Drew Barrymore prefers letters over e-mails

London: Hollywood star Drew Barrymore is not a fan of sending emails, and prefers people to take the time to write her a letter.

The `Music and Lyrics` star, who refuses to confirm speculation she has again rekindled her romance with on/off boyfriend Justin Long, thinks it is more meaningful to pen a note, instead of sending an email or other electronic communication, Contactmusic.

"I still write letters, I don`t want to communicate in a relationship via text and email. I love a letter. You are thoughtful when you write it and someone can read it and hold onto it and go back to it," Barrymore said.

"For me there`s something very dangerous to have everything so instantaneous," she added.

The 35-year-old star also admitted she likes to listen to cassette tapes, using a typewriter and shooting movies on film rather than digitally, and that she pines for a time in the past when people were more formal.

"There`s a part of me that misses the grace and formalities of the past, like when gentlemen wore hats and opened doors.

"On the other hand, I love that now we`re not trying to pretend so much that everything is prim and proper. I`d like to find a balance," she added.
