When it comes to being a celebrity, most people thing that you have everything together and taken care of.
It can be hard to remember that they aren't the glamorous people we seen on TV all the time, and while they might look fancy on the red carpet or in the movies, they usually have a team of people who make it happen.
Drew Barrymore has been a star since she was just a small child, and because of this, she has spent a lot of time getting criticized by the public. But instead of letting it get to her, she shows people what it's really like to be a star.
In a recent post on the actress' Instagram, she shared a set of two photos. The first, is a photo where she looks like how most of us picture her. She's made up, has her hair done, and is smiling. But it's the second photo that's catching people's attention.
The no-makeup selfie is taken while she's in her bathroom crying. Her hair is no longer done up and she looks very much like any regular person going through a hard time.
Her comment with the post is very inspiring. She writes:
"What I propose some days are great and beautiful.
Sure, I can be this with two hours of hair and makeup and amazing photography and lighting. I also feel beautiful after a sweaty workout...But it all takes work!
Which is good because we can achieve it.
What I can't hide is that some days are difficult and not so pretty... (swipe for photo #2 and I realize I am lucky with solvable problems and my gratitude is never ending. But sometimes life can just get to you and take you down for a minute! But we cry and then pick ourselves up and put one foot in front of the other)
Can anyone relate?"
We've all had those days where we feel down or angry, and it's nice to see that the stars that we all idolize feel the same way. They really are just normal people who have chosen a career that puts them in the public eye.
