By Tribute News on April 28, 2014 | 1 Comment
Drew Barrymore finds it ''shocking'' that her father walked away from his family. The 39-year-old actress - who gave birth to her second daughter, Frankie, last week - insists she is ''okay'' with the fact her dad John Barrymore wasn't around for her and her mother Jaid very much when she was a child but can't understand his actions. She said: ''My parents split up before I was born and my dad was just never capable of being a father. It's something I really accepted and became okay with early on. But it's shocking to me that someone can make that choice. As much as I accepted it with him, I could never accept it in a partner... for some people showing up is just not possible and that is incredibly frustrating. When you become a parent, and think about what kids need, it is very emotional.'' The actress also has 19-month-old daughter Olive with husband Will Kopelman.
