If you take away the fact that she’s a multi-talented movie star, producer, former CoverGirl and current cosmetics mogul who got married in Chanel, we really have a ton in common with Drew Barrymore.

For instance, we share the same life motto. “I live for makeup and I like wine. These are my truths!” she says in the March issue of Harper’s Bazaar of the decision to start Flower Cosmetics and Barrymore Wines while pregnant with daughter Olive.

More revelations that we’re totally on board with? “I wear sweatpants that I find on the floor” (on why she didn’t want to start a fashion line, like many celebs) and “It’s my crusade to help women feel good about themselves” — something that we at PEOPLE StyleWatch fully relate to.

It’s to fulfill that mission that she started Flower in the first place, and why she’s been so involved in everything from the formula to the packaging: “It’s about … a girl watching her mom at a vanity table,” she says. “I wanted warmth and acceptance and self-love.” And if she achieves that with Flower while wearing homemade tie-dye yoga pants (you’ve got to read it to believe it), well, we’ll love her even more.
