Barrymore provided a “a little backstory” that “we haven’t seen or spoken to each other in far too long.” Green relayed that his parents, her former in-laws, were “very happy I’m here” and “say hello” and that they were proud of Drew over the success of her show, which just debuted.
She continued, fighting her emotions, “I will never forget that night. I love your parents — and I really love you, and I celebrate you.”
Green said they didn’t talk for “about 15 years” after their 2001 split, adding it’s also “really the first time we’ve looked at each other face-to-face in 15 years.”

“We kind of hit it off right away,” Green recalled. “One of our first dates we went and bought lobsters. Because we both love animals .. we released them into the ocean.”
The whole thing was positive and fun — and Green tweeted after the fact that it was “such a nice experience.” He said “life is strange sometimes,” but in this instance, “it was quite sweet.”
This was such a nice experience today. It felt good to chat with Drew again for the first time in 15 years. And on national TV! Life is strange sometimes but in this case it was also quite sweet. Best of luck with the show Drew! You deserve it. 😀 https://t.co/REd5bg0MSv
