AceShowbiz - No one loves rain as much as Drew Barrymore does. The actress has shown her free-spirited side as she let her body soak wet when it's raining where she was in a new video she posted on her social media accounts.
On Sunday, July 17, the former child star took to her Instagram and TikTok account to share a clip of her enjoying the rain. The 47-year-old let out a laugh as she stepped outside with her bare face and started running out in the rain.
Letting the rain wash over her face, she took off her sunglasses as she appeared to bask in innocent bliss. She then yelled out, "Whenever you can go out into the rain, do not miss the opportunity," while leaving the clip captionless.
The video has since gone viral, with many commenting on how much they loved it on Twitter. "nobody is healing their inner child harder than drew barrymore," one user reacted to the video. Another gushed, "I want to love anything as much as Drew Barrymore loves everything. Perfection."
A third said of Drew, "There is something about this woman's resilience that spans across generations. She is 'out there', a member of an elite acting dynasty, yet so accessible. Love her." A fourth shared, "sending the drew barrymore in the rain video to my therapist and saying 'this is what I want.' "
Another echoed the sentiment, "i want to see the world through drew barrymore's eyes. she knows something we don't," while a supportive fan noted, "I'm old enough to remember rehab stints and endless trauma Drew Barrymore. If she wants to enjoy some damn rain let her do it. I'm just glad she's alive to enjoy it."
Someone, however, cynically responded to the video, "If I had exceeding amounts of intergenerational wealth I'd love everything too." Disagreeing, another user argued, "drew barrymore lived a childhood full of abuse and trauma and was a drug addict at a super young age and now she's healing from that. being wealthy does not make someone inhuman."
Another naysayer tweeted in response to the clip, "one of my favorite things to bond over with my dad is the extent to which drew barrymore has adopted the most annoying public persona in the world." Meanwhile, a fan defended Drew against the critics as writing, "People being rude about this clearly forget how much Drew Barrymore went through as a child star. The fact she lives a life filled with soooo much joy makes me smile every time."
This isn't the first time Drew posted about her love for rain. Back in May, she shared a video of her getting drenched while showing that it's still raining outside. "If it's raining anywhere you are, just run out in the rain, don't miss the opportunity," she urged her followers at the time.
