LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Drew Barrymore is cheering on real life “Never Been Kissed” Scottish singing sensation, Susan Boyle.
Drew herself, starred in “Never Been Kissed” a decade ago, playing bookish 20-something Josie Geller, who goes back to high school on a journalism assignment and eventually ends up falling in love and getting her first kiss.
After learning about Susan’s real life “Never Been Kissed” story from Access Hollywood while on the “Grey Gardens” red carpet in Los Angeles Thursday evening, Drew said she had high hopes for Susan’s first smooch.
When asked who Susan, 47, should kiss first, Drew said it was a decision that despite her movie pedigree, she wasn’t qualified to weigh in on.
“Well who am I – after  years of a life decision to tell her who she should kiss,” Drew said sweetly. “But I hope it’s a good one!”
As previously reported on Access Hollywood, Susan won over the hearts of millions around the world, nabbed an invite from Oprah and brought Demi Moore to tears, after her performance on “Britain’s Got Talent” hit the web.
“Amazed, absolutely amazed,” Susan told Access on Thursday of the attention she’s received since her appearance. “[I] never thought this could happen, it’s really mind blowing!”
