Who Is Drew Barrymore’s Partner?

As of today, Drew Barrymore seemed to be single and enjoying her life. She made the news on Monday (17 October 2022) when she opened up about her intimacy after a woman accused her of hating sex.

Drew Barrymore says that she hasn’t been in “an intimate relationship” since 2016, when she and her ex-husband, Will Kopelman, split up. Explaining in a blog post, she argued that physical intimacy doesn’t “mean” love.

“I have had the honor and a pleasure to actually work on myself and learn what parenting is, again something I was not exactly clear on growing up and I’ve had many learning curves thrown my way,” she wrote.

She continued: “I’ve been intimidated. I’ve been triumphant. I’ve been asked to be educated in every way I can be.”

Barrymore added that her divorce has made her more “cautious” with regard to her personal life.

“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,” Barrymore explained. “So I’m not a person who needs sex and has to go out there and engage with people on that level.”

“I am someone who is deeply committed to fostering how young girls, my daughters, and myself as a woman, are supposed to function in this world!” she added.

Barrymore clarified that she does not “hate sex” but instead has “finally come to the epiphany that love and sex are simply not the same thing.”

The ups and downs of Drew Barrymore’s personal life have been well documented and began when she was still a child, but her first marriage occurred for just two months in 1994 when she was 19 – to a Los Angeles bar owner named Jeremy Thomas.

In 1999 she met comedian Tom Green and married him the following year. They made cameo appearances in each other’s films, he in Charlie’s Angels and she in his directorial debut Freddy Got Fingered – but they were divorced in 2002.

In 2012 she married art consultant Will Kopelman, with whom she has two daughters – they divorced in 2016.
