The separation initially cast doubt on her hopes for her children.

"I think that's why I took (the divorce) so hard," she explained. "I was, oh, the ultimate promise I wanted to make to you and for you was to have this amazing family. And I found them. And there is something that doesn't work and isn't worth living. How tragic is the?"

Ultimately, Barrymore and Kopelman, who she married in 2012 after marrying bar owner Jeremy Thomas and comedian Tom Green, found a way to get together for the good of their children.

"But the good news is that his family and I made the most important decision: to be so together and united and connected," said Barrymore. “They call that family. I don't know from any family that the last thing I wanted to do for my daughters was. "

Thinking about the split has, of course, proven challenging. Barrymore told Geist it took her five years to “speak with strength, articulation, perspective and review and see everything we did right,” adding, “When we got divorced, this is how it felt like everything is just wrong. I think it applies to anyone who believes that something will and will not be forever. It's so tough. "

Barrymore is now firmly established both personally and professionally, and says her daughters have grown to be her greatest supporters.

"Like a divorce, things finally fell apart," said Barrymore. "It is amazing that my children and I are happy. Because I have often asked," Will we be happy? "And we are. So this is suffocating me."
