12. Drew Barrymore and Tom Green – Married For 9 Months
When Drew Barrymore married fellow funny free-spirit Tom Green it raised a few eyebrows but the duo, who both have quirky personalities, seemed to genuinely enjoy each other’s company and appeared to be sure of their decision. Nine months later, they weren’t so sure anymore and they decided to split. They broke up on good terms though. Drew said of their break up, “Yes, it is true we have decided to part. I love Tom very much. He has always been a great friend and that won’t change.” Tom was similarly fond of his ex, saying, “Drew is a wonderful woman, I love her very much. I wish our marriage could have worked out; I wish her much happiness.” This, however, lasted longer than Drew Barrymore’s first marriage to bar-owner Jeremy Thomas when she was just 19 years old and had known him for a wildly brief six weeks. Their union lasted a whopping 39 days.Everett Collection
