Drew Barrymore's daughters are lucky girls: Not only is their mother one of the most famous actresses of her day, but their father, Will Kopelman, is a successful art consultant whose father was once the CEO of Chanel.

However, Barrymore insists that the girls will learn the importance of hard work.

"I would really like to raise kids to do summer jobs and intern, and understand that if you are supposed to be somewhere at 3 o┬╣clock, you need to be there at 3 o'clock," she told Redbook magazine.

Barrymore, 39, gave birth to her daughter Frankie last month. Her oldest child, Olive, is 19 months old.

Balancing motherhood with her career isn't always easy for Barrymore, she said, adding that "nobody gets to have it all." However, she makes sure to carve out time for those close to her, including her husband, Kopelman.

"Will [being with me], it does surprise me and it doesn't surprise me," she said. "However, knowing his personality and what he finds humorous and attractive and appealing, I'm like, 'Okay, got it!'"

She also makes time for her close-knit circle of girlfriends, which includes Cameron Diaz and Reese Witherspoon.

"I wish we could play more often, but everyone is so busy it's insane," she said. "But to go over to each other's houses on a Sunday to check-in -- just get on the phone and talk: 'How are you? Do you need anything?' -- really trying to be there is important. If I was ever in a bind, no one on the planet would have my back more than my friends."
