Hollywood actress Drew Barrymore says she has lost count of the number of times she has cried over a guy.
The 35-year-old beauty admits that many of her romances have ended in heartache, Showbiz Spy reported online.
"God, I don't know the number and I don't know the count. But I keep telling myself I should never go into love the next time, remembering that I've been hurt before," Barrymore said.
"I've spent a lot of time in my life dedicating myself to love or the pursuit of love or the understanding of love. And now I've stopped believing in happy endings and I've started believing in good days," she added.
The American beauty shot to fame as a child starring in Steven Spielberg's E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial.
She quickly became one of Hollywood's most recognized child actors, going on to establish herself in mainly comic roles.
"I didn't have the kind of childhood or family life that would have given me any perspective on what a happy home or relationship would feel like. So I haven't had as much success in my relationships as I would have liked," Barrymore said.Following a turbulent childhood which was marked by drug and alcohol abuse and two stints in rehab, Barrymore wrote the 1990 autobiography, Little Girl Lost.
"You can't live your life blaming your failures on your parents and what they did or didn't do for you. You're dealt the cards that you're dealt. I realized it was a waste of time to be angry at my parents and feel sorry for myself. I have been much more objective about my childhood and my relationship with my mother in these last few years," she said.
