After showing the iconic scene where Josie gets her very first kiss on the pitching mound of the school baseball field, the Alias actor admitted: ‘I’ve got to say I haven’t seen that clip in years and standing there I got emotional.’

‘This movie has been a huge part of my life. Every time I am stopped it’s always, Never Been Kissed.

‘That’s a pretty amazing thing to be a part of and this reunion is just wonderful.’

When asked if he had any special memories, Michael said he got a little hot under-the-collar during the smooching scene.

Those ‘feelings’ happened to be below the belt.

‘The feelings were, they just happened, and I very quickly realized I was in a very bad spot because I was wearing very loose sort of like slacks and I thought, “This is going to be a disaster when they cut, I must preemptively end this,”‘ he continued.

‘So what I did, in a panic, I just yelled cut, and bent over and said, ‘Oh guys, sorry, my back, I put my back out playing ball.”… Anyway, I went off into my corner and … finally I was able to compose myself, and luckily the subsequent scenes went on without a hitch,’ he continued, adding: ‘You are a very good kisser.’

Never Before Kissed fans can look forward to more doses of Josie throughout season two of Barrymore’s chat show, where she’ll return for red carpet interviews and other bits.

‘Stepping back into Josie Grossie’s shoes is so easy,’ Drew told Entertainment Tonight.

‘I don’t think I have ever not been in her shoes. I loved this character so much. She was so personal for me. This whole story for me was not to do another rom-com, it was to embody a human being that represents us all. How and when do we become OK with ourselves? That is what Never Been Kissed is all about.’
