While Drew Barrymore was intrigued by the idea of owning her late grandfather John Barrymore's former home known as The Barrymore Estate, she didn't share the same enthusiasm for the abode's $17 million listing price. 

"That's why I didn't buy it, because that's just a crazy price tag," she said on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen while discussing the house, which was listed by Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles agents Josh Altman and Tracy Tutor. "I couldn't swing that."

Although she didn't purchase the home, Drew was able to tour the property. "I did go in and walk around and take a look, full well knowing these realtors were like, 'We hate you because we know you're not buying this house and you're just jerkin' our chain,'" she recalled. "But I'm, like, crying in every room because I had never gotten to go to that house before."

"By the time I was born, he died in 1942 and my dad pretty much sold all the stuff, it was dispersed," she continued. "I've never really had any heirlooms of my family so it was very emotional for me. And it was emotional for the realtors because they knew they weren't gonna close a deal."

The 6,976-square-foot home, built in 1926 for late director King Vidor before John Barrymore finished it in 1928, boasts seven bathrooms, 11 bathrooms, a cigar lounge with a bar, and an incredible library that Josh called his "favorite room of the house," on MDLLA's September 1 episode. 

 "It's a piece of Hollywood history," Josh said at the time. "This house has definitely seen some things over the years."
