Was it nearly a match made in celebrity heaven?
In a new interview, Christian Bale
reveals that he once briefly dated Drew Barrymore
, according to the New York Daily News
And it was allegedly Barrymore who put an end to their teenage courtship.
"We went to see some bloody awful horror film, and that was the end of it," Bale, 38, tells GQ Australia
. "She never called again."
It's a safe bet to assume neither one is pining for the other now, though. Bale has been married to his wife, Sandra "Sibi" Blazic, since 2000, and the couple have a 7-year-old daughter.
And Barrymore, 37, is expecting her first child
with fiancé Will Kopelman
