Drew Barrymore has finally revealed exactly why she didn't call Christian Bale after the two went on a date as teenagers. While I had no idea that the pair ever dated, however briefly, apparently they did, though ultimately the star-studded pair wasn't to be.
Speaking to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, Barrymore spilled the goss on the date, and finally gave a reason for her snub all those years ago. On why she never called, she said:
"I don't know! He was so nice... I wasn't like super boy crazy. I had a lot of fish to fry, like I had big problems in my world for many years, like in good ways - things you gotta overcome... Boys is like very secondary."
And to be fair, given the fact that Drew had been in and out of rehab twice by the age of 14, and emancipated from her parents by 15, she definitely did have bigger fish to fry at the time.
These days both Drew Barrymore and Christian Bale might not be married to each other, but they are both happily married! Bale married his wife, Sandra Blažić in 2000, and the couple now have two children, and Barrymore is married to art consultant, Will Kopelmen, with whom she has two young daughters.
