Drew Barrymore has joined TikTok in a hilarious way as she dressed up as her character Josie Grossie from the film Never Been Kissed.

Not all actors are quite as open and up for giving their fans what they want. However examples including the revelation that she drunkenly 'made out' with Hugh Grant for '10 minutes' at New York clubhouse prove Drew is totally here for her fans.

The talented actor stole all of our hearts as the geeky Josie Geller in the 1999 romantic-comedy, Never Been Kissed, and now Drew has reprised this character in a hilariously creative way.

Many of us will remember the devastating scene in Never Been Kissed when Josie waits outside of her house for her prom date, a popular jock at her school, to pick her up in a limo. Unfortunately, as her prom date arrives, Josie realizes that his invitation was a prank as he and his real date throw eggs at Josie from the sunroof of the limo.

Although this was a heartbreaking scene in the film, Drew's costume was undeniably hilarious and the actress has managed to bring the character of Josie back to life in a comedic fashion, more than 20 years after she first hit our screens.

Drew wore her garish pink prom dress from the video and poorly performed a TikTok trend. She was out of time with the song and her dance moves were erratic as she answered 'questions she gets asked all the time' while in character as Josie. 

"Do you wear your prom dress everyday?" was the first question asked. "No silly! Only on special occasions!" was the response from 'Josie'. 

When asked, "what's your favorite food?" the reply from Drew's character referenced her brutal egging and said, "NOT.EGGS."

"Are you Drew Barrymore?" was the final question asked, to which 'Josie' said, "I'm Josie Geller, but people do say we look alike!"

This character she plays in Never Been Kissed is nothing like the actress herself. Recently, Drew Barrymore also recently sent a flirty comment to Leonardo DiCaprio, showing she's a far cry from Josie who struggled to flirt with high school boys, let alone a Hollywood actor.

Although she may not be very much like her on-screen character, Drew looked just the same as she did in the movie which came out more than 20 years ago in 1999. Drew Barrymore swears by this serum for tighter skin and a youthful glow and it clearly works as the star looked fantastic.
