Drew Barrymore has been escorted off stage at an event in New York City after a fan called for her from the audience and appeared to approach the Hollywood star.

The 48-year-old actress was at the 92nd Street Y venue in the Upper East Side, Manhattan where she had been interviewing Renee Rapp on Monday.

A social media video shows her talking to The Sex Lives of College Girls actress and musician, Rapp, when a person in the crowd calls Barrymore’s name.

Following the incident, where the man announced his name, the pair got up from their chairs as security led them away from the audience.

The event was described as a conversation with Rapp, 23, who would “discuss her experience making the record, stories from the studio and more”.

In recent years, Never Been Kissed star Barrymore has hosted her own self-titled chat show as well as starring in Netflix zombie comedy Santa Clarita Diet.
