Drew Barrymore is dating art consultant Will Kopelman, it has been reported.

The US actress, who has been involved in an on/off relationship with her ‘Going the Distance’ co-star Justin Long for over three years, has reportedly been seeing the 33-year-old for a few weeks.

After the pair were spotted in Los Angeles on Monday ahead of the actress’ 36th birthday yesterday, a source told website Just Jared: "It's a very new relationship. They're taking things slowly. They've been getting to know each other a lot better these last few weeks."

However, the insider added that Kopelman – the son of former Chanel CEO Arie Kopelman – is "a socialite type and a playboy" and may not be looking for a serious commitment as he was spotted with another woman earlier this month.

Barrymore – who has been married twice to Welsh bartender Jeremy Thomas and comedian Tom Green – recently admitted she used to crave being in "crazy love", but has become attracted to relaxed partners as and romances as she has grown older.

She said: "When you're young you just want to be in love. I call it crazy love, because you just want to have fun and you're not thinking about the future or kids. You just want to have a good time with that person.

"Then, as you get older, even children aside, you just think: 'God, I actually like when it's easy, and I want these attributes from this person. I need these kinds of systems in place to feel calm'."
