Actress Drew Barrymore appeared on the TV show “The View” Friday where she spoke about her husband Will Kopelman, calling him a “nice Jewish man from a nice Jewish family.”

“I’m a shiksa. I do the seders, and we do Passover. I haven’t converted yet, [but] Olive will be raised traditionally.”

She added: “We had a very traditional wedding ceremony with Rabbi Rubenstein and I did the ketubah. We wore the yarmulkes and we did the chuppah.”

Barrymore revealed that couple plan on raising their daughter Olive as Jewish and that she hasn’t converted “yet.”

“It’s a beautiful faith and I love to be around it. It’s so family-oriented… The stories are so beautiful and it’s incredibly enlightening,” she said.
