Will grew up with his sister Jill, who would become involved in the entertainment industry as well, mainly as a writer.
After matriculating from high school, he enrolled into Boston University to complete a bachelor’s degree. He was a fan of various films since he was young, and particularly enjoyed Steven Spielberg movies, and the works of David Lynch and Woody Allen. He made his acting debut in 2000 in the film “Intern”, which focuses on the story of an underappreciated intern in a magazine company, who must learn to deal with numerous challenges as she tries to get the attention of an art director who she is interested in.

During her career, she’s received numerous accolades including a Golden Globe Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, and a BAFTA nomination. Despite a troubled childhood marked by alcohol and drug abuse, she bounced back to produce numerous high profile films, with some she worked on including “Scream” and “The Wedding Singer”, which became the first among several projects on which she would work with Adam Sandler.
Other high profile projects she’s worked on include “Charlie’s Angels”, “Donnie Darko”, “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind”, “50 First Dates”, and “Blended”.

Marriage and DivorceKopelman and Barrymore started a relationship in 2010, having already been friends for around four years. Initially it didn’t last long, however, they got back together the following year, and in December 2011 became engaged in Sun Valley, Idaho, leading to their marriage six months later. The marriage was held in Drew’s home in Montecito, California, while she was pregnant with the couple’s first child. Will is her third husband, as she was previously married to Jeremy Thomas which only lasted for a month, and to Tom Green which lasted for five months.
The couple would have two daughters, and the family resided at the Upper East Side of New York City. However, in 2016 the couple released a statement confirming that they had separated and were intending on a divorce, which was filed during the middle of the year and finalized a month later. No details have been shared as to why their relationship ended.
Aftermath and Personal Life
The two subsequently went on their separate paths, and Will would transition from acting to consulting, as he realized that he was not making any ground in terms of an acting career. He now has high profile clients including Lake Bell, Robert Pattinson and Zooey Deschanel.
Aside from Drew, he is known to have been in relationships with actresses Lara Flynn Boyle and Sarah Roemer. During his free time, he enjoys going to the shooting range – according to him, his interest in guns began while watching the show “Miami Vice” when he was younger, but his grandfather is a World War II veteran. Will also enjoys snowboarding during his free time.
