Drew Barrymore tried to 'numb the pain' by drinking after divorce

In a new interview with Humans magazine, Barrymore opened up about how her long-awaited dream of a family

of her own slowly crumbled after she divorced her ex-husband Will Kopelman in 2016.

"After the life I planned for my kids wasn't a training session, I almost think it became more difficult than the things 

It was It became these kids that I cared so much about. And then I probably cared so much

 that it was better to give to them and not take care of myself.

 It became a messy, painful, excruciating walk around the house and they're back to life

Barrymore has two children with Kopelman, daughters Olive and Frankie, aged 10 and 8 respectively.

When he opened up about his divorce from her, Barrymore said he didn't get dramatic or far-fetched anymore.
