Barrymore also reveals what epic (bad) movie role she turned down and dishes on a future project with Adam Sandler.

Drew Barrymore used to party with Courtney Love, and she's got one helluva story to prove it.

The "Santa Clarita Diet" star stopped by "Watch What Happens Live" Wednesday night when a caller asked about her craziest memory of partying with Kurt Cobain's widow back in the '90s.

"Courtney and I were at the backstage of a Seattle club," she began. "We had just come from seeing Green Day. We were going in to see like a back play at a coffee house, and the bounder said, 'I'm sorry, you can't come in. You don't have a backstage pass.' And Courtney looked at him and goes, 'My face is a backstage pass.' And then swept him aside and just walked in and I was still left there standing. I mean, kinda awesome."

Sitting beside Drew in the Bravo Clubhouse was Netflix comrade Timothy Olyphant. And when a caller asked Timothy if he regretted turning down Vin Diesel's role in "The Fast and the Furious," the actor surprisingly said, "No."

"It's not my thing," he said after a brief pause. "With me, I just thought, well this will just be stupid. And I thought, 'No one's gonna wanna see this movie eight or nine different times. I mean, by the third or forth sequel, people are gonna definitely get bored of it.'"

Then a caller asked Drew if the reports claiming she turned down the lead in the 1995 erotic drama, "Showgirls," were true.

"I think it was a mutual agreement between me and Paul Verhoeven, the director," she replied.

Timothy then joked, "So you famously turned down something that ended up being a laughing stock, and I famously turned down something that became a worldwide cash cow."

Drew was then asked if she and her "50 First Dates" co-star, Adam Sandler, would ever reunite on screen.

"Adam and I text all the time about our next thing, and we're like, 'We're so fat, we're so old, what the f-ck,'" she said. "Literally, the last thing I suggested to him was, like, 'On Golden Pond.' I just watched it on a Korean flight home."

Timothy and "WWHL" host Andy Cohen burst into excitement, saying they'd watch that movie "in a heartbeat!"

A final caller then asked Drew if she had kept in touch with David Letterman after she flashed him on his show back in 1995.

"No," she replied. "He's a grouch. He was always a grouch. I happened to win him over in that moment, and he was always nice to me afterward. But he didn't expect it, and I didn't expect it."

Drew went on to call the incident "spur-of-the-moment, weird hedonistic freedom" and that she would have lost respect for herself if it had been planned.

Fast-forward to 4:40 in the video below to relive the epic moment.
