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