Drew Barrymore Says She’ll Never Get Married Again
When I think Drew Barrymore, I think of child rehab, Charlie’s Angels, daisies, and the term “hopeless romantic” (her words). Hence all the failed marriages. Number one was way back in ’95, to bar owner Jeremy Thomas. They broke up after two months. Then she got hitched to Tom Green (pictured above in all his Canuck goateed glory), and that survived five months (improvement!). Her third husband was art consultant/son of the former CEO of Chanel (oo la la!) Will Kopelman,. Will is also the father of her two daughters, Olive, 7, and Frankie, 6. They lasted an entire presidential term: 2012-2016, which is eons in Barrymore marriage time. According to math, patterns, and exponents, 45-year-old Drew’s next marriage should last roughly fifty years. But she insists she’s done with that shit.
“Never. Never, never, never. I will never get married again!” she says. “And I also believe people should not say the word ‘never,’ and I will never, with a capital N-E-V-E-R, never get married. It’s like I have two options: Cut it—this has not worked—or be Elizabeth Taylor. And I have too many more to go. I never want to be entwined with someone like that again ever. You break up, and you move on. You get divorced, and it’s just so different. I love that we are trying to hold on to an institution that [started] when the closest person to you for companionship was a three-day horse ride away and your life span was 30 years.”
Wow! Drew seems pretty damn adamant that she will N-E-V-E-R marry anyone ever again, and — what’s that? Oh, Drew has something else to add:
“It doesn’t mean that maybe I wouldn’t like to meet someone, especially when my kids go off to college,” she says. “Or a year from now, I could be totally in love. I’m open to it; I’m not seeking it. My cup runneth over. I have so much love in my life.”
OK. She’s totally getting hitched again. Do you think Elizabeth Taylor thought she’d ever remarry after Mike Todd died in a plane crash? Or after divorcing Richard Burton the second time? Definitely not. But she did. A bunch. Because she’s a dreamy Pisces fool for love, just like Drew.
Drew goes on to say she wants to “explore and examine” relationships and love on her new talk show, which is set to premiere next week. She also says she’s tried her hand at the online dating thing:
“I’ve tried it. I went on a couple of dates,” she says. “A lot of people totally ghosted me. And one time I was waiting to go on a date, and at the time we were supposed to meet he just wrote, ‘Yeah, I can’t.’ But I’d rather hang out with my friends.”
Who ghosts THEE Drew Barrymore? Like, even I’ve never been ghosted before a date. After? Many times. And as a dreamy Pisces fool for love, I mourn every single one of my lost loves.
