Drew Barrymore, 48, just proved that even actors can get quite emotional watching their own movies.

Last week on Instagram, the daytime talk show host posted a video of herself breaking down in tears while watching her movie, The Wedding Singer. While sitting on her living room couch in a cozy yellow cardigan, Barrymore starts to cry right in the middle of watching the 1998 rom-com, where she stars opposite Adam Sandler.  

“We made such a good movie. I love you so much. Happy New Year,” the actress says to Sandler. She continues, “It started this morning and I was on my way to yoga class, and I am taking the next, later one so I can watch it,” and turns the camera to show the movie playing on her TV screen.

In the caption, Barrymore wrote, “I love you so much @adamsandler. The Wedding Singer came on my TV as I was getting ready to leave the house and I had to take in this moment and watch it.”

And if that didn’t put you in your feels, Sandler came across the video and wrote in the comments section, “Love u always Drew. Happy New Year.”

The Wedding Singer follows a singer named Robbie (Sandler), who is heartbroken after his fiancé leaves him at the altar. While forced to perform romantic songs for a wedding, he meets a young woman named Julia (Barrymore), who enlists his help to plan her wedding. But he falls in love with her and tries to stop her wedding before it’s too late. 

Guess this is our sign to watch The Wedding Singer tonight.
