Drew Barrymore has confessed she always wanted to try internet dating.

The 39-year-old actress had a string of failed relationships including two broken marriages before finding love with art consultant Will Kopelman in 2011. They are now married with two young daughters, but Drew has admitted she always wanted to go on a blind date like her character in new rom com Blended.

She said: "I never got to have a blind date, which still really irritates me. I would have really liked that.

"I did consider internet dating, because I thought at least that part until I showed up would be anonymous, but I never got to do that either. And now I'm married, so hopefully that will never happen."

Blended reunites Drew with Adam Sandler, who she starred with in hit films The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates. In their latest collaboration, they play single parents Jim and Lauren, who never want to see each other again after a disastrous blind date.

Adam revealed his first date with wife Jackie did not go so well.

"I was on the Atkins diet at the time," he recalled. "All I got to eat was this steak, and then I looked over at her and I ate half her chicken. She still talks about that."

:: Blended is in cinemas now.
