Don’t worry fans, the talk show host saw the Instagram post calling her name — and she wants to respond.
Earlier this week, Spears posted an Instagram reflecting the only times she’s felt speechless while meeting other celebrities. “I’ve met thousands of celebrities in the industry…but I have to say the 2 people who literally left me speechless were and @drewbarrymore,” Spears wrote. “They are by far the 2 most beautiful people I have ever seen in my life!!! This is shocking!!!”
In a preview for an upcoming episode of Barrymore explains that while everyone on her team saw the post and happily freaked out, the Flower Films founder prefers to take her time responding.
“Everyone at the show, because I was here filming, came running up to me and was like you saw? And I just said I’ll see him when I’m upstairs,” she explained. “I want to be, like, thoughtful. I want to read every word she says. I really want to respond thoughtfully, I really want to choose my words the right way.
Barrymore goes on to say that she is really looking forward to .
“I just think it’s such a smart, clever way to tell his story,” said the 50 first dates the actress shared. “She will control this narrative and she will tell us in her own words and it’s just an awesome way for us to be invited into her world…It’s such a moment for me, I have so many feelings towards her, so much depth… So how do you encapsulate that in a message?”
Barrymore has gone public with her support for Spears as the pop star fights to end her 13-year conservatorship. In August 2021, the former child star called out Spears talking about “the key to her freedom.”
“It’s about her and her life,” she said with entertainment tonight. “Everyone deserves the freedom to make mistakes or succeed in life and all that. That’s life.”
