The below Drew Barrymore interview with Ellen was brought to my attention the other day by my effervescent friend, B.
After an extremely tumultuous childhood and early adulthood, Drew’s come a long way. The interview really portrays just how far she’s come and most importantly, how comfortable she is at where she is in life.
I highly recommend that you watch it but if you don’t, at least skip to 1:13.
Her happiness is highly infectious.
After years of battling with drugs, alcohol and a nutbag for a mum you just want to give her a squishy hug and say, “You deserve this…”
Having well settled into my 40’s myself, it’s empowering to see other women finally feel comfortable in their age.
Whether a woman – any woman – wants to reveal it or not, the important thing is that at some point in her journey she’s found contentment.
Who cares if Rebel Wilson is actually 36 not 29?
Are we really that gullible to think that every one in Hollywood is honest about their age?
All I care about is that Rebel makes me laugh. So hard.
And that she carries herself (as well as those nunchucks) with fiery spunk.
Who wouldn’t want a piece of that sassy self-confidence?
Isn’t that what we should be celebrating, encouraging each other to achieve?
To eventually be comfortable in our skin.
No matter at what age.
Do you feel your age has caught up with where you are in life? When do you feel most comfortable in your skin? Ever had a go at nunchucks?
