and being competitive with the labs is one of the most challenging and exhausting [aspects] but when you win a victory, you feel like you want to throw a party. You got that formula? This is a good day,” Barrymore added.

The Flower brand has since expanded into other verticals including eyewear and a recently announced home line. We asked where she might take it next.

“[The idea is] to build the branches of your tree from a nucleus. The nucleus is color cosmetics with Flower: Fragrance, brushes, bags, eyewear — things that naturally evolve and don’t feel like they are greedy and all over the place,” Barrymore said.

“With the [home] line comes the love of home, and design, and lifestyle — those are natural branches to that tree. Slow and steady wins the race and being on point with what you’re trying to do, rather than just throwing it out there and seeing what sticks,” she said.

As far as marketing is concerned, Barrymore remarked that there has never been more content available from beauty bloggers and companies offering makeup “how-tos.”

“If anything, it’s overloaded. Where do I begin to go down the rabbit hole of people showing their knowledge, application, love, passion, their latest thing? It’s all being shared out there and that’s fun to see major companies that used to just rely on TV and print accessing these women bloggers out there and wanting them to talk about their products because it’s a more human channel,” Barrymore said.

As for herself, Barrymore says Instagram is her online channel of choice. The actress, producer, and entrepreneur has more than 5.3 million followers and regularly shares updates about her businesses.

“Instagram: that’s my platform. I need one and one only. I’ve never done Snapchat, never done Twitter. Facebook is important but I’m personally invested in Instagram — that’s my channel,” she said.

Barrymore participated in an Advertising Week New York panel on Tuesday afternoon with her ex-husband Will Kopelman’s father Arie Kopelman, who is the CEO of Chanel, and her ex-husband’s brother-in-law, ad tech company Kargo’s founder and CEO Harry Kargman.
