Drew Barrymore was brought to tears on Thursday's episode of her self-titled daytime talk show — and she wasn't the only one!

The actress, 48, had staged a reunion with Andie MacDowell and Mary Stuart Masterson, her costars in the 1994 western Bad Girls, when the doors of her studio opened to reveal another actor from the film: Dermot Mulroney.

MacDowell, 65, and Masterson, 57, were in on the surprise, but Barrymore's shock at seeing her longtime friend brought out strong emotions.

Covering her face with her hands, she cried before wrapping her arms around Mulroney, 60, in a loving embrace. And the feeling was mutual.

"I’m so happy to see you, I might cry," Mulroney whispered in her ear.

As the two actors sat on the couch, the tears only continued as they wiped away their weeps with a tissue they shared.

"Oh my God, Dermot, I was just watching you in Anyone But Youwhich I love, by the way, it’s such a good movie," Barrymore told Mulroney, who thanked her for her support.

Barrymore then looked back on their time making the movie, praising Mulroney for being a stabilizing figure in her life at the time.

"You were so good to me. I really was, like, a lost 17-year-old," she said. "I was having so much fun, but I didn’t know how to take care of myself. And you took such good care of me. You were so kind to me."

"Dermot, he really took care of me," she told the audience, looking back on her youth. "I mean, I was wild, guys. I was really, really wild."

Mulroney made sure to let Barrymore know how proud he was of how far she had come. "I'm so happy to see you," he told her, calling Barrymore an "incredible survivor."

He went on to apologize to the audience for his tears. "Sorry guys, I cry now," he said. "I knew I was gonna and I came anyway. I decided, I’m gonna go ahead and cry in public!"

"It is so nice to see a man cry, by the way," Barrymore added.

Bad Girls was released in April 1994. The film was directed by Jonathan Kaplan, who helmed 1988's The Accusedwhich earned Jodie Foster a Best Actress trophy at the Academy Awards.

Reviews for Bad Girls were less successful. The movie followed four former prostitutes — played by Barrymore, MacDowell, 65, Masterson, 57, and Madeleine Stowe — as they go on the run in the Old West after finding themselves innocently involved a series of crimes.

Despite the critical complaints, the star power attached to Bad Girls helped the film open in the No. 1 position. It ultimately grossed a little over $15 million in North America, and $23 million worldwide.

The Drew Barrymore Show airs weekdays on CBS (check local listings).
