Drew Barrymore looks more stunning than ever!
The 41-year-old actress stepped out at the LA premiere of her new Netflix show, Santa Clarita Diet, on Wednesday, Feb. 1 — and flaunted her recent 20-pound weight loss on the red carpet!
For the special occasion, Drew donned a chic, little black dress — embellished with a pretty, rhinestone bow! — with matching tights and a pair of sky-high, T-strap heels. She accessorized her look with minimal, diamond jewelry and swept her luscious brown locks up into a sleek ponytail.

In a new interview, the mom-of-two revealed she "let herself go" during her recent breakup from her third husband, Will Kopelman. The former couple — who are parents to two young daughters, Olive, 4, and Frankie, 2 — married in June 2012, split in April 2016 and finalized their divorce in August 2016.
"[My new show Santa Clarita Diet] came sort of the middle of a moment in my life where I had sort of let myself go due to personal circumstances, and I thought I could come alive with [my character] Sheila," Drew said during a Today sit-down earlier this week.

"[The series] was a really great goal line for me, because [even though] the weight loss [was] very subtle, it's attitudinal, it's empowerment, it's confidence," she continued. "It's all of these things that [my character] lost in her life and I felt I had lost in my life, and it was such a blessing to come alive with her and it really was so positive for me."
Last November, Drew revealed she'd shed 20 pounds by simply cutting junk food from her diet! "I was 144 and now I'm 124. I feel really great. I followed Kimberly Snyder’s 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," she told Us Weekly.
