Drew Barrymore never knew she had a “crooked smile” until her friend, host Jimmy Fallon told her.

During a segment of his broadcast ‘The Drew Barrymore Show’, the Hollywood star confessed that he did not know that he made a face every time he spoke and smiled.

“I didn’t know I had a crooked smile until you told me on ‘Fever Pitch,'” Barrymore told the ‘Tonight Show’ host. “And now I understand why people make a face,” Barrymore said of his characteristic way of speaking. “I said you have a nice smile. You talk out of the side of your mouth,” Fallon said.

Barrymore played workaholic businesswoman Lindsey Meeks in the 2005 romantic comedy, while Fallon played laid-back high school teacher Ben Wrightman.

As they improvised the dialogue during filming, Barrymore’s unconventional smile was noticed by the host’s character, and it stuck with him.

“Yeah, I improvised it, but it came out in the movie. People enjoyed it,” the former ‘Saturday Night Live’ cast member boasted.
