  • Marth Stewart gushed over Pete Davidson during Tuesday's episode of "The Drew Barrymore Show"
  • The cookbook author revealed she knew Davidson after appearing on "Comedy Central Roast" in 2015
  • Stewart and Davidson were jokingly suspected as the newest Hollywood couple back in August

Martha Stewart seems smitten by Pete Davidson's "cute" charm.

While the 81-year-old acclaimed chef played a game of "Red Flag, Yellow Flag, Green Flag" on Tuesday's episode of "The Drew Barrymore Show" with host Drew Barrymore, 47, she revealed that she would date the "Saturday Night Live" alum because he was "sort of cute."

During the game, Barrymore would describe "hypothetical dates," while Stewart was tasked to raise a green, yellow, or red flag to indicate which qualities she would look for in her ideal man.

When the "50 First Dates" star described the business mogul's first mystery man as a "date that has as many tattoos as Pete Davidson," the cookbook author was quick to wave her green flag before saying, "It's a go, it's good," and the audience cheered in support.

"I knew it. [I] could have bet money in Vegas on that one," the Golden Globe-winning actress quipped. "Okay, your date is Pete Davidson."

"I mean he has dated so many women," Stewart said after waving the green flag for the 28-year-old comedian.

"So what?" Barrymore responded, prompting Stewart to say, "No I'm not saying that's bad. I think that's good, and he's sort of cute."

Stewart also revealed that she knew Davidson because they both appeared in a 2015 episode of "Comedy Central Roast" that featured Justin Bieber and described him as a "little twerp."

"I know him," she shared, which shocked Barrymore. "Oh you didn't know I know him? He was on the [Justin] Bieber roast with me, do you remember? He was this little twerp. He was even twerpier than Bieber."

When the business icon got asked by the actress if the comedian was a good guy because most people have spoken about him in "such a positive way," Stewart responded, "Oh he is a good guy. Very good guy, and he knows how to get in and get out."

In August, social media users jokingly suggested that Stewart might be Davidson's next celebrity girlfriend after a photo made rounds on the internet of the pair holding hands while attending the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner, Daily Mail reported. The "King of Staten Island" star's then-girlfriend Kim Kardashian was also included in the photo.

But the celebrity chef immediately debunked the rumors, telling Daily Mail at the opening of her first-ever restaurant at the Paris in Las Vegas that Davidson was "like the son" she never had.

"He is a charming boy who is finding his way," she gushed, "I've invited him to come on my podcast, and I look forward to hearing what he has to say."

Stewart admitted in her latest interview that she had been single for about 30 years. However, she "had a lot of fun" dating different men after her divorce from Andrew Stewart in 1990.

She dated Intentional Software co-founder Charles Simonyi and actor Anthony Hopkins and allegedly hooked up with veteran investigative journalist Carl Bernstein.
