Drew Barrymore is not pregnant, she just loves her fettuccine alfredo!


The 43-year-old, who plays a mom-turned-zombie on the hit Netflix series Santa Clarita Diet, recently appeared on The Late Late Show, where she opened up about her struggles with dieting during filming and revealed a recent story about when a fan outright asked her if she was pregnant.


The story began when James Corden asked Barrymore if she was good at dieting since her flesh-eating character just eats protein. 


"Let's face it, I hate it," she told the host on Wednesday night. I would much rather eat fettuccine alfredo all day long."

Let's face it, I hate it [dieting]. I would much rather eat fettuccine alfredo all day long.

"When I first started the show, I was 145 lbs. and my life was kind of falling apart," Barrymore said. "And I said, Victor (Fresco, the shows executive producer), can I lose 20 lbs. over the course of the show, and change my eyebrows and the height of my shoes and the body language and attitude and go from someone whos kind of naïve and unhappy to someone whos empowered and alive? And he said yes, and so I got to make that transformation."


After successfully dropping those pesky 20 lbs. for the first season, Barrymore went on to relax and enjoy herself once they finished shooting, AKA pigging out and rightfully so.  


"When I'm doing the show I'm a vegan, and I barely eat anything, and I workout every day, and it's so healthy," the mother of two revealed. "It gets to be euphoric, and then it's like food poisoning, you feel like you'll never eat again, and then before you know it you're pigging out with the feed bag strapped to your face. And I'm a foodie, and love food and I travel the world for food, so I get heavy again between the show."


While leaving a restaurant with her friends and all of their kids, a fan approached her.


"Shes like, 'God, you have so many kids,' and I go 'Well not all of them are mine, I just have two. And shes like, 'Well, and youre expecting, obviously.' And I just looked at her and go 'No, I'm just fat right now,' " Barrymore said. "And I walked out of the restaurant, and I was like, 'Oh man, that is rough. But she's a b***h.' "
