Drew Barrymore: 'I Had Such an Exposed Childhood... I Don't Want That for My Kid'

(Daniel Jackson for Harper’s Bazaar) Drew Barrymore covers the March 2013 issue

Veteran actress Drew Barrymore graces the March 2013 cover of Harper's Bazaar—which hits newsstands February 12th—and, inside, she dishes on everything from her pregnancy to her brand-new makeup line. Check out the best bits from the interview, right here.

On the birth of her daughter: "I definitely needed some time. For a solid six weeks, I was hiding like the Unabomber. Because I live my life in the public eye, I didn't want that for her. Unliess I move into a bunker underground, I don't have a choice in this matter. It was something that took me weeks to cope with."

On her own childhood in the spotlight: "I know she [Olive] didn't sign up for that. I had such an exposed childhood. I appreciate my journey, but I don't want that for my kid. Not any of it. It has nothing to do with whether I liked my childhood. I really did. But as as parent, that isn't the childhood that I'd provide."

On launching a makeup line: "I didn't feel like could do a lot with fashion because I wear sweatpants that I find on the floor. I live for makeup and I like wine. These are my truths!"

On her new makeup campaign: "I grew up in a makeup chair. And to see the women around me getting ready was so aspirational. It's about mothers and daughers, a girl watching her mom at a vanity table. I didn't want a cold campaign with severe messaging. I wanted warmth and acceptance and self-love. Nobody's in gold rain or running through a jungle with their lipstick on. It was just me and some great music on a white background. That's every girl, in her closet getting ready."
