Drew Barrymore not worried about post-baby body

Drew Barrymore thinks it's "crazy" to worry about her post-baby body and has slammed the "ridiculous pressures" put onto female stars about their figures.

Drew Barrymore thinks it's "crazy" to worry about her post-baby body.

The 'Blended' star - who has daughters Olive, two, and Frankie, 12 months, with husband Will Kopelman - says she isn't phased by the "ridiculous pressures" put on her to lose weight after giving birth.

She told RadarOnline.com: "It takes nine months to build, and it is going to take at least nine months to un-build ... [Women] have to take the pressures off, because those pressures are just silly and ridiculous.

"I think it is just crazy to worry about that ... but it's fine. I am so OK with that."

Meanwhile, the 40-year-old actress previously admitted her body was "saggy and weird" after giving birth to her two children.

She said: "After making two babies, holy cow, does your body do some crazy stuff! It's hard to stay positive and love yourself.

"You feel like a kangaroo with a giant pouch; everything's saggy and weird."

But the actress insists her views on her figure are put into perspective every time she's with her young girls.

She added: "But you think about how beautiful it is that you're able to make children.

"When I lose sight of that, I exercise, read Dr. Seuss's 'Oh, the Places You'll Go!', and spend time with my kids. Then I start to see things that are bigger than myself."
