Fitting into Hollywood body standards doesn’t come easy to Drew Barrymore, and at age 45, she’s accepted that.
The actress and mom of two is speaking openly about her body struggleson Instagramfor what she’s calling her “#WellnessWeek,” and on Wednesday, she talked about the “rollercoaster of my body.”
Barrymore said that her body has changed significantly over the years, especially during her two pregnancies.
“I go up and I go down. The rollercoaster of my body is a challenging, but beautiful ride. I made two kids. The single most important purpose for me being on this planet is for them! It is a true miracle I was able to have these two girls. So whatever the aftermath on my body, well bring it on!” she wrote.
TheSanta Clarita Dietstar said that she really had to work to get back to her pre-baby body after her pregnancies, and pointed out that all celebrities get a ton of help to do it.
“DON’T Be fooled by what you see when people are thin right after baby,” she said. “Don’t compare yourself to the magazines and the red carpets. If I looked decent on anything I have done since I had my two kids, I have clawed my way there. You can too! However, it is hard to sustain and can take a lot of the joy out of life with food.”
