The actor let the detail slip during an episode of her talk show while participating in the segment “Did the Crime. Sip the Wine”.
Barrymore said that she was supposed to send the clip to her Charlie’s Angels co-star, but it ultimately found itself in the inbox of a 16-year-old.
“My best friend happens to be Cameron Diaz and I sent her a video of me getting dressed,” she said, adding that they “get dressed in front of each other all the time”.
Barrymore added: “I sent it, it turns out, to a 16-year-old boy named Matthew.”
The Hollywood star said that the boy wrote her a reassuring message back, stating: “I have your video, but I promise I won’t put it out anywhere.”
She continued by praising Matthew, saying: “Thank God for Matthew being such a kind, young gentleman and not [putting] it out there in the world.”
It was also revealed in the same episode that Barrymore sent Hugh Grant a letter of support after his arrest in 1995.
