- Drew Barrymore said during a recent episode of her talk show that she can go “years” without having sex.
- Barrymore was discussing Andrew Garfield reportedly staying celibate for six months for a role.
- “What’s wrong with me that six months doesn’t seem like a very long time?” she asked.
Drew Barrymore hilariously revealed during a recent episode of her daytime talk show that she can go “years” without having sex.
Barrymore and cohost Ross Matthews were chatting on Tuesday’s episode about Andrew Garfield’s admission that he was celibate for half a year in order to prepare for his role as a priest in the 2016 film “Silence.”
“What’s wrong with me that six months doesn’t seem like a very long time?” Barrymore said to the studio audience.
According to the actress, she wasn’t that impressed with Garfield’s period of abstinence. Garfield previously told Marc Maron on the “Glow” actor’s “WTF” podcast that he had some “pretty trippy” experiences while “starving [himself] of sex and food” ahead of filming “Silence.”
“I was like, ‘Yeah, so?'” Barrymore joked.
“That’s the headline: ‘Drew can go six months, no big deal,” Matthews added. Barrymore then corrected him, saying she could go “years” without having sex.
Barrymore has two children — daughters Olive, 9, and Frankie, 8, — with ex-husband Will Kopelman, whom she divorced in 2016. She was previously married to Jeremy Thomas from 1994 to 1995, and comedian Tom Green from 2001 to 2002.
The “Charlie’s Angels” star is known for her no-holds-barred approach to life.
In July, Barrymore shared a joyful video of herself enjoying the rain to TikTok, and it subsequently went viral on the popular video-sharing platform.
The actress frolics in the courtyard of an apartment building during a downpour in the short clip. She then looks up at the sky and laughs, telling viewers: “Whenever you can, go out into the rain. Do not miss the opportunity!”
