(CNN)Drew Barrymore was virtually interviewed on Howard Stern's SiriusXM show Monday, where she opened up about her tumultuous teen years and her relationship with her mom, Jaid Barrymore.

Barrymore said that as a child actor year, she was wild with "too many resources" and a mom who wanted to be her friend instead of her mother.

So, you know, sometimes it was as humorous as that and sometimes I was just so angry that I would go off and then I'd get thrown in the thing," she said, explaining that "the thing" was a "full psychiatric ward" where she was placed for 18 months.

Barrymore said it was not a cushy rehab experience.

"I used to laugh at those like Malibu 30 day places.

Barrymore said she was so angry she "couldn't see straight," and couldn't understand why she was being punished so severely.

And I thought, maybe you need the craziest form of structure because everything was so accessible available and screwed up in your world that maybe it's going to take something like this for you to kickstart the rest of your life," she said.
