Drew Barrymore offered a thoughtful perspective on Father's Day and talked about what it was like growing up with her dad, actor John Drew Barrymore.

But his wildness runs through me," the actress said in an eloquent Instagram post. "His gifts are here. His demons to overcome are mine to break! I love him not for who I wanted him to be, but for who he was. ... My dad gave me the gift of life! A wicked sense of humor! And that wildness that I truly do cherish."
