Who is Will Kopelman?

Will was born in New York State, USA, on 7 July 1978 – his zodiac sign is Cancer, and he holds American nationality. He’s an art consultant and a bit of an actor, while he’s probably known best for being a former husband of Drew Barrymore, a famous American actress, author and talk-show host.

Early life and education

Will was raised in New York State alongside his sister Jill Kargman, by their father Arie L. Kopelman who was the CEO of Chanel, and their mother Coco (nee Franco) who’s a housewife; Will’s sister is today a successful author, and has published two books: “Momzillas” and “The Ex-Mrs Hedgefund”. Will was interested in a couple of activities while growing up, but was urged by his parents to focus on his education. He studied at a local high school, and was mostly into sports during his teenage years, playing both soccer and basketball for school teams.

Will was a member of his school’s drama club too, and appeared in a couple of school plays. Upon matriculating in 1996, he enrolled at Boston University, from which he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in 2000.

Will’s career

Upon graduation, Will began working as an art consultant, and some of the celebrities whom he has worked for include the actor and actress Robert Pattinson and Zooey Deschanel. He also has two acting credits – Will played Andy in the 2000 comedy movie “Intern”, directed by Michael Lange, and which starred Dominique Swain, Ben Pullen and Peggy Lipton. It follows a magazine intern who has progressed from the mail room to the boardroom, and is now trying to find a spy within the company.

In 2006, Will appeared in the musical drama movie “Friendly Fire”, which starred Sean Lennon and Asia Argento, and covers love and friendship.

Love life and wife

Will’s the kind of a man who prefers to keep the details of his love life to himself, but it’s still widely known that he was married to Drew Barrymore. The two began dating in 2011, after having been introduced by a mutual friend at a charity event, and they were together for around a year prior to announcing in January 2012 that they had become engaged. Drew and Will married on 2 June 2012, with him thus becoming her third husband, as she was married to American bar owner Jeremy Thomas for two months in 1994, and to Canadian comedian and actor Michael Thomas Green from July 2001 to October 2002; Drew had also previously been engaged to Leland III, and to American actor and singer James Leland Walters Jr.

Who is his former wife Drew?

Drew Blythe Barrymore was born in Culver City, California USA on 22 February 1975 – her zodiac sign is Pisces, and she holds American nationality. She has appeared in close to 100 movies and TV series, while she’s perhaps still known best for her portrayal of the lead character Lucy Whitmore, in the 2004 romantic comedy movie “50 First Dates”. It was directed by Peter Segal, also starred Adam Sandler and Rob Schneider, and follows a womanizer who has fallen in love with Lucy, a beautiful girl suffering from short-term memory loss; the movie won six of the 16 awards for which it was nominated.

Drew was raised an only child in Poinsettia Place, West Hollywood, by her father John Drew Barrymore who was an actor, and her mother Jaid Barrymore who was an actress; Drew has three older paternal half-siblings. The family of three moved to Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles, California when Drew was seven, and she studied at Fountain Day School. Drew was only three years old when she made her debut film appearance, in the 1978 romantic drama “Suddenly, Love”, and she then went on to appear in various movies, such as the biographical drama “Bogie” and the science fiction horror thriller “Altered States” both in 1980, and the 1982 family science fiction adventure “E. T. the Extra-Terrestrial”.

Drew’s sudden stardom didn’t do her well, as she became a regular at the nightclub Studio 54 even before becoming a teenager, and was just 13 when she entered a drug rehabilitation program; she then spent a year and a half at a mental institution, and at the age of 14 attempted suicide. Aged 15, Drew became emancipated and moved into her own apartment. One of her first notable performances following the events mentioned above was perhaps her portrayal of the lead character Ivy in the 1992 thriller drama “Poison Ivy”, written and directed by Katt Shea, and which also starred Sara Gilbert and Tom Skerritt. It follows a teenage girl who has befriended her high school introverted peer, and has become friends with her entire family; the movie was nominated for two awards.

A couple of Drew’s other roles in the ‘90s were in the 1994 romantic action adventure “Bad Girls”, the 1996 romantic musical comedy “Everyone Says I Love You”, and the 1998 romantic comedy drama “Ever After: A Cinderella Story”. What marked the 2000s for her was perhaps her portrayal of Mary in the 2009 romantic comedy movie “He’s Just Not That Into You”, directed by Ken Kwapis, and which starred Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Aniston and Jennifer Connelly. The movie revolves around several people and how they read and misread other people; it won one of the five awards for which it was nominated.
