A glowing Drew Barrymore covers Allure’s January issue just weeks after giving birth.

The stunning new mom talks to the mag about her hubby, work ethic and healthy lifestyle.

An anti-dieter, Barrymore tells the mag, “I cannot live a life where I’m deprived. I’d much rather be five, ten pounds heavier.”

On husband Will Koppelman, Barrymore says, “We have opposite experiences, but we’re not opposites. We’re both very particular and detail-oriented. We love art and music and adventures, and we laugh our asses off together...I’m a Kopelman now. I have stationery that says ‘Drew Barrymore Kopelman’. I love to sort of honor and be a part of the family business with Chanel, and then I try to do a little something funky and me. I wear a lot of Chanel now.”

Once Drew has her mind set to something, she'll do everything in her power to make it happen, with the recent launch of her makeup line as a direct reflection of her determination to get it done.

On commitment, Barrymore says, “I will always commit. It’s like this makeup line: I can tell you every single detail about how and why we got here. I want to be that kind of mother. I’m that kind of friend. I’m that kind of producer. I do everything in this life-or-death way…The only thing I’ve tried to get better at is starting to believe maybe it’s not life or death. But the [level of] commitment hasn’t changed or wavered.”
