Drew Barrymore says she’s cutting down on show business to raise her daughters. In an interview on Friday’s “Today Show,” the actress explained that she would rather be there for the children than in front of the camera.

“I think I will act less and less” says Barrymore. “It’s hard to be present when you wake up before them and come home after they’ve gone to bed. That’s just not the way I want to have this journey with my kids at this point in their life. But maybe when they’re older, I will feel differently. But at this point, I think it has to be few and far between.”

The star calls herself a “traditional” mom. Barrymore explains, “I’m not organized in my life. I lose everything and I’m a complete disaster. With my kids, I really kind of don’t accept that from myself because I think kids learn from example of the way you live your life… I had a very untraditional upbringing, so I looked at it from afar and just thought, ‘Well that’s the exact opposite of how I’d want to raise my kids.'” Check out the video below, and tell us what you think of what Barrymore has to say.
