Drew Barrymore Responds to Hugh Grant’s Music & Lyrics Complaint About Her
Drew Barrymore has responded to Hugh Grant’s brutal complaint about her.
The actor co-starred with Grant in the rom-com music & lyrics as a songwriter alongside a shabby pop star to create a chart-topping teenage pop star (Haley Bennett).
Earlier this week, Grant was asked about the film during a segment of an interview in which he answered “the internet’s most searched questions.” One of them was: “Is Hugh Grant actually singing along? music & lyrics?”
He said Wired: “Yes I do, but I’m incredibly autotuned. Actually that’s not true – I’m a bit autotuned but not as much as some.”
Grant then said of his co-star, “Drew Barrymore was in this film with me and I don’t think she would mind if I say her singing is just awful. I’ve heard that dogs bark better than they sing.”
The actor acknowledged that Barrymore improved “after they tuned her” and that “she sounded a lot better than me because she has heart and voice and rock ‘n’ roll.”
Barrymore playfully responded to Grant’s comments on Instagram by sharing a video of her singing the film’s song “Way Back Into Love,” which was written by the late Fountains of Wayne singer Adam Schlesinger.
“Oh, Hugh-bert, Hubert, this is for you,” she said in a new Instagram video after performing a few lines from the song. She then captioned the post, “#SingForHughGrant JOIN ME.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Grant highlighted a subtle “in joke” seen in the final shot of the 1999 film notting hillwhich he described as “disgusting”.
On Sunday (March 12), Grant was accused of “obnoxious” behavior after a “disastrous” red carpet interview with model Ashley Graham at the Oscars.
his new movie Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieveshits theaters on March 31st.
