Drew shares two young daughters— Olive, eight, and Frankie, six — with her ex-husband Will Kopelman.

According to her, the kids have seen some of her best-loved and critically appraised films, including Steven Spielberg’s E.T.: The Extraterrestrial, her Adam Sandler romantic comedy 50 First Dates and her high school–set rom-com Never Been Kissed, all of which left them cold.

Hugh, 60, was shocked when he asked Drew if the girls had enjoyed the movie they made together, Music and Lyrics.

She admitted: ‘You know, I don’t think they’ve seen it, crazy enough.’

However, the Donnie Darko actress doesn’t think their distaste for her work will last forever. 

‘This is like phases of their life,’ she mused. ‘They’ll come around.’

Meanwhile, Drew previously admitted that, while she’s happy to speak about her own life, she tries to be more responsible about sharing when it comes to her children.

‘My life with my children, my feelings, that’s all on the table — but [Olive and Frankie themselves] are not,’ she said on her new talk show The Drew Barrymore Show.

‘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. 

‘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.’

They'll grow out of it: However, the Donnie Darko actress doesn't think their distaste for her work will last forever. 'This is like phases of their life,' she mused. 'They'll come around'

Drew hasn’t been shy about digging into her iconic film roles to promote her talk show.

Her promos ahead of its debut featured recycled footage of her as a child from her well-received appearance on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson to promote E.T.

She’s also interviewed herself while playing her Never Been Kissed character Josie Grossie, who was still stuck in the late 1980s.

In the romantic comedy, the age-defying actress played a newspaper copy editor who hasn’t found romance in her life yet.

When she takes up an assignment to pose as a high schooler, she finds herself falling back into the same patterns that made her early life so painful.
