Celebs are just like us. Um, kind of. But when Drew Barrymore was asked by a fan if she’s pregnant, she did what we all wish we could — got totally honest, in a hilarious way. Barrymore may be a super-famous actress and a mogul in her own rite. She’s also a mama and a human being. And that what makes her response to a fan sooooooo laugh-worthy.

During a recent appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden, while promoting the new season of her show — Santa Clarita Diet, Barrymore got candid on the subject of diets. Yeah, yeah, actresses are supposed to eat next to nothing and stay picture-perfect size 0’s Right? Well, not Barrymore. On the subject of dieting, Barrymore told Corden, “I would much rather eat fettuccine alfredo all day long.”

Even though she lost weight (through exercise) while filming Season 1 of Santa Clarita Diet, Barrymore started gaining again before the next season was set to start. “I’m a foodie. I love food, I travel the world for food, and I got heavy between the show.”

Barrymore added that after going out to eat with a group of her mom friends and their kiddos a woman stopped her, commenting on how many children she has. The actress answered, “Not all of them are mine.” And the woman? She responded, “Well you’re expecting, obviously?” Hmm. Obviously?

Obviously, Barrymore wasn’t preggo. Instead of a lengthy explanation or a sheepish shrug-off, the celeb answered back, “No, I’m just fat right now.”
