Cameron Diaz congratulates her best friend Drew Barrymore on her victory over alcohol addiction.
The host and actor broke down the timeline of his drug addiction in a candid interview Los Angeles Times.
The interview in question detailed the “hard way.”
Barrymore admits her troubles began after her 2016 split from Will Kopelman.
Also, Diaz and Barrymore were close at first for strangers, working at a coffee shop when they were 14 years old.
After Barrymore’s interview, even Diaz came forward to admit that the journey was “very difficult to watch” but “absolutely believed” in her ability to succeed.
He was quoted as saying, “But I knew if we all stood by him and gave him the support he needed, he would find his way, and I have full faith in him.”
“You can’t understand how difficult it must have been for her to be a child, and then she shot out the other end with her ability to save herself,” he added before concluding.
The turning point came when Barrymore had the rug pulled out from under her and once she discovered that famous psychoanalyst Barry Michels had stopped working with her after nearly a decade together.
“He just said, ‘I can’t do this anymore,'” she recalled in her first interview.
“It was really about my drinking. I understand. I never respected you. You see, I’m not getting better. I hope one day I can earn your trust back.”
But it didn’t start all at once, as only the 2019 contract of The Drew Barrymore Show brought it full circle.
I think the opportunity on a show like this really impressed me,” he admitted. I thought, “I can’t do this unless I’m in a really clear place.”
Two years after that mark, her therapist decided to take her on as a client, who started asking tough questions like, “You seem so inspired by others, but you look down on yourself***. When will you come to your senses?’
