Drew Barrymore: I’ve been hurt a lot

Drew Barrymore says she has lost count of the number of times she has cried over a guy. The actress — who has an on/off romance with actor Justin Long, her costar in new movie Going The Distance — says lots of her romances have ended in heartache.

“God, I don’t know the number and I don’t know the count. But I keep telling myself I should never go into love the next time ­remembering that I’ve been hurt before,” she said.

“I’ve spent a lot of time in my life dedicating myself to love or the pursuit of love or the understanding of love. And now I’ve stopped believing in happy endings and I’ve started believing in good days.

“I didn’t have the kind of childhood or family life that would have given me any perspective on what a happy home or relationship would feel like. So I haven’t had as much success in my relationships as I would have liked.

“You can’t live your life blaming your failures on your parents and what they did or didn’t do for you. You’re dealt the cards that you’re dealt. I realized it was a waste of time to be angry at my parents and feel sorry for myself.

“I have been much more objective about my childhood and my relationship with my mother in these last few years.

“There were several low points in my life and they all helped make up my character so I probably wouldn’t want to do away with them because I like being flawed. It helped me grow and change and become better and stronger.

“I feel excited about the last few years of my life. I pride myself on them and I didn’t know I had that much discipline.

“I’ve worked really hard. I want to make sure I have a sense of balance between work and life because work is my life and the lines can get really blurry.”
