Drew Barrymore has a lot on her plate: She’s not just an actress and entrepreneur (hello, Flower Beauty and Flower Home), she’s also a doting mom to two daughters, Olive, 6, and Frankie, 5.

We caught up with Barrymore for an in-person chat in New York City to discuss her new partnership with Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank and Emsculpt, a revolutionary new treatment that builds muscle and burns fat to sculpt your body and help you achieve out-of-reach fitness goals. Naturally, we had to ask: If she had to choose a former costar to babysit her girls (to give herself a well-deserved night off), who would she speed-dial first?

The Santa Clarita Diet star didn’t miss a beat. “Definitely Adam Sandler. He’s got two girls and he’s a great dad,” Barrymore said of her Wedding Singer, 50 First Dates and Blended costar. 

She then added that, when it comes to babysitting reinforcements, it’d actually be a close tie between Sandler and her Charlie’s Angels costar Cameron Diaz. “She’s so precise about everything. This is a woman you want in your daily life or any crisis or situation.”

Another quality working in Diaz’s favor? “Cameron is Frankie’s godmother, too,” Barrymore added.

Impressive babysitting qualifications, Sandler and Diaz. Just imagine if they decided to tag-team.
