The 43-year-old star says playing Sheila in the series has reminded her of the importance of "putting a little into yourself does make you feel a little more alive".
"If a woman was really eating just protein and nothing else she would lose weight. It gave me this intense responsibility that I said I want to fulfil to be Sheila and then there was like no excuses.
"... It is called 'Santa Clarita Diet' but it is more than that for me. It is doing her hair and putting on nails and accessorising. Sheila has reminded me in a way that sometimes putting a little into yourself does make you feel a little more alive. Isn't it ironic? ... This is a smooth sailing ship, there is no drama. If I could have no drama in any area of my life, I will take it," Barrymore said during an appearance on "The Today Show".
