Drew Barrymore says she can go ‘years’ without having sex

During a segment of her daytime talk show, Drew Barrymore hilariously admitted that she can go “years” without having sex.

The subject came up while discussing Andrew Garfield’s six-month celibacy in preparation for his role in 2016’s Silence.

“Well, I get abstaining from sex — I did that my entire 20s,” joked guest Ross Matthews, 42, during the episode, according to Entertainment Tonight.
Barrymore added, “I was like, ‘What’s wrong with me that six months doesn’t seem like a very long time?’ I was like, ‘Yeah, so?’”

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 mean, we buried the lede there. That’s the headline: ‘Drew can go six months, no big deal,’ ” said Ross.

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.

On The Drew Barrymore Show back in March, the host told Mathews that she sometimes dreams about her exes. When Mathews asked her if she’s “ever had a dream of an ex that made you go ‘Oooh?’ ” Barrymore replied, “I think that’s the only place I’m getting action these days, Ross.”

She continued, “Every six months I’ll have the hottest dream and I’ll be like, ‘Oh my God.’ And I’m like, ‘Oh, I am libidinous and alive.’”

When Mathews paused to ask what libidinous means, Barrymore explained, “Libidinous — like I have a libido. Like I’m alive and I have a pulse.”

Mathews joked, “I just love that in your dreams one of your exes was all up in your libidinous.” After the two shared a laugh, Barrymore concluded, “Dreams, they’re a safe space to work a lot of things out.”
