THE HAMPTONS, NEW YORK: Drew Blythe Barrymore has revealed that she can go "years" without having sex on a recent episode of her daytime talk show, 'The Drew Barrymore Show'. 

The actress, producer, and talk show host joked, "What’s wrong with me that six months doesn’t seem like a very long time?" as she and co-host Ross Mathews discussed actor Andrew Garfield's decision to refrain from sex for half a year to prepare to play a priest in the 2016 historical drama 'Silence.'

"I was like, ‘Yeah, so?’" said the 47-year-old to Garfield's decision. Ross Mathews, 42, then chimed in, "I mean, we buried the lede there. That's the headline: 'Drew can go six months, no big deal,'" to which Barrymore corrected him saying she could go without sex for "years".

It was in the year 2016 when the Golden Globe winner divorced her third husband, Will Kopelman, with whom shares two daughters, Olive, 9, and Frankie, 8. The actress was previously married to Tom Green and Jeremy Thomas. Ever since then, Barrymore has been leading a pretty busy life, and clearly, her hectic schedule between raising her children, running her own talk show, and establishing herself as a businesswoman, seems to have left her with no space for love. The 'He’s Just Not That Into You' star had previously told 'Today Show' that she was "scared to find love again after her divorce and felt a part of her had closed."

"I’m not there yet," she said on her show. "I have two young girls, and I don’t want to bring people home. I think that it would take me a very long time to meet someone and get to know them before I could ever even introduce them to my daughters." The star had said she convinced herself it was her choice not to date for a long period of time but "I don’t think I’ve said out loud that it’s really because I have two daughters." Instead she calls herself "old fashioned" when it comes to love or dating. Barrymore, however, confessed to Mathews last year that she had hooked up with a partner in a car.
