Drew Barrymore: Why She’s Never Done Plastic Surgery
Drew Barrymore has never gone under the knife to cosmetically enhance her appearance. The talk show host revealed in a new interview this week that she hasn’t “done anything” when it comes to plastic surgery — and she doesn’t plan to anytime soon. She told People on Thursday (November 16), “I’m going to maintain that as long as possible. I look forward to seeing what I look like as a leather bag in the future!”
As for why she is against going under the knife, there’s one concern that’s keeping the Charlie’s Angels alum from getting it done. “I have a highly addictive personality, so I worry I’d continue to chase it, get this and that done,” explained the 48-year-old mother of two. “That scares me, just because of my own approach to things. So, I’m waiting on making any alterations.” However, Drew clarified that she has “zero judgment” on others in Hollywood who get work done. She just doesn’t see herself “resorting to it.” Instead, she’s perfectly content dyeing her hair.
The talk show host has also been open about her sobriety journey. As we previously reported, Barrymore was only 13 years old when she first went to rehab. She exited the facility two months later against medical advice. Once she was out, the actress stole her mother’s credit card and went on a cocaine binge. Eventually, private agents hired by her mother handcuffed Barrymore and returned her to the clinic. Her struggles with substance abuse didn’t end there. She confessed it was her talk show and her daughters that ultimately led her to the decision to stop drinking.
Barrymore doesn’t call herself sober and doesn’t work a program like Alcoholics Anonymous. She makes this clear because she doesn’t want people to think she’s “some perfect Puritan,” and because she feels that alcohol was her specific poison. “I kept thinking, ‘I’ll master this. I’ll figure it out.’ And finally, I just realized: ‘You’ve never mastered this, and you never will.’”
