After more than 35 years in Hollywood, Drew Barrymore is putting her acting career on the back burner.
In a new interview with E! Online, the 40-year-old actress admitted she's been turning down "a lot" of movie roles to instead focus on raising her two daughters and running her cosmetics brand, Flower.

"Flower has changed my life because it lets me be a mom the way I want to be and I still get to do something meaningful and think about girls and women and empowering messages. I love movies but the hours right now for where my kids are in their life, it's few and far between that I'll work," Drew said.

The actress and her husband, Will Kopelman, 38, are parents to two daughters, Olive Barrymore Kopelman, 2, and Frankie Barrymore Kopelman, 16 months.
"Flower beauty is a fulltime job. We do a lot of traveling for it. I do a lot of press. I go to labs all over the country, truly seeking out the most innovative things," Drew continued.

Last month, the 50 First Dates star announced her brand — named for her production company Flower Films — would be expanding to include a new line of eyewear to be sold exclusively at Walmart.
"Drew is involved in every detail," Carmen Bauza, Walmart's senior vice president of health and wellness, said. "It's not like she's managing from somewhere out there and has someone else doing it. I know when it hits the shelves, it's got her seal of approval and that gives me peace of mind."
