DREW Barrymore may have posed for Playboy magazine when she was 19 years old, but she won't be letting her daughter do the same.

The 'Big Miracle' actress - who is pregnant with her second child, a sibling for 15-month-old Olive - bared all for the adult publication at the age of 19 and hopes her children will learn from her "journey".

Asked by ABC News' Amy Robach if she would let her daughter pose for the magazine when she is the same age, Drew said: "I would not let her. I don't think I would. I would influence her not to, because my life choices are supposed to be the gateway to somebody else's. That's my journey."

However, the former child actress - who went to rehab aged just 13 for alcohol and drug abuse - insists she doesn't regret any of her past antics.

Drew - who is married to third husband Will Kopelman - said: "I have no regrets in my life whatsoever. I'm psyched about it all. I'm just in such a different mind frame. I'm in mom mode now.

I celebrate that I had any sense of freedoms at a certain point, because I don't feel like that now. I love the very exposed, humorous, imperfect, never trying to pretend to be perfect journey that I have been on in my life."

And the 38-year-old actress wants to be the best role model she can for her children.

She said: "The best kind of parent you can be is to lead by example. Whatever I've experienced in my life is a part of my story, and I'm proud of that. But it's someone who wakes up early, works all day, believes in charitable work, business-minded, diligent, accountable, problem-solving... I'm so much about school, consistency and tradition."
