Facebook And Twitter Are Killing Romance, Says Drew Barrymore

The blonde beauty admits she’s a technophobe, unlike her Hollywood counterparts Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore and Jessica Alba.

“The fact that I’m begging for a phone call is pathetic in this age of technology. Plans are made by text – I can’t stand it.”

Drew also hates the way social networking websites have removed an air of mystery from first dates.

She told Marie Claire UK magazine: “I just don’t like this compulsive, instantaneous, over-information, lack-of-privacy, weirdo aspect of the world.

“If you meet someone, they already know everything. I am a romantic and it scares me.”

The actress, who won’t confirm if she is still in a relationship with Justin Long, also dismissed suggestions advances in technological communication have now made it easier to have a long-distance relationship.

“I think there’s a huge false sense of security in the technology of ‘we’re always connected so we can be apart’ because, unless you have a 3,000 mile-long penis, that’s not exactly the case.”

But she has admitted to trying phone sex during a long distance relationship – and found the erotic audio experience “weird”.

She said: “I’ve had successful phone sex – it can work.

“I think it’s f***ing weird – it’s super weird. I tried it though, with a little success at one point in my life, but it was just a thing you try, like wearing orange for a while. I don’t think it’s something I could live my life with.”
