Drew Barrymore Tearfully Reunited With Her Ex-Husband After 15 Years of Not Speaking

Drew Barrymore reunited with her ex-husband, Tom Green, on stage during her talk show after 15 years of not speaking. The reunion went down Friday, September 25. 

“I was so attracted to our next guest, I married him,” she said before introducing the comedian. Green filed for divorce from Barrymore just six months after their wedding in 2001. 

Still, The Drew Barrymore Show host got emotional speaking with him, especially after Green shared his excitement over her new show. “It’s nice to see you every day on here just bringing this burst of happiness and energy and optimism to the world right now,” he told Barrymore. 

Through tears, she explained how she feels about him and their relationship. “I really love you and I celebrate you. When you say 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,’” she said. “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. It thrills me to no end. I think the world of you and I celebrate you and I always have and I always will.”

Green (who was also emotional) admitted it’s been too long since the pair have seen or spoken to one another. “We really did not talk for about 15 years, I guess, and this is really the first time we’ve looked at each other face to face in 15 years,” he said.

The couple took time to reflect on their relationship, which sparked after Barrymore asked the comedian to join the cast of Charlie’s Angels. “That was so exciting getting to do that movie with you,” Green said. “And, you know, we kind of sort of hit it off right away pretty much. We had a lot of laughs together. I think one of our first dates we went and bought lobsters, because we both love animals and we both got lobsters and we released them into the ocean.” 

Let me just tell you right now: This is not how a conversation with my exes would go after 15 years. Watch it for yourself, below. Come for the tea, but stay for the healthy example of a relationship between exes.
