THE HAMPTONS, NEW YORK: Drew Blythe Barrymore has recently revealed that she has not been in an "intimate relationship" since her breakup with Will Kopelman in 2016, after which her "view on sex has truly changed". The actress, producer, and talk show host, 47, posted a photo of herself holding a laptop on Sunday morning and urged followers to read a "very personal story" she wrote.

Barrymore said in the blog, "I’m not a person who needs sex and has to go out there and engage with people on that level. I am someone who is deeply committed to fostering how young girls, my daughters, and myself as a woman, are supposed to function in this world!"

The 'He's Just Not That Into You' star, Golden Globe winner wrote in her talk show blog, "At nearly 48 I have very different feelings about intimacy than I did growing up. I did not have role model parents and I engaged with people in grown up ways since a tender age!" She previously stated that she was seeking "companionship, validation, excitement, pleasure, hedonism, fun, and adventure through sexual activity."

Because she lacks a "time machine" or other means of "changing" her past, the mother of two said she prefers to "look at it through a positive lens." Barrymore continued, "after two kids and a separation from their father that has made me cautious, I have had the pleasure of shifting my focus when it comes to love for myself and my two daughters. I know that does not include a man nor has it for a while."

She then gave her therapist credit for enlightening her by saying "Sex is not love! It is the expression of love." She wrote, "I have searched my whole life to have words like that to help me understand the difference and now, thanks to him, I do. And since entering life as a single mom, I have not been able to have an intimate relationship."

The Blended star asserted that although she might "get into a relationship" soon, it "simply hasn't been" her top priority. She said a "relationship with a man has not been top of mind for me for a very long time." The star said, "Some people can get out of a marriage or relationship and in the near future find themselves in another relationship. There is nothing wrong with that! Not one bit. I do not judge! I celebrate their journey!"

She jokingly described herself as a "naughty monkey" who is "rebellious, weird, comedic, and wacky" and "really doesn't want anyone highly involved" in her decisions. The actress then clarified that she does not "hate sex," but rather had "the epiphany that love and sex are simply not the same thing."

MEAWW reported earlier that 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."
