Dishing on Kissing! Drew Barrymore Reunites 'Never Been Kissed' Cast
A kiss to remember. Drew Barrymore reunited with the Never Been Kissed cast on The Drew Barrymore Show more than 22 years after the movie’s release, and Michael Vartan revealed their kissing scene was one to remember for a very different reason behind-the-scenes. The 1999 film followed Josie (Barrymore), an investigative journalist who went undercover at the local high school. At age 25, the former high school nerd had never been kissed before, and when sparks started flying with the English teacher (Vartan) who believed she was a student, things got complicated. Eventually, he learned that she was not a teenager, and the movie ends with them sharing an epic kiss on the baseball field. After a clip of the kiss aired on the show’s Tuesday, September 13, episode, Vartan, 52, and Barrymore, 46, were both glassy-eyed. “I’ve got to say, I haven’t seen that clip in years and standing there I got emotional,” the Alias alum said. “This movie has been a huge part of my life. Every time I am stopped, it’s always Never Been Kissed. That’s a pretty amazing thing to be a part of and this reunion is just wonderful.” The Flower Beauty founder — who also had cast members David Arquette and Molly Shannon on stage — asked her former costar about his favorite memory from the 1999 movie, and even Barrymore didn’t know about his “embarrassing” story. “There’s a story about the famous scene that very few people know about,” Vartan teased, adding that he wasn’t so sure about telling the anecdote.
