Drew Barrymore’s Wedding Draws a Crowd Outside Her Montecito Home

50 First Dates actress reportedly marries art consultant Will Kopelman in small ceremony

With helicopters circling overhead and a knot of paparazzi encamped across the street, actress Drew Barrymore and art consultant Will Kopelman reportedly were married Saturday afternoon at Barrymore’s Montecito home.

News reports said guests included Cameron Diaz, Barrymore’s close friend and co-star of Charlie’s Angels, Reese Witherspoon, and Barrymore’s business partner and Charlie’s Angels producer, Nancy Juvonen, and her husband, comedian Jimmy Fallon. About 100 guests were said to have attended a rehearsal dinner Friday at the nearby San Ysidro Ranch.

California Highway Patrol officers were parked in Barrymore’s driveway just off the 400 block of Hot Springs Road on Saturday afternoon as paparazzi gathered across the street and curious neighbors gave in to a sudden urge for a stroll along the busy roadway.

Drew reportedly paid $5.7 million for the Colonial mansion in 2010 and then embarked on a major renovation of the property, which is not visible from the street. It is less than 100 yards from the Sycamore Canyon Road estate where Kim Kardashian and NBA player Kris Humphries were married last summer.

The marriage to Kopelman, 33, is the third for Barrymore, 37, who is reported to be pregnant with the couple’s first child. The star of 50 First Dates, Never Been Kissed and The Wedding Singer was previously married to bar owner Jeremy Thomas for a brief period in 1994 and to comedian Tom Green for less than a year in 2001.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
