Drew Barrymore has been divorced three times.

"I had so much shame around divorce and for some reason something happened and I said, 'I'm no longer willing to feel this way," the 50 First Dates star, 49, explained. "And it just lifted from me."

"And I just thought, when you get a divorce, you're saving the precious commodity we have on this planet, which is only our time," continued Barrymore.

Though Barrymore insisted she has no interest in walking down the aisle again, the former child star is open to dating. In fact, in October 2023, she confusingly confessed that she's been in a relationship "sort of in and around the last three years." However, she's never identified the person in question, whom she met via the exclusive dating app Raya.

The status of that romance is currently unclear, but earlier this year, she hinted she may be single again when giving dating advice to fans.

"No matter how badly you've ever, ever, been hurt, you have to not believe that that is what is in your future or that someone else deserves that baggage," she expressed. "You have to be brave, and you just have to be convinced that each individual, circumstance, person and situation is probably going to present [itself] differently."

"It is not the repetitive fear that you have in your mind that you project," she stated, then admitting, "I'm talking to myself."
