Drew Barrymore Covers 'Good Housekeeping' Magazine February 2013
Here’s what the 37-year-old actress had to share with the mag:
On her husband Will Kopelman: “Last night, I was looking at my husband like, What if he weren’t my husband and we hadn’t just had a baby and we were just here with a group of people? I was just having such a crush on him.”
On getting back into shape after having a baby: “I’m still working on it, but I’m not worrying about it. We live in a society where everyone’s like, ‘Look at how amazing she looks two weeks out [from giving birth].’ I don’t want to be on that hamster wheel; that’s hell. I’m never going to have the kind of body that makes me excited about bikini season. I’ve never had a ‘beach body.’ But I want to feel like I’m showing up and doing my best. My goal is to be nice to myself, gentle toward myself, during this process. It’s such a sacred time.”
On being a mom: “My favorite thing about being a mom is just what a better person it makes you on a daily basis. Every morning when I wake her up, the endgame is, Can I get her to smile? And that puts me in a good mood. It’s definitely a different way to live — and a much better one.”
