Drew Barrymore ‘still in shock’ over her divorce
Drew Barrymore is still "in shock" about her divorce.
The 41-year-old actress and art consultant Will Kopelman – who have daughters, four-year-old Olive and Frankie, two, together – ended their marriage in August 2016 but Drew admitted she is not ready to start dating again because she is still coming to terms with the split.
Speaking to Andy Cohen on SiriusXM, she said: "I’m not open to it. I’m just still in shock about everything. It’s going to take time."
And when Drew is finally ready to start dating again, don’t expect her to use apps to find love.
She said: "I’ve never been on a dating app and I now know that’s the current thing. My girlfriends are on it, so it is fun for me to look over their shoulder while they’re going through it.
"By the way, if you want to date an actor or musician, they’re all on Raya. It’s like looking through a SAG portfolio and going, ‘I want to date him.’
"I remember when you were just waiting for that phone to ring and you were worried because you would miss their call, and then the answering machine manifested and it was tapes and you … kept checking the tape. There’s a part of me that still dates from that perspective and I can’t stand when people want to talk on the phone all the time or text or email.
"My concern with the dating app is always like am I going to be that person that classically meets a psycho and then I end up murdered that night. So that alone was a turn off."
