Drew Barrymore reveals her favorite thing about Britney Spears’s wedding: 'I was like, thank you!'

On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Monday, Drew Barrymore spoke about attending Britney Spears’s small but star-studded wedding in June.

“It was intimate, it was fairy tale-ish, it was very sweet,” Barrymore said. “It was, you know — there was no press. It was the way she wanted to do it.”

Barrymore also revealed the one particular part of Spears’s wedding that she was grateful for.

“I also thanked her for not having a sit-down dinner,” Barrymore said. “God, do I hate sit-down dinners!” “What are you talking about?” Fallon asked. “Guess what, we all got dressed up,” Barrymore replied. “We all want to dance, and we want to hang out.”

Barrymore then went on a mini rant explaining why exactly she hates the sit-down dinner that traditionally follows a wedding.

“They always separate you, like, ‘We’re gonna force you into a new social endeavor.’ The person you came with that you want to hang out with is over there. Why did you do that?!” Barrymore said. “And now let’s eat some bizarre food that you didn’t choose. And…and…and I hate it!”
