They follow her around at work and love watching her movies! In a new interview with Good Morning America, Drew Barrymore revealed her kids, Olive Kopelman, 6, and Frankie Kopelman, 4, absolutely love watching their 44-year-old mama on the big screen!
“They love Ever After [and] 50 First Dates and it’s weird because if anyone comes over and my movie is playing I’m like, ‘I swear to God I’m not that ego jerk,'” Drew joked to Robin Roberts. “But they call it a ‘mom movie’ and they enjoy watching it and I’m proud of who I am and what I’ve done.” Watch Drew’s GMA interview in the video above!

So proud of my girl. She is in the spirit for @beautycon And today is a celebration of expression and artistry. I have loved make up my whole life. Grew up in a make up chair. Worked with all the best make up artists in my day. Learned so much. Was co creative director of Covergirl for seven years and then started @flowerbeauty almost 8 years ago and launched @walmart where everyone could attain and afford what I put my heart into. Now we are also in @ultabeauty and entering new territories and a new era. I’m very proud today. It’s been a long challenging road to maintain this company and stay true to ourselves and yet keep evolving in this Wild Wild West of beauty right now! And the world is better for it. Men and women from everywhere are welcome in the beauty world. It is so inclusive and warrants you to be the superhero you are! So thank you for having us. And here’s to all the boys and and girls who want to be beautiful… just the way they are! Or with a little help from some bad ass make up!
Although Drew’s oldest daughter Olive has seen her hit movie E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, she prefers her mom’s acting better in the 1985 movie The Goonies with Josh Brolin and Sean Astin. “Olive hasn’t really gravitated towards it as much as I would have thought so far,” she said about her daughter’s reaction to E.T. “But I think she’ll get back into it.”
As a successful Hollywood actress, Drew loves that her kids like to watch her movies. She just can’t imagine them becoming actresses at a young age like she did. “I’m not going to let them be kid actors,” she revealed in a previous interview with People. “That’s so not their journey.”

Before I left for Asia, I showed Olive where on the globe I was going. And now, at this moment, I came across an article by the great @anthonybourdain LINK IN BIO TO READ because it really moved me. It’s funny how we all arrange our travel. I came here for work, but on the off hours, I live for getting “local” and getting to know what a place is really like without the protection of the familiar. He has great tips and an even better philosophy. Take a moment to read his wisdom and style. It just might change your next life experience. #thailanddiaries
Instead, the proud mama has been having Olive follow her around at work to learn a thing or two about the entertainment industry. “I just like that she likes to hang with her mom. I love to have her at my job and I love that she likes being there,” Drew gushed on Instagram alongside a photo of her and her daughter in the hallway of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. “I look at this moment and think she is getting so big!”
