The actress followed a strict diet to shed a little weight.

Actress Drew Barrymore lost 20 pounds (9.1 kilograms) while shooting her new Netflix show Santa Clarita Diet.

The Charlie's Angel star slimmed down to 124 pounds (56.2 kilograms) while she was filming the comedy series, which also stars Timothy Olyphant.

"I feel really great," she tells Us Weekly. "I followed Kimberly Snyder's (diet) methods, but I added some protein, like fish and chicken, since she's all vegetarian or vegan. I've been very disciplined and all I did was cry and dream about pizza. I still am dreaming and crying about pizza."

The 41-year-old is trying hard to stick to her diet, but she admits she will give it up briefly when the holidays come.

"I'm going to enjoy some of that stuffing!" she says.

And she is not only paying attention to her weight - Drew also makes sure she drinks a lot of water and uses Korean masks to keep her skin looking healthy.

"I honestly have everything, I just took a trip there (to Korea) and came back with moving boxes full of masks and I've been studying them," she explains. "I don't do anything invasive on my face, so this is the most exciting thing that's happened to a mom like me. I was feeling 42 and tired and I needed something, and the Korean masks have actually changed my life."

Santa Clarita Diet, in which Drew and Timothy play married real estate agents, debuts next year (17). The actors will also serve as producers on the show.
