Drew Barrymore: Being Single 'Feels Fine'

Sorry, Justin Long – it sounds like Drew Barrymore’s happy to be a single lady.

“If you’re 35 and single and it’s a choice, it feels fine,” the star told the August issue of ELLE. “So I didn’t settle with the wrong person yet. Big deal!”

However, Drew’s actions may speak louder than words. Her next film is the romantic comedy “Going The Distance,” in which she stars opposite Justin – her on-again, off-again boyfriend, who seems to be on again judging by the pair’s cuddly appearance at the 2010 GLAAD Media Awards in April as well as their red-carpet lip-lock at the Golden Globes in January.

But the two have kept quiet about their romantic status, with Drew, wearing a form-fitting black Calvin Klein dress on the mag’s cover, addressing other topics in the new interview.

“I don’t want to be vain or fearful, and I don’t think I’ll do anything [in terms of plastic surgery], but if I want to do something, I will,” Drew said of getting older. “From my perspective, there’s no reason to be afraid of aging, because if you age, you’re lucky! The alternative is death.”

The actor-producer-director added that film is still her focus.

“I make movies. I have a passion,” Drew said. “Puppies and daisies don’t accomplish anything. That’s not me at all.”
