It is reported that a weight loss company recently approached Drew Barrymore with a very lucrative offer worth $1 million to lose 50 pounds. The actress, however, refused to accept the offer.

As the Inquisitr earlier reported, Drew didn’t accept the offer because it is a matter of priorities for her. A source told OK! Magazine that Drew turned down the offer as she couldn’t handle raising two daughters — Olive, 4, and Frankie, 6 — while also taking care of her hectic schedule which involved making public appearances, filming, and promoting her beauty line, Flower.

Drew has been open about her weight fluctuations and, as the report pointed out, she is okay with that and isn’t stressing over it. She is, instead, focusing on her business, her friends, and her family.

The report also added that Drew’s decision to steer clear of weight loss products comes at a good time as many high-profile celebrities — including the Kardashians family and Cardi B — have been criticized for endorsing and selling similar weight loss products like diet teas and shakes for people to slim down fast.
