In a revealing new interview, Drew Barrymore, 39, dishes on being a mom to two young daughters — Olive, 2, and Frankie, 7 months — and reveals she's planning to give Hollywood a break to raise them.
"I think I will act less and less...I find the hours at this point in my life too difficult with kids," she told 'TODAY'. "It's hard to be present when you wake up before them and come home after they've gone to bed. That's just not the way I want to have this journey with my kids at this point in their life. But maybe when they're older, I will feel differently."
As for how she plans to raise them, it will be much different than what she experienced during her own turbulent childhood.

"I had a very untraditional upbringing, so I looked at it from afar and just thought, 'Well that's the exact opposite of how I'd want to raise my kids.' But it doesn't make me bummed out that I didn't have parents. It's like, thank God that I didn't because maybe I wouldn't be this aggressively excited about tradition and values and Christmas cards and Halloween costumes... and being so present," she told Savannah Guthrie.
The actress also said she's "open-minded" to having more children with her husband Will Kopelman in the future.
"We're really happy with where we are... So I think if we got pregnant we'd be the happiest people on Earth, and then we'd just feel even luckier. I think we'd also be completely content to stay right where we are," said Drew, who married the art consultant in June 2012.

"I'm so relieved to be 40," the 'Charlie's Angels' star said of her upcoming birthday. "I've already started saying I'm 40 and my husband's like, 'Honey, you're still 39. Why are you saying you're 40?'... I'm just so excited! It feels good. It feels right."
