Dec. 9, 2021 – The actress is known for her bright and bubbly personality, but she told “CBS Mornings” that she did not talk to people about her sobriety for years because it was a “quiet, confident journey.” 

“I just want to figure this out and go about this with no profession, no public anything. Let me do this quietly and privately. And now it’s been long enough where I’m in a lifestyle that I know is really working on a high road for my little journey, and there’s so much peace finally being had where there were demons,” Barrymore said. 

In a powerful interview with rapper and actor Machine Gun Kelly for her show “The Drew Barrymore Show,” Barrymore talked about going to a facility in Utah after suffering depression after her divorce. 

“And I just wanted to go talk to some people on how to pull myself out of a hole that I got stuck in, and I couldn’t pull myself out, and I just couldn’t see the light. And I had these two kids that I had to fight for and be the best person, and they always inspired me to be my best. And I needed help, so I started reaching out to different people, and eventually, I really made some big sweeping changes in my life and I got on a whole new track, not back on track, but a brand new one that I helped build,” Barrymore tearfully recalled on her show.
