Drew Barrymore, 48, Experienced her First ‘Hot Flash’ on TV and Fans Applauded her for ‘Keeping it REAL’

Drew Barrymore had her first hot flash on air while interviewing Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler on The Drew Barrymore Show.

The 48-year-old Charlie’s Angels star was in conversation with the Murder Mystery stars when all of a sudden, she started feeling a little flushed.

“I am so hot, I think I’m having my first perimenopause hot flashes,” Drew said as she took off her blazer and started fanning herself.

The talk show host joked that maybe she was that excited to interview the duo.

“Oh, I’m so honored!” Jeniffer exclaimed as she helped Barrymore unclip her microphone.

“I’m so sorry, do you feel this?” Barrymore asked Aniston as the Friends alum placed her hand on Drew’s chest to feel her body temperature.

“Oh, I do… yeah, internal heat,” said Aniston.

“Maybe I’m just that excited,” Drew joked as Adam held her hand and jokingly replied, “Oh, it’s a warm hand, you got a hot hand.”

“That’s good cause if it was cold, that would be worrisome,” said Drew.

The 50 First Dates actress said she was glad to get the moment documented.

“Well, I’m so glad I have this moment documented.”

After the show, Barrymore shared the clip of the moment on her Instagram and fans applauded her ‘keeping it real.’

“I either had my first perimenopause hot flash or got really excited to see @jenniferaniston and @adamsandler! Maybe both?” she captioned her post.

“Thank you for helping to normalize talking openly about perimenopause and menopause!” one fan wrote.

“This is so important & real to share. How beautiful!” said another.

“Let’s start calling then Power Surges!” a third added.

“When your body decides to evolve on TV. An historic moment,” a fourth commented.

“This made me smile. Currently experiencing peri-menopause at 39. Excited that people are sharing openly and @jenniferaniston “I’m honored” comment made my heart burst. A small comment that was actually huge. It is a big and power thing happening and should be celebrated as we enter the next phase on our lives, xx” another fan wrote.

“Drew… you have no idea how much I ADORE YOU!!! And these moments mean the world to women!!! It is a moment of humor but SO based in reality. You and I are literally the same age and born within 5 days of each other. Thank you so much for being so authentic and real. I watch all of your shows.
