Drew Barrymore is responding to Hugh Grant‘s critique of her voice through song.
The Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves actor was recently asked whether he actually sang in their 2007 rom-com Music & Lyrics. And amid singing the praises of auto-tune, he took a moment to comment on his co-star’s musical skills.
“Yes well I do, but I’m auto-tuned beyond belief,” Grant stated while answering internet searches in a video for WIRED’s Autocomplete Interview March 13. “Actually that’s not true. I’m auto-tuned a bit but not as much as some. Drew Barrymore is in that film with me, and I don’t think she’d mind me saying her singing is just horrendous. I’ve heard dogs bark better than she sings.”
He added, “But having said that, once they tuned her up, she sounded way better than me because she’s got heart and voice and Rock ‘n’ Roll whereas I sounded like Julie Andrews and I meant to be kind of Rock ‘n’ Roll as well.”
