Drew Barrymore shares encouraging message about life with photo of herself in tears to reveal even Hollywood has its lows
The vulnerable nature of her post prompted a number of fans to flood her with all sorts of encouraging comments, some even sharing their own personal experiences
Drew Barrymore has come up with a powerful message for all her fans going through a hard time in their life. On Thursday, the '50 First Dates' actress shared two pictures on Instagram, one of which showed her with a fresh blowout and a perfectly made-up face.
The other photo, shockingly, showed a completely different side of the actress, who appeared to be crying with tears in her eyes. The 'Santa Clarita Diet' star posted the second photo to show her millions of fans and followers that not even Hollywood glamour can hide all problems.
"What I propose some days are great and beautiful," Barrymore captioned the shot. "Sure, I can be this with two hours of hair and makeup and amazing photography and lighting. I also feel beautiful after a sweaty workout…"
"But it all takes work!" the actress continued. "Which is good because we can achieve it. What I can’t hide is that some days are difficult and not so pretty," Barrymore wrote in reference to the shot of her weeping. "But it all takes work!" the actress continued. "Which is good because we can achieve it. What I can’t hide is that some days are difficult and not so pretty," Barrymore added.
"But sometimes life can just get to you and take you down for a minute! But we cry and then pick ourselves up and put one foot in front of the other," Barrymore said. The vulnerable nature of her post prompted a number of fans to flood her with all sorts of encouraging comments, some even sharing their own personal experiences.
"Thanks for posting this I feel like this sometimes, but I just have to keep going," a fan wrote. "Thank you for being so human. You’ve always been such a great inspiration to me! You radiate so much light and positivity. Such a lovely soul," another user expressed.
The actress' message comes about two years after she announced to the world that she was separating from her husband Will Kopelman after four years of marriage. After news of their divorce spread like wildfire, Barrymore revealed that she went into a really dark place until her Netflix series 'Santa Clarita Diet' came along.
She shared, "I had actually stopped acting for several years because I wanted to raise my kids. But then a shift happened in my life and I was separating from their father and it was just a very difficult time. I definitely personally was in a very dark and fearful place and then this script came along and I was like, 'Yeah I don’t think this is a good time' and ironically, I think it taught me a valuable life lesson."
