Drew Barrymore Says She Has Not Had An ‘Intimate’ Relationship Since 2016

In a personal essay shared on her website on October 16, Drew Barrymore shared that she has not been in an intimate relationship since she split from her ex-husband in 2016. Barrymore has previously discussed her relationship (or lack thereof) to sex, but she went into more detail now.

In the essay, titled “Rebels Who Love,” rain’s number one fan recalled how her relationship with sex has evolved over time into a healthier one. “Since entering life as a single mom, I have not been able to have an intimate relationship,” Barrymore wrote.

The actor and her then husband, art consultant Will Kopelman, announced their separation in 2016 and finalised their divorce later that year. The couple, who have two children together, had married in 2012.

“I am just in a completely different place in my life and maybe in the near future I will get into a relationship… but it simply hasn’t been my priority,” she continued in the essay. “So I’m not a person who needs sex and has to go out there and engage with people on that level. A relationship with a man has not been top of mind for me for a very long time. Some people can get out of a marriage or relationship and in the near future find themselves in another relationship. There is nothing wrong with that! Not one bit. I do not judge! I celebrate their journey! Because for some people that really works. It didn’t work for me,» she continued.

It must be noted that chaos queen Drew Barrymore, based on a post shared on her IG grid, wrote this blog in the Notes App (any writers out there can relate). Here’s the evidence:

Toward the end of the essay, Barrymore clarified that her abstinence doesn’t mean she hates sex.

“I have just finally come to the epiphany that love and sex are simply not the same thing,” she says. “So for the record, I do not hate sex! ”
