Barrymore attracted to dolphins

LONDON: Drew Barrymore thinks she was a dolphin in a past life.

The 'He's Just Not That Into You' actress is obsessed with the placid marine mammals, and has even turned her home into a shrine to them.

According to National Enquirer magazine, she told a friend: "They are just really special creatures and highly evolved. To tell you the truth, I'm convinced I was a dolphin in another life and that's why I'm so attracted to them."

Drew has over 200 statues and figurines of the creatures dotted around her property, including ones carved from crystal and wood.

She also swam with dolphins while holidaying in the Bahamas and Hawaii.

This is not the first animal Drew has shown an interest in.

Earlier this year, it was reported she was being plagued by squirrels after she began feeding a trio of the critters in her backyard.

A source said at the time: "At first three or four squirrels visited Drew when she went outside for a cigarette break - she called them Luke, Fab and Spike after a trio of her ex-boyfriends. But now more than a dozen flock to her each day."
