(NEW YORK) — Drew Barrymore gave birth to her first child, Olive, six months ago, but the actress admits she’s in no rush to be thin.
“I’d rather kill myself than get into a bikini right now!” Barrymore joked to In Touch Weekly magazine. “I take care of myself. But I’m never going to be the person who talks about diet and exercise — I would fail that conversation!”
The 38-year-old actress says she experienced some unusual things during her pregnancy. “I got a wonderful little goatee [when I was pregnant] and it was red. I also got hyperpigmentation on my cheeks,” she dished to the magazine, saying that a bit of primping with her favorite beauty product fixed those issues. “If I was going off to a desert island, concealer is the one thing I’d want to take. It’s the only product that I couldn’t make it without!”
Barrymore says she’s decided to scale back on acting and directing films for the time being and focus on her baby and husband Will Kopelman. Regarding her relationship with Kopelman now that their baby has arrived, Barrymore says, “You have to try to squeeze in the occasional date night. For our last date night, he took me downtown for ramen noodles, which is my favorite!”
Barrymore’s full interview is in this week’s issue of In Touch Weekly magazine on newsstands now.
