Actress Drew Barrymore has been completely “reborn” after taking a break from Hollywood.

The star decided to go on hiatus last year and has been focusing on exploring her “spirituality” – and she insists her time away from movies has made her feel like a new person.

She tells Elle magazine, “For three years straight, I’ve been burning the candle at both ends, and as of last December, I just didn’t have anything left. I’ve been so aggressive about living life to the fullest and being plugged into everything, but now I’ve ripped the plug out of the wall and put it on the floor for a while.

“I’m thinking about the same things as when I was 15, about spirituality and who I am, who I want to be. It’s cocoon, pupa, larva, and f**k, I’m reborn!”

But the 50 First Dates star insists she hasn’t completely abandoned cinema for her spiritual endeavours, adding: “I make movies. I have a passion. Puppies and daisies don’t accomplish anything. That’s not me at all.”
