'Not That Into You' star Drew Barrymore not a fan of high-tech dating


UPI News Service, 02/05/2009 

Hollywood actress Drew Barrymore says that like her character in "He's Just Not That Into You" she isn't a fan of technology when it comes to dating.

"I wanted to make (my character) the one who is dismayed by technology and it was just a perfect fit for me. I just really liked her. Everything happens organically for a reason, so I felt like a Mary, my character," Barrymore -- who also served as a producer on the film -- told reporters in Los Angeles recently.

"I still have a wall phone and I love tape and shoot on film, so this whole 'you're in your pocket and you have to respond immediately and be quirky and quippy...' No guys call any more; it's all texts," Barrymore lamented. "I'm awkward enough on the phone. I'm awkward answering this question. It's really difficult and I wanted to discuss that in the film. It's so important in our day and age of Facebook and MySpace and the Internet and texting. It's just a new ballgame, so I wanted to address that."

The ensemble comedy, which co-stars Jennifer Aniston, Ben Affleck, Justin Long, Ginnifer Goodwin, Bradley Cooper, Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Connelly and Kevin Connolly, opens in U.S. theaters Friday.
