Drew Barrymore, 37,  married her fiancee, Jewish art-dealer Will Kopelman, 34, on Saturday at a traditional wedding ceremony under a Chuppah at her estate in Montecito, California.

Kopelman is the son of Arie Kopelman, the former chief executive officer of Chanel – which helped dress the bride – and the rabbi who presided over the service (who is Kopelman’s rabbi) was flown in from New York City to officiate the ceremony.

Steven Spielberg, Scarlett Johansson, Reese Witherspoon, Cameron Diaz, Jimmy Fallon and Busy Phillips were among the guests in attendance.

The couple is also expecting their first child.

  • What a travesty.

  • What is the deal with the Saturday wedding. Since it is summer, the sun officailly set at 9:49pm. on that Saturday. What kind of Rabbi marries someone on Shabbat? Not only that, to a non-Jew? I gues this couple will do the whole Channukah/Christmas thing. Sounds like a marriage destined for early demise.

  • cres if she converts? Who marries people like this?How smart can she be if she hops into bed so fast, she doesn’t even take the time to use a contraceptive? She’s obviously stupid.
    Or, finding herself pregnant, decided she may as well marry the guy who got her that way. After all, he can’t be “too bad”..???
    What guy in his right mind would fool around with a woman like this, much less MARRY HER!…yuuuuuk!

    I wonder how long that marriage will last! She’ll be outa the house and back on the street in no time! Yuch! So he’ll pay for the kid and get visiting rights.

    (“But I LOVE HIM, MOM!!!” Yeahhhh….right!

    • Maybe this was the only way she could have a child legitimately.

      As for conversion, I agree with you.

      Either way, this Jew by name doesn’t get his “kadishl”.

      I wonder if the wedding was during the day or after Shabbat.

      Either way, it’s simply more Hollywood slutery.

  • SO, DID SHE OR WILL SHE CONVERT?

    Former NBA Star Tweets Article About Jewish Conspiracy to Control Global Media

    Retired NBA player Keyon Dooling tweeted a link on Wednesday to a wildly antisemitic article that accuses Jews of seizing control of the world’s media and using it to promote their own interests. The article, published by an obscure blog in April 2013, highlights six companies it claims are owned by Jews — such as Time Warner, Inc. and the Walt Disney Company – that allegedly “control 96 percent of the world’s media.”  The post includes allegations of “Jewish control” and says [...]

    JNS.org – When David Blatt was hired as head coach of the National Basketball Association’s Cleveland Cavaliers last June, he was not often recognized when he walked the streets of downtown Cleveland. What a difference a year makes. Now, Blatt can go few places without being recognized. For good reason. The Jewish coach has the Cavaliers in the mix to win the city of Cleveland’s first championship in a major sport since the Browns won the National Football League title in [...]

    JNS.org – For Daphna Krupp, her daily workout (excluding Shabbat) at the Jewish Community Center (JCC or “J”) of Greater Baltimore has become somewhat of a ritual. She not only attends fitness classes but also engages with the instructors and plugs the J’s social programs on her personal Facebook page. “It’s the gym and the environment,” says Krupp. “It’s a great social network.” Krupp, who lives in Pikesville, Md., is one of an estimated 1 million American Jewish members of more [...]
