Drew Barrymore playfully clapped back at Hugh Grant after he dissed her “terrible” singing voice.
The talk show host posted a video dedicated to the British actor, in which she sang “Way Back Into Love,” a duet from their 2007 film, “Music and Lyrics.”
“Oh, Hugh-bert, Hubert, it’s for you,” Barrymore said after singing a few lines.
“#SingForHughGrant JOIN ME,” she captioned the Instagram post on Thursday.
The “Notting Hill” star made headlines on Monday when he called out the actress for her lack of singing ability while filming their romantic comedy.
“Drew Barrymore was in that movie with me, and I don’t think she would mind me saying her singing is just terrible,” he told Wired. “I’ve heard dogs bark better than she sings.”
Later in the interview, Grant, 62, complimented Barrymore, 48, saying that once they “tuned her up,” the “Never Been Kissed” star sounded a lot better than me because she’s got heart and voice and rock ‘n’ roll . .”
The “Love Actually” star’s comments came just hours after he faced backlash over his “rude” behavior towards Ashley Graham on the 2023 Oscars red carpet.

TMZ asked Graham, 35, on Monday if she took “offense” at Grant’s behavior during their interview, to which she said, “You know what, my mom told me to kill people with kindness, so now.”
The model didn’t elaborate, but she did maintain that she had “so much fun” interviewing fellow A-listers on behalf of ABC.
Although Grant has taken quite a beating over his behavior, the women of “The View” also came under fire for not asking him about the viral interview when he appeared on the show Thursday.
“No one with a backbone asked about the Oscars Red Carpet interview,” tweeted one critic.
“So I guess Hugh Grant went on #TheView with the agreement not to touch on what happened with him and Ashley Graham? Because not a word, let alone a sentence!” another speculated.
