The Truth About Drew Barrymore's Friendship With Keanu Reeves

Drew Barrymore has been acting since she was a young child, so it makes sense that she would be very well connected in Hollywood. The actress has starred in many movies with tons of A-List stars, and she has a habit of winning over her co-stars and forming long-lasting friendships with them long after they're done working together. Some of Barrymore's closest friends are her former co-stars, per Ranker. Barrymore has stayed close to actors like Adam Sandler, whom she starred with in movies such as "The Wedding Singer," "50 First Dates," and "Blended" (via The Things).

She's also still very close to her "Charlie's Angels" co-stars, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu. Barrymore is also good friends with former "Saturday Night Live" fan favorite, Jimmy Fallon. The pair both starred in the baseball-themed comedy "Fever Pitch," (via Pop Sugar) and their children are now buddies as well. However, it seems that the actress holds a very special place in her heart for actor Keanu Reeves, who she worked with at a very young age.

Drew recalls a memorable night with Keanu

People reports that Drew Barrymore had a sweet reunion with former co-star Keanu Reeves on her talk show this week. During the sit-down, the two reminisced about working together on the film "Babes in Toyland" when Barrymore was just 11 years old. The two stayed in contact following the film, and years later Reeves gave Barrymore a ride on his motorcycle and created one of the most memorable nights of her life.

Barrymore explained to Reeves that she was celebrating her 16th birthday at a club when "you walked in and you grabbed my hand and you took me outside and you put me on your motorcycle and we drove at the warp speed of my life." She described the impromptu excursion as "the ride of my life," describing feeling "so free. ... it was just this moment where I just remember loving life and being so happy."

The experience has stuck with Barrymore all these years. "And I hold it so dear because the older we get, the harder it is to get to that feeling," she explained. "You can't have a better Sweet 16 than being put on your motorcycle and having the moment where you understand what freedom is."
