Drew Barrymore wants to work less

Drew Barrymore wants to focus on her family instead of working so much.

The 39-year-old actress - who welcomed second daughter Frankie into the world earlier this week - is ready to make changes to her life that will allow her to spend more time with husband Will Kopelman, their new baby and elder daughter Olive, 19 months.

She explained in an interview conducted before she gave birth: "I want to lead a very different kind of life and enjoy my time with my family.

"It's always been about film or a film production, producing, acting - every little detail that goes into film-making. I didn't know how to have a life under those circumstances.

"When you're on a film, you're in the middle of nowhere working 18 hours a day and it's really hard to have a life.

"I commend people who seem to balance it. I'm not sure how they do it."

Drew first took time out from work and decided to look elsewhere for fulfillment after a project collapsed and made her realize she could be happy with other things..

She told Britain's HELLO! magazine: "That was very frustrating, and I kind of saw that working all the time wasn't the answer for me. I took a trip to India and Bhutan and it was the kind of time you spend alone really thinking about your life.

"I decided I needed to take a break and change things. You're afraid to let go of the life you've gotten used to, but taking that time away from work was probably what led to the place where I was ready to meet my husband and figure out how to be happy with him and also to be a good mom."
