After two failed marriages and a string of broken romances, Hollywood actress Drew Barrymore has finally come to terms with being unlucky in love.
Her most recent relationship, a 10-month romance with 30-year-old actor Justin Long, ended last summer and while he fell into the arms of actress Kirsten Dunst, Barrymore is still unattached, reports mirror.co.uk.
“I've been single for months now and my priorities have changed so much. I've turned my attention towards my friends and the causes I believe in. It's been about learning who I am, not through a man but for myself. I'm happy with my priorities now,” she said.
Her two marriages - to Welsh-born bar owner Jeremy Thomas in March 1994 and comedian Tom Green in July 2001 did not last long, while her boyfriends have included actors like Jamie Walters, Val Kilmer, Luke Wilson, and musicians Alec Pure, Eric Erlandson, Joel Shearer and The Strokes' drummer Fabrizio Moretti.
“I have never really understood how I should feel or behave in a relationship. 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,” revealed the actress.
