Drew Barrymore: 'You aren't supposed to look perfect while you're making babies'
As she awaits the arrival of her second child with husband Will Kopelman, Drew Barrymore's priorities have become decidedly less Hollywood in everything from her looks to her job. "You're not supposed to look perfect while you're making babies. Making babies is the perfection," she tells the new issue of Women's Health. "It's about feeling good in clothes and knowing you can get dressed up in the evening … but there's just no such thing as perfection. So if you're trying to get there, you're just torturing yourself."
As for her career, Drew says her family has to come first. "Everything I'm going to do is going to have a real consciousness toward, 'Is this a job I can do and still get home in time for dinner and have days where I get to do every diaper change? Then I'm going to have to go out on certain days and work and not try to feel like the guiltiest person on the planet, which every mother understands."
That kid-centric mentality wasn't exactly something the actress and producer picked up from her own childhood, though. "I didn't grow up around a lot of family," she says. "I grew up so fast and exposed to everything, and I think being a kid for as long as possible is just awesome -- I would love that for my kid."
