Drew Barrymore gets personal with Tyler Perry
His greatest joy is being a father to his 7-year-old son, Aman Tyler, despite being an actor, filmmaker, producer, director, author, writer, Emmy winner, and too many other accomplishments to count.
Drew: Something I was reading about you that really emotionally affected me and I felt a very personal connection to which is that you were saying about your son that raising him is doing a tremendous amount of healing for you. Will you explain what that means?
Tyler: We look so much alike it’s like God gave me a mini version of me to give all the love to that I didn’t get as a child, to give all of the love and correction, the parenting, the compassion, all of the things I didn’t get and it’s so very difficult for me to even look at him and not see myself as a little boy, so every time I hug him there’s something in me that’s hugging myself. Every time I’m giving him anything, it takes it back to the little boy that I was because I endured a lot of horrible things as a kid, so to see him coming up with this protection and love of a father standing in front of him, it just does something for the little boy in me.
