“It was on your show, and I drank too much and I never forgave myself, and I will never forgive myself,” Barrymore, 45, told Cohen, 52, in an interview for his digital series. “The Drew Barrymore Show”.
“I’m an imperfect person, and I brag about that, and I’ve had this freedom since I was a kid because it was all there,” she added, referring to her famously uncontrollable years as a child star, which included a stint in rehab as a teenager after drug and alcohol abuse and suicide attempts. “And it was either hoohoo about it or saying, ‘God, it’s kind of redeemed that you don’t have to pretend you’re perfect.’ But I really want to apologize to you because I – I will never let that happen again. I am really sorry. ”
Cohen, for her part, shrugged off Barrymore’s apology, stating the obvious – that she is far from the first person to be visibly upset on “WWHL.”
“I’m used to people being over-served on my show, and so I don’t even really have a totally clear memory of it, but you don’t need to apologize to me for being over-served on my show. my show, it happens, ”he said. “You are in a big club of people.”
Barrymore can take notes for his own animated concert, which kicks off September 14. Her eponymous, hour-long nationally syndicated daytime show will be filmed in New York City and distributed by CBS.
