Los Angeles: Actress Drew Barrymore, who gave birth to her first child, daughter Olive, last September, feels motherhood is all about sacrifices and women can`t have it all.The 38-year-old said she has had to cut back on work since starting a family but has no regrets, reported Us magazine.
"You know that you`re going to miss out on your child`s upbringing or you see that your relationship is going to suffer if you work night and day and weekends. Unfortunately, I was raised in this like generation of like, `Women can have it all,` and I don`t think you can.
"I think some things fall off the table. The good news is, what does stay on the table becomes much more important. You`ve got to choose your battles, definitely," she said.
Barrymore has decided to step back from directing and cut down on her acting roles but insists she will return once Olive gets older.
"I would miss out on my daughter. I can`t do it... It was heartbreaking to let go, but it was a clear choice. As my daughter gets older, I`ll slowly get back into it. I`m never not going to be who I am. I`ll never abandon ship completely. Life does take different turns and it`s really wild."
