Drew Barrymore Reveals Who Could Get Her to Start Acting Again.


While her popular talk show has kept her busy, Drew Barrymore teases an acting return if her best friend and fellow actor Adam Sandler was in on it.

In an interview with People about her long career, the former child star shared how trading acting for hosting her weekly talk show The Drew Barrymore Show has allowed her time to grow and raise her family. But she is still keeping the door open for an on-screen reunion with her 50 First Dates and The Wedding Singer co-star. "As soon as you talk about Adam Sandler, I'm like, 'Oh, well maybe. Sure,'" Barrymore said.

Barrymore found fame at 7-years-old after her performance in Steven Spielberg's beloved E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. A member of the Barrymore family of actors, she shortly became a household name for starring in Charlie's Angels (2000), Never Been Kissed (1999), Poison Ivy (1992), Scream (1996) and Ever After (1998). Her role in 2009's Grey Gardens earned her critical acclaim, for which she received a Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild award. Barrymore's more recent work includes the Netflix series Santa Clarita Diet, which was canceled in 2019.

Barrymore previously compared her onscreen chemistry with Sandler as that of an old married couple with mutual respect for each other. "I would sum it up with respect," Barrymore said. "If you respect somebody, you can kind of like make it into love or in lust, or a happy, or a funny, or a sad but for me it all stems from respect. I've always respected him. I love him. He makes us laugh in the world. Aside from what we do together, I was so in love with things that he did, from Saturday Night Live and Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison and, like, everything. I was like, I love this person so much."
