The Charlie's Angels actress hilariously detailed how she recently built up the courage to shoot her shot when she saw a cute guy walking in New York City's Central Park.

"I was attracted to him… so I started following him," Drew begins her story, as she receives laughs from the audience in return. 

Drew went on to excitedly explain to Gayle how she finally walked up to the man, and bluntly said: "Hi. Are you single?" She explains that because she was wearing a balaclava, a recently trendy ski-mask-like knit accessory, the only part of her face that was visible were her eyes, or her "peepers" as Drew called them.

Drew's adorable and candid confession

The story gets even funnier as Drew's next question to the man is: "Are you gay?" because according to the actress, she has "no gaydar."

When he said no, Drew adorably admitted that she simply, "wanted to do something I could be proud of by taking a risk, and you compelled me to take that risk."

While the risk paid off and the two kicked off a conversation, it unfortunately didn't last long, as Drew remembered to ask the man's age and he was 28, while Drew is 46. "That's probably not gonna work," Drew said she had to admit to the cute stranger.

The cute-meet was cut short by the age difference revelation and a girl walking up to Drew to ask if she was in fact, Drew Barrymore, but nonetheless the star told Gayle that she has felt "so great about it."

Gayle commended the mom-of-two for her bravery, and so did fans in the comments of the video about it, saying: "Yes, Drew! We're rooting for you!" and "Thank you for doing that AND for telling us you did it!"
