It was always something new with Drew Barrymore back in the day, and the actress is reflecting on the times where she may have taken things a little too far!

Drew Barrymore reflects on her past

Sitting down with CBS Sunday Morning, Drew Barrymore is reflecting on her past, and how far she's come, despite her outlandish talk-show moments!

The mother of two is releasing her very own talk show on Monday, The Drew Barrymore Show, and is sharing how her past is shaping her future!

Drew Barrymore attends Netflix's "Santa Clarita Diet" Season 3 Premiere.

"I pushed the limits a lot, many different times in my life," she said to the host. "And I'm very lucky, I know that. I tested, I pushed, probably too far many a time... I at least tried to meet that blessing with having learned something."

Looking back at her infamous David Letterman appearance in 1995, when she stood on the table and flashed the talk show host, Barrymore said she's learned there is such a thing as "too much."

"I think if there's one thing I've learned in a very long life in front of people, is there is a line. There is TMI. And I kind of know what that line is, and it's a feeling," she said.

Barrymore also said she reached out to Letterman and others asking for advice regarding her own talk show. Many of them said to take it one day at a time.

"They all say pace yourself," she said. "Which, of course, I in my stubbornness was like, 'I've been working since I was 11 months old! You don't even know my work ethic!"

Back in 2018, Barrymore said while on Stephen Colbert's talk show, her infamous flashing moment "doesn't feel like her."

"It’s like a distant memory that doesn’t seem like me — but it is me," she told Colbert at the time.

"And that’s kind of cool. I’m still down with that. I’m a mother of two … I’m such a different person now that it doesn’t feel like me, but I’m still into it. You only have one life!"
