Post-Baby Body: "I'd
Rather Kill Myself
Than Get Into a
Drew Barrymore's settling into motherhood— and into her post-baby body!
The past year has been all about amazing transformations for 38-year-old Drew: The former wild child married the love of her life, launched the Flower Beauty cosmetics line and gave birth to now-6-month-old Olive.
One thing she didn’t do? Stress over losing her baby weight by the time her daughter could crawl. “I’d rather kill myself than get into a bikini right now!” Drew tells In Touch with a laugh.
Although Drew admits she wasn’t completely in shape before getting pregnant, she is back to where she was pre-pregnancy and that’s just fine by her. “I take care of myself. But I’m never going to be the person who talks about diet and exercise — I would fail that conversation!” Drew jokes.
Other pregnancy changes Drew endured? Facial hair and skin discoloration! “I got a wonderful little goatee — and it was red! I also got hyperpigmentation on my cheeks.” Nothing a little microdermabrasion couldn't fix — coupled with her must-have beauty product: concealer! “If I was going off to a desert island, concealer is the one thing I’d want to take. It’s the only product that I couldn’t make it without!” Drew shares with In Touch.
Now that Drew’s in full-time mommy mode — “This is sacred time,” she says of Olive’s age — she plans to scale back on acting and directing projects and keep her calendar open for plenty of family time.
