LOS ANGELES, Nov. 16 (UPI) -- American actress Drew Barrymore says she believes that being pregnant isn't about "looking perfect."

In an interview with "Women's Health," Barrymore, 38, who is pregnant with her second child, says that expectant women should take pregnancy in stride, People magazine reported.

"You're not supposed to look perfect while you're making babies. Making babies is the perfection," Barrymore said. "It's about feeling good in clothes and knowing you can get dressed up in the evening ... but there's just no such thing as perfection. So if you're trying to get there, you're just torturing yourself."

Barrymore, who owns a makeup line and a line of wine, said she's still trying to find a good balance between work and being a mom.

"Work has been my priority my whole life," she said. "It feels OK to shift that priority, it feels like it's time."
