The mother of two told Savannah Guthrie of the "Today Show" in November that she's been eager to reach the milestone:

"I'm so relieved to be 40. I've already started saying I'm 40 and my husband's like, 'Honey, you're still 39. Why are you saying you're 40?' I'm just so excited, I really am. It feels good. It feels right."

When Guthrie asked Barrymore what she would tell her 20-year-old self if she could, the actress quipped, "I don't think she would have listened. I know that I would be wasting my breath."

Happy belated, Drew!
