Drew Barrymore Reacts To Kristen Wiig Dating Her Ex

Is it ever okay for a friend to date an ex?

Kristen Wiig

Now, she's a mother and wife. But that wasn't always the case for Drew Barrymore. Before meeting husband Will Kopelman, the actress was in a serious, five-year relationship with The Strokes' drummer Fabrizio Moretti. After they split in 2006, Barrymore didn't expect him to one day be dating one of her girlfriends!

Moretti is currently dating Bridesmaids star Kristen Wiig, who also happens to be one of Barrymore's close friends (and someone who does hilarious impressions of the Whip It director on SNL). So, how does Barrymore feel?


"It all seems so wacky and incestuous, but that's kind of how life works," she told Allure's January issue, which hits stands on Christmas day. "It seems fitting that they would find each other. I was like, 'Right, of course, that makes perfect sense.'"

Props to Barrymore for not playing the girl code card—which she clearly could have. Calling it "incestuous" refers to the fact that Wiig and Barrymore are like sisters. However, sisters don't usually date each other's exes.

Regardless, we give her major props for taking the high road on this one. She's got much more important things to concentrate in her life, like her happiness and her new family.


"He's my home now," Barrymore tells the mag about her husband. "It makes me almost want to cry. He's the father of my child, and I'm the mother of his child. I'm finally a part of a family, and it's a miracle."

Yes, a Christmas miracle!
