[ # ] Drew Barrymore tells tabloids she never wished her mother dead
June 6th, 2023 under Drew Barrymore

It is no secret that Drew Barrymore and her mother have a problematic relationship. And she talked about it to Vulture.

She explained to the reporter why she needed to interview Jennette McCurdy and Brooke Shields on her talk show about what they wrote in their books about their momangers. “All their moms are gone, and my mom’s not,” she says. “And I’m like, Well, I don’t have that luxury. But I cannot wait. I don’t want to live in a state where I wish someone to be gone sooner than they’re meant to be so I can grow. I actually want her to be happy and thrive and be healthy. But I have to fucking grow in spite of her being on this planet.”

Several sites interpreted that the actress wishes her mom dead from that quote, and she was livid about what they said.

So she took to social media to angrily explain what she meant, so they would retract what they wrote. “To all you tabloids out there, you have been fucking with my life since I was 13 years old. I have never said that I wish my mother was dead. How DARE you put those words in my mouth.

“I have been vulnerable and tried to figure out a very difficult, painful relationship, while admitting it is difficult to do while a parent is alive. And that for those of us who have to figure that out in real time, cannot wait, as in cannot wait for ‘the time,’ not ‘the parent is dead.’

“Don’t twist my words around or ever say that I wish my mother was dead. I have never said that. I never would. In fact, I go on to say, ‘That I wish that I never live in an existence where I would wish that on someone because that is sick.”

I have never seen the actress get that mad over anything, so you know that it really got to her. Hopefully, they will apologize to her. But I doubt it.
