Drew Barrymore Recalls When Keanu Reeves Came to Her 16th Birthday Party
Drew Barrymore launched her new daytime talk show on Monday, Sept. 14 and welcomed Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu as two of her first guests. Barrymore is known for her cheerful disposition and viewers were treated to a reunion with her Charlie’s Angels co-stars and a 50 First Dates skit with Adam Sandler.
But Barrymore put her hosting skills on full display weeks before the official launch of The Drew Barrymore Show, and fans learned a few things about her life including a special moment with Keanu Reeves.
While promoting her show, Barrymore made it clear in interviews that she’s serving up optimism, celebration, and human interest stories. Viewers may have caught a dose of that when she shared a video segment for “Drew’s Movie Nite” with SpongeBob actors Tom Kenny and Bill Fagerbakke.
They spent time discussing The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run, and Keanu Reeves’ name came up. For those who don’t know, he makes a cameo in the film in a golden-haloed tuft of tumbleweed. Barrymore wanted to confirm his appearance in the movie, and that led to her sharing her own story about Reeves.
