After many jokes about her lackluster dating life, Drew Barrymore revealed during today’s episode of The Drew Barrymore Show that she finally has a new man in her sphere — and the actress-turned-talk show host couldn’t help but gush over the mystery guy to guest host Gayle King.
Barrymore opened up her Drew’s News segment by dishing on the “positive experience” she had on her dating app. The 50 First Dates star explained what she looks for in a relationship, including sending postcards and making a plan. Simple things, if you ask us.
“Someone I’ve been hanging out with is happy to send postcards,” she said. “And no one I’ve dated in years would be willing to do that and it seems like such a small thing.”
While Barrymore didn’t reveal who she is dating, she did tell the audience that it was “someone from my past that I would’ve never run into otherwise,” adding that it was “the unique spin I wasn’t expecting.”
When King asked what the current status of their relationship is, the actress said, “Still seeing. And so far, this is what it has proved to me: that there are people out there that can be nice, he’ll call on the phone, I’ll get a postcard, we’ll make a plan.” We love to see it!
As for King, who is still single and ready to mingle, she is looking for a man who isn’t intimidated by her success to share her life with — but he has to be taller than her.
“This is very shallow but I do want somebody that makes me feel that they can just pick me up over their shoulders and go, ‘Come on Gayle!’” she told the audience, to which Barrymore quipped, “The guy I’m dating could not do that.”
OK, Drew! We love a short king.
