The Hollywood star was only 21 years old when she shot the 1996 horror classic, and she has now recalled how she had "a nervous breakdown" while chatting to co-stars Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette on set.

Chatting to Courteney on 'The Drew Barrymore Show', the 46-year-old actress said: "We became so close, Courteney. I remember at the poster shoot I was, like, having a nervous breakdown because I was having a false sense of being pregnant."

The '50 First Dates' star continued: "I kept asking you, 'How do you know if you're pregnant? Like, I'm freaking out! We're supposed to shoot this poster but oh my god, I just started dating somebody! How do you know?'

"I felt safe going to you, like you were the mature, safe person in the room."

Courteney responded: "I was the older one and I was the right person to ask."

Meanwhile, Drew recently revealed that she turned to the 'Queer Eye' team for help as she returned to the dating scene.

The star – who has been single since splitting from her former husband Will Kopelman in 2016 – got tips from the cast of the reality show ahead of a Zoom date with 'Top Chef' star Sam Talbot.

Drew said: "It was so fun. I had Jonathan [Van Ness] holding up, like, silly questions and naughty signs making me giggle.

"I had Tan [France] saying, 'Hey, I notice something over there,' like, ask him about that.

"I had Antoni [Porowski] tell me, 'You are doing a good job and I had Bobby going, 'Hey, I see plants and dogs, see how he is a caretaker,' it was, like, every person. I do feel like I was on their show."
