Full story

During an interview on "The View," Barrymore discussed converting to Judaism and her decision to raise her newborn within the religion.


“I'm a shiksa. I do the seders and we do Passover," she said.


"I haven't converted yet, (but) Olive will be raised traditionally. We had a very traditional wedding ceremony with Rabbi Rubenstein and I did the ketubah. We wore the yarmulkes and we did the chuppah."


"I'm there, I love it! It's a beautiful faith and I'm so honored to be around it. It's so family-oriented... The stories are so beautiful and it's incredibly enlightening. I'm really happy."


Barrymore’s daughter, Olive, is only a few months old, born in October 2012. She is the actress’s first child.
