As a frequent guest on daytime and primetime talk shows over the decades, Barrymore has honed her skills as an interviewer. She explained:

I learned to become a better listener. In the beginning, I over-talked to people, which I felt embarrassed about. There’s an art figuring out how to navigate a conversation — and when to stop talking.

Barrymore would love to have Britney Spears on The Drew Barrymore Show. The two have much in common, having both started out as child stars and grown up in the glare of the limelight. 

The Charlie's Angels star said, that although she has not yet asked Spears to appear on her program, she believes that they could have an "openhearted" chat. Barrymore mused:

We can have a unique conversation. There’s not a ton of us out there who have publicly lost our freedom, had breakdowns in front of everyone, become punchlines and fought our way back.
