Drew Barrymore recently lost 20 pounds. We think she always looks great, but the inspo behind her loss is totes silly. She dropped the poundage to become a zombie for The Santa Clarita Diet.

Actually, though, the context is that she connected deeply with her character, which helped her break out of a personal rut she had fallen in.

Inspiration comes in the least likely places.

“It came in the middle of this moment in my life where I had let myself go due to personal circumstances,” Barrymore said.

“And I thought I could come alive with Sheila. It was a really great goal line for me, because as much as the weight loss, everything’s very subtle — it’s attitudinal, it’s empowerment, it’s confidence.”
