After having two adorable daughters less than two years apart, Drew Barrymore reveals in this week's People that she is more than happy to ignore the pressure from Hollywood to lose weight. The main reason you won't spot her tirelessly hitting the treadmill? Her family always takes precedence over gym time. "I wouldn't look at my kids and be like, 'I have a free hour, I'm going to work out,'" the actress tells the mag.

Barrymore's fitness mantra goes hand-in-hand with the fact that she has no qualms about slowly getting back to her pre-baby body: "It took nine months to [gain it], so it should take nine months to get off," she says. The star also shared that she only just began working out again (with celeb trainer Tracy Anderson), though her second daughter Frankie was born back in April. "I wanted fettuccine Alfredo. I didn't want a barbell," she says. "I didn't even want to think about [losing weight] until I immersed myself in babyhood."

Barrymore's attitude toward losing the baby weight comes as no surprise to us—the star has always played by her own rules when it comes to her body. The mother-of-two revealed to InStyle back in January that while good friend (and fitness nutCameron Diaz has offered her plenty of great health advice, she doesn't usually put it into practice. "Oh my God, [Cameron has offered] thousands of wisdoms," she says. "I just don’t listen to most of them!"
