Drew Barrymore Just Clapped Back So Hard At A 'Fan' Who Asked If She Was Pregnant

Diply 23 Mar 2018

We all struggle with our own body image issues, including celebrities. The only difference between them and us is that they endure a lot more body shaming via tabloids, social media, and sometimes, even inconsiderate "fans."

Drew Barrymore is an actress, producer, director, author, business owner, and mother. So when a rude fan made a comment about her weight, it's really no surprise that our hero Drew clapped right back at her.

*sigh* Just one more reason to love Drew.

During a recent appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Drew revealed that she had gained a lot of weight just before her show, Santa Clarita Diet, was starting to film.

"When I first started the show, I was 145 pounds and my life was falling apart," she revealed.

It's likely that Drew was referring to her divorce from Will Kopelman, with whom she shares two children.

"I think sometimes women in their forties who've experienced lots of life question like, I have kids, am I the person I was, who am I going to be, I'll never be the same..." Drew continued.

"And you're kind of floating in this weird purgatory vortex of who you're supposed to become after having children..."

"So I used the show as a wake-up call to myself," she said.

"I said [to the show's creator], 'Can I lose twenty pounds over the course of the show?'"

During the show's first season, Drew revealed that she was exercising regularly and eating super healthy. But between the first and second seasons, Drew said, "I got heavy."

It was during this time that a rude "fan" made an unnecessary comment about Drew's weight.

"I'm walking out of a restaurant with a bunch of my mom friends and their kids and this woman stops me and goes, 'God, you have so many kids.' I said, 'Not all of them are mine,' and she goes, 'Well, you're expecting, obviously,'" Drew revealed.

So what did Drew say to this ignorant troll?

"I literally look at her and go, 'No, I’m just fat right now.'"

Seriously, people. When are we going to stop criticizing the way other women look and instead start minding our own business? Drew is a perfect example of someone who doesn't let the bullies get to her and is comfortable just being herself.
