Drew Barrymore on motherhood: 'Having a hot body is just not my thing'

Drew Barrymore is one Celebrity mum who certainly knows how to keep it real.

The actress recently opened up about motherhood and how she feels about Hollywood’s expectations for celebrity mums to bounce back after having a baby.

"I never looked good in a bathing suit, so now I look worse in a bathing suit," she told People. "I have cellulite. But I would much rather have my kids and look a little worse in a bathing suit!"

While the mum of two enjoys exercising and takes time out to do kickboxing and yoga, she says she’s not a body maintenance kind of person and likes to keep things in perspective.

"Having a hot body is just not my thing. I care a little, I don’t care a lot," she said.

After welcoming her two daughters 3-year-old Olive and 18-month-old Frankie with husband Will Kopelman, having the perfect body "just isn’t at the forefront of [her] mind."

"I took my pants off last night and looked at the back of my legs and was like, 'Oh f**k, seriously? This is … God!'"

Now that’s a woman who knows how to keep it real. Go Drew!
