Drew Barrymore: “I’m definitely going to be 5 to 10 pounds overweight”

January 7, 2014 in Drew Barrymore by Versus


On cooking:

I looooooove cookbooks. I cook a lot when I’m pregnant. When I got pregnant the first time, I couldn’t even boil water. Now I can make the most spectactular slow-roasted pork tacos you will ever have, an incredible verde sauce with ancho chilies — so f—ing good. A Greek yogurt pie with lemon zest and pepper filling on a gingersnap crust with black seedless grape compote. Amazing!

On not prioritizing having a thin figure:

You don’t get to do everything all at once and all the time. Life doesn’t work that way. I’m definitely going to be 5 to 10 pounds overweight. I’ll be thrilled if my husband is pleased with me that day, if my kid feels like she came first, and if I accomplished something at my job. Then I can hit the sack. My body is never going to be all that and a bag of chips. I will never be that woman who gets up at 5am to exercise. I’d rather curl up with my husband and my dogs.

… says pregnant Drew in Marie Claire.
