Drew Barrymore tried to convince Gayle King to try dating apps, with hilarious results.
During the “Drew’s News Hour” segment of the star’s daytime talk show Thursday, Barrymore and Ross Mathews shared their thoughts on dating apps, from good to bad to ugly.
“It’s so hard on dating apps,” said Barrymore, 46. “I feel like I’m always sliding left because they’re too young or don’t know who they are.”
A surprised King, 66, then asked the actress to confirm that she was back on dating apps after swearing them years ago.
“I’m on a dating app,” Barrymore admitted. “I dive in and out every now and then, then I panic and I jump. “
“If I could do it and people didn’t know it was me, I would,” King replied. “I wish I had been brave enough to do it, I do. I prefer to meet someone through a friend of a friend of a friend.
Mathews, 42, then suggested that the CBS News presenter go out on her own more often, an idea she didn’t really like.
“You have to go out alone and sit alone in a bar,” he advised. “If you are with friends, no one will approach you. “
“Ross, I went to the restaurant once on my own, so I’m sitting there with my book and the waiter walks up to me and says, ‘Excuse me, ma’am, your book is upside down,’ because that I wanted to pretend to read, ”admitted King with a laugh.
In July 2018, the “Never Been Kissed” star said she was no longer on dating apps, calling the experience “fun to try.”
While Instagram isn’t exactly a dating app, Barrymore recently sent a loving message to Leonardo DiCaprio via the platform, calling him “hot” while commenting on his post on climate change.
“You should be the only hot one, and not our planet!” she joked.
