Fever Pitch

April 8, 2005 ABC News

Jimmy Fallon and Drew Barrymore star in the best Farrelly brothers film since "There's Something About Mary." And that's something.

Fallon plays an insane Boston Red Sox fan. He sleeps on Red Sox pillows, wears Red Sox jerseys. Barrymore tells him, "Your apartment looks like a gift shop." He fell in love with the Sox when he was a kid, what kind of chance does she have?

At one game, she gets hit by a foul ball and knocked unconscious. He's too busy congratulating the guy who caught the ball to notice.

Yes, they fall in love. It's the ultimate boy-meets-girl, boy-loses-girl, team-loses-pennant love story that asks the question: Can love conquer all — even the curse of the Bambino?

Barrymore is so good other actors may accuse her of taking steroids. Jimmy Fallon's the weak spot in this lineup. But movies are a team sport, and this movie did the near impossible. It made me root for the Red Sox.

 

Barrymore and Green Married? Yes. (Maybe.)

In what appears to be the most effective disinformation campaign yet by a betrothed celebrity couple, Drew Barrymore and Tom Green have finally gotten married.

Uh, we think.

Actually, no one knows what to think anymore. But after a series of misleading comments, goofball red herrings and a concocted wedding-gone-wrong skit on Saturday Night Live, Green has finally confirmed that, yes, he and Barrymore are now married.

Barrymore's publicist, Eddie Michaels, even insists it's true this time.

Green apparently broke the news Tuesday during a USA Today chat for his upcoming film, Freddy Got Fingered. "We were recently married. People will figure it out soon," he said. "It has been a year of everyone asking us when we were going to do it. Now it is all over, and we're happy."

Green says he and Barrymore exchanged vows in a private ceremony in Los Angeles "a couple of weeks ago." But Barrymore's publicist said the pair were married out of the country. (Hmmm.)

Wherever it happened, the news (if true) would finally end a nearly nine-month media guessing game about when, or if, they tied the knot. Green, the 29-year-old Canadian skate punk turned MTV freak-show host, and Barrymore, the 26-year-old star of Charlie's Angels and The Wedding Singer, first announced their engagement last July.

Since then, it has been anyone's guess. For months, Barrymore has made offhand comments that, yes, they were married--or no, they were still just engaged. The Tom-foolery reached its apex when Green hinted that he was going to marry Barrymore during his hosting stint on Saturday Night Live last November. It didn't happen: The stunt featured Barrymore getting cold feet and backing out.

If true, this would mark Green's first trip down the aisle and Barrymore's second. She was briefly engaged to actor James Walters in 1992 and briefly married (all of 11 months) to bar owner Jeremy Thomas in 1994.

Married or not, Green and Barrymore's constant fibbing seemed to be an ingenious way to throw off the press when it came to prying personal questions: Just keep lying about it until everyone gives up.

Meanwhile, the couple has had other, less cheery issues to contend with this year. Green and Barrymore are currently renting a house, after their Beverly Hills home was destroyed in a February fire. Drew's dog, Flossie, was dubbed a hero after it roused the sleeping couple out of bed.

"It has been a year of craziness, both good and bad," Green told USA Today. "Amazingly, everything sort of just happened all around the same time. It has been really intensive."

Déjà-Vu! Drew, Tom Married. Again.

Okay, this is just getting ridiculous.

Stop us if you've heard this before: Drew Barrymore and Tom Green tied the knot Saturday in a beachfront ceremony in Malibu.

Confused? Join the club. Green, 29, and Barrymore, 26, technically were married last year in the South Pacific--this, after fooling the public for months over their marital status. But this latest exchange of vows was a formal ceremony for friends and family of the goofball twosome, their publicists say.

Celeb guests in attendance Saturday included Barrymore's Charlie's Angels pals, Lucy Liu and Cameron Diaz, as well as Courtney Love, Adam Sandler, Jared Leto and Saturday Night Live alum Molly Shannon. Green's younger brother, Joe, served as best man, while Love's daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, was the flower girl.

The reception also boasted the always-enjoyable karaoke machine. But no word on whether Sandler jumped on the mike to sing "Love Stinks" or "Grow Old With You," à la The Wedding Singer.

The couple's publicists say Green and Barrymore are currently honeymooning in an undisclosed spot.

News of the formal ceremony should finally put to rest the long national nightmare that was Green and Barrymore's marital status. After announcing their engagement last July, the pair delighted in confusing the media for months over whether they already got married. The speculation boiled over when Green, the Canadian skate punk turned MTV host, hinted that he was going to marry Barrymore during his hosting stint on Saturday Night Live. It didn't happen: The stunt featured Barrymore getting cold feet and backing out at the last minute.

The couple finally got its story straight in April. Green, making press rounds for his box-office stinker Freddy Got Fingered, confirmed that he and Barrymore were married. This time, Barrymore (and both of their publicists) seemed to agree.

No matter what, we're pretty sure this is Green's first marriage, and it's the second for Barrymore. She was previously engaged to James Walters in 1992 and briefly married (for all of 11 months) to bar owner Jeremy Thomas in 1994.

Drew Barrymore Draws Crowd at Barnard for Her Film on Voting
by Dorothy Davis, Oct. 2004

Youth voting has been a hot issue this campaign season. Since only 37 percent of 18--24 year olds voted in 2000, groups to register them have sprung up around the nation. But most of those we spoke to in the capacity crowd at Barnard College one recent Sunday evening to preview Drew Barrymore’s film on the importance of voting said they came to see Drew Barrymore.

Lucy Danziger, the energetic Editor-in-Chief of Self Magazine, celebrating its 25th Anniversary issue and sponsoring the event with MTV and Barnard, told the crowd, “When I was in college and someone invited me to go somewhere on Sunday night it never involved a movie star!” She introduced Drew, who had been chosen by readers as one of “25 Most Inspiring Women” and as “box office royalty.”

The star breezed in to enthusiastic applause and responded to it with a brilliant smile. She wore a clingy beige dress and was beautiful, poised, charismatic, and articulate. Everything you’d expect in a movie star, or in a political candidate.

Despite her connection to Self Magazine, Barrymore was sometimes refreshingly self-effacing. “I didn’t go to college,” she admitted, “so it is very exciting to be presented at a college!” (In her film she revealed she’d never graduated from high school.) “I was the person at the dinner table,” she continued, “who went introverted when politics was discussed.”

“I got invited to a rally to speak about encouraging young people to vote. I fell on my face. I felt so irresponsible going out in front of people to speak about something I didn’t know about.”

Her gutsy response to that humiliation was to spend a year traveling around the country with a video camera and a film crew, all of them working for free, trying to learn about politics firsthand.

The result, “The Best Place to Start: on the Importance of Voting,” a 45-minute film culled from 80 hours of footage, is funny, intelligent, moving and ultimately profound.

In it, Barrymore talks to high school kids cutting classes; to Wesley Clark, who gives her a kiss-off interview on his campaign bus during the Democratic primaries. She gets candid and often hilarious comments from such political personalities as Hillary Clinton, Henry Waxman, James Carville, Bill Maher, Jon Stewart, Ralph Reed, Michael Moore and others. She visits the site of the bloody Selma Alabama Freedom March.

The film, which will be shown on MTV, doesn’t take sides and steers clear of divisive issues. The election it focuses on is for student body president. As a result it will be relevant for a long time. Barrymore is working on making it available to schools. Let’s hope she succeeds, because this entertaining, educational film is a must-see for all young people. (Older ones will enjoy it too.) The Barnard audience gave it a rousing response and peppered Drew with questions. She answered them with intelligence, humor and passion.

Judith Shapiro, Barnard’s President, said in her welcoming remarks that the college “has an interest in seeing that women participate as voters, as candidates, and one day as President of the United States. We have already had a movie called ‘The American President’ starring Michael Douglas. Isn’t it time to have a movie called ‘The American President’ starring Drew Barrymore?”

Drew Barrymore gave a solid performance at Barnard. In time, instead of being the star of such a movie, she may be the real life candidate
