While they’re no longer “Charlie’s Angels,” Cameron Diaz has still got her bestie Drew Barrymore’s back.
Diaz was promoting her new comedy, “Sex Tape,” on KIIS’s “Kyle & Jackie O” show in Australia, when the subject of her on-screen daughter came up.
The actress agrees that the young actress, Giselle Eisenberg, does remind her of Barrymore’s Gertie in the perennial classic “E.T.”
“Oh, yeah. That’s cute. She does, now that you mention it. And she’s as bright and lively as Drew is as well. She’s a sweet little girl,” she tells the host, bragging about the girl’s “Wolf of Wall Street” role as well.
That’s when the conversation takes an awkward turn, as Kyle says, “Let’s hope she misses out on the Drew Barrymore drug years. Because those were a great thing to watch, but not good to be in, I’d imagine.”
“I’m sure, Kyle, you’ve never been through a drug phase, have you? Or alcoholism or anything like that? Pretty clean. Always did it right? Listen, congratulations.”
Things go from bad to worse when Kyle tries to say that he’s good pals with her rumored boyfriend, Benji Madden.
Standing up for her friend, Diaz abruptly cuts the chat off while the hosts were asking Jason Segel about his weight loss, saying, “We’re having to go now. Sorry, they’re wrapping us up. Sorry.”
