Drew Barrymore is unfazed by Hugh Grant’s assault on insulting all of Hollywood.
After making quite a bit of headlines for comments he made at the 2023 Oscars, Grant mocked former co-star Barrymore’s vocals during a Wired interview alongside his “Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves” castmates, Chris Pine and Michelle Rodriguez.
During the interview, Grant, 62, answered “the web’s most searched questions” and was asked if he actually sang in the 2007 rom-com “Music and Lyrics.”
The British actor admitted that he does sing, but he’s “auto-tuned incredibly. Actually, that’s not true. I’m a little auto-tuned, but not as much as some.
He then threw Barrymore, 48, who starred opposite him in the film, under the bus and called her singing skills “appalling.”
“Drew Barrymore starred with me in that movie and I don’t think she would mind if I say her singing is just awful. I’ve heard dogs bark better than they sing,’ Grant confessed.
He added, “But… once they tuned her she sounded way better than me because she’s got heart and voice and rock and roll. While I sounded like Julie Andrews and I also wanted to be a kind of rock and roll.”
Barrymore responded to Grant’s comments in the most wholesome way: She shared a video of her singing “Way Back Into Love” from “Music and Lyrics.”
She posted the video to Instagram with the caption, “#SingForHughGrant JOIN ME.”
After she finished singing into a hairbrush, she addressed Grant directly and said, “Oh Hugh, Bert, Hubert, that’s for you.”
Meanwhile, Grant went viral after the Oscars after a “rude” encounter with 35-year-old ABC Oscars red carpet host Ashley Graham.
The “Notting Hill” actor rolled his eyes at the end of the awkward interview, which led to it viewers to describe the star as “a total hole.”
He also made headlines after a crude joke was cracked onstage during the presentation of the 95th Academy Awards alongside his ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’ co-star Andie MacDowell, where he described himself as “actually a scrotum.”
On “The View” Thursday morning, Grant told co-host Whoopi Goldberg, 67, that he wrote the joke and was “extremely nervous” about it.
“I think I got away with it,” he said of the self-deprecation.
