Even an accomplished actress like Drew Barrymore has some box office blunders she’d rather forget.
During Monday night’s round of “Plead the Fifth” on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live, the Golden Globe winner told the late-night show host which movie in her filmography she wasn’t too keen about.
“Tell me one film you’ve done that you can now say at this late date that you were just not that into,” Cohen asked while giving a subtle nod to the 40-year-old mother’s 2009 film.
With slight hesitation, Barrymore offered a diplomatic answer. “Well, I wish that film Bad Girls was more bad. I was like, ‘Lets be like dudes, but like women, but like dudes,” she said of the poorly-received 1994 film she starred in with Andie MacDowell and Dermot Mulroney.
A good sport, Barrymore continued to answer Cohen’s juicy questions without objection.
“Christian Bale said in an interview that the two of you went on a date as teens and you never called him back. He never heard from you again,” Cohen posed to Barrymore. “Why did you never call him back?”
“I don’t know! He was so nice,” she replied. “I wasn’t like super boy crazy. I had a lot of fish to fry, like I had big problems in my like world for many years like in good ways—things you gotta overcome…boys is like very secondary.”
As for another Hollywood star that became her right-hand man for just one year of her life, her ex-husband Tom Green, she explained to Cohen her outlook on their short-lived relationship from 2001.
“Tom Green I think is a very unique human being we all know that as he dangles mice in his mouth,” she said of the eccentric comedian who hosted several late-night talk shows on MTV in the early 2000s.
“I think that he did something before anyone else did. I think that he was a real pioneer. There was no social media. There was no reality TV and I have to say I gave him a loit of credit as a creative person onlooking that he was a first and I do appreciate that about him,” she said.
A round of applause to the makeup mogul for making it through the entire round without ever pleading the fifth. We appreciate your honesty, Drew.
