Drew Barrymore is reportedly getting rid of her tattoos because they clash with her status as a wife and mom.
The 37-year-old actress is clearly embracing her new status as a wife to Will Kopelman and mother to daughter Olive, who was born in September last year.
America’s Star magazine claims that the former Hollywood wild child wants to ditch her collection of body art to ensure she is taken seriously. There is also speculation that she made the decision because she is converting to Will’s Jewish faith and cannot be buried in a traditional cemetery unless she is tattoo-free.
“Drew also wants to be a Santa Barbara mom, and tattoos clash with that wardrobe,” a friend told the publication. “She’s growing up and turning conservative.”
Drew’s tattoos are believed to include a butterfly on her stomach, a cross on her leg, two angels on her lower back and a bouquet of flowers on her hip.
The star reportedly started undergoing the painful process of removing the etchings recently.
Although Drew sometimes feels younger than her years, she recently revealed that she takes her work and family responsibilities very seriously. She is determined to be a good mom and wife, as well as a successful career woman.
"I will always commit," Drew explained. "I want to be that kind of mother. I'm that kind of friend. I'm that kind of producer. I do everything in this life-or-death way... The only thing I've tried to get better at is starting to believe maybe it's not life or death. But the [level of] commitment hasn't changed or wavered."
Drew also confessed she is thriving since getting married to art consultant Will in June last year and feels happier than ever.
"I'm a Kopelman now. I have stationery that says 'Drew Barrymore Kopelman,'" she beamed.
