Remini noted that her 16-year-old finds “nothing interesting” about her, but notes that she’s not like other stereotypical, angsty, anti-parent teens.

Barrymore noted that the youth of today is far more engaged in activism and community building, despite stereotypes that they’re constantly on their phones and engrossed in their own social media bubbles.

“I sometimes wish that we could be raising kids with playing until the street lights go on and no social media, but that’s just not the world we live in,” the host explained. “I do think a trade-off is this wokeness, this awareness that’s incredible.”

“I wasn’t thinking about these things when I was her age,” Remini joked. “I was thinking about Jordash and Sergio Valente.”
