It’s certainly on trend in Hollywood to be friends with your ex.

But Drew Barrymore is going that extra mile, after saying that she ‘worships’ her ex-husband Will Kopelman’s new wife, Alexandra Michler. 

Barrymore, 46, split with Kopelman, 43, in 2016 after four years together, and two children, Olive, nine, and Frankie, seven.

Last month, art consultant Kopelman married Vogue director Michler, 33, in Massachusetts, and Olive and Frankie served as flower girls at the wedding. 

‘He just got remarried actually last week to this most amazing woman,’ Barrymore said on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast on Monday.

‘This incredible woman Allie, and I just feel like I won the lottery with her, like, I really did. I feel like I’m lucky that there’s this new beautiful soul that came into our lives.’

While the E.T. star she doesn’t ‘try to be her best friend’ she said Michler ‘knows that I absolutely worship the ground she walks on, and I’m her biggest cheerleader.’

However, she keeps her distance, saying: ‘But I give them space. We hang out. We do dinners with all the kids, birthdays. We might take a trip together, we’re finding our way in a beautiful, slow, respectful manner.’

Barrymore continued: ‘I’m just so lucky because she came into Will’s life and got to know my daughters very well and very real, saw all the warts and all the hearts, everything in between.’

‘Literally was like, “I choose you.” It’s a miracle, and I know miracles exist because I was so devastated that our relationship didn’t work out because I wanted this.’

Will announced his and Alexandra’s engagement in January, taking to his private Instagram account to share the news with a black and white snap, writing: ‘Love you love you love you love 1/30/2021.’

Will and Drew wed in Montecito in 2012 and amicably ended their four-year marriage in 2016.

Divorce was the ‘last thing’ Drew wanted for their kids because she did ‘not grow up with any family whatsoever,’ the screen star admitted in October.

Speaking on Sunday Today with Willie Geist, the doting mother confessed: ‘I really did not take divorce well. I took it really hard.

‘I was, like, ”Oh, the ultimate promise I wanted to make with you and for you was to have this amazing family. And I found them. And there’s something not working that isn’t livable. How tragic is that?”’

And while the former child star said she was ‘scared to find love again,’ she has since joined a dating app – most likely the exclusive celebrity favourite, Raya.

‘It’s true. I got back on a dating app [while binge-watching Netflix’s] Bridgerton,’ Drew confessed on the January 15th episode of her syndicated daytime talk show.

‘I was like, ”I’m not dead, I’m not dead!” For me, that was a big step.’
