Did Hugh Grant Roast Drew Barrymore Publicly?
Drew Barrymore & Hugh Grant have worked together in the 2017 film Music and Lyrics. The film was helmed by director Marc Lawrence and falls under the genre of Romantic/Musical. Even though they worked on only one film together, the two developed a good friendship. Recently, Grant was invited for an interview and he didn’t leave an opportunity to roast his Music & Lyrics co-actor.
The Gentleman actor made fun of Barrymore’s singing capabilities openly. He compared her vocals to dogs by saying “barking dogs have better vocalizations”. But looks like Barrymore didn’t take offense and has taken the criticism sportingly. She did a Way Back to Love performance from their film on her show and gave a befitting answer to Hugh Grant.
