Drew Barrymore reveals her awful experience on the iOS dating app, Raya.
Drew Barrymore recently gave an interview on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.
Raya is an exclusive, members-only app that started out as a dating app but then it added features to promote professional networking for members of the entertainment industry.
It’s also an unofficial site for high-profile personalities, including tech industry insiders, athletes, business executives, and more.
Following her divorce from art consultant Will Kopelman, the Charlie’s Angels actress admitted that she turned to dating apps on encouragement from her friends.
Drew Barrymore Got Stood Up By A Restauranter
Barrymore describes the experience as a “car wreck.” She added–
I got stood up. I didn’t match with anyone and my friends gave me this sort of bloated sense of false confidence. They were like, “You should try it. You will do great.”
She noted that the person who stood her up was not a celebrity but rather a restaurateur.

‘I definitely had fun with it. And I’ve always wanted to go on a blind date but my life got in the way of that,’ shared the ET star. ‘So, I thought online dating will satiate that desire. Yeah no, it was a real wakeup call.’

Barrymore split with husband after four years of marriage. During the divorce, she admitted that it was hard to accept that their relationship did not last. She also admitted that her whole was falling apart. The ex-couple share two kids and are great co-parents.
Other Celebrities on Dating Apps
The 50 First Dates star did not mention any names but said that there are many celebrities on Raya. She describes it as “looking through UsWeekly.”
Other than the Golden Globe winner, some other celebrities have admitted to using online dating to find their match. That includes 21 Jump Street actor Channing Tatum and Basic Instinct star Sharon Stone.
Tatum was spotted on Raya, after his break up with “Bang Bang” hitmaker, Jessey J in 2019. Tatum’s profile reads “And yes, I used to be a stripper. Sorry,” while his profile song is from crooner D’Angelo, titled “Brown Sugar.”
While Stone mentioned that she attempted to use Bumble. Unfortunately, her profile got suspended, as many users thought it was fake.
“I went on the @bumble dating [site], and they closed my account. Some users reported that it couldn’t possibly be me!” she tweeted. “Hey @bumble, is being me exclusionary? Don’t shut me out of the hive.”
The dating app, however, immediately restored her account.
