(Scroll down for video) After her recent announcement that her child will be raised as Jewish, Drew Barrymore, has announced that she is undergoing a painful procedure because of the Jewish faith, according to press reports in California.
The longtime actress, 38, will undergo laser surgery to remove tattoos following her recent transition to the Jewish faith.
While the actress has not yet managed to become Jewish, Barrymore shared with a Hollywood, California based newspaper that she and her husband, Will Kopelman, will raise their four-month-old daughter, Olive, according to Jewish tradition.
“I have not made the conversion yet, but I will raise Olive according to the Jewish tradition. I had a very Jewish traditional wedding with Rabbi Rubinstein and I did the ketubah. We had the chuppah and wore yarmulkes. It’s a beautiful faith and I’m so honored to be around it.”
Barrymore also said that she wants to be buried in a Jewish cemetery, so she decided to have her tattoos removed from her body.
A source said: “Drew wants to be a Santa Barbara type mom and that clashes with tattoos. She is growing more conservative by the day.”
The actress has a total of six tattoos, a butterfly, a flower bouquet, two angels, a crescent moon and even a cross. She has tattoos on many different body parts ranging from her shoulder to her toe.
