Actress Drew Barrymore "freaked out" after taking a break from her career to embark on a year-long spiritual quest abroad.

After wrapping her 2009 directorial debut with "Whip It", the 37-year-old went on a solo journey to India to give herself a chance to reflect on her future.

However, Barrymore admits she panicked when the time came to give up her career.

"It freaked me out. I was afraid to let go. But with great risk comes great reward. We always wonder (when single), 'Where is this person? Oh my God, I'm lonely, what's my future?'"

"But eventually you'll meet somebody, and this time will be gone. And you will kick yourself for not enjoying it. For me, that year was a great investment. It made me realise, I'm ready for something different," femalefirst.co.uk quoted her as saying.
