London, March 10 (IANS) Hollywood actress Drew Barrymore has blamed her difficult relationships with men on her late father’s absence during her childhood.
The “Charlie’s Angels” star separated herself from her mother Jaid at the age of 17, but she hardly knew her father, actor John Barrymore, an alcoholic who abandoned the family before she was born, reported contactmusic.com

Drew Barrymore, 34, is convinced his neglect has had a negative effect on her romantic relationships.

“He was so feeble, I could actually nail him down. He was such a flighty bird, unattainable and off doing his own thing. I’m sure it’s affected my relationships with men. I’m sure I’m sadder about it than I admit, but I accept that a lot easier than my mother’s and my relationship, which is more tumultuous,” said Barrymore.

Barrymore reconciled with her dad before he died of bone marrow cancer in 2004 at the age of 72.
