Entertainment Tonight shared some excerpts from her InStyle interview. She talks about her husband Will and her new book Wildflower.

Love usually doesn’t happen like it does in fairy tales.

Drew Barrymore opened up about her husband, Will Kopelman, for InStyle magazine’s November issue recently, where the 40-year-old revealed that she didn’t realize he was “the one” right away.

“It was never really love at first sight,” Barrymore admitted. “Will struck a lot of my pragmatic sides. He was someone who was always reachable on the phone, someone who was a classy human being, someone who had this incredible blueprint of a family that I don’t have.”

“At the same time, what I love about him is that he embodies the power of choice,” she continued. “He chooses to be a good person every day.”

Barrymore, who married Kopelman in June 2012, also revealed their struggles saying, ”We’ve made many compromises and concessions, but when it comes to how we deliver likes and dislikes, we’re polar opposites. It’s still really hard.”

On the subject of love, the actress’ new memoir, Wildflower, intentionally avoids talking about Barrymore’s past relationships. She says this is out of respect for her and Kopelman’s daughters, 3-year-old Olive and 1-year-old Frankie.

“I felt it was inappropriate to discuss relationships and encounters I have had with another person,” Barrymore said. “I consciously chose not to include those. I want this book to be a love letter to my daughters, Frankie and Olive. They don’t need to know about my sex life.”

People.com shares that Drew is going to be on InStyle magazine’s first virtual reality cover experience.

Drew Barrymore is one of our all-time favorite celebrities — she’s personable, fun, takes a great selfie and is always down to try something new. Which is why she was the perfect choice to test out InStyle‘s first-ever virtual reality cover experience. But inside, she was the same old Drew: Candid, charming and totally relatable on things including body image and what you really don’t want to know about your parents.

First and most important to Barrymore is to know thyself, and to then have a sense of humor about thyself. “I am who I am and I just don’t have a bikini body,” she says. “I don’t even have a one piece body anymore! But I am loving the long rash guard, board-shorts look.”

Though it’s not always easy to be so laid-back about it. “I’ve beaten myself up about not being a certain thing. If someone says, ‘Let’s go to the beach today,’ my first thought is, ‘F––, what am I going to wear?’ I remember when Amy Schumer was on Ellen, she called her midsection a ‘lava lamp.’ I thought, That was perfect! That’s what I’ve been trying to say. But then I saw her in Trainwreck, and she looked so good in a tiny bra and short skirt. I was like, ‘No, you don’t have a lava lamp.’”

She is more focused these days on passing on what she’s learned from her rollercoaster childhood. “I’m not going to pretend to my daughters that I’m pure as the driven snow… The best I can do is open up my heart to them. That’s soul-baring enough,” she explains. “Making bad decisions doesn’t make you a bad person. It is how you learn to make better choices.”

And one better choice she intends to make? Not embarrassing her kids with her new book of personal essays, Wildflower, which she calls “a love letter” to her daughters. “My own mother, Jaid, wrote a book on sex, and it was the most mortifying feeling in the world,” she says.” So I know how a child feels when their parents put themselves out there too much, and I will never do that to my daughters. There are some things about your parents you just don’t need to know.”

Friday Drew & Toni appeared on Lorraine on ITV in Britian.

When Drew Barrymore and Toni Collette dropped by for an chat with Lorraine, we grabbed our chance to ask them all about their friendship, holidaying together, and why Drew would throw on her superfriend cape at a moment’s notice and fly across the world for her pals.

Drew talked with People.com about meeting Toni and about filming together on Miss You Already.

When two actresses meet each other for the first time before filming, there’s no way to predict what the chemistry will be like.

But in Miss You Already, a story about the complexity of female friendship, chemistry was the most important factor for the film. Luckily for Drew Barrymore and Toni Collette, they hit it off right away.

“We unzipped and jumped right in,” Barrymore, 40, tells PEOPLE at the Toronto International Film Festival. “We really got along and we liked each other. We had the electric connection and you can’t fake it. You hope for it, but you don’t know what it’s going to be like when you show up.

Collette, 42, noted that the two women had mutual friends but that they had never really gotten to know each other before taking on the roles. As soon as they began working, though, forming a friendship was “instant and easy,” she said.

Miss You Already tells the story of two lifelong best friends at different crossroads in their lives. Their friendship is put to the test when one starts a family and the other is diagnosed with cancer.

“This [story] is such a celebration of life,” Barrymore says. “You’re not always perfect and weepy. You’re selfish and you’re angry and it’s humorous and you make each other laugh – you’re connected, you’re distant. Lifelong friendship takes so many extraordinary things – it’s birth, it’s death, and that’s what’s all in this film somehow in the most unheavy-handed way.”

Miss You Already made its debut at the film festival on Saturday. It will hit theaters everywhere on Nov. 6.

As a mom to two young daughters, Drew Barrymore doesn’t have a ton of time right now to be acting in films. Unless you can make her cry.

Barrymore and Toni Collette (United States of Tara) star in Miss You Already, a heartstring-plucking drama about lifelong friends Jess (Barrymore) and Milly (Collette) coping with Milly’s breast cancer. It premiered Saturday at the Toronto International Film Festival and opens wide on Nov. 6

When Barrymore’s agent insisted she read the script, she did so while holding then-newborn daughter Frankie in her arms and trying to feed toddler Olive breakfast.

“I was trying to hide my tears from my daughter because I didn’t want to scare her,” said Barrymore, who was so taken with the story that she couldn’t say no.

While she likely won’t be pouring drinks at homey dive bar Sweaty Betty’s on this visit to Toronto – as she famously did in 2009, during the wrap party for her movie Whip It – Barrymore loves the Toronto International Film Festival vibe.

“It just has a focus that’s the greatest place to show movies,” Barrymore said. “It’s twofold – the audiences are extraordinary, and the festival is like the most important festival on a business level. I mean, if you get into Toronto, it’s a serious deal.”

With Barrymore balancing parenting, film production and her successful cosmetics company, time is perhaps her most precious commodity. But she realizes that if there’s going to be another Charlie’s Angels movie – Barrymore starred in and produced the 2000 and 2003 instalments – time is running out.

“I’m like, ‘We’d better do this before we’re all in wheelchair,’ because that’s more of like the Naked Gun version,” Barrymore said. “Everyone’s life is in a very distinct place, and movies are not the universe of a bunch of people who were involved in making the first two. So it’s tricky, but we talk about it very seriously.”

But despite any rumours you may have heard, one thing that’s never going to happen is a sequel to 1982’s E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, the Steven Spielberg classic that made seven-year-old Drew Barrymore a household name.

“He does not ever want to make a sequel to that,” Barrymore said of her friend and godfather, Spielberg. “He didn’t at the time, and he doesn’t now. That would be really weird.”

The actress recalls advice she received from a friend: “Why don’t you play the hot mess?”

For much of the time that director Catherine Hardwicke‘s new indie “Miss You Already” was in development, Toni Collette was attached to play the role that eventually went to Drew Barrymore.

As the Australian actress recalled in an interview with TheWrap’s Steve Pond at the Toronto Film Festival, she got some telling advice from a friend: “You have to stop playing these kind of grounded, supporting roles. Why don’t you play the hot mess?”

In the film, Barrymore and Collette play childhood best friends whose relationship hits a rough patch when Barrymore’s character struggles to have a baby and Collette’s learns she has breast cancer.

The film, from a script by Morwenna Banks, also stars Dominic Cooper, Paddy Considine and Jacqueline Bisset.
Roadside Attractions and Lionsgate are releasing the film domestically on Nov. 6.
