Drew Barrymore And David Letterman Look Back At Her Flashing Him

Twenty-five years ago Drew Barrymore visited David Letterman’s show and it had been on his birthday. The actress decided to dance for him and incidentally got on top of the table. In the flow of her swaying on top of the desk, she lifted her top for a fraction and immediately pushed it down, surprising both the host and the audience present.

“You know, it’s funny… I’m so glad that I had an un-uptight, exhibitionist, hedonistic, free, hippie, wildflower-like era because I am a cloistered nun now.”

The incident had shocked him at that very moment but, he recovered almost instantly. The actress to date does not regret it. However, she did claim that she has changed since then and did not expect her to do that either. Letterman felt helpless the moment she got on the desk, expecting Barrymore to punch him because of all the movies he had watched with delinquent teenagers on a rampage to break the norms.
