Drew Barrymore has been craving Chinese noodles throughout her pregnancy.

The 38-year-old actress is expecting her second child with husband Will Kopelman, but she admits her desire for food is different to when she was carrying her daughter Olive 15 months ago.

She told E! news: The [craving] with Olive was tamales. Anything tamale. I love tamales. With this little lovely lady it's like pan-fried noodles from any Chinese restaurant. I drive by them and I fantasise about them. I find myself like pulling over a lot for food. Like the car just goes off the lane and over to the restaurant."

Despite her addiction to greasy food, the blonde beauty insists her weight is "fine" but she's having to keep an eye on it.

She explained: "I'm keeping it in check. I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be. I gain like about 40 pounds a pregnancy, which is totally fine."

However, Drew admitted recently that she has no intention of cutting back on her snacks because she's just embracing her figure.

She said earlier this week: "I just eat everything I want, which isn't healthy. I'm bigger this time than my first time. My doctor the other day was like, 'Yeah, so I think maybe pull back. A little bit.'

"I was like, really? I thought I was doing great. I still fit into those jeans - they hurt when I wear them -- but I still fit into them. I don't ever pose, 'I'm just so fabulous and I lose it like that.' I want to enjoy the pasta right now! What's 10 lbs?"
