Hollywood star Drew Barrymore is looking forward to the day she becomes a mum - but predicts it's still a long way off.

While the Charlie's Angels actress may have already experienced a lot in her life so far - including alcohol and drug addictions before reaching her teens - Barrymore wants to be "ready" before she takes on motherhood.

The 29-year-old - who is dating The Strokes drummer FABRIZIO MORETTI - says, "I can't quite hear my body clock ticking just yet, but I do look forward to the prospect.

"I believe it's the most romantic thing you could ever do. I just want to be realistic and do it when I'm ready."
