- Martha Stewart weighed in on a potential romance with Pete Davidson, calling him “sort of cute.”
- Drew Barrymore asked Stewart what she thought about people’s desire to see her date Davidson.
- Stewart said Davidson has dated “so many women,” but she still considers him a “good guy.”
Martha Stewart weighed in on a potential romance between her and Pete Davidson during a recent appearance on “The Drew Barrymore Show.”
Barrymore mentioned the online chatter earlier this year that encouraged a relationship between Stewart, 81, and the former “Saturday Night Live” star, 28, who most recently dated Kim Kardashian before their August split.
“There’s a thing on the internet where everybody wants you to go on a date with Pete Davidson,” Barrymore told Stewart.
“I mean, he’s dated so many women,” the cookbook author responded, before clarifying that she was “not saying that’s bad.”
“I think that’s good and he’s sort of cute,” Stewart continued. She then reminisced about the time she and Davidson appeared on a 2015 Comedy Central roast of Justin Bieber, when she called Davidson a “little twerp” who was “even twerpier than Bieber.”
“But everybody speaks about Pete Davidson in such a positive way. He has to be a good guy,” Barrymore said.
“Oh, he is a good guy,” Stewart replied. “Very good guy and he knows how to get in and get out.”
In August, memes began circulating that jokingly inferred Stewart could be Davidson’s next high-profile girlfriend after his breakup with Kardashian.
Stewart, when asked about it by the Daily Mail at the time, called Davidson “the son I never had” and “a charming boy.”
The comedian had a slew of high-profile romances before his relationship with Kardashian. Davidson famously had a brief engagement to singer Ariana Grande, and relationships with actresses Phoebe Dynevor, Margaret Qualley, Cazzie David, and model Kaia Gerber.
