WATCH: Drew Barrymore Reveals Her First Crush Was Darth Vader — "He's So Hot!"

  • The world tragically lost David Prowse, the physical embodiment of Darth Vader in the original Star Wars trilogy this weekend.  According to Deadline, Prowse died  at the age of 85 due to complications from COVID-19,

    This is what prompted Drew Barrymore to reveal to her viewers that "my first crush was Darth Vader."

    Her new "co-pilot" Ross Matthews suggested "we could do a deep dive into that." 

    "I used to have a recurring dream when I was a kid," she said. "I would run down these hallways. I was clearly being chased, and then I would get to this panel in the wall and I would do the things and the buttons to open up the wall, but then the cape would close around it and the camera would pan up, and he would look down at me. Uh-huh. I'm into men in masks! Oh my god, he's so hot! I am hot for Vader!"
