Drew Barrymore's Netflix Show 'Santa Clarita Diet' Inspired Her To Lose 20 Pounds!

Drew Barrymore has revealed that she has lost 20 pounds, and it’s all thanks to The Santa Clarita Diet!

While promoting her new Netflix show with co-star Timothy Olyphant on The Today Show on Friday morning (January 27) in New York City, the 41-year-old actress credited her character Sheila in the show, who becomes a zombie after she dies, as the main inspiration for shedding the extra weight.

“It came in the middle of this moment in my life where I had let myself go due to personal circumstances,” Drew expressed (via ET). “And I thought I could come alive with Sheila. It was a really great goal line for me, because as much as the weight loss, everything’s very subtle — it’s attitudinal, it’s empowerment, it’s confidence.”

“It’s all of these things that she’s lost in her life — and I felt I had sort of lost in my life — and it was such a blessing to come alive with her, and it really was so positive for me,” Drew added.
