[Blind Gossip] The woman in this third couple is also an actress and is close friends with the woman in the second couple.
She has been married more than once. This marriage certainly seemed a bit more thoughtful and serious by comparison, but even that’s not enough to hold it together.
Neither of them are bad people. They just come from two different kinds of families and two completely different worlds, and her world completely overshadows his. She has the name, the fame, the money, the enduring career. He… well, he doesn’t have much of a career to phone home about.
At least she got the child/ren she always wanted out of the marriage.
Couple 3: Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman
Actress Drew Barrymore and her husband Will Kopelman are getting a divorce!
As you can see by the date of the original blind item, we told you about this at the end of last year.
Here is the announcement:
Sadly our family is separating legally, although we do not feel this takes away from us being a family. Divorce might make one feel like a failure, but eventually you start to find grace in the idea that life goes on.
Our children are our universe, and we look forward to living the rest of our lives with them as the first priority.
That’s some weird Hollywood logic right there. Name one couple you personally know where divorce didn’t affect their being a family!
Drew Barrymore always talked about Will Kopelman like she was ticking off qualifications on a resume of a person she was hiring.
Barrymore admitted that it “was never really love at first sight” with Kopelman.
“Will struck a lot of my pragmatic sides,” she said. “He was someone who was always reachable on the phone, someone who was a classy human being, someone who has this incredible blueprint of a family that I don’t have.”
While she admitted that they are “polar opposites” when it comes to expressing their likes and dislikes, she admired that Koplelman “chooses to be a good person every day.”
Pragmatic. Classy. Family. Good person. That’s not love or passion. That’s a job interview! We’ve heard more passion expressed by people looking to hire a plumber off of Angie’s List.
Perhaps he does have those qualities, but there isn’t much else there. He’s a rich kid from a nice family who never had a real job. And don’t try to tell us that “art consultant” is a real job. How many full-time art consultants do you know? Zero.
Well, at least she got the two kids she always wanted out of the marriage. And what will become of them? From People:
Barrymore and Kopelman share two children – Olive, 3, and Frankie, 1 – and had been married for nearly four years. A source previously told people that the couple have been working out the next steps in their split, including living arrangements for the girls. They’ll likely stay in New York City, where Olive goes to preschool, for the near future, the source said.
This is Drew Barrymore’s third divorce. She was previously married to bartender Jeremy Thomas in 1994 for two months and to comedian Tom Green in 2001 for six months. Just one more and she gets a prize from JLo.
Hey, did you catch the “phone home” clue from Drew’s first memorable film, ET? Of course you did! You’re not amateurs!
Congrats to Gedull for being first with the correct answer and to Rottweiler for being first to recognize the “phone home” clue. Good job!
