Hollywood star Drew Barrymore, 41, admitted she knew her life was headed in a new direction, as she broke her silence following news of her split from husband Will Kopelman.In her first interview since the split, Drew said she hopes the couple's daughters - Olive, three, and 23-month-old Frankie - are not adversely affected by the breakdown of their parents' relationship."My life's mission and the only thing that matters as of now is that my daughters know what our lives were like, how we lived, and how much I love them," Barrymore told PopSugar.com."For them to know that they were not just loved, but, like, ridiculously, utterly, life-alteringly loved. That's the only reason I'm here now!"Drew spoke to the website as she attended the Pebble Beach Food & Wine Festival this weekend.She said she knew her marriage issues were coming to a head a few months ago, and called a close friend for some "physically productive and life-choice productive" advice."I had a really hard time a couple of months ago and kind of knew life was heading in a new direction," she said."I called someone that I really trust, respect, and believe in, because he has always been the conductor of grace. I said, 'What's your advice?' And he said, 'You put one foot in front of the other.' I hung up the phone and I thought, 'That is why I call this person.'"It's a kind of way in which to live, and I want to be like him. I want to be like that. I want to put one foot in front of the other."
According to reports, rows over where to live as a family - New York or California - was one of the deciding factors in their split.
