The now 46-year-old actress has been a part of showbiz since she was a child and has been known to share some of her wilder memories on her talk show when she reminisces with other stars she’s known for decades.
“When we first met, we were young and wild,” Barrymore said as she and Hudson, 42, pieced together that they first met at a restaurant called Chez Jay in Santa Monica, California. Their fellow actor Luke Wilson was also present, both actresses recalled.
“You were doing ‘Alex & Emma’ together, I think,” Barry said of the 2003 romcom starring Hudson and Wilson, who is now 50. “And I was dating him, but I think he was also dating other people.”
Barrymore explained that theirs “was an open relationship.”
“We were young,” she added.
Barrymore isn’t the only one to have had such an experience, as Hudson added: “I’ve been there with a Wilson, too.”
According to Page Six, Barrymore and Wilson dated beginning in the late 1990s, while Hudson dated the actor’s brother Owen Wilson after they met in 2006 while filming “You, Me and Dupree.” Reps for Luke did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.
