    Drew Barrymore still finds her divorce from Will Kopelman "painful"

    The 45-year-old actress admitted she took it "really hard" when she split from the art consultant - with who she has children Olive, eight, and six-year-old Frankie - in 2016 after four years of marriage and it's taken her until now to be able to realise the good things about their union


    Speaking on 'Sunday Today with Willie Geist', she said: "I really did not take divorce well. I took it really hard. Even now, I’m just like, oh, it’s such a painful thing.

    “It took me five years to be able to speak with strength, articulation, perspective, hindsight, and see everything we did right.

    “Because when we were getting divorced, it felt like everything was just wrong. … I think it applies to everyone who thinks that something will be forever and it’s not.”

    And Drew - who was also married to producer Jeremy Thomas from 1994 to 1995 and comedian Tom Green from 2001 to 2002 - doesn't expect she'll marry again as she's "scared" to go looking for love.

    She wept as she said: "It’s like, I don’t think I’ve recovered from that.

    “I don’t know how to open that up again. It’s like something closed, and it stayed closed. I think I’m equally as scared to find love again as I would be as if it never happened.”

    However, the 'Santa Clarita Diet' star is thankful she and Will have stayed "united and connected" for the sake of their children.

    She said: "But, the good news is that his family and I sort of made the most important choice: to be so together and united and connected.

    “That’s, I guess, what they call family. I know from not growing up with any family whatsoever that that was the last thing I wanted to do for my daughters.”
