Tom Green Wife

In July 2000, Tom engaged to actress Drew Barrymore. The duo met after Barrymore, who was a fan of Green’s show, asked Green to appear in Charlie’s Angels, which Barrymore starred in and produced. Green and Barrymore married on July 7, 2001.

In Green’s book Hollywood Causes Cancer, he writes “We lived together for a year before we were engaged, and we were engaged for a year before we got married”. Barrymore also appeared in her then-fiancé’s infamous 2001 film Freddy Got Fingered.

During the buildup to their wedding Green and Barrymore frequently joked with the media about when and where they were going to wed. The most notable incident came on November 18, 2000, when Green hosted the American television show Saturday Night Live.

During the monologue, Green brought Barrymore on stage and teased the audience about the couple marrying at the end of the episode. Ultimately, the stage was set for a wedding before Barrymore, in the end, got “cold feet” and left Green alone to end the show.

The SNL incident initially left viewers and the media confused about whether the couple had actually planned to marry on live TV, or were simply staging a publicity stunt. Eventually, Green also went on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to toy with the public once again, this time claiming that his bride might be pregnant.

Barrymore and Green filed for divorce on December 17, 2001, citing irreconcilable differences. Their divorce became official on October 15, 2002. In July 2000, Tom Green became engaged to actress Drew Barrymore.
