Just let that sink in a minute. OK, now back to it: With a little over two months to go before she hits the big four-oh, Barrymore is taking stock. “I’m so excited,” she tells E! News. “I finally feel the age that I am and I’ll tell you why. I always felt older than the number I was. I was always too mature and adult and raising myself or running a company or I’m only 19 and I’m a homeowner. Forty feels like where I’m at. It makes sense.” There are a few other things she was doing at a young age that didn’t quite fit, but they mostly involve hard drugs and hanging out with Ween. They grow up so fast, right?
