Drew Barrymore inspired to lose 20 pounds

Posted on


Drew Barrymore’s Netflix show inspired her to lose 20 pounds.
The 43-year-old actress ditched the impressive amount for her role as a zombie in ‘Santa Clarita Diet’ and says playing Sheila in the Netflix series has reminded her the importance of ”putting a little into yourself does make you feel a little more alive”.
Speaking on The Today Show, she said: ”If a woman was really eating just protein and nothing else she would lose weight. It gave me this intense responsibility that I said I want to fulfill to be Sheila and then there was like no excuses … It is called ‘Santa Clarita Diet’ but it is more than that for me. It is doing her hair and putting on nails and accessorising. Sheila has reminded me in a way that sometimes putting a little into yourself does make you feel a little more alive. Isn’t it ironic? … This is a smooth sailing ship, there is no drama. If I could have no drama in any area of my life, I will take it.”
Meanwhile, Drew previously insisted a strict beauty regime is ”time consuming”.
Alongside a photograph of Drew with her freshly painted red manicure resting on top of her script, which was shared on her Instagram account, she wrote: ”#becomingSheila time to get her rad nails. Gosh, being a girl is time consuming … No wonder I let it all go. @kimmiekyees @tombachik @debbiedoesnails #ITTAKESAVILLAGE thank you for your brilliance. I am lucky to work with you guys! (sic).”
