Drew Barrymore has been a Hollywood mainstay since she was just a youngster, and her three marriage’s have been equally high profile as her career. Find out about her ex-husbands.
Drew Barrymore, 46, has grown up before our eyes! The child actor turned talk show host has been candid about all aspects of her life in the public eye, including her romantic relationships. As fans would know, she first got married in the 1990s to her boyfriend of six months, before marrying a fellow actor, and eventually saying ‘I do’ to the father of her two children. Read on to find out everything you need to know about Drew’s three ex-husbands.
The E.T. star met her first husband, Jeremy Thomas in Los Angeles when she was 19. She and the bar owner dated for just six months before they tied the knot in March 1994. It was reported that one of Drew’s pals suggested they should get married because they “were so in love” but the romance was not to last. She filed for divorce just two months later, and paperwork was finalized in 1995.
Drew and fellow actor Tom Green, 50, met in the late 90s when his hit MTV show The Tom Green Show was gaining traction. His career was taking off, and the couple went on to star in the 2000 hit Charlie’s Angels. They later got married — but only for a year. Tom filed for divorce in 2002. The pair had little interaction throughout the following years, but recently reunited on her eponymous talk show in which Tom revealed he wasn’t invited to Drew’s third wedding. “I’ve never been invited to an ex’s wedding,” he stated. “[It] makes sense to me,” Tom said. “Honestly, I think it makes sense to probably not go to an ex’s wedding.”
He also made an appearance on the talk show in September 2020, and they both marveled at how quickly time had passed. ”When you say it’s 20 years, sometimes it’s the blink of an eye and sometimes you’re like, ‘Oh my God, we’ve lived so much in these last 20 years,’” Drew told Tom. “You’ve had a whole life and I’ve had a whole life and it’s just really nice to come together and check-in and talk about it. I think the world of you. I celebrate you and I always have and I always will.” So sweet!
Drew married her third husband Will Kopelman, 43, in 2012. Although the couple officially divorced in April 2016, the pair still remain close friends as they share two daughters together, Olive and Frankie. Drew proved there was truly no bas blood between them when she sat down on Dax Shepard’s podcast, Armchair Expert, revealed she loves his new wife, Alexandra Michler
“He just got remarried actually last week to this most amazing woman,” she told Dax when discussing her ex-husband. “This incredible woman Allie, and I just feel like I won the lottery with her, like, I really did. I feel like I’m lucky that there’s this new beautiful soul that came into our lives.” The actress did admit that she gives “them space,” adding, “We hang out. We do dinners with all the kids, birthdays. We might take a trip together, we’re finding our way in a beautiful, slow, respectful manner.”
“I’m just so lucky because she came into Will’s life and got to know my daughters very well and very real, saw all the warts and all the hearts, everything in between. Literally was like, ‘I choose you,’” she said. “It’s a miracle, and I know miracles exist because I was so devastated that our relationship didn’t work out because I wanted this.” Little Olive and Frankie were even flower girls at their dad’s wedding! Talk about successful co-parenting.
