Drew Barrymore: I might never grow up

Drew Barrymore admits she still doesn't feel like a "grown-up".

Although the actress is 37 and married with a young daughter, she is still embracing her inner child. Drew has been through a tumultuous time in both her personal life and career and believes these experiences have made her who she is today.

"The mistakes, the potholes, the journeys, the bad patterns ¬- all of it is so much clearer to me now... but I still don't totally feel like a grown-up," Drew told the January issue of Allure magazine. "Maybe I never will."

Although Drew sometimes feels younger than her years, she takes her work and family responsibilities very seriously. The star married her fiancé Will Kopelman in June and gave birth to their daughter Olive in September this year. She is determined to be a good mom and wife, as well as a successful career woman.

"I will always commit," Drew explained. "I want to be that kind of mother. I'm that kind of friend. I'm that kind of producer. I do everything in this life-or-death way... The only thing I've tried to get better at is starting to believe maybe it's not life or death. But the [level of] commitment hasn't changed or wavered."

Drew is relishing being a married woman. She feels more settled than ever and is embracing her status as art consultant Will's wife.

"I'm a Kopelman now. I have stationery that says 'Drew Barrymore Kopelman,'" she beamed.

Drew also spoke about her Whip It co-star Kristen Wiig dating her ex-boyfriend Fabrizio Moretti. The actress insists there are no bad feelings about her pal romancing The Strokes drummer.

"It all seems so wacky and incestuous, but that's kind of how life works," she explained. "It seems fitting that they would find each other. I was like, 'Right, of course, that makes perfect sense.'"
