Drew Barrymore has been reuniting with on-screen partners recently, but that’s the next level: On her new daytime talk show, The Drew Barrymore ShowThe actress brought a very special guest: her ex-husband, Tom Green. The actress and comedian – who had his incredibly bizarre show from the mid-1990s to the turn of the last century, and which eventually was played on MTV – got married briefly in 2001, and they were officially divorced the following year. The two decide to reconnect live, and prove to be a warm, bittersweet reunion.
“I’ve always been drawn to dreamers, comedians and people who make me laugh,” said Barrymore when she introduced her ex-husband. “I was so drawn to our next guest that I even married him!”
The two never met again via webcam, as they are at the time. It was a personal encounter, with the two of them sitting several feet away, and Green is armed with his new dog. The two admitted that they hadn’t spoken or even seen each other in 15 years. But there was no enmity between them, just kind words.
“I had two nights of deep sleep in my life before my daughters were born. I don’t know why but sleep was a strange thing to me,” Barrymore recalls. “I remember tonight I was so happy. I was in your parents’ lake house, and I remember hearing all their voices upstairs. I was alone and going to bed and said, “Yeah, that’s the feeling of safety and contentment before you sleep.” I love your parents, and I really love you and celebrate Your “.
Barrymore thought about how much time had passed. “When you say it’s 20 years old, sometimes it’s a blink of an eye and sometimes it’s like, oh my God, we’ve lived so much in the past 20 years,” Green said. Barrymore said, “I’ve lived your whole life and my whole life, and it’s really cool to get together and check-in and talk about it.” “I think your world is. I always celebrate you and I always will.”
Green became a major celebrity in the early days, not only through his attractive TV show but also from appearing in movies like Road trip, Harvard robberyAnd and Freddy got fingeredWho wrote and directed it. Barrymore and Greene appeared on screen together in 2001 Charlie’s Angels, With him playing the goofy boyfriend.
