Drew Dropped 20lbs
Barrymore has dropped 20 pounds while making the new series which she co-produces.
The mom of two says she was inspired to lose weight by her character Sheila, who develops a strange illness that leaves her craving human meat.
“I thought, ‘I could come alive with Sheila,’ and it was a really great goal line for me, because I think as much as the weight loss, everything’s just really subtle,” Barrymore says.
“It’s attitudinal, it’s empowerment, it’s confidence. It’s all of these things, that’s she’s lost in her life, that I sort of felt like I had lost in my life, and it’s such a blessing to come alive with her. And it really was so positive for me.”
She admits she truly identified with her new self-actualized character Sheila in the process.
“If you’re eating, in her case, human flesh, I basically thought, well if a woman was just eating simple protein every day all day long she would lose weight,” quipped Barrymore. “It’s like a very macabre Atkins [diet].”Click here to keep reading
