Well, Amber is bisexual.

Drew Barrymore’s life is like an open book — she doesn’t hide anything. She admitted that she had used drugs (mostly cocaine); she talked about her alcoholism; and she shared her story about going to rehab, twice. Her openness shouldn’t be too surprising though, considering that she technically grew up under the spotlights (she started acting when she was 15). When she was asked about her sexuality, Barrymore said:
“Do I like women sexually? Yeah, I do. Totally. I have always considered myself bisexual. A woman and a woman together are beautiful, just as a man and a woman together are beautiful.

Difference between Bisexuality and Pansexuality
The definition of bisexual as: “sexually attracted to both men and women”. Meanwhile, the definition of pansexual is: “not limited or inhibited in sexual choice with regard to gender or activity.”
While it can be easy to say that both definitions mean the same, exact thing, the key difference between bisexuality and pansexuality rests on the focus on gender identity.
Bisexuality implies that there are only two genders, that being male and female.
Pansexuality, on the other hand, implies that there are more than two genders. Pansexuals have no problem dating or sleeping with a transgender person.
