After all, they've made her the person she is today.

She said: “The low points I had all helped make up my character, so I probably wouldn’t want to do away with them because I like being flawed and I like having them help me grow and change and become better and stronger.”

Drew, 35, also refuses to blame her troubled parents, John and Jaid Barrymore, for anything that went wrong in her life. They both died as a result of their addiction problems and divorced when the actress was young.

The former child star added: “You can’t live your life blaming your failures on your parents and what they did or didn’t do for you.

“You’re dealt the cards that you’re dealt. I realized it was a waste of time to be angry at my parents and feel sorry for myself.”

Nowadays, Drew is happier than ever and feels proud of her accomplishments. She added in an interview with the Daily Telegraph website: “I feel really excited about the last few years of my life.

“I pride myself on them and I didn’t know I had that much discipline. I’ve worked really hard and got to do things I’ve always wanted to do and now I feel things are going really well. I just want to make sure I have a sense of balance between work and life, because work is my life and the lines can get really blurry.”
