On a lineup of true or false questions, Drew Barrymore had to determine which fact was indeed truthful about Carrie. The list included facts such as, “loves to eat frog legs,” “listens to ASMR before bed,” “has a fear of turtles,” and “has a pet snake.”

Barrymore guessed correctly and Carrie explains, “It’s not like a petrifying fear of turtles, I feel like out of all the animals on the planet they’re the ones who have bit me the most.” She continues, “I grew up in the country, turtles were the easiest thing to catch."

"I love animals so much I would always try to pet them or hug them, and that lead to them taking opportunities. I’ve been bitten by lots of turtles; it does not feel good.”
