Barrymore Befriended Grant After Prostitute Incident

DREW BARRYMORE and HUGH GRANT's friendship stretches back further than their recent movie collaboration - the actress wrote to Grant after he was caught with prostitute DIVINE BROWN in 1995. Barrymore and Oscar-winning director FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA were the only Hollywood stars to reach out to Grant in the aftermath of the incident, which threatened to derail his acting career. The actress says, "I'm so not a Hollywood Bob, but I thought he was so charming with the gracious, humorous way he handled the whole thing, having been through some public scrutiny myself. "He wrote me back and me and my room mate kept the letter on our fridge for years. "He said only two people had written to him. The other was Francis Ford Coppola. Random."
