In the past, she said she didn’t want to feel embarrassed about her body: “Never have, never do,” she said in 2019. “I think it’s bulls.”

The ET star also said that keeping in shape makes her a better mom to her two daughters Olive, seven, and Frankie, six, who she had with ex-husband Will Kopelman.

“Between homeschooling and working, I felt very overwhelmed at first – and I hate being overwhelmed,” she told InStyle.

“It was weird to be a mother and teacher and a breadwinner and a friend. I felt sad for a while that I was all I could offer my children.

“Then I realized I had to get out from under it. I have so much empathy and patience for everyone except myself, it’s sick. [laughs]’

“And I am a student. I am learning until the end of time. ‘

This cover comes after Barrymore praised her late father for teaching her how to raise with ‘so much love’.

Born to actor John Drew Barrymore – who died in 2004 – and her mother Jaid Barrymore, the actress has said that although she often wished she had a father who would ‘fit’ society, she is ultimately happy with the the way she was brought up.

She wrote in a social media post on Father’s Day: “My mom chose a wild card for my dad. He was a crazy poet, a hedonistic human child! But I understood that as a child. Somehow I have no problems with baggage or father. I think I would have liked to have a father who didn’t look like that. Or who stayed. Or was actually capable of something.

“But his wildness flows through me. His gifts are here. His demons to be conquered are mine to break! I love him, not who I wanted him to be, but who he was. And when I look at all the pictures of fathers today as they do their father work, then surely my little self wished he belonged. But he never did. And I don’t know if I did either. And I’m not sure what something should look like, or what it really is outside of the images ?! (sic) ‘

The Blended star says both her parents taught her how to raise her own children and praised her Hollywood star dad for giving her a ‘wildness’ that she ‘really cherishes’.

She added, “But I know this … both my parents played a big part in who I am as a parent. And nothing looks perfect. But it works with so much love. And togetherness. And availability. I don’t have a picture of a dad today to show just how amazing everything was. I have a photo to show what it was. And that is my story. And that in itself is perfect. My father gave me the gift of life! A bad sense of humor! And that wildness that I really cherish. ‘
