At one point she said: "I over talk and I share things that make people feel uncomfortable."

While being dressed for the show Drew also admitted: "I hate the sound of my own voice" and even went  so far as to say: "There’s so much going on in my head about how much I dislike myself as a human being, and this is really hard."

Her revelations were filmed as part of her digital docuseries, The Making Of, during which she also spoke candidly in a taped interview.

"I have worked so hard at things because I am full of flaws," she said. "Oh my god, I'm so screwed up. I'm so imperfect.

"I’ve been so broken so many times in my life, and yet none of that can be an excuse to stay that way or to be upset or angry or ever take that out on anyone else. Or to have that be a reason that you can't get out of that and go to the next place.
