Sex doesn’t seem to be on top of Drew Barrymorethe to-do list.
During Tuesday’s episode of ‘The Drew Barrymore Show,’ the actor and talk show host made the confession while talking about Andrew Garfieldrecent admission to stay single for six months in preparation for his role as a priest in Martin Scorsese’s 2016 film, “Silence.”
“I was like, ‘Yeah, so?'” Barrymore, 47, said of the 39-year-old actor’s method acting practices, which included starving himself, according to Decider.
Ross Mathews, a contributor to the show, then added: “It’s the title: ‘Drew can last six months, it’s okay'”, to which the star corrected him, specifying that she could actually abstain from sex for “years”.
“What’s wrong with me that six months doesn’t seem like a long time?” Barrymore asked the audience about his show.
The practice of method play — a technique in which the actors attempt to inhabit their character’s psyche – is not a foreign concept to the longtime actor.
In 2010, she scored a Golden Globe for her role as Edie Beale in “gray gardens,where she put longtime acting strategy into play.
“There are a lot of actors who have, Christian Bale, Jared Leto, Matthew McConaughey, want to transform and fully engage, so I understand that,” Barrymore said of the oft-challenged method of acting.
“I certainly [did]on some projects, like when I did ‘Grey Gardens’, that movie I did where I played beloved real wife Edie Beale,” Barrymore added. “I was so nervous that I didn’t really chat with everyone on set, just stayed in character.”
