Drew Barrymore admits she had 'drunken make-out session' with George Clooney's best pal after her divorce
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: Drew Barrymore has admitted about the time she was "drunk" and "made out" with one of George Clooney's friends in a recent conversation with the Oscar-winner. Clooney is set to appear as a guest in 'The Drew Barrymore Show', on Friday, October 21, and in the preview episode, Barrymore was seen bringing up her interaction with one of Clooney's closest friends.
The 'Never Been Kissed' star acknowledged to have made out with his friend and hairstylist Waldo Sanchez, which came as no surprise to Clooney. The 'Gravity' star said that he entirely understood her need for relaxation given that she had just undergone a divorce. Barrymore, 47, started the conversation by saying, "I feel like good times follow you wherever you go," to which Clooney, 61, replied, "Yes, well that's cause I drink. That's a problem really, it does become a problem."
Barrymore continued, "I got so drunk while we were making Confessions of a Dangerous Mind I made out with Waldo," and Clooney immediately recognized the incident, saying, "I remember." The '50 First Dates' star detailed, "Waldo is George's like best friend, and they work together and then yeah the next day at work I was like, 'Uh cool', cause everyone's just so cool."
Clooney added, "We were in Montreal, we were all stuck up there together and you had just gone through a divorce, remember, and you had just come up there and it was an emotional time for you and so it really felt like incumbent upon us to make sure that you were gonna be okay, and that was fun."
'Confessions of a Dangerous Mind' was released in 2002, the same year that Barrymore and comedian Tom Green got divorced after a year of marriage. Barrymore later wed Will Kopelman in 2012, however the couple eventually divorced in 2016. Since the breakup, she has admitted on her personal blog that she hasn't been in a sexual relationship and doesn't plan to anytime soon.
The 'Ocean's 11' actor also got into the conversation about the drama series that changed his career when Barrymore made a reference to 'ER' and asked, "Did you notice all the TV guides in the hallway? I mean you're like on so many of them." Clooney jokingly replied, "Yes, I was on purpose."
Clooney added, "I guesss it was the friendship I had with all of them or that it continued. I had Anthony Edwards at the house in Italy a couple of three weeks ago... I'm still really close with Julianna (Margulies) Noah (Wyle), they are really good friends. So I feel that it was a job of lifetime and it changed my career."
In agreement with Clooney, Barrymore continued, "That makes people so happy to know becasue it's like we all want to belive that you know, and then when you find out it's true. You're like aw I thought so and it's so fun." Currently, Clooney is promoting his new romantic comedy, 'Ticket to Paradise', which also stars Julia Roberts, Kaitlyn Dever, Maxime Bouttier, Lucas Bravo, Billie Lourd, and many other prominent actors.
The plot of the Oliver Parker-directed film 'Ticket to Paradise' focuses on Clooney and Roberts as a divorced couple who go to Bali to sabotage their daughter's (Kaitlyn Dever) wedding. They wish to prevent their daughter from making the same mistakes they believe they made 25 years ago. This movie is already considered a "great success" by Clooney.
