Drew Barrymore's star shines over Hollywood

Drew Barrymore couldn't resist having a bop when she turned out for the premiere of her new comedy 50 First Dates, part of which is set in Hawaii. The actress was joined on the red carpet by two hula dancers in traditional costume, and the alluring trio set flashbulbs blazing as they shimmied into the screening.

But Drew would be forgiven for feeling a little excited, because Tuesday was a big day for the 28-year-old. Earlier in the afternoon she was greeted by a huge crowd of fans when she was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.

"I've just been a ball of nerves about this day and now here I am," she said as the plaque was unveiled. "That's not mine is it? Oh my God. I'm, like, right in front of it. ... This is insane!"

The performer managed to regain her composure in time for the screening, but there were more smiles once the comedy got underway. Funnyman Adam Sandler also appears in the flick, which tells the story of a besotted lover whose girlfriend has short-term memory loss. As a result, his character must charm the object of his affections into falling for him every day.
