The actress – who has daughters Olive and Frankie with her ex-husband will Kopelman – revealed that since having kids and turning 40, she is less worried about her appearance.

“Now, I’m a mom and in my mid-forties, I have the hair I like – drama-free and more natural. It takes 30 minutes to do my base of greys. I only barely cover them, so that the follicles can still grab the light as it grows out. Yes, your greys can double as highlights with the right tint,” she says to Sunday Times style magazine.

Drew also insisted she was never afraid to take risks with fashion.

“I always loved dressing in a way that made me feel like I was a billboard for joy. I just didn’t suit that clean classic look. I felt much more myself in crazy make-up and being somewhere like a music festival where there were other like-minded dressers,” she adds.
