Drew Barrymore recently revealed that she’d definitely have some reservations about her daughter posing for the infamous Playboy magazine.

On Jan. 14, the¬†six-months pregnant actress sat down for an interview with ABC News’ Amy Robach. The two discussed a number of interesting topics from Barrymore’s upcoming projects, to her personal life and growing up in the film industry.

Barrymore also shared her sentiments of motherhood, expressing how its changed her perspective on a number of issues and experiences had throughout her life. Although she has “no¬†regrets,” the¬†maternal role has made her re-evaluate some of the things she’s done in her life.¬†However, when asked if she ever had any past experiences that now make her ‘cringe,’ she replied by simply saying, “No.”

“I celebrate that I had any sense of freedoms at a certain point, because I don’t feel like that now,” she explained. I love the very exposed, humorous, imperfect, never trying to pretend to be perfect journey that I have been on in my life.”

For those who aren’t familiar with Barrymore’s turbulent¬†past, here’s the gist. The¬†E.T. child star¬†entered rehab at the age of 13 for¬†alcohol and drug abuse. Then, she later¬†attempted suicide¬†and ultimately became¬†emancipated from her parents at the age of 15. By 19, she had posed for Playboy and had married and divorced her first husband Jeremy Thomas. She is still estranged from her mother Jaid Barrymore. Her father John Drew Barrymore died in 2004.

Then, the actress was asked if she’d allow her daughter Olive¬†to one day pose Playboy. She adamantly declared that she would forbid it.

“What if Olive comes to you at 18 or 19 and says, ‘Mom, I want to pose for¬† Playboy?’” Robach asked.¬†”I would not let her,” Barrymore said. “I don’t think I would. I would¬† influence her not to, because my life choices are supposed to be the gateway to¬† somebody else’s. That’s my journey.”

“I have no regrets in my life whatsoever,” the Big Miracle star¬† explained. “I’m psyched about it all. I’m just in such a different mind frame.¬† I’m in mom mode now.”

Robach concluded by asking Barrymore if she’d ever “looked back on her past and wondered how she got to where she is today.” The 38-year-old actress said, “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.”

Barrymore married art consultant Will Kopelman on June 2, 2012. The couple has a 2-year-old daughter named Olive, with a second daughter on the way this spring.

  • What I don’t understand?

    I can pull up millions of women getting naked on the internet. Literally millions. I think we are fooling ourselves as to what is going on in society. What I find hypocritical is that Drew used sex to launch her career and so did Angelina Jolie and a host of other women, then when they get old they tell everyone to not do what they did. It is jealousy really. Jealous that they can’t do it anymore. So these women made millions off their sexuality then they all of sudden draw the line in the sand.

    It is all nonsense. Every young woman in hollwood is using sex to get ahead. If they aren’t doing it through nude pics they are doing it through constant selfie’s that show how sexy they are. Even the Disney starlets immediately go for sexy as soon as they can. Look at the girls on that channel. When I grew up girls did not look like that and they did things like climb trees — girls dont do that anymore. The take selfies and screw.
