Drew Barrymore Talks About Flashing David Letterman in 1995

Drew Barrymore Fondly Remembers the Time She Flashed David Letterman in 1995

Drew Barrymore has nothing but fond memories of her infamous appearance on the Late Show With David Letterman in 1995 when she jumped on his desk, performed a sexy dance, and flashed her breasts. After she gave the unsuspecting host a kiss on the cheek, David said, "You know, I can't thank you enough for that." And in honor of David's final episode tonight, Drew revealed to Entertainment Weekly what really went down after her quirky appearance. "From the moment I went on — especially with my little dance number, which was completely spontaneous and not calculated in any way — he let the audience know it was OK," Drew said. "He was so accepting of me and letting everyone know to go on the ride."

Drew has since returned as a guest on David's show many times, and the two have formed a special bond. "From that infamous show, we developed a really fun chemistry. Then I just looked forward to going back. There's an energy to his show. The more you tried to charm him, the less he wanted it. He either liked you or he didn't. When you usually go on a talk show it's very buddy-buddy. But with him you have to work for it. But not too hard, because he won't like that!" See Drew's interview from 1995 below, then check out how the other late-night hosts are honoring David ahead of his retirement.
