Drew Barrymore has received a music response after former co-star Hugh Grant said her singing voice was “horrible.”

The two stars previously shared the screen in the romantic comedy Music And Lyrics, in which Drew portrayed an aspiring songwriter and Hugh played a washed-up 1980s pop singer.

Over the course of the movie, Drew and Hugh sing a few times, which the Bridget Jones’s Diary actor recently spoke about during an interview with Wired.

When asked if it was his singing voice that we heard in the 2007 film, Hugh explained: “Yeah…but I’m incredibly auto-adjusted. Actually, it’s not true, I got a little bit automatic, but not as much as some.”

He added, “Drew Barrymore was with me in that movie and I don’t think she would mind if I said her singing was awful.” “I’ve heard dogs bark better than they sing.”

In response to Hugh’s comments, Drew shared a video of herself singing the song’s final number, A Way Back Into Love, which the couple performs as a duet on the film’s soundtrack, into her hairbrush.

oh huh? Hubert? This is for you,” she joked at the end of the clip.

In Hugh’s defence, he later went on to praise Drew’s performance technique, noting: “Once tuned in, she sounded better on me, because she’s got heart, voice, and rock ‘n’ roll. While I sounded like Julie Andrews, and was meant to be rock and roll.”

Music And Lyrics featured original songs performed by Adam Schlesinger, Fountains of Wayne, who died in 2020 due to complications from COVID.

Hugh is back in the headlines this week after appearing at the Academy Awards.

Not only did he raise eyebrows when he stopped by to interview Ashley Graham on the red carpet, he also caused a stir during the ceremony with a typical self-deprecating joke.
