Drew Barrymore had a special moment with an audience member on the set of her talk show The Drew Barrymore Show this week. The show's official Instagram account shared a video in which Drew spots an audience member crying as she sits on the stairs of her stage along with co-host Ross Mathews.

“Are you okay? Did anything happen?" Drew asked, not hesitating to get up and walk towards the audience member, who later shared that her name is Olivia. "Whose a-- do I have to kick?”

As Drew walks toward them, Olivia's friend tells Drew, "She loves you so much." To which Drew responds, "Oh, thank God it’s nothing bad," sighing with relief. "Did you see me coming up here? I was like 'Tell me where they are!' Cause I would take them down."

After a producer handed Olivia a mic, she revealed, "You’re just, like, my childhood idol. I don't want to be that person to like, cry." Drew then told her, "Oh, screw that! Be that person!" before going in for a warm embrace and sitting in her lap. "It's so funny that you'd say, 'Oh, I don't want to cry here.' I cry here all the time," Drew joked.

Over the course of the show's three seasons, Drew has become known for being extra vulnerable with her guests, sometimes crying and almost always dropping to her knees to get closer to them. Fans took to the comments section to praise Drew for the sweet interaction even one fan who was actually at the taping where it took place. "As an audience member at this filming, this really touched me," they wrote. "My friends and I were discussing how much of a different experience this show is compared to others. Drew’s vulnerability is so beautiful IRL."
