Drew Barrymore stunned F1 driver Daniel Ricciardo as she revealed the shocking backstory of a tattoo they share.
Speaking on her show on Thursday, the actress linked up with Aussie Ricciardo and filmed her 'Drewber' segment, where she drives around with guests for light-hearted banter and conversation.
The Charlie's Angels actress explained that she had got her tattoo illegally when she was 13-years-old.
Barrymore said “I was already so excited to meet you. But maybe we do seek angels to look over us as we live a little bit of a dangerous life.
"And I’m grateful that they’ve watched over me the way they have.”
She then added that she got it done in Los Angeles at the 13 and explained that her angel tattoo wasn’t even her first.
“Wait. You were 13 years old? Please tell me that’s your first tattoo,” Ricciardo said, to which Barrymore admitted, “Nope. Nope. It wasn’t.”
Ricciardo asked the most obvious question - whether it was legal - to which Barrymore enthusiastically answered no. She then went on to joke that she loved illegal tattooing.
“It’s so funny because I’m so torn. Like, now I’m 48 and a mom of two girls and it all comes full circle. [They ask], ‘When did you get your first tattoo?’ I’m like, … 13….'” Barrymore added.
Speaking about her daughters, during their car ride, Barrymore also spoke about the difficulties of being a mother as her children want to try more adventurous activities, like riding motorcycles.
“My daughter Olive, she is 11 going on 19, she told me in bed the other night that she wanted to start driving motorcycles,” the actress said.
“I’m really asking for myself because my kids are going to want to get into all sorts of like fun things, like riding motorcycles and feeling that freedom that I felt and I want that for them, but I am scared.
Reflecting on his own experience, Ricciardo highlighted how his mother dealt with his high-risk career as a F1 driver.
“My mum still gets probably as nervous as she did 20 years ago," he said.
“You’ll learn to accept that it is what your kid loves doing more than anything else and that will give you enough happiness.”
Barrymore agreed and said it sounded like she put your happiness in the front seat and hers in the back, A lovely sentiment that Ricciardo said was articulated beautifully.
