Actress Drew Barrymore took to Instagram to share a wholesome response to Hugh grant after he called her singing in the 2007 film “Music and Lyrics” ‘horrendous.’
Drew Barrymore and Hugh Grant have some on-screen history that dates back nearly two decades. The Hollywood icons co-starred in the 2007 film “Music and Lyrics,” where they had to do some singing.
On Monday, during a WIRED video interview, the actor revisited his experience filming with Barrymore. When he was asked if he sings in “Music and Lyrics, Grant says he does but he is “auto-tuned beyond belief. “Actually, that’s not true. I’m auto-tuned a bit, but not as much as some.”
As he chuckles, Grant goes on to say that his co-star Barrymore wouldn’t mind him saying that “her singing is just horrendous” in the film.
He went on to joke that he has dogs bark better than how Barrymore sings. Grant does say that once she was autotuned she sounded a lot better than him because she put a lot more heart into it.
