Drew Barrymore Confirms She Will Never Get Married Again
After being married three times, Drew Barrymore is now saying she’s done.
While discussing her upcoming daytime talk show with People, the actress didn’t hold back.
“Never. Never, never, never. I will never get married again!” she said. “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.”
She continued, “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.”
Still, she’s not saying no to LOVE.
“It doesn’t mean that maybe I wouldn’t like to meet someone, especially when my kids go off to college,” she added. “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.”
Of course, Drew married her first husband, bar owner Jeremy Thomas, in 1994, filing for divorce just two months later.
In 2001, she married comedian Tom Green and separated after just five months. Nearly a decade later, she married art consultant Will Kopelman in 2012, with whom she shares daughters Frankie, 7, and Olive, 6. They divorced in 2016.
“I am a hopeless romantic, and everybody on this planet needs love in some form,” she said. “And we are constantly contending with relationships. Love and those relationships may look [different] for people. But it’s there at its core. So, I can’t help but want to explore and examine that.”
We love you, Drew! Always follow your heart.
