Drew Barrymore thrilled her fans on social media this week after taking to Instagram to post a very relatable, filter-free selfie - grey hair and all. The stunning star shared a close-up, makeup-free photograph of herself lying on her bed, revealing her untamed eyebrows and messy bed-head hair. Captioning the image, Drew, who is getting into role for season 2 of Netflix horror-comedy Santa Clarita Diet, in which she plays Sheila Hammond, wrote: "OH MY GOD How did I let it get this bad. Base and brows needed. Must become her. #Santaclaritadiet here we go again. Season two."
