Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore have revealed that they once made out while both were really drunk.

While most people hope to never see the person they drunkenly snog on a night out ever again, mainly out of embarrassment, Grant and Barrymore later went on to make a movie together.


It was early days into the two actors’ friendship when they bumped into one another at a restaurant in New York – and later ended up kissing.

Recalling the ‘bizarre’ moment on The Drew Barrymore Show, Barrymore admitted it was her who instigated the kiss and ‘grabbed [Hugh] by the collar’.

The Blended actor said:


I don’t think we’ve ever talked about this but this was at the Waverly Inn and, this was years ago, and I’d had a few drinks, and I walked in and I ran into you and, instead of saying hello, I grabbed you by the collar and I fully started kissing you.

Chuckling in response, Grant went on to say he remembered the incident and dubbed it ‘really bizarre,’ while admitting he was also very drunk at the time.

He added, ‘I was with some very nice, not drunk studio executives from LA and they were very surprised. Someone said, ‘Oh there’s Drew Barrymore’, I get up to say hi and then we make out for ten minutes. Then I sit down again and we began talking about the script’.


The pair then joke that they’ve grown up since their drunken snog several years ago.
