Drew Barrymore recalled when her eldest daughter, Olive, 11, surprised her by trying on her wedding dress from her marriage to ex-husband, Will Kopelman

The Ever After actress, 49 – who recently gave a candid update about her love life – opened up about the special moment on the latest episode of her talk show, The Drew Barrymore Show. 

‘The other night I came home, and I was told that Olive had a surprise for me,’ the actress explained. ‘And so I came in the room and she was standing there in my wedding dress.’

Her cohosts – including Ross Matthews – let out a shocked gasp upon listening to the story, along with some of the live audience. 

Barrymore continued to reveal her reaction and stated, ‘And I looked at her and I was like, “Oh my God, you look so beautiful!”‘

'The other night I came home, and I was told that Olive had a surprise for me,' the actress explained. 'And so I came in the room and she was standing there in my wedding dress'; seen with Kopelman in 2014

‘I go, “You know, that’s actually technically the second time you wore that dress because you were six months in my belly when I wore it. And I’m saving it for you and your sister.”‘ 

Drew shares daughters Olive as well as Frankie, nine, with ex-husband, Will Kopelman. 

The former couple tied the knot in 2012 after they began dating one year earlier. However, their divorce was finalized in 2016 after four years of marriage. 

Back in 2022, the Charlie’s Angels star discussed the separation during an interview with People and expressed, ‘There was no scandal.’

‘Nothing went wrong, which is cleaner, but makes it harder and more confusing because there isn’t The Thing to point to.’ 

‘We tried so hard to make it work. [A friend] said to me, “Divorce is the death of a dream.” That’s exactly what it feels like, something so final you can’t get it back,’ she added. 

Barrymore also got candid about turning to alcohol in the wake of the divorce – after struggling with addiction decades earlier. 

‘It was just trying to numb the pain and feel good – and alcohol totally did that for me…,’ Drew explained, but said that she quit to prioritize on raising her daughters and focus on work.

‘It felt a lot more real because it wasn’t just me. It was about these kids that I cared so much about.’ 

‘And then I probably cared so much that I was only giving to them and not taking care of myself. It was a messy, painful, excruciating walk through the fire and come back to life kind of trajectory.’ 

Last month in March, the mother-of-two talked to People about encouraging her daughters to pursue their dreams and passions. ‘I love it when my girls get into sports. To me, girls in sports are so awesome.’

‘It’s the coolest thing I’ve ever witnessed. Whether my one daughter is doing figure skating or my other daughter is doing soccer, I will be there at every event. I will not miss one, because it’s so important for me to support them in that are.’ 

The actress added, ‘I also like it when they’re creative and artistic – when they put on a dance, or they do a play at home, or they dress up.’ 

‘They’re the fun things that are ageless and timeless,’ Barrymore expressed to the outlet. 

Earlier this week on Monday, the Never Been Kissed star gave an update on her love life in a video shared to her Instagram page. 

In the clip, she showed off a crossword puzzle from her publication, Drew Magazine, while taking a van tour through Virginia.

The talk show host then told her followers that, although ‘Virginia is for lovers…I do not have a lover.’

Barrymore also added that Virginia was ‘for crossword puzzles’ in a short message that was added in her post’s caption.

The actress’ video was shared not long after she opened up about her post-divorce life on an episode of The Drew Barrymore Show.

The Scream actress sat down for a conversation with Marie Osmond, during which she revealed that she had moved on from the feelings she experienced while reflecting on her past marriages.

‘I had so much shame around divorce and, for some reason, something happened and I said, “I’m no longer willing to feel this way.” And it just lifted from me,’ she said.

Barrymore added that she felt ‘totally liberated’ from the shame she had felt in the past.

Last year in October, the mother-of-two admitted that the romance between Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce inspired her to jump back into the dating field.

On her talk show, Drew explained that the Bad Blood singer’s date in September 2023 with the NFL pro after the Kansas City Chiefs’ win at Arrowhead Stadium gave her the motivation to consider putting herself out there again.

The star said she took her daughter to see the Eras Tour movie and stated, ‘There’s something about this human being that’s like pushing people to express themselves in a very joyous, positive way.’ 

‘I just want to say for me personally, I have been single for seven years, happily. Seeing her on that first date out there in the box with his family, I really had a big  Oprah a-ha moment.’

‘There was something so normal about it, and obviously Taylor Swift is everything but normal,’ she continued.

‘But it was just like, “I’m a female, I’m going to go out on a date with a male, I’m not going to overthink this, I am not going to be the dark horse and be secretive and weird about it.” It was like, she just went on a date.’

Barrymore then announced, ‘And it made me think I could just go out on a date,’ which was followed by supportive applause and cheers from the audience.

‘This was evidence of not being affected by what other people think,’ the star expressed, continuing, ‘It was so calm, confident and normal that it just made me think I should do this too.’

Aside from Kopelman, Drew has also been married two other times, with her first being to Jeremy Thomas from 1994 to 1995. She then said ‘I do’ to Tom Green in 2001 until their divorce was finalized the following year.
