Drew Barrymore calls father's parenting was shocking
Since having her own children Drew Barrymore finds it even harder to empathize with her own father’s parental choices

Despite coming from what appears to be a close family of near-guaranteed generational actors, the Barrymore clan isn’t as bonded as you would expect for a family that follow in each other’s footsteps. Drew Barrymore has spoken out about her father John Barrymore’s distance from her throughout her child and his lack of support. Since starting her own family, his separation from them is even more incomprehensible to the actress.

Drew commented “My parents split up before I was born and my dad was just never capable of being a father. It's something I really accepted and became OK with early on.

But it's shocking to me that someone can make that choice. As much as I accepted it with him, I could never accept it in a partner...for some people showing up is just not possible and that is incredibly frustrating. When you become a parent, and think about what kids need, it is very emotional.”
