“It wasn’t for TV and TV sensationalism,” Barrymore said. “It’s very moving and there was meaning and depth to it, but a fun celebration”

« We were just kids We both grew bigger now and it’s been a lifetime lived, » she added. « It’s wild to reconnect »

During the episode, Green congratulated Barrymore on his success, telling him, « I couldn’t be more excited for your new show »

« It’s nice to see you here everyday, just bringing this explosion of happiness, energy and optimism to the world right now, » he said

« When you say 20 years, sometimes it’s a blink of an eye and sometimes you’re like, ‘Oh my God We’ve been through so much these past 20 years,’ she said, choking. » You’ve had a lifetime and I’ve had a lifetime, and it’s really nice to get together and check in and talk about it It thrills me endlessly I think the world of you and I celebrate you and I always have and I always will « 

Barrymore was in his twenties during his romance with Green, when he was at the dawn of his 30s

« One of the reasons we got to know each other in the first place is that I admired your work so much So I contacted you and asked you to do Charlie’s Angels, and you so graciously said yes Barrymore told Green of the 2000 film

« It was so exciting doing this movie with you, » Green replied. « We sort of got it right right away. We had a lot of laughs together »

Barrymore was alongside Green as his star began to rise with The Tom Green Show on MTV, and with him through his battle with testicular cancer in 2000.In her interview with ET, the actress spoke remembered being « mesmerized » by the way Green was public with her life

« He was doing reality TV before reality TV, so as a girlfriend and supporter of that I was doing a trick that I didn’t fully understand, » she confessed

The now mother of two described to ET her relationship with Green as a « whirlwind » that « just wasn’t lasting »

« It was an electric moment where we both hit it off, that carpet ride and rode it together until sunset, » she said, noting that she will always appreciate his ingenuity and the doors he opened to others

With no lingering negativity surrounding their separation that she can remember, Barrymore admitted that she wasn’t quite sure why it had taken them so long to reconnect

« I guess it goes back to the ‘Timing Is Everything’ sign I have in my entryway Somehow Tom Green and I found our way back into each other’s lives through the weirdly timing and the medium of the TV, and that’s where we first met, ”she said“ So maybe it’s a full circle thing I think for Tom and me, we’re like, ‘Wow, there’s been a lot of growth and life lived on both sides of our universes in the past 20 years’ « 

Drew thanks @TomGreenLive for one of his best nights sleep as they reconnect face to face for the first time in 15 years Watch more today on #DrewBarrymoreShow: https: // tco / x6FtkmBBZ6picTwittercom / zy1WgWMe0m
