Drew Barrymore escorted off stage after alleged “stalker” crashes event
During a live interview, an alleged “stalker” rushed the stage towards Drew Barrymore, prompting the daytime host to flee to safety.
Drew Barrymore is a well-known actress who has been a part of iconic films such as E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Scream, and the Charlie’s Angels franchise.
However, Barrymore has pivoted away from acting roles to becoming a talk show host as she launched her show — The Drew Barrymore Show — back in 2020.
Barrymore is now known for being a great interviewer as she has chatted with various celebrities, which is what she was attempting to do just recently when her conversation was interrupted by a complete stranger.
Drew Barrymore fled after stranger rushed the stage
Barrymore recently sat down with Reneé Rapp at the 92nd Street Y to discuss Rapp’s new debut LP Snow Angel.
During the pair’s conversation, a man in the audience called out Barrymore’s name, to which she responded kindly to by greeting him.
However, things then took a turn when the man ran towards the stage, saying: “You know who I am. I need to see you at some point while you’re in New York.”
The entire interaction was captured by members of the audience who then posted it to social media.
Though security worked swiftly to escort the man away from the event, Rapp took it upon herself to quickly direct Barrymore backstage for her safety.
The women then returned to the stage after the man was taken away, with Insider reporting that Barrymore seemed to joke about the event, saying to Rapp: “Well, I have a new definition of your sexiness, it’s that level of protectiveness. That went full Bodyguard. You are my Kevin Costner.”
Rapp also praised Barrymore’s ability to stay calm backstage, saying that Barrymore said: “Oh no, I’ve got it, I’m good,” when asked if she needed anything after the incident.
