Drew Barrymore striking out with Kevin Connolly

Drew Barrymore
Drew Barrymore, 33, is said to be interested Kevin Connolly, 34, who is featured in her film He’s Just Not That Into You. Connolly is playing hard to get with Drew, though, and while it sounds like there may be some spark of romance between them there’s little chance it will turn into something long term, according to the National Enquirer. It sounds like this story is based on someone seeing them together at a bar, where Drew was putting the moves on Kevin and getting only a cold response:

Hollywood cutie Drew Barrymore fell for “Entourage” hottie Kevin Connolly on the set of their upcoming film, “He’s Just Not That Into You.” But while Drew is looking for a serious romance, insiders tell The Enquirer that the happy bachelor just wants to have fun…

Drew, 33, and Kevin, 34, were spotted having drinks together at the Laurel Tavern in Studio City, Calif, on Dec. 21. While Drew poured on the charm with touchy-feeling gestures, Kevin played it cool and barely showed her any affection at all.

“Drew was practically throwing herself at Kevin,” an eyewitness revealed. “They were at the tavern for almost two hours, and Drew was definitely the one initiating all the physical contact.”

While the two have been friends for a while, Drew is now falling for Kevin, and thinks there’s a real chance they’ll be together long-term.

You can see Drew falling for someone and hoping he returns her affections. She’s a woman who seems like she’s in love with the idea of being in love and throws herself fully into a new relationship. Once the spark wears off, though, she has trouble sticking around and weathering the inevitable issues that come up. She was way too revealing with the press in her last relationship with Justin Long and the next time she gets in a serious relationship she’ll hopefully keep it closer to her chest. Maybe Connelly isn’t that “into” her, or maybe Drew is just super flirty and hoping for a good time.

    I thought she was dating the guy from “dumping sarah marshal’?

  2. seriously wtf says:

    I see Kevin as the type who rather date girls are kinda dingy & not much to offer. Like Nicky Hilton & wasnt he trying to get w/ Julianne Hough. They are both very pretty, but what kind of convo could you have w/ them?

  3. Shingles says:

    #2, what does Drew Barrymore have to offer? She is the very definition of “dingy” and all that sets her apart is the classic Barrymore profile.

    I’m sure Kevin is rejecting her because she’s desperate. I feel that way even though she is my type ( I was with a Drew clone for four years ). I wouldn’t want to get involved with her exhausting mess. A 33-year old who is all bubbly and giggly and trying to act like a high schooler is just not appealing. If Kevin wants a cheap lay, he can get it from an ACTUAL young floozy, not an aging starlet. And if he wants marriage, I’m sure he’d prefer someone who is ready to grow up. Drew never will and you know it’s true because none of the other Barrymores did either. They were all — and I mean ALL — raging drunks. That is her fate.

    Kevin is on a huge show that’s not going anywhere. He was just nominated for an Emmy for said show. He is also branching out into movies. If you are her friend, birds of a feather flock together so you’re making a better case for Team Connolly.

    He’s mine!
