According to the 43-year-old actress, who separated from her third husband, will Kopelman, in August 2016, she always wanted to have the experience of a blind date, but that is never really an option for her.
“I work there in the public since I was young, so that myth of the blind date eluded me and I always wanted to do it so that was like a dating app for me,” Barrymore explained. “But he is not blind on my side so it just, I don’t know, doesn’t work.”
