Sex doesn’t seem to be at the top of Drew Barrymore’s to-do list.
During Tuesday’s episode of “The Drew Barrymore Show,” the talk show actor and host made the confession while talking about Andrew Garfield’s recent 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, then?’” Barrymore, 47, said of the 39-year-old actor’s acting method, which included starving, according to Decider.
Ross Mathews, a collaborator on the show, then intervened: “This is the headline: ‘Drew can last six months, no big deal'”, to which the star corrected him, clarifying that he could actually abstain from sex for “years” .
“What’s wrong with me that six months doesn’t seem very long?” Barrymore asked the audience about her.
The practice of the acting method: a technique where the actors attempt to inhabit their character’s psyche – it’s not a foreign concept the longtime actor.
In 2010, she earned a Golden Globe for her role as Edie Beale in “gray gardens,”Where he brought long-standing acting strategy into play.
“There are a lot of actors who have, Christian Bale, Jared Leto, Matthew McConaughey, you want to transform and fully engage, so I understand that,” Barrymore said of the often contested acting method.
“I certainly [did]in some projects, like when I did “Gray Gardens,” I did this movie where I played the real-life beloved woman Edie Beale, “Barrymore added.” I was so nervous that I didn’t really chat with everyone about set, I just stayed in character. “
