Drew Barrymore & Tom Green Reunite After Nearly 20 Years Apart
Our hearts are so full watching this.
Drew Barrymore reunited with an old love, her ex-husband Tom Green, on her new daytime talk show The Drew Barrymore Show.
The two hadn’t spoken to each other in nearly 20 years.
“I have always been attracted to visionaries, comedians and people who make me laugh,” she said while introducing Tom. “I was so attracted to our next guest I even married him!”
Right off the bat, he made sure to note that his parents, Dick and Mary Jane, said “hello” to Drew before adding, “They’re happy for you. We love watching you do amazing things.”
Drew and Tom tied the knot in 2001 and split a year later, which left a significant impact on her.
“I’ve had two nights of great sleep in my life before my daughters were born. I don’t know why but sleep has been a weird thing for me,” she told Tom. “I remember this night just being so content. I was at your parents’ lake house, and I remember hearing all their voices upstairs. I was by myself and going to sleep and I was like, ‘Yeah, this is what safety and contentedness feels like before you’re going to sleep.’ I love your parents, and I really love you and I celebrate you.”
She added of their time apart, “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. 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.”
We love this so much! Watch the full interview below:
