Lowe told Barrymore he has ‘suspicions’ that his father Charles and Jaid, as Barrymore puts it, ‘ended up together,’ one night at the club. 

‘I wouldn’t doubt it,’ she said, as Lowe agreed, ‘Neither would I.’

While the idea of a parental hookup may cause others to squirm, the Parks And Recreation alum admitted he was supportive of their brief relations.

‘I kind of like the thought of it, I have to say,’ he continued.

‘Literally, my mom was fun, is fun. She was a good-time gal,’ Barrymore acknowledged and Lowe added, ‘My sense is, as mothers go, she was in her wheelhouse at Helena’s.’

Barrymore then admitted that she used to party with her mother. 

‘She and I used to go to Helena’s, I feel, like multiple times a week. You know how people hit the gym a few times a week? We hit Helena’s a few times a week,’ the 50 First Dates star spoke of her mother’s party animal tendencies.

Lowe called Helena’s ‘amazing’ and noted the ‘disparate, insane, high level of people that were there.’

Among the crowd, Barrymore recalled spotting Sean Penn and Madonna at the club ‘all the time.’ In addition to the former couple, Drew would frequently see Jack Nicholson which led to their friendship and a reunion at a party at Nicholson’s house. 

‘Jack Nicholson was a fixture [at Helena’s],’ Barrymore said.

‘He went to Helena’s as many nights a week as me and my mom. And funny enough, I ended up, like, partying with him a lot years later at his house. It was never inappropriate. We would just party and talk and hang out. I love Jack. But I feel like I made friends with him at Helena’s, which then matriculated into, a decade later, us, like, partying at his house,’ she said.

The Literally! With Rob Lowe podcast is on the Team Coco podcast network.
