Drew Barrymore has spoken out about her recent 10kg weight loss.
Promoting her new Netflix series The Santa Clarita Diet on the Today Show, the actress revealed why she had neglected her health over the last couple of years.
‘It came sort of in the middle of a moment in my life where I had sort of let myself go, due to personal circumstances,’
The mum-of-two, who split from ex-husband Will Kopelman in April, went on to explain that filming her new zombie show - in which she plays Sheila, a real estate agent who becomes a zombie that feeds on human flesh – helped motivate her.
‘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,’ she said.
‘It’s attitudinal, it’s empowerment, it’s confidence. It’s all of these things, that 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.’
