Last September, the talk show host opened up to PEOPLE about what it was like growing up in the entertainment industry, and how she got to where she is now.

"I started [in this industry] when I was in diapers," she said. "At 13, it was that sad sob story. And then I picked myself back up. I've been married, I've gotten divorced, I've raised myself, for better or worse. I have these two girls who are my entire universe. And it has all been out there."

Barrymore went on to share why she's an open book with her own life, but chooses to keep her daughters away from the spotlight.

"My life with my children, my feelings, that's all on the table — but [Olive and Frankie themselves] are not," she said. "Because of my life experiences, I'm not selling my brand on my kids. I won't do it."

"But to ignore that part of my life would make me an automaton," she continued. "So it's really inventive to figure out how to bring them into the omelet and fold it in, in a way that feels appropriate for me."
