"Well, I get abstaining from sex, I did that my entire twenties. I was like what's wrong with me that six months doesn't seem like a very long time. I was like, 'Yeah so?' " the host quipped when speaking on 'The Drew Barrymore Show' this week, reports aceshowbiz.com.

Her co-star Ross Matthews joked, "I mean, we buried the lea there. That's the headline, 'Drew can go six months, no big deal.' "

She replied, "Oh, years."

Drew has also used method acting in the past, particularly when she was playing Edie Beale in 'Gray Gardens', which earned her a Golden Globe award.

She explained, "There are lots of actors who have, Christian Bale, Jared Leto, Matthew McConaughey, you do want to transform and fully commit, so I understand that."

"I definitely on certain projects, like when I was doing 'Gray Gardens' this film I did where I played this beloved real-life woman Edie BealeaI was so nervous I didn't really chit chat with everybody on set, I just really stayed in character, or her."

Last month, Andrew opened up about the way he approached playing a 17th-century priest in "Silence" and described it as an "incredibly spiritual experience."

He said, "I did a bunch of spiritual practices every day. I created new rituals for myself. I was celibate for six months, and fasting a lot, because me and Adam (Driver) had to lose a bunch of weight anyway."

"There were all the spiritual practices we got to do while we were praying, meditating, having all the intentions we had as those characters. It was very cool, man. I had some pretty wild, trippy experiences from starving myself of sex and food for that period of time."
