Drew Barrymore’s ‘Playboy’ Past Circles Back: Actress Reveals How Her Daughter Brings It Up During Arguments

Drew Barrymore once featured on the cover of “Playboy” magazine. Even today, she has to face her past, not from the media, but from her daughter! Yes, Drew’s daughter brings up her sketchy past whenever she says no to the young one wearing crop tops. And that’s how Barrymore loses the argument, every single time!

Can’t Say No to Crop Tops Anymore

According to Drew, when her daughter wants to wear crop tops, she goes, “No.” But the little one brings up her “Playboy” cover to end the conversation. “But you were on the cover of Playboy,” she argues, and Drew reveals that she loses the fight.

In a recent episode of “The Drew Barrymore Show,” Christina Aguilera was the guest. Both talented artists start whiffing about their children and parenting techniques. That is when Drew makes this revelation.

Drew has two daughters aged 11 and 9, Olive and Frankie, whom she co-parents with Will Kopelman, her ex-husband. The girls have begun experimenting with fashion trends and wish to wear crop tops. But Drew feels they are too young to be sporting such revealing clothes. As she voices her opinions, her daughter shuts her up by bringing up the 1995 Playboy issue with Drew on the cover.

Christina Agrees with Drew Barrymore

The “Genie in a Bottle” singer says that she understands. Christina admits that she is well aware that even her racy past might come up with her own daughter. She has a 9-year-old girl who is into similar conversations. 

Referring to her bold 2000s look-baring midriff, Christina told Drew, “I knew it was coming the day I wore chaps.” When her daughter wants to wear crop tops, she says, “Can we just pull it down?”

Being True to Oneself Is Important

On a final note, the two moms agree that being authentic is the best thing. Drew says she doesn’t regret being on the Playboy cover. “I loved every minute of shooting it,” she says about the risqué spread. Christina seconds her, “We were expressing ourselves and how we felt was best for us I think at the time.”

However, some people might have bad intentions and that’s what they want to explain to their girls. “Don’t do it for someone else,” Drew Barrymore closes, saying it is all about empowering their daughters. It is crucial in this era of self-acceptance and standing up to body shaming and bullying. The point of any tricky conversation is to encourage young women to embrace their bodies.
