Drew Barrymore Tells Why She Has Not Engaged in Sexual Activity Since Her 2016 Divorce From Will Kopelman!
After a fan claimed the actress “hates sex,” Drew Barrymore wrote a blog post in which she discussed her feelings on close relationships.
Barrymore made the initial remark on the report that Andrew Garfield had gone sexless for six months in order to get into character for “Silence.”
“Can you tell me what I’m doing wrong because six months doesn’t seem like a very long time? I was like, ‘Yeah so?’” the actress confessed during an episode of her talk show, “The Drew Barrymore Show.”
Barrymore has stated for the first time that she has not been in a romantic relationship since her 2016 divorce from Will Kopelman.
According to Drew Barrymore, she can go “years” without having sex.
“It’s possible for some people to end one relationship and immediately enter into another. In fact, that is quite acceptable! Certainly not even a little bit. I am not a judge! I am happy for them as they go! The reason is that it is effective for some individuals. I wasn’t able to make it work “Writing on her blog on a Sunday, Barrymore said.
To find grace and acceptance and to learn what our new normal of a blended family would be, “I needed to stay extremely chaste and honoring and in some sort of mourning of the loss of a nuclear family that I said I would have for my girls.”
“The process was lengthy. I’m glad I slowed down enough to do it “She went on. “That’s what I needed to do, and I respected myself for doing it, just as I respect the choices of everyone else. I’ve learned to chuckle at the fact that finding a partner isn’t high on my list of priorities right now, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be in the future. Time is something I’m going to need. My perspective on sexuality has also shifted.”
The 2016 divorce between Barrymore and Kopelman ended their four-year marriage. They have two daughters together, Olive and Frankie.
The “50 First Dates” star wrote a blog post stressing the differences between love and sex.
So, to set the record straight: “I do not dislike sex,” she wrote. “My entire life I’ve tried to find the peaceable woman that society idealizes, but now I see that what I really want is love and sex.
And what about the disappointment that comes with being an adult, married, and raising a family with the person you thought you’d spend the rest of your life with? In the mildest terms, it shook me to my very core. The love category, however, is one in which I am fortunate to be well-supplied. Not only do I have my two beautiful girls to love and cherish, but for the first time in my life, I am also learning to love myself.”
Billie Eilish, a 20-year-old musician, recently made comments regarding her porn viewing habits, which Barrymore cited as well.
“What Billie Eilish had to say on “The Howard Stern Show” about how young women should screen out harmful representations of sexuality in the media was quite insightful. Wow! As always, your help is greatly appreciated. In order to find our way, we require the guidance of freethinking, passionate outcasts.”
