Drew Barrymore Had the Best Reaction When ‘Emily in Paris’ Star Lucien Laviscount Flirted with Her

Drew Barrymore could hardly contain her excitement when Emily in Paris star Lucien Laviscount flirted with her during an episode of The Drew Barrymore Show.

The talk show host recently interviewed the Emily in Paris cast to promote the Netflix show’s third season. This included Laviscount (Alfie), Lily Collins (Emily) and Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu (Sylvie).

During the episode, Barrymore jokingly revealed that Darth Vader was her childhood crush. Later on in the interview, Laviscount flirted with the host by referencing her Star Wars obsession. He said, “I’ll be your Darth Vader, by the way. Whenever you need.”

In a rare moment, Barrymore was rendered speechless. She jokingly added, “Wow! We have to go to a quick break.” But it didn’t stop there.

Suddenly, Barrymore turned to Laviscount and asked, “Who’s your childhood fantasy, out of curiosity?” The actor’s response? “I’m living the dream right now.”

Barrymore didn’t know how to react, and her face immediately turned a bright shade of red. “This has never happened to me,” she said.

Right on cue, Leroy-Beaulieu said what we were all thinking: “She’s blushing!”

If Laviscount looks familiar, it’s probably because he’s no stranger to the small screen. In addition to Emily in Paris, he also portrayed Jake Briggs in Grange Hill, Ben Richardson in Coronation Street, Jonah Kirby in Waterloo Road, Billy in Snatched and Alexander Cabot in Katy Keene.
