Drew Barrymore: 'I Live For Makeup and I Like Wine!'

Drew Barrymore Harper's BazaarDaniel Jackson for Harper’s BAZAAR

If you take away the fact that she’s a multi-talented movie star, producer, former CoverGirl and current cosmetics mogul who got married in Chanel, we really have a ton in common with Drew Barrymore.

For instance, we share the same life motto. “I live for makeup and I like wine. These are my truths!” she says in the March issue of Harper’s Bazaar of the decision to start Flower Cosmetics and Barrymore Wines while pregnant with daughter Olive.

More revelations that we’re totally on board with? “I wear sweatpants that I find on the floor” (on why she didn’t want to start a fashion line, like many celebs) and “It’s my crusade to help women feel good about themselves” — something that we at PEOPLE StyleWatch fully relate to.

It’s to fulfill that mission that she started Flower in the first place, and why she’s been so involved in everything from the formula to the packaging: “It’s about … a girl watching her mom at a vanity table,” she says. “I wanted warmth and acceptance and self-love.” And if she achieves that with Flower while wearing homemade tie-dye yoga pants (you’ve got to read it to believe it), well, we’ll love her even more.

Drew grow up to be very lovely. I’m so glad she got past all of her mom’s abuse.

Drew has really cleaned up her act from a few years ago. I actually really respect her now and she’s seemed to have matured a great bit and seems like a very grounded, confident, caring person. Good for you Drew!!! :)

She’s too cute and very real! And don’t we all wear sweatpants we find on the floor. HA!

I love Drew however if her “crusade” is to help women feel good about themselves this photo shoot should not be filled with so much airbrushing. I just watched her Oprah interview and YES she looked like a new mom….she has not yet lost baby weight and talked about how she did not care…in this photo she looks super thin….which is it?

Darian on

Love her. I too wear sweatpants I find on the floor, lol.

Just Me on

@liarlairpantsonfire, I was thinking the EXACT same thing.

I wear sweatpants “THAN” I find on the floor? Who writes this stuff…or…who edits and proofs this stuff.
