Drew Barrymore proves to Hugh Grant what her voice can do after he jokingly called her singing “terrible”.
During a THE CABLE video interview aired Monday in which he answers “the web’s most searched question,” the Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves the actor was asked: “Does Hugh Grant actually sing along Music and lyrics?” He replied that he does, but he’s “auto-tuned beyond belief. That’s actually not true. I’m auto-tuned a little, but not as much as some.”
Laughing, the actor went on to say that Barrymore, who starred opposite him in the 2007 rom-com, wouldn’t mind him saying “her singing is just terrible” in the film.
The Marc Lawrence-directed film follows former music superstar Alex Fletcher (Grant), who gets an opportunity for a career comeback when he is asked to write a song for teenage sensation Cora Corman (Haley Bennett). The only problem is that he can’t compose lyrics, so he teams up with Sophie Fisher (Barrymore), a younger woman who has a way with words, to help write a song.
Grant, who recently went viral after an awkward red carpet Oscars interview with Ashley Graham, didn’t stop there. “I’ve heard dogs bark better than she sings,” he added jokingly. “But … once they tuned her up, she sounded a lot better than me because she’s got heart and voice and rock ‘n’ roll. Whereas I sounded like Julie Andrews and I wanted to be kind of rock ‘n’ roll too .”
After THE CABLE interview, the Charlie’s Angels The actress was all smiles as she took to Instagram on Thursday to share a clip of her song “Way Back Into Love,” from Music and lyrics, with the caption “#SingForHughGrant JOIN ME.” After showing off her vocals, she turns to Grant and says, “Oh Hugh, Bert, Hubert, this is for you.”
