德鲁·巴里摩尔 is gushing about an amazing case of life imitating art.

On Friday’s episode of 德鲁·巴里摩尔秀, the TV host spotlighted a PEOPLE story that reminded her of a film she starred in almost two decades ago, 这 2004 romantic comedy 50 第一次约会.

There is a miraculous story,” 巴里摩尔, 47, said when sharing Andrew and Kristy Mackenzie’s Real-Life Love story during the news segment of her show.

The couple were first featured in PEOPLE’s series about extraordinary romances earlier this month.

六月, the Mackenzies were involved in a near-fatal motorcycle accident on Father’s Day that sent both of them to the ER.

When Andrew, 58, awoke in a hospital bed, he thought it was 1993 because of memory loss caused by injuries sustained in the crash.

He knew me, but I could see him looking through me,” 克里斯蒂, 54, told PEOPLE of her husband of 37 年. “I tell you, that’s the scariest day of my life. Seeing him look through me like that, I didn’t know how I was going to get him back.

Doctors were uncertain about whether Andrew would ever remember the last 29 years they’d spent together. But not only did Andrew recover, he and Kristy fell in love all over again. And on Aug. 29, the pair renewed their vows in front of their children and grandchildren in North Carolina’s Outer Banks.

Of course when I saw this, I went straight to a 50 第一次约会 place and said we have to talk about this,” Barrymore told her audience. “This is real.

在电影里, Barrymore stars alongside Adam Sandler, whose character attempts to win over her character again and again after amnesia causes her to forget him every time she falls asleep.

Now my favorite part of this story is that Kristy insisted they stay in the same recovery room. She told nurses, ‘If you let us be together, he will get betterand he did,” Barrymore continued in the segment, before exclaiming: “It’s real-life 50 第一次约会!”

Barrymore’s co-host during the hour-long episode, 盖尔·金, was also touched by the story.

All you can say about that — you know, people say love conquers all, love wins,” 她说. “That’s certainly a great, 伟大的, great story.
