Drew Barrymore Says Her Daughters Discovered Her Movies on Their Own, Reveals Their Favorites
At only 8 and 10 years old, Drew Barrymore's girls already have a stacked repertoire of classic movies under their belt — including some that feature their mom. While speaking to PEOPLE about her partnership with OLLY, the actress, 48, shared that her daughters love to watch movies, and have even discovered some of their mom's films on their own. "They call them 'mom movies,' and I definitely didn't force them on them. They've discovered them on their own," Barrymore tells PEOPLE of daughters Olive, 10, and Frankie, 8. "They know how to navigate iTunes, and then they would watch them, and if they really like them, as all kids do, they watch it over and over and then they move on to the next thing." "I'm happy I just let them discover it on their own. I don't want to force them into it," she adds. As for which "mom movies" are her daughters' favorites? "They were definitely into Ever After and 50 First Dates for a while," she shares. "Those were fun phases." "The whole, I don't let my kids watch television was never me as a parent," she continues. "We love to watch movies. Olive has watched Everything Everywhere All At Once many times." "They're both very cool customers," she says of her girls, whom she shares with ex Will Kopelman. "We did a lot of Sesame Street growing up, and then we kind of went to '80s movies, and I tried to show them a lot of classics. So I try to curate for them. And we do love comedies. It really depends on the day." When they're not viewing movies on weekends, Barrymore tells PEOPLE her routine at home with her daughters is "very consistent." "On the weekends, I try to have more of a spontaneity and free for all. But during the week it's like, come home from after-school activities, like music, dance, Hebrew school, whatever's on the menu that day, and then it's dinner, bath, bed, reading. If there's free time, cartoons and an episode of something. It's very ritualistic."
