Drew Barrymore: I'm a carb queen

Drew Barrymore

Drew Barrymore has admitted that she has bucked the trend of Hollywood starlets and actually loves eating carbs.

The pregnant newlywed is enjoying eating for two and is mainly sticking to a healthy diet.

But she told the September issue of Food & Wine that she has no problem in indulging in all things starchy.

"I'm a carb queen," she said. "I'll always order macaroni and cheese, but I don't want it to be fancy. I want it to be as close to Kraft as it can possibly get!"

"I love inventive food, but I want the classic dishes to taste like how I remember them.

"I get a little bummed out when there is too much fancy stuff going on and it doesn't resemble the original dish at all."

The 37-year-old says that her fridge is currently filled with homemade curried heirloom tomato-lentil soup and her "soulmate" is tea.

Drew tied the knot with art consultant Will Kopelman in June and the avid photographer is said to be in favour of taking her own first pictures of her newborn, thought to be a girl, rather than have a magazine do the snaps.

Cancer:

Your career has been undergoing some dramatic changes. At long last, you'll have a chance to slow down and catch your breath. Getting used to a new set of responsibilities will take time and patience. Try not to be hard on yourself when you struggle with unfamiliar concepts. Nobody expects perfection, especially at this stage of the game. The more gentle you are with yourself, the easier it will be to master this role. If you're out of work, take this opportunity to rest and reflect on future possibilities.More
