Dating in the digital age is tough—just ask Drew Barrymore.
The Santa Clarita Diet actress stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show Friday, where she spoke candidly—and hilariously—about her recent dating disasters. “Here’s the deal: Ever since I was a teenager and excited about the idea of dating someone, I always had fantasized about a blind date—which I had never and will never be able to have—on my side, at least,” Barrymore said. “When the whole dating apps started, I remember eHarmony said, ‘Answer 25 questions and we will place you.’ I was like, ‘What are the 25 questions? And who would they place me with?'”
Years went by before Barrymore mustered up the courage to sign up for Raya, which a friend had been using. “I heard Amy Schumer saying she met her boyfriend on there,” she explained. “Then one night, I’m flying home by myself and I’m like, ‘Screw it! I’m going to fulfill my fantasy and go on a dating app! Do a blind date, but not really.’ So, I went on it and no one responded.”
To Barrymore’s credit, it wasn’t for a lack of effort on her part.
