Drew Barrymore revealed on her talk show on yesterday (January 27) that her ex- Luke Wilson dated other people while they were together. The 50 First Dates actress, 46, shared with her guest Kate Hudson that she and Luke had a “young and wild” lifestyle in the early 2000s, and got into an “open relationship” together. While trying to recall the first night they ever met, friends Drew and Kate, 42, remembered that it was at a bar/restaurant in Santa Monica, California with Luke. At the time, Kate was filming a rom-com with Luke, while Drew was dating him.
“You [and Luke] were doing Alex & Emma together, I think,” Drew said, referencing the 2003 film. Then, she began shaking her hands, as if unsure. “And I was…dating him? But! I think he was also…”
Kate and Drew both finished the sentence, saying, “Dating other people.”
However, Drew defended Luke by sharing that the couple had “an open relationship” at the time, adding, “We were young.”
“I’ve been there with a Wilson too,” Kate joked, referencing her own on and off relationship with Luke’s older brother Owen Wilson, 53, which began after they met on the set of the 2006 film You, Me and Dupree.
Kate’s admission caused Drew to laugh so hard that she threw herself back in her chair. “It’s so funny because when you’re young, you’re like, ‘It’s low stakes!'” Drew explained about their dating histories. “We’re just young, we’re having fun, we’re all playing, acting, hanging out, you know, you’re not taking it all so seriously and it was fun. And we had the best time!”
“We did, we had the best time,” Kate agreed.
