Drew Barrymore, Shiksa Wife

Want to add Drew Barrymore to your list of celebrity sightings? Try dropping in on services at New York’s Central Synagogue.

In an interview for the February 2014 cover Marie Claire, the actress talks about married life with Jewish hubby Will Kopelman, whose father, Arie Kopelman, was the former head of Chanel.

There’s more. When asked about her thoughts on religion, Barrymore added: “I thought about converting, but it takes a lot of work and time. I love the Jewish faith. I love the family values. I can get behind those.”

This new Drew Barrymore, or as sister-in-law Jill Kargman calls her, “Jew Barrymore,” has traded in her wild child leathers for comfy sweatpants and cookbooks — an the occasional ball gown or two. She and Kopelman have a 16-month-old daughter, Olive, and await their second child in March.

For more on Drew’s obsession with food (or in her words, “porn”), her pregnancy, and how she relates (read: cringes) to her early stardom see the February issue of Marie Claire.
