Drew Barrymore Had Her First Hot Flash on Camera With Jennifer Aniston at Her Side

Barrymore got very hot while interviewing Aniston and Adam Sandler. 

Drew Barrymore had her first-ever hot flash, and, lucky for her, it was captured on television. The actor and talk show host, 48, interviewed Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler for the Monday, March 27 episode of her daytime show The Drew Barrymore Show. During the interview, Barrymore had what she believes to be her first perimenopausal hot flash. 

"I am so hot, I think I'm having my first perimenopause hot flashes," she said as she took off her pinstriped blazer and fanned herself. "For the first time, I think I'm having my first hot flash. Whoa!"

Aniston, who helped adjust Barrymore's microphone, replied, “Oh, I feel so honored.” Sandler reached out and held Barrymore's hand and said, “that's a warm hand!”

“Well, I'm so glad I have this moment documented,” Barrymore said. See the clip below, around the 3:40 mark. 

Per the Mayo Clinic, “Perimenopause means ‘around menopause’ and refers to the time during which your body makes the natural transition to menopause, marking the end of the reproductive years. Perimenopause is also called the menopausal transition.” Last week, Barrymore discussed perimenopause with Gayle King for the CBS Mornings series “Facing Fertility.” 

"I realized that I was in perimenopause when I started having my period every two weeks," Barrymore told King. “One doctor also just told me this could last, in the worst-case scenario, 10 years. And I was like, I will never make it 10 years like this! I'm just glad we're even having this conversation because I had heard of menopause but I had never even heard of the phrase perimenopause until I went to the doctors,” she added.

King said that she, too, struggled with hot flashes. “It feels like you're burning inside. For me, it was just a physical heat and then sometimes you have dripping, drenching sweats that can just happen at the most inopportune times," she said, adding that she once had a hot flash while on the red carpet.

From a television broadcast to the red carpet — perimenopause is like, so hot right now!
