Drew Barrymore Opens Up About Her Emotional Interview with Ex-Husband Tom Green

Drew Barrymore is reflecting on her candid interview with her ex-husband Tom Green.

In an interview with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday (February 2), the 45-year-old actress opened up about reconnecting with her ex after not speaking with him for 15 years. Their emotional conversation aired on The Drew Barrymore Show in September.

Drew explained to Jimmy, “There were no questions prepared for that. I had an offline conversation with him because we didn’t want it to be some bougie Hollywood moment, like, ‘Let’s reconnect in front of the cameras.’”

Drew and Tom began dating after she reached out to him about starring in Charlie’s Angels. They got engaged in July 2000 and married a year later. They ended up splitting in December 2001.

“The thing I love about Tom is he is one of the first people to put a camera on his life, when it was a giant, fat camcorder and there were no easy phones available,” Drew told Jimmy. “His stuff was on VHS, I remember watching his VHS tapes. It’s what gave me the idea, because I just said, ‘Gosh, would you just want to reconnect? It’s been a long time and I would just love to honor what you did. You broke down all these doors, you were a pioneer. And I would love to talk about it and have it be an excuse for us to say hello.’”

“That’s the tone,” Drew continued. “I sent him a video and then he sent me one back. And immediately, he made me laugh and that’s my kryptonite, laughter.”
