Drew Barrymore has shed light on how long long she goes without shaving with a hilarious video she uploaded to Instagram this week.
In the video, which featured a rather funny bathroom mishap, Barrymore revealed it was the first time she was shaving for three months when she was interrupted by the house alarm.
"You can not make this stuff up. I was so excited," Barrymore admitted to the camera.
With cream visibly around her underarms, she added: "I was finally shaving after three months - but the house alarm is going off."
The video then cuts to the aftermath, with Barrymore having a towel wrapped around her and the alarm no longer going off.
Barrymore did say that her bath was 'over' due to the water turning cold.
But the Charlie's Angels star still got to shave, she concluded: "I did get to shave though, under absolute stress and duress and panic.
"So, joke's on you house alarm."
And this isn't the first time she's been candid about her shaving routine, as the 50 First Dates actor admitted in a recent interview she did not see shaving as a form of self-care.
Speaking with InStyle last month, the 48-year-old said: "Self-care and I are not friends. My legs aren't shaven. I try to clip my nails down because I don't like dirt under them.
"I try to work out three times a week with girlfriends, and I usually make it two days a week, which is something.
"Three days a week is the goal. Sometimes, if I have time, I can do four days a week. It's just that there's no time."
She continued: "Self-care for me is having my kids' stuff organised to get out the door in the morning, lined up.
"That's self-care. It doesn't seem like it, but it is, because this f**king bubble bath approach is so irritating.
"That doesn't bring me self-care or joy. Having my kids' stuff in a system, lined up, their shoes and their jackets and their backpacks, that makes me feel like I won the morning."
The discussion around self-care and shaving is a much talked about online, with many discussing how often you should embark on a grooming session.
Particularly as the weather picks up and we approach the summer months, the fear of showing body hair comes out for many as the jeans are ditched for shorts.
In fact, while a bit of leg stubble may sound trivial to some, over 81 percent of people wished they didn’t feel so much pressure to remove their body hair in the summer months, according to a survey by Estrid.
