Drew Barrymore was left blushing during an extremely flirty exchange with Emily In Paris star Lucien Laviscount on her talk show on Friday.
The actress, 47, who recently revealed she was back on the dating scene after her 2016 divorce, was interviewing the British hunk, 30, who plays Alfie, and had asked him how he got his start in showbusiness.
Taking her off-guard, Lucien said: ‘I’ll be your Darth Vader, by the way, whenever you need’ as Drew joked: ‘Wow! We have to go to a quick break.

Drew then asked: ‘Who’s your childhood fantasy, out of curiosity? with Lucien cheekily retorting: ‘I’m living the dream right now.’
Lead star Lily Collins, 33, quipped: ‘Should we go?’ with a flustered Drew saying: ‘This has never happened to me.’

As Lucien revealed he was asked to model for British retail giant Marks and Spencer, Drew said: ‘Oh, I know Marks and Spencer. I’m actually wearing their underwear right now. I am not kidding.’
Lucien retorted; ‘Can we really cut to that commercial break?’
This comes after Drew revealed that she is dating again, six years after finalizing the end of her marriage to Will Kopelman.
The Never Been Kissed star giddily opened up about her love life during a chat with While Goldberg.
‘The last time you were here, we both were single. You weren’t dating. Are you dating now?’ the actress asked, before gushing ‘I am.’
Hot under the collar: Drew then asked: ‘Who¿s your childhood fantasy, out of curiosity? with Lucien cheekily retorting: ‘I¿m living the dream right now’
She continued: ‘Because it had been so many years, I started to get a little worried, like I’m too good at being alone.’
Goldberg, who said she wasn’t interested in a serious relationship at the moment, advised Barrymore to start off with a casual relationship as she eases her way back into the dating scene.
‘Maybe a hit-and-run is a better way to go, for now, until you say to yourself, ‘Now I really want someone to just be part of this,’ the comedian advised. ‘Right now, that may not be what you’re looking for, which is probably why you’re doing fine.’
The performer’s update comes less than two months after she admitted on her show that she had not been in an ‘intimate relationship’ since 2016.
‘At nearly 48 I have very different feelings about intimacy than I did growing up. I did not have role model parents and I engaged with people in grown up ways since a tender age!’ the Golden Globe winner explained (seen with ex-husband Will Kopelman in 2015)
‘At nearly 48 I have very different feelings about intimacy than I did growing up. I did not have role model parents and I engaged with people in grown up ways since a tender age!’ the Golden Globe winner explained.
In the past, she said she ‘was looking for companionship, validation. excitement, pleasure, hedonism, fun and adventure’ through intercourse.
Since she doesn’t have a ‘time machine’ or way to ‘change’ her history, the mom-of-two said she chooses to ‘look at it through a positive lens.’
‘After two kids and a separation from their father that has made me cautious, I have had the pleasure of shifting my focus when it comes to love for myself and my two daughters,’ Barrymore continued. ‘I know that does not include a man nor has it for a while.’
She then credited her therapist for telling her: ‘Sex is not love! It is the expression of love.’
‘I have searched my whole life to have words like that to help me understand the difference and now, thanks to him, I do,’ the star noted. ‘And since entering life as a single mom, I have not been able to have an intimate relationship.’
While she says she might ‘get into a relationship’ in the near future, she insisted it ‘simply hasn’t been’ her priority.
‘I’m not a person who needs sex and has to go out there and engage with people on that level,’ Barrymore stated. ‘I am someone who is deeply committed to fostering how young girls, my daughters, and myself as a woman, are supposed to function in this world!’
Additionally, she confessed that a ‘relationship with a man has not been top of mind for me for a very long time.’
‘Some people can get out of a marriage or relationship and in the near future find themselves in another relationship. There is nothing wrong with that! Not one bit. I do not judge! I celebrate their journey!’ she said.
For her, however, she said she ‘needed to stay very celibate’ as she mourned ‘the loss of a nuclear family’ that she ‘swore’ that she would have for her daughters.
