The two were friends for four years before they started dated.

“I kind of knew when were friends like this is the sort of person I want to be with,” Kopelman said in an interview with Oprah.

He explained how he fell for her:

It was a combination of moments: watching her with my nephew. Traveling with her. Going to museums with her. I knew, adding them up, this was it.

One problem they faced early on was that he had not seen all of her movies.

He added, “She was angry and surprised I hadn’t seen Grey Gardens or Ever After and immediately sat me down and had me watch them.”

2. He Consulted for R- Patz

The art consultant grew up in New York and went to Boston University for college.

He’s an art consultant and has had some famous clients, such Zooey Deschanel and Robert Pattinson.

He actually helped Pattinson choose are for L.A. home.

Kopleman also acts, having appeared in Intern with Dominique Swain, and Friendly Fire, alongside Sean Lennon.

He’s the son of the former Chanel CEO Arie Kopelman. He proposed on the night of his parents’ 40th wedding anniversary.

Barrymore fit right into his tight-knit New York family. In fact, Arie walked his daughter-in-law down the aisle at her wedding.

Will said this about his dad:

He said to me before he walked Drew down the aisle at our wedding , ‘I got another daughter today, out of this.’

Barrymore returns the sentiment. She told C Magazine:

I won the in-laws jackpot. It might be the best karma for having one of the wackiest upbringings. I never had dinner with my mom or dad, let alone together.

4. He’s Jewish

Her sister-in-law, the writer Jill Kargman calls her, “Jew Barrymore,” now that the actress has embraced her husband’s faith.

Although Barrymore hasn’t yet converted to Judaism, she is raising her daughter, Olive, in the Jewish tradition.

Barrymore told Marie Claire:

I try to be a good shiksa wife. I go to Central Synagogue in New York.

Lara Flynn Boyle, who also dated Nicholson, is one of Kopleman’s exes.

He also was linked to Sarah Roemer.

In an interview, Oprah tells him that Barrymore said she’s so surprised that he’s with her and not some “long tall blonde with Michelle Obama arms.”

“That was never me. I had dated them in the past, but none of them have ever made me as happy as my wife,” he gushed.

This is the third marriage for Barrymore, who tied the knot with Jeremy Thomas and Tom Green.
