Drew Barrymore has a reputation for being unfailingly honest with her fans, and now she's opened up about what her sex life is like these days.
She made the revelation on her Drew's News podcast, where she explained that she's 'done everything' she ever wanted to explore sexually.
However, she was coy about the specifics and said: "I never will tell, and it's just for me."
She added: "I can understand certain kinky things. Listen, I've tried everything. I’ve done everything - that's why I'm so boring now."
But on the topic of 'kinky things', she admitted that she didn't know if she 'was into' everything she explored, explaining: "I just wanted to try."
"Those days are long gone," she said. "Back when I was younger, I had all the energy in the world. But now, no."
Barrymore has not been in a relationship since she split up with her ex husband, Will Kopelman, who she was married to between 2012 and 2016.
She wrote in in an October blog post: "I'm not a person who needs sex and has to go out there and engage with people on that level.
"I am someone who is deeply committed to fostering how young girls, my daughters, and myself as a woman, are supposed to function in this world."
Barrymore has two young daughters, Olive, 10, and Frankie, eight.
The actress said she can go 'years' without sex when fellow actor Andrew Garfield admitted that he had been celibate for six months to prepare himself for playing the role of a priest.
She explained that she had to take time away from sex and relationships in order to heal from her divorce.
"I needed to stay very celibate and honouring and in some sort of state of morning of the loss of a nuclear family that I swore I would have for my daughters and to find grace and acceptance and what our new normal of a blended family would be.
"It took time. I'm proud of myself that I took that time."
"I am just in a completely different place in my life and maybe in the near future I will get into a relationship," she added, "but it simply hasn't been my priority.
"So I'm not a person who needs sex and has to go out there and engage with people on that level."
