Drew Barrymore: Pregnancy gave me a beard

Actress opens up about her embarrassing mum-to-be symptoms and why she’s not going to be bikini ready


Hollywood actress Drew Barrymore has revealed she grew a beard when she was pregnant with baby daughter Olive.


The star, who’s known for her great sense of humour, opened up about the embarrassing changes she experienced as a mum-to-be, including some new-found facial hair.

“I got a wonderful little goatee, and it was red! I also got hyperpigmentation on my cheeks,” Drew reportedly told InTouch magazine, according to Contact Music.

The 38-year-old, who gave birth to her first child 6 months ago, also said she’s not bothered about getting back to her pre-baby shape.

“I’d rather kill myself than get into a bikini right now! 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,” she explained.

The first-time mum also recently shared her thoughts about the difficulties of juggling her family and career, saying she’s given up her film-making career to focus on raising her daughter Olive.

We love Drew’s honesty about all aspects of motherhood, and especially about the not so glam sides of pregnancy!
