Drew Barrymore is still finding love at 46.

The actress appeared on Gayle King’s talk show and opened up about her struggles with finding love online, especially her adventures (or misadventures) on dating apps.

The actress and host of The Drew Barrymore Show described her experiences on dating apps as being very hard, she said: “It’s so hard on the dating apps”.

The 46-year-old actress said that she feels like she is always swiping left (to swipe left would mean rejecting potential dates) because the other matches are “either too young” or she “doesn’t know who they are.”

Barrymore had previously sworn off dating apps but confessed that she still uses them sometimes – she explains: “I dip in and out every once in a while and then I, like, freak out and jump off”.

The actress then encouraged host Gayle King, who is 66-years-old, to give the app a go.

Got stood up on a date

Drew Barrymore revealed in an interview last September that she was actually using a dating app called Raya, which is apparently exclusive and favored by many celebrities and insiders of the entertainment and media industry.

She said that she got stood up on a date and that she didn’t match with anyone on the app after her friends apparently gave her a bloated sense of false confidence.”

They told her that she should try it and that she would do great – and as the actress herself describes it, it was a car wreck.

Acclaimed actress

Drew Barrymore first made her name as a child actress in the cult classic, Steven Speilberg-directed film E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, before gaining worldwide recognition and acclaim for films such as Charlie’s Angels, Batman Forever, The Wedding Singer, 50 First Dates, and Scream.

She is currently the host of her own talk show, the Drew Barrymore Show, which has since been renewed for a second season.
