Drew Barrymore, allegedly, swore off men after her tumultuous divorce from Will Kopelman.
But according to Woman’s Day, this changed after Cameron Diaz stepped in. The actress, allegedly, encouraged Drew Barrymore to go back into the dating scene, and she immediately agreed.
Drew Barrymore, Tom Cruise constantly talking to each other
A source told the tabloid that Barrymore has started talking to Tom Cruise regularly. The A-listers have been friends for years. But it is only now that they’ve, allegedly, started to see each other in a different light.
“Drew has been talking to Tom Cruise a lot during the lockdown, and they’re now on the verge of a full-blown romance. Tom thinks Drew’s adorable and she, of course, says he’s totally dreamy and gets better looking with age. They’re both single and open to a relationship. The timing is perfect,” the source said.
Drew Barrymore crushing on Tom Cruise for years
The insider also claimed that Barrymore has had a crush on Cruise for years. But she only recently got his number from Diaz.
The tabloid’s claims are just a rehash of an equally dubious story from OK! magazine last week. But their source added more context to the, allegedly, flourishing relationship between Drew Barrymore and Cruise.
“There was a moment not too long ago when Drew realized she was ready to date again and Tom was the first guy who came to mind. She was really nervous to call. But as soon as Tom answered and heard her voice, it was smooth sailing. He was really happy to hear from Drew. They had a great talk,” the source said.
The actress loves her independence
However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt. Barrymore recently confirmed that she’s single.
Last year, the 50 First Dates star also said that she’s happy to be single because she enjoys being independent.
“A type of love that does not require a romantic partnership and navigation… I have fought my way to deeper happiness on my own, and I love being independent! It just rules. I am also lucky enough to have two young amazing kids and a full-time job, and rad friends. So I’m not sitting around bummed out. I feel stupid grateful. But I’m still a romantic at heart. As for today, don’t waste the day being sad about what you don’t have! Be happy about what you do have. It’s there. I promise,” Drew Barrymore wrote on Instagram.
