Hollywood star Drew Barrymore is blaming her very difficult relationships with men on her late father's absence during her childhood. The star emancipated 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 just born. And she is very convinced his neglect has had a negative effect on her romantic relationships throughout her life. She tells W magazine, "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."
