Drew Barrymore on New Film With Adam Sandler, Motherhood and New Book

This morning Good Morning America did a feature on Drew and her new book “Find It In Everything”.

Actress Drew Barrymore loves hearts, so much so that they’re the focus of her new book.

Barrymore’s latest endeavor is “Find It In Everything,” a collection of her photographs of hearts – a shape she says has inspired her for nearly 30 years.

“I started finding hearts in things – whether it was like, a tree I was passing, a straw wrapper on the ground, I think the heart has one continuous line, which is very powerful,” she said in an interview with ABC News’ Amy Robach.

Photography has a special effect on her.

“In a world and a life that moves so fast, photography just makes the sound go out and it makes you stop and take a pause. Photography calms me.”

The book is the “Charlie’s Angels” star’s latest endeavor, although she calls motherhood the role of a lifetime.

Barrymore, 38, who is married to art consultant Will Kopelman, spends her days chasing after her 18-month-old daughter, Olive, while awaiting the birth of baby number two.

“It’s a ride. I’m tired, but it’s the best ride I’ve ever been on in my life,” she said.

Barrymore has come a long way from the child star who captivated audiences in the blockbuster film, “E.T.,” and then made headlines for her wild behavior – including drug and alcohol addiction, partying and stints in rehab — as she grew up.

She attempted suicide, and became emancipated from her parents when she was 15 years old.

Asked if she ever looked back on her past and wondered how she got to where she is today, Barrymore replied: “I love the wonderful, awkward journey that I’ve been on in my life. I never have to worry that, like, I didn’t get anything out of my system.”

The photography book isn’t Barrymore’s only new project.

She is gearing up for the summer release of “Blended,” her third romantic comedy with Adam Sandler, and says she believes she and Sandler work well together.

“I think we challenge each other,” she said.

Barrymore is also taking cooking classes. “I’m not good at it, but I love it so much,” she said.
