Drew Barrymore: Nude Playboy Photo Shoot A Big No For Daughter

Drew Barrymore: Nude Playboy Photo Shoot A Big No For Daughter

For Drew Barrymore, nude Playboy photo shoots are something she hopes her daughters never desire.

In a related story from The Inquisitr, Barrymore is six months pregnant with her second daughter and she’s been fighting weight gain and food cravings.

Besides the obvious changes to her belly, Drew Barrymore’s daughter Olive has changed her emotionally and mentally, as well. While the baby is only 15 months old, Barrymore was asked in an interview whether she would ever allow her children to pose naked in Playboy once they reach the age of adulthood. She shot down that idea instantly:

“I would not let her. I don’t think I would. I would influence her not to, because my life choices are supposed to be the gateway to somebody else’s. That’s my journey. The best kind of parent you can be is to lead by example. Whatever I’ve experienced in my life is a part of my story, and I’m proud of that. But it’s someone who wakes up early, works all day, believes in charitable work, business-minded, diligent, accountable, problem-solving… I’m so much about school, consistency and tradition.”

Unfortunately, the example set for Olive includes a Playboy photo shoot that featured Drew Barrymore nude when she was age 19. The ET child star also had a rough childhood that included drugs, alcohol, and suicide attempts. But even though the actress is 38 now she continued doing nude photos shoots and movie roles all the way up to age 28, although none of the latter examples were explicit.

Still, American photographer Sante D’ Orazio shot Drew Barrymore topless in 2000 and from 1993 through 1995 she was naked for her roles in the movies Doppelganger, Bad Girls, and Boys On The Side. Funnily enough, at age 20 Steven Spielberg, who was is her godfather, sent her a quilt for her birthday along with a note that said, “Cover yourself up.” He even included versions of the Playboy photos which were altered to make her appear fully clothed.

Still, these past experiences do not make her cringe at the thought:

I celebrate that I had any sense of freedoms at a certain point, because I don’t feel like that now. I love the very exposed, humorous, imperfect, never trying to pretend to be perfect journey that I have been on in my life.”
