Drew Barrymore has never really hid the fact that she has dabbled in lesbian relationships with various Hollywood women. She even exchanged a passionate kiss with Liv Tyler at the Oscars several years ago, totally raising eyebrows. She has also admitted to dating a lot of women in her younger years before settling in to married life with Will Kopelman. Back in 2009 Drew starred in Whip It with Ellen Page and it began a fabulous relationship for the two.
According to the March 10th print edition of National Enquirer Drew was absolutely head over heels for Ellen and if Ellen had been brave enough to live an openly gay lifestyle back then they could have easily become a Hollywood power couple. Instead she needed to protect her privacy and Drew eventually moved on but the two have remained great friends. It was actually Drew who encouraged Ellen to quit hiding herself from everyone and to just be true to herself once and for all.
Ellen obviously took Drew’s advice and announced to the world this past Valentine’s Day that she is done hiding her true identity. Drew is rumored to be proud of her friend and promised to be there for her no matter how the public reacted to Ellen’s announcement. Obviously the reaction has been very supportive for Ellen, but do you think that this new level of honesty will change the dynamics in her relationship with Drew? Could there be more going on here than just friendship? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
