Drew Barrymore is taking a trip down memory lane.

The actress is on multiple covers of InStyle's February edition, recreating some of her most memorable childhood looks.

"We are recreating looks from a very specific time period in my life from when I'm about five to 10, which would be about 1980 to 1985," Drew shares with the magazine.

Holding a photo of herself in a pink hat, Drew explains that this a pic of her from a photo shoot in 1984 when she was nine.

In the photo above, Drew is holding a picture of herself from 1983.

"This was me in 1983 at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles where the Golden Globes take place every year at the mother-daughter fashion show...but I'm dressed like the mother," Drew says. "I loved when I first unearthed this photo because I was like, 'Are you kidding me that is my daughter Olive's body.' Like genetics are crazy, this is Olive, 100 percent."

Drew grew up in the spotlight, working as an actress from a very young age.

"From a young age I was overly passionate and thought everything lived and died in a professional atmosphere because, back then, it was really all I had," Drew shares with InStyle. "I didn't have a family. I've been working as long as I can remember."

Drew's career continues to flourish today, both in the acting world and outside of it. And she's a mom to two young girls, Olive and Frankie, with whom she shares with ex-husband Will Kopleman.

Talking about her love life, Drew shares, "My daughters are so fulfilling that I feel like my cup is just avalanching over. If love took on a physical analogy form, I'd be an overstuffed turkey or a piñata. So I'm not really hungry for it at this moment."

She adds, "I don't think I would have ever known that I could be this content, this whole, without being in a romantic relationship. That would have been a surprise to my younger self."

Drew has been through a lot over the years and in the process has grown and learned a lot. Giving an insight into her personality today, Drew shares with the magazine, "...I definitely have a ferociousness. And I've always had it. I completely rebel against authority. Scrappy. I am very f--king scrappy."
