Barrymore Thanks Heroic Police Officer For Stopping Car Chase
Drew Barrymore is smitten with a New York City police officer - after he rescued the star from a car chase with a group of overzealous male fans.
The Charlie's Angels star was leaving the New York premiere of her new TV movie Grey Gardens on Tuesday (14Apr09), when she found herself being pursued through Manhattan in a dangerous car chase.
The actress had to pull over to ask police for help and, during an appearance on Late Night with David Letterman on Wednesday (15Apr09), Barrymore made sure to give a special thanks to her handsome hero.
She said, "I love New York and I have to give a shoutout to a certain officer Bentley. I was being chased by these horrible men the other night and I pulled over and I rolled my window down and I said, 'Sir, will you please help me? These mean, awful, scary men are chasing me!' And he goes, 'I love you Drew Barrymore, I'll rescue you!' And I was like, 'Oh my god, and you're cute to boot?' And he did (rescue me)."
