Drew Barrymore has been making the rounds while promoting her latest film, He’s Just Not That Into You. At the L.A. premiere, she graced the red carpet and debuted a well kept secret…her tongue piercing.

It seems Drew has always wanted to have some tongue bling and finally took the plunge last summer. She reports that it didn’t hurt much at first but the pain intensified afterward to the point where she couldn’t eat or drink for two weeks. She proclaimed it a very effective “sick, sadistic and weird diet.”

The actress sat down with Ellen DeGeneres and chatted it up about the experience. Ellen presented her with an assortment of tongue bling – see video below.

The downside of her new piercing is that it seems to be scaring the guys away. She said, “I got it and then I’ve been single ever since. I did it for myself. I always wanted to get one.”

We’ve also got photos and video of Barrymore with Jessica Lange at the Golden Globes. The two, who starred together in Grey Gardens, appear to be inseparable. Is it just us or do they seem like more than just friends? In the second video, Barrymore says, “we fell in love” during the filming of the movie.

Check out photos and video below. See Barrymore on Marie Claire cover with Jennifer Aniston and Ginnifer Goodwin.
