Drew Barrymore loves "playing" with fashion.

The 'Going The Distance' actress - who is also the face of Covergirl cosmetics - admits she likes to play a character when she is on the red carpet and mix up her look from time-to-time.

She said: "I feel like I'm playing a character. I love fashion. I think in fashion, the same as in relationships - no rules.

"So sometimes I'm in a demure mood and some I've got big, just-got-sh****d Texas hair and a ball gown. I just think it's fun to play. I love playing so much."

Discussing her role as the face of Covergirl, 35 year old Drew admits she occasionally thinks of herself as unattractive, but makes the most of what she has.

She told Hello! magazine: "There's a big difference between being obsesses with beauty and wanting to look and feel your best.

"This is what I was given and I want to work with that, but I've played a lot of characters who were unattractive by societies standards. I've related to those women a lot more at times."
