Hollywood star Drew Barrymore is not a fan of email, and prefers people to take the time to write her a letter instead. The Music and Lyrics star, who refuses to confirm speculation that she has again rekindled her romance with on-off boyfriend Justin Long, thinks it is more meaningful to pen a note, instead of sending an email or other electronic communication, reports entertainment website Contactmusic.drewbarrymore

“I don’t want to communicate via email. You are thoughtful when you write it and someone can read it and hold onto it and go back to it,” Barrymore said. “For me, there’s something very dangerous to have everything so instantaneous.”

The 35-year-old star admitted that she listens to music in cassette tapes, use a typewriter and shoot movies on film rather than digitally. She pines for a time in the past, when people were more formal.

“There’s a part of me that misses the grace and formalities of the past, like when gentlemen wore hats and opened doors,” she says.
