Drew Barrymore appears to be in a pretty good place following her divorce from ex-husband Will Kopelman, and the positive vibes were on full display during her appearance on Thursday’s The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
After talking about “figuring it out with grace” when it comes to co-parenting her two daughters, the host decided it was time to see how Barrymore would handle the wild world of a dating app.
“My other girlfriend said she was like going on a three-month, no-swiping thing. I had no idea what that meant,” the Santa Clarita Diet star said as DeGeneres tried to figure out if swiping left meant you liked the person or not (for clarity: swiping left means “pass”).
Finally, the first gent’s face appeared on a screen: Harry Styles. After struggling to see him at first, Barrymore declared, “No! He’s like 2!” John Mayer then received a swipe left without any commentary and Prince Harry, too, was a pass. “Not realistic,” she said. Later, she had no qualms turning down Brad Pitt, Lenny Kravitz, Jake Gyllenhaal, and more.
“Even I would have chosen four of those guys,” DeGeneres said. But when she showed her guest a photo of John Oliver, Barrymore became extremely excited, screaming, “Yes!”
“Totally for me, John Oliver would be the one,” she added. “But he’s married, so I’m so sorry to his wife, by the way. I’m not being lascivious.”
One other star got a “hot” from Barrymore. You’ll have to watch the video to see which Game of Thrones star earned that descriptor.
