Don’t tell Drew Barrymore to put another shrimp on the barbie!
In an article for Glamour magazine posted on Wednesday, the 40-year-old dished on what her body looked like after giving birth to her beautiful two daughters — Olive, 2, and Frankie, 11 months — and she’s feeling a bit like a marsupial!
The Miss You Already star talked about her struggle:
“After making two babies, holy cow, does your body do some crazy stuff! It’s hard to stay positive and love yourself. You feel like a kangaroo with a giant pouch; everything’s saggy and weird.”
But before you hop to conclusions, the former child actor didn’t feel bad about her post-pregnancy figure for too long. In fact, her self-esteem started to boost when she realized how blessed she is to be a mother!
“But you think about how beautiful it is that you’re able to make children. When I lose sight of that, I exercise, read Dr. Seuss‘s Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, and spend time with my kids. Then I start to see things that are bigger than myself.”
Her carefree attitude even lends a hand when it comes to taking selfies!
“You don’t always have to look stunning on Instagram. I’ve been makeupless, pregnant, and stuffing food in my face in many pictures; that makes it all the more exciting when I do do something more attractive. I don’t like it when everyone looks so perfect all the time. Where’s the humor in that?”
Who knew being so imperfect could actually make you perfect?!
