Drew Barrymore recalls the hilarious moment a bouncer stopped Courtney Love going backstage

No one’s stopping Courtney Love from going backstage!

Her old pal, Drew Barrymore, was asked to tell a crazy story about the Hole singer during her Wednesday appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. Barrymore happily obliged, telling a hilarious tale.

“Courtney and I were at the backstage of a Seattle club. We’d just come from seeing Green Day,” she recalled. “We were going to see Beck play at coffee house and the bouncer said, ‘I’m sorry, you can’t come in, you don’t have a backstage pass.’”

Naturally, Love didn’t take too kindly to being kept from going backstage.

“Courtney looked at him and goes, ‘My face is a backstage pass.’ And then swept him aside and just walked in and I was still left there standing,” Barrymore said.

The Santa Clarita Diet actress also opened up about her time working with Carrie Fisher, who worked on the script of Barrymore’s 1998 classic The Wedding Singer.

“I loved going to her house,” she said of the late actress. “It was like a hacienda type of like beautiful home off of Coldwater Canyon, very Los Angeles. She just had a very open home. I’d been there for parties, her office in the daytime. It was classic, Spanish, California – sunshine, orange groves and creativity.”

She also noted that she went to Fisher and Penny Marshall’s joint birthday parties.

“I’m proud to say I came and went because I feel like a lot of people stayed. I remember Garry Shandling being weird in the driveway. And I was like, ‘I’m so glad I’m going home! I’m so glad I’m surviving these kind of nights,’” she said of the wild parties.
