Protective of her family unit, Drew has said that she would "fight like a lion" to protect the newborn, ensuring that she would not experience a traumatic childhood like her own. Speaking to Good Housekeeping, the star revealed: "I will literally fight like a lion to keep my family happy and intact. Maybe I wouldn't feel that way if I had a great family growing up." Now immersed in family life, this is a rare outing for the Never Been Kissed actress. Speaking of the period around Olive's birth, the star said: "I didn't go out for six or seven months. It was really nice to just get quiet. I cleaned out every single drawer in my house. I went through the storage units. "That's how I lived my days. They say cats run around shredding paper before they're about the give birth. That's exactly how I was."
Beginning her acting career when she was just three years old, Drew is one of Hollywood's most enduring child stars. Stardom came by seven years old, and the actress struggled to cope with fame and experienced a troubled adolescence. Things took a brighter turn aged fifteen, and she purchased an apartment in LA on her own when she was declared an emancipated minor. Seventeen years on, Drew can now claim her own fairytale ending. The star began dating art consultant Will, son of former Chanel CEO Arie Kopelman in January 2011. Two of the actresses' most joyful moments came a year later when she announced that she would be expecting her first child, and tying the knot in a summer wedding at her California mansion. Sharing her big day with HELLO!, the actress opted for a Chanel gown in homage to her father-in-law. The pair's happiness was sealed when they welcomed "happy and healthy" Olive Barrymore Kopelman into the world in September 2012.
