Drew Barrymore feels most attractive when she makes her husband laugh.

The 37-year-old actress tied the knot with art consultant Will Kopelman eight months ago and says making him smile makes her feel pretty even if she is dressed down.

She said: ''[I feel most attractive] when I make Will laugh. I'm usually in sweatpants and a scrunchie, being a dork. But when I hear his funny laugh, I'm like, Damn, I feel f*****g pretty.''

Drew - who has created her own make-up line Flower - gave birth to the couple's first child, daughter Olive, four months ago and while she thinks the tot will want to play with the make-up as she gets older, she wants her to hold on to her childhood as long as possible.

Drew added to Us Weekly magazine: ''What little girl doesn't want to play with make-up? But kids should be kids for as long as possible. When she gets into her teens though all bets are off. She should just experiment and figure out what kind of woman she wants to be.''
