Topher Grace reveals how he crashed the Oscars when he was a USC student on The Drew Barrymore Show


Just before landing his first ever acting role on Fox’s That 70s Show, Topher Grace actually managed to crash the Academy Awards.

The 43-year-old actor told his bizarre tale on The Drew Barrymore Show, revealing that he even saw the actress at the 1998 Oscars.

Grace revealed it was just a few months before he landed the role of Eric Forman on That 70s Show, when he and a friend devised a remarkably simple plan that worked.

Before That 70s Show, Grace was attending college at the University of Southern California, which is right across from The Shrine Auditorium, where the Oscars were held in the late 1990s and early 2000s before the Dolby Theatre.

Barrymore was stunned beyond disbelief that Grace managed to pull that off, with the actor adding he has, ‘been when I was invited.’

‘But before I went, I was still at USC, and USC used to be right across the street from the Shrine,’ Grace began.

‘We were up drinking on a parking garage,’ Grace began, as Barrymore screamed, ‘YES! I already love this story.’

Grace continued, ‘My buddy goes, “I bet if we just drove a limo in tomorrow, just got in that limo line, we could just hop out of the car and walk in.”‘

They showed a photo that Grace at one point shared on Twitter, of a much younger Grace in a full tuxedo on the red carpet.

‘Oh my God you are a baby!’ Barrymore said of the photo, with Grace revealing that was, ‘two months before I started That 70s Show.’

‘We got in the limo, we pulled up, we got out of the car, waved, everyone in the audience goes like, “Whoa, like, who?”‘ Grace joked.

He added, ‘by the time they knew that they didn’t know who we were, we got in there and we’re on the red carpet.’

Grace said they saw Tyra Banks on the red carpet, ‘which was a big deal for us,’ adding then they saw Barrymore.

She asked if it was the year she had the daisies in her hair, which Grace confirmed as they showed a red carpet photo of Barrymore.

Grace currently stars in ABC’s Home Economics and he was also recently announced to return as Eric Forman in That 90s Show.
