Drew Barrymore broke the Guinness World Record for wearing the widest wig on Friday’s “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” Watch below!

While Barrymore sat for a typical interview about her new show, “Santa Clarita Diet,” she was also game to participate in Fallon’s hijinks. The host told his Fever Pitch co-star, “We all know you hold the record for being one of the coolest people in the world. Tonight, I thought you could attempt some Guinness World Records here on the show.”

Noting Barrymore has a makeup line called Flower Beauty, she was first tasked with doing the most lipstick applications in 30 seconds. She ended up finishing the line of participants with eight seconds left, though her handiwork left a bit to be desired. Next, the actress had to run through the most paper banners in 30 seconds.

All were amusingly designed to read “Go Drew.” Fallon asked, “How fun is this gonna be?” Barrymore went into beast mode, and powered through all the banners. Then came what “might be the coolest one yet.” Explaining that the current record holder for wearing the world’s widest wig donned one that was five feet and two inches, Fallon introduced Barrymore’s faux hair at an astounding width of seven feet, four inches.

It’s unclear how much it weighed, but Barrymore appeared to wear it with delight. And an actual Guinness staffer was on hand to announce, “It is an official Guinness World Record title!” Check out the funny video below!
