Drew Barrymore 'a carb queen'
Drew Barrymore is a "carb queen".
The 37-year-old actress - who is expecting her first child with husband Will Kopelman - admitted she is addicted to carbohydrates and dislikes fancy food.
She told Food & Wine magazine: "I'm a carb queen. I'll always order macaroni and cheese, but I don't want it to be fancy. I want it to be as close to [on set catering] as it can possibly get!
"I love inventive food, but I want the classic dishes to taste like how I remember them. I get a little bummed out when there is too much fancy stuff going on and it doesn't resemble the original dish at all."
While Drew has a healthy appreciation for food, she admits her own cooking skills leave a lot to be desired especially when it comes to making Mexican food.
She said: "Somebody, please teach me how to make better chilaquiles. The dish was simultaneously dry and soggy - I somehow accomplished both textures and nothing else. I tried adding Cholula hot sauce, Topatio hot sauce, but nothing was helping that sucker!"
Drew also loves tea, calling it her "soul mate".
She explained: "I drink tons of tea - black tea Tejava, jasmine tea, UCC, which is an amazing Asian green tea. Tea is my love. It's my soul mate."
