Drew Barrymore can’t wait for Halloween, and she’s got a couple of reasons to be excited about it.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Barrymore revealed that the opportunity to go incognito during Halloween is one of the things she loves about the annual occasion.
“It’s like the best day ever,” said the 41-year-old actress at the annual Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles “Once Upon A Time Gala” on Saturday night. “I get to be an anonymous parent that night, so I’m into that!”
“It’s [also] the only day that’s acceptable and not totally creepy to wear a mask, so God bless Halloween! I love it,” added the “Charlie’s Angels” star.
When asked what her plans are for this year’s Halloween, the mom of two said: “We, as a family, have three dates for this Halloween.”
Barrymore and her former husband Will Kopelman have two daughters together: Olive Barrymore Kopelman, 4, and Frankie Barrymore Kopelman, 2.
Barrymore and Kopelman — son of former Chanel CEO Arie Kopelman — began dating in early 2011. They got engaged in January 2012 and married in June 2012 in Montecito, Calif., according to People. In April, however, Barrymore and Kopelman released a statement confirming they had separated and intended to divorce.
“Sadly our family is separating legally, although we do not feel this takes away from us being a family," the exes said in the statement. “Divorce might make one feel like a failure, but eventually you start to find grace in the idea that life goes on. Our children are our universe and we look forward to living the rest of our lives with them as the first priority.”
The pair’s divorce was finalized in August. Although Barrymore is no longer a Kopelman, the Golden Globe-winning actress still has a good relationship with her former mother-in-law. “[It] means the world to me,” she told Entertainment Tonight of the love and acceptance she receives from her children’s paternal grandmother.
Barrymore will be next seen on Netflix’s original comedy series “Santa Clarita Diet,” which will be released in 2017.
