Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu's TV reunion is everything


The day has finally arrived as Drew Barrymore reunited with her Charlie’s Angels co-stars Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu.

Yep, Monday saw our favourite trio come together for the premiere of The Drew Barrymore Show and our hearts are so full.

Thanks to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the gang had to follow social distancing protocols for their first TV appearance together in years.

In fact, Drew and Lucy were filming together in the show’s New York studio, while Cameron was beamed onto the stage from a Los Angeles studio.

But Drew still couldn’t hide her excitement when she introduced her pals: ‘We are friends, we are fellow angels… please welcome my partners in crime and life.’

The ladies reminisced on their iconic films – Charlie’s Angels and the sequel Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle – and revealed how their friendship had evolved over the past 20 years.

Drew explained: ‘The thing I love about our friendship is that we have been there in all the big and important moments.

‘We’ve also been there in the small moments and the casual moments, and the reason we are such good friends is because it’s real and we go through real stuff with each other. It’s not a Hollywood fairytale.’

The trio have been able to bond even further about the joys of parenthood after Cameron and her husband Benji Madden welcomed their first child Raddix in December.

The new mom explained: ‘I think there’s something in our DNA that gets triggered — just clicks on — when you become a parent. You have to make sure that they survive. They go on.’

Drew has two daughters Frankie, six, and Olive, eight, while Liu has a five-year-old son named Rockwell Lloyd.

The ladies also explained how having children and the events of 2020 have made them reflect on mortality and life.

Lucy admitted: ‘In my 20s, I felt very bulletproof. I didn’t really care if I lived or died. I lost my father a few years ago, and I didn’t really recognize the levels that we have in our lives.

‘He was a place in my life that was always sort of a roof, and then suddenly the roof has been torn off. Then you sort of recognize, “Oh, I am now the roof”.’

She continued: ‘I happen to have a child, so now I am the roof to that child and I have to shelter him. I have a responsibility. It’s a very powerful thing, but it’s also terrifying.’

The Drew Barrymore Show continues weekdays (check local listings).
