In one of her first public appearances since announcing her split from husband Will Kopelman earlier this month (Apr16), the Never Been Kissed star took the podium at the Pierre Hotel for a luncheon benefiting the New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children - the world’s first child protective agency.

And as the mother-of-two began her speech, Drew warned the crowd that she may shed some tears as she recalled a special trip to Africa to help less fortunate kids.

"As you women know, laughter and crying are twins - and you men are still struggling with that," Drew said. "If I break down during this story, you will understand that I'll just turn it into laughter, and you men will think we're crazy.
