The ‘Santa Clarita Diet’ star – who divorced Will Kopelman in 2016 after four years of marriage – is following Jane Fonda’s advice to avoid the opposite sex.

“I’m not closed for business but I have been exactly in that mentality for the past five years, thinking I just don’t have the bandwidth, I don’t know if I’m willing to open up, I just can’t fit it in,” she says speaking on her talk show.

Back in 2018, Drew revealed she has come off dating sites.

“I got off dating apps. It was fun to try though. I’ve been working out there in the public since I was young so that myth of the blind date alluded me and I always wanted to do it, so that was like a dating app for me. But then it’s not blind on my side so it just, I don’t know, doesn’t work,” she says.

The star has been dated the likes of Justin Long, Tom Green and David Arquette - she's also been married three times.
