Drew Barrymore on why she isn’t ready to date + talks new show ‘Santa Clarita Diet’
Before joining Santa Clarita Diet costar Timothy Olyphant for a Town Hall hosted by Andy Cohen, Drew Barrymore stopped by sister-in-law Jill Kargman’s own Radio Andy studio for a warm hello.
During the Town Hall, Drew Barrymore said she’s “not ready” for a new romance.
“I’m still in shock from everything,” she said. “I’m going to take a while.”
“Would you consider going on Raya or going on Tinder or something like that?” asked Cohen, referring to the exclusive service for celebrities.
“I’ve never been on a dating app, and I now know that’s the current thing, and my girlfriends are on it and so it is fun for me to look over their shoulder while they’re going through it,” she said. “If you want to date an actor or musician, they’re all on Raya. It’s the craziest thing. I’m like, but he’s so famous! What? It’s like looking through a SAG portfolio, a Screen Actors Guild guide, and going, ‘I want to date him.’ It’s crazy.”
This was all news to Olyphant, who later quipped, “Like people are like, ‘Oh, Chris Hemsworth, swipe left, swipe right?’”
