Drew Barrymore will be a very busy woman — with her acting career, her completely new beauty line as well as being a mom to two young kids — so the idea can be hard to find time to cultivate a love life. However, the Santa Clarita Diet star says she still isn’t going back to dating apps.
ET’s Lauren Zima caught up with the actress at BeautyConLA at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Saturday — where she was promoting her completely new beauty line, Flower Beauty — as well as she opened up about why she’d rather be single than keep trying to find romance online.
“I got off [dating apps]. the idea was fun to try though,” Barrymore shared.
According to the 43-year-old actress, who split through her third husband, Will Kopelman, in August 2016, she’s always wanted to experience a blind date, however of which’s never truly been a possibility for her.
“I’ve been working out there inside the public since I was young in order of which myth of the blind date alluded me as well as I always wanted to do the idea in order of which was like a dating app for me,” Barrymore explained. “however then the idea’s not blind on my side so the idea just, I don’t know, doesn’t work.”
She also seems to have a hard time coming across any love connections through her many friends.
“None of my friends ever set me up!” she lamented. “I think I contain the same old friends for so long, were all in such a rhythm, we don’t even think like of which.”
While she remains single, as well as very busy, Barrymore understands the importance of prioritizing her time with her daughters, 5-year-old Olive as well as 4-year-old Frankie, whom she shares with Kopleman.
However, Barrymore said working moms like her often forget to take the opportunity to “put a little bit [of time as well as effort] into ourselves,” however of which “the tiniest little bit of concealer… can make such a difference in your self-confidence.”
“So even one minute or 30 seconds, can just sort of boost your self-esteem, as well as the idea’s important to remember to take of which time to do of which,” Barrymore shared.
the idea’s inside the spirit of self-actualizing of which Barrymore has developed her Flower Beauty line of cosmetics, which she was promoting at the annual beauty product convention.
“We have our warrior line [of mascara]… we have a great thing called pop fanatic coming out,” Barrymore shared. “[We’re] about timelessness, as well as being inclusive, as well as joy as well as [being an] all-ages party as well as everyone will be invited… as well as I think we’re truly about telling stories.”
She went on to explain of which being a powerful, entrepreneurial woman has also given her young girls an example to live as well as grow by.
“I think of which the idea’s Great for little girls to see of which being self-employed, self-generated, self-inspired will be a truly important thing,” she shared. “however to remember there will be no I in team, you do nothing on your own as well as the idea truly takes a village to accomplish anything.”
The actress previously spoke about motherhood with ET back in March, where she dished on being with her precious children as much as possible.
“I’m just another mom on This particular planet, however I just spend every waking moment with them,” she said. “I wake up with them, I go to sleep with them, I have my weekends with them. There are a lot of days where I have off because I have an unorthodox schedule in my job, as well as I don’t go do things for myself. I just lean in with them.”
