Drew Barrymore responds to Hugh Grant insulting her singing in romcom

Drew Barrymore has hilariously responded to Hugh Grant after he insulted her singing in their romcom Music and Lyrics.

The pair appeared together in the 2007 movie, which involved both showing off their vocal skills. However, in a recent interview with Wired, Grant didn't hold back in his opinion of Barrymore's singing, calling it "horrendous".

Classily hitting back, Barrymore took to her Instagram with a clip of her singing the tune 'A Way Back Into Love' from the movie into a hairbrush.

"Oh Hugh-bert, Hubert. That's for you!" she quipped.

"#SingForHughGrant JOIN ME," the star added in the comments.

In the recent interview, Grant answered an online question on whether he was actually singing in Music and Lyrics, replying: "Yes, well I do, but I'm auto-tuned beyond belief. Actually, that's not true, I'm auto-tuned a bit, but not as much as some.

"Drew Barrymore was 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 quipped.

"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'm meant to be kind of rock 'n' roll as well."

Previously, Grant opened up about stepping away from Hollywood after Music and Lyrics, telling the Los Angeles Times: "I developed a bad attitude from about 2005 onwards, shortly after Music and Lyrics. I just had enough.

"Then I went back in 2009 and made another film. At that point, it wasn't me giving up Hollywood. Hollywood gave me up because I made such a massive turkey with that film with Sarah Jessica Parker [Did You Hear About the Morgans?]."
