Drew Barrymore confirmed that her grandfather’s corpse was stolen after he died in 1942. It has been a longstanding rumor about actor John Barrymore. Reportedly, friends stole his corpse and propped him up against a poker table for “one last party.”

Drew admitted that it was true and even believes that it could have been the inspiration for the popular movie Weekend at Bernie’s. She said that Errol Flynn, comedian WC Fields, and the poet Sadakichi Hartmann were her grandfather’s friends that did this.

She said, “They did! And I will say this, I hope my friends do the same for me. I think death comes with so much morose sadness, and I understand that, but if it’s okay, just with me, if everyone can be really happy and celebratory and have a party, that would be my preference.”
