Drew Barrymore: Phone sex can be funny

Count Drew Barrymore as another celeb who isn’t enamored with technology.

The star of the upcoming romantic comedy “Going the Distance” admitted to Nylon magazine that she just doesn’t think technology has made staying in touch any easier.

“Ironically, with all this, ‘We’re now more connected than ever with technology,’ I don’t think we’ve ever been farther apart,” Barrymore said in the magazine’s August issue. “I think it’s bull[expletive]. Everyone feels more connected but they’re weirdly disconnected.”

But when it comes to long-distance relationships, like the one portrayed in Barrymore's film, the 35-year-old actress said she does see the humor in using technology to get connected in more explicit ways.

“You know, phone sex going awry is just a funny concept to me,” she told Nylon about a scene from the film. “I thought, This is going to be one of those scenes where we have to go balls out, and if it doesn’t work, it’s going to be editing room floor crap.”

Another funny concept for Barrymore? Her  "Distance" co-star (and sometimes-boyfriend) Justin Long dropping trou in the movie.

“It’s funny because usually it’s the girl who’s naked,” Barrymore said. “I was like, that’s right [expletive], the tables are turned.”

Barrymore has come to savor such moments in her career, but not for the reason you might think.

“I had a big gap in my life where I wasn’t allowed to work at all because no one would hire me, which was great because I think you need that humility,” she told Nylon. “You have to have everything taken away, or you have to have a major reality check, so that you always appreciate what you have.”
