Drew Barrymore revealed that she was the "third wheel" on a date with Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron.
"I was just thinking about, back in the day, we went to a Kings of Leon concert together, you, me and Zac Efron," Barrymore, 46, told Hudgens. "And it was one of the funnest nights of my life."
Hudgens, 32, chimed in that the Kings of Leon concert was a "wild time."
"Are you kidding me? It's like, still a story I tell to this day," said Hudgens, E! News reported. "That was such a wild time. I remember being there, and I was like, 'What's happening? This is so amazing.' You were so sweet."
Barrymore added: "I was literally your and Zac's third wheel! It was so fun, and you guys were so cute and cozy and I just had the best time."
Entertainment Weekly reported in October 2008 that several celebrities attended a sold-out Kings of Leon concert at the Microsoft Theater, formerly called Nokia Theatre LA Live. The star-studded audience included Cameron Diaz, Mark Ruffalo, Liv Tyler, and Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins.
Hudgens and Efron dated for five years until going their separate ways in December 2010. Hudgens later dated Austin Butler for nearly nine years before breaking up in 2020.
While on "The Drew Barrymore Show," Hudgens also opened up about her current boyfriend Cole Tucker and how they met during a Zoom meditation group. Hudgens told Barrymore that she slid into Tucker's soon after.
"I mean, I'm such a go-getter. If I want something or someone, I'm going after them," the "Spring Breakers" actress said. "I fully just slid into his DM and was like, 'Hey, it was nice to meet you.' I think there is no shame in making the first move. If you want it, why wait for someone else to give you what you want?
