Drew Barrymore apparently got too close for comfort on Sunday as she was pulled back by one of her children during a walk through the streets of New York City.

The 45-year-old actress was taking a stroll with her daughters Olive, aged eight, and Frankie, aged six, when she ran into a friend of hers, whom she attempted to greet with a hug.

When the talk show host would not let go of her pal, Olive sprang into action and pulled her mom back in an effort to get her to continue their shared walk.

Barrymore was dressed in a tan fleece sweater underneath a hooded and sleeveless blue vest to keep herself comfortable in the chilly New York City temperatures.

She also wore a set of white joggers and brown boots to make sure that her body was entirely covered during the walk.

The actress was pictured wearing a black-and-white beanie on top of her typically flowing blonde hair.

In an interview with Health, the Charlie’s Angels actress spoke about how she tries to ensure that her children are aware of the goings-on around the world in a manner that does not make them any less excited to grow up. 

‘I am extremely honest, and I try to be honest in a way that doesn’t scare them. What I do not want to do is take my kids’ sense of security and safety away—that’s me robbing them of something by keeping them informed,’ she noted.

Barrymore also elaborated on why she attempts to keep her relationship with her children out of the public eye and what her desired goal for her efforts is. 

‘I want to keep them kids as long as possible, and that’s why I’m really protective about putting them out there in the world…I’d rather have my kids know more about the world than show my kids to the world.’
