Drew Barrymore is avoiding plastic surgery due to ‘highly addictive personality’: ‘That scares me’

Drew Barrymore is steering clear of plastic surgery. 

The talk show host, 48, revealed that she is avoiding cosmetic procedures because of her “highly addictive” nature. 

“I have a highly addictive personality, so I worry I’d continue to chase it, get this and that done,” Barrymore explained to People in an interview published Thursday. 

“That scares me, just because of my own approach to things,” she added. “So, I’m waiting on making any alterations.” 

The “Never Been Kissed” actress — who battled substance abuse as an adolescent and gave up drinking altogether in 2021 — insisted that she hasn’t “done anything” to fight the aging process.

“I have a highly addictive personality, so I worry I’d continue to chase it, get this and that done,” the talk show host told People.

“And I’m going to maintain that as long as possible,” she said. “I have zero judgment for anyone doing anything. But I don’t see myself resorting to it.”

Barrymore does, however, indulge in beauty products and loves experimenting with different hairstyles and hues. 

The former child star admitted that she dyes her hair so much that she “doesn’t know [her] real color” anymore. 

The Flower Beauty founder said that she has “zero judgment” for those who opt to go under the knife.

But going under the knife isn’t of interest to Barrymore, who hopes to show her daughters — Olive, 11, and Frankie, 9, whom she shares with ex-husband Will Kopelman — that growing older is a gift.

“It means you’re alive, you’re living, and that’s a really good thing. Embracing aging is such positive, healthy messaging,” the Flower Beauty founder said.

According to Barrymore, she emphasizes the importance of health — rather than one’s physical appearance — with her girls. 

“Health really comes into focus more than anything when there is peril,” the mom of two told People. 

“If you have your health, then you can focus on so many other things — including beauty. But it really is the most important thing of all.”
