In September, Barrymore explained to PEOPLE why she chooses to keep her children out of the spotlight while also being open and honest about her personal life.
"My life with my children, my feelings, that's all on the table — but [Olive and Frankie themselves] are not," she said at the time. "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.
