Los Angeles, Feb 2 (IANS) Actress Drew Barrymore says she doesn't want her daughter to have an "exposed" childhood as she did.

The actress rose to fame at the age of seven with "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial" and was admitted to rehab when she was 13.

"I had such an exposed childhood. I appreciate my journey, but I don't want that for my kid. Not any of it," Barrymore, who has a four-month-old daughter with husband Will Kopelman, told Harper's Bazaar magazine, reports

"It has nothing to do with whether I liked my childhood. I really did. But as a parent, that isn't the childhood that I'd provide. Because I live my life in the public eye, I didn't want that for her. I know she didn't sign up for that.

"Unless I move into a bunker underground, I don't have a choice in this matter. It was something that took me weeks to cope with," she added.
