Drew Barrymore Just Reunited with Ex-Boyfriend She Hadn’t Seen in 25 Years on Her Talk Show

Drew Barrymore’s relationship status may still be single with a question mark (since she revealed she’s started dating again), but that doesn’t mean she isn’t down to reunite with one of her ex-boyfriends and reminisce about the good old days.

On a recent episode of The Drew Barrymore Show, the actress and talk show host reunited with an old flame that she hasn’t seen in almost 25 years: actor Corey Feldman. While he was on her show, Feldman reminded her about one of their first dates (Fun Fact: They were “just kids” at the time, according to Feldman) and they both remembered the day like it was yesterday. 

Feldman described the date as “so cute.” He said, “I remember taking you to the movies. It was the movie theater next to [grocery chain] Gelson’s parking lot, so we parked at the Gelson’s, walked across the street, and you put your little hand up for me to hold, and I held your hand as we walked across the street.”

The two didn’t become a couple right away though. Feldman also shared, “We just stayed friends, and then it was years before we actually dated.” Barrymore and Feldman would go on to date as teenagers and even went to the 1989 Academy Awards together. (And might we say, they were looking very snazzy on the red carpet.)

We love hearing about all the good times Drew and Corey had together. (And seeing that they’re still such great friends after all of these years is amazing.)
