Barrymore: I can’t cook

Drew Barrymore wishes she could cook like Cameron Diaz.

The actress is married to Will Kopelman, with whom she has two daughters – Olive, one-and-a-half, and Frankie, who was born last week.

While Drew loves her family life and everything that comes with it, she wants to go to cooking school to become better in the kitchen.

"I really love cooking, it makes me so happy. But I'm terrible at it," she told Red Magazine. "None of it is effortless or sexy or even tastes that good for that matter, but I'm really working on it. I might travel somewhere to do it, and bring the family. I love cooking for Olive now, but I used to be Mrs Takeout...I've just never learned to cook in my life…Cameron [Diaz]'s a great cook, and always has been. I'm just trying to catch up to that."

Drew has already tried classes, having taken some while pregnant with her friends Cameron and Reese Witherspoon.

The Wedding Singer star has made it clear her domestic life is now taking priority over her career. According to the 39-year-old, she wants her children to always feel their mother is present.

"My parents split up before I was born and my dad was just never capable of being a father," she said. "It's something I really accepted and became okay with early on. But it's shocking to me that someone can make that choice. As much as I accepted it with him, I could never accept it in a partner…for some people showing up is just not possible and that is incredibly frustrating. When you become a parent, and think about what kids need, it is very emotional."
