There are rumors floating around that Drew Barrymore has given up her longtime vegetarian diet for her boyfriend!
Drew, 36, has been dating Will Koppelman for a year, and Star magazine claims the actress has gone back to meat for her boyfriend (whom she sees as “the one”).
Barrymore and Kopelman live together, and though the actress/producer tried to stick to her eating plan, she has found a vegetarian diet too difficult to maintain around her carnivorous man.
A source close to the couple told Star magazine:
“Drew is back on meat. She’s been vegetarian for more than ten years. But Will is a full-on meat-and-potatoes guy. Drew said it was just too hard to do it on her own.”
“Drew and Will have been living together, splitting their time between New York and Los Angeles. Drew loves taking care of Will, which includes making home-cooked meals. She’d grill a steak for Will and then fix herself a bowl of rice and beans but that was a total drag.”
Reportedly, Barrymore feels she’s found the man that will be her husband and wants to do anything to keep him happy.
“Drew is head over heels in love with Will. She’s hoping for a holiday wedding proposal.”
Barrymore has been twice married, for less than 30 days to Welsh bartender/owner Jeremy Thomas in 1994. Comedian Tom Green was her second husband, and the pair separated after less than 4 months in 2001. Their divorce was final in October 2002. Barrymore has also been engaged several times, and had a few long-term relationships that ended. Based on past history, Drew Barrymore may want to rethink giving up her vegetarian diet for a man.
Finding it a drag to prepare two meals isn’t an argument to give up your vegetarian diet. Many couples and families co-exist with vegetarians and omnivores living and eating in the same home. And on a final note, if it’s such a drag to prepare two meals, why not introduce Will Kopelman to vegetarian eating? Why should the vegetarian give up their diet for the omnivore? If the omnivore loves the vegetarian, then giving up meat should be done to make the vegetarian happy.
If the reports are true, giving up your vegetarian diet because it’s inconvenient doesn’t wash for Drew Barrymore. She makes more money in a month than most families make in a year. If she finds making two meals “a drag”, then she can hire a personal chef to come in and cook for herself and her beloved.
She gives up vegetarianism after 10 years!? I can’t imagine what that was like!
