Drew Barrymore spotted making out with Hugh Grant

Drew Barrymore
Drew Barrymore and Hugh Grant starred in the 2007 romcom Music and Lyrics. I don’t remember hearing rumors of a potential romance between them at the time, although critics praised their on screen chemistry. There may have been more going on between them then we’re aware of, because the two were recently seen making out at a restaurant in New York, if the NY Post is to believed:

DREW Barrymore is loving being single – and available. The “He’s Just Not That Into You” star has been linked with several men recently, but had her eye on her “Music and Lyrics” co-star, Hugh Grant, Monday night. According to spies, Barrymore got very excited when the Brit walked into the Waverly Inn. “She squealed and jumped in his arms,” a spy said. The two then “made out,” but Barrymore showed up to the Beatrice Inn by herself later to hang with Clive Owen. Maybe Hugh’s just not that into her.

Page Six is reporting this, so it’s possible these two shared a lingering hello kiss which turned into a makeout session in the retelling. Grant seems to have reconciled with his longterm girlfriend, Jemima Khan, as he’s been spotted out with her recently and is even said to have booked her favorite restaurant for Valentine’s day as a surprise.

If Hugh and Drew really did make out for a while, it seems they didn’t go farther with it that night as Drew was seen out somewhere else without Hugh later. Clive Owen is happily married with children so the fact that he was hanging out with Drew doesn’t mean much. I would have liked to have heard that Hugh and Drew are an item, though. They’re both single and cute and their names even rhyme. It’s not going to happen though, they’re too different for a relationship to translate off screen.

    Drew & Hugh…lovely! lol

  4. Maritza says:

    You can clearly tell by those 2 photos that he is definitely just not into her.

  5. Kaiser says:

    She’s not his type. I love Drew and everything, but she’s too “real” for him.

  6. Sarah says:

    Gosh, that pairing would be as cute as Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock. But both seem highly unlikely, to me at least. I think they all show high affection for each other but with them knowing that it wouldn’t last for anything serious.

    In Bulllock’s case, she is married anyways since years, but considering how long Keanu und her now, it might have been an option. :)

  7. Tess says:

    they had a sweet on-screen chemistry in that film…it was called “Music and Lyrics” or something like that.

  8. Feebee says:

    Oh silly actors… always greeting each other by putting their tongues down each others throats…. they really must find a another way of saying ‘hi, great to see you again’.

    @ feebee. Hee.

    Wow – two people with pretty much zero prerequisite’s in a partner hooking up! Yippee!
    or
    Just when you think Hugh Grant’s taste in women couldn’t get any lower….
    or
    Just when you think Drew Barrymore’s taste in men could get any lower……

    This one is actually a bit of a surprise, probably because it’s so believeable.

  11. Dirty Martini says:

    I’d totally make out with both of them, separate or together.

    I’m just sayin……..
