Drew Barrymore Reunites With ‘Boys On The Side’ Co-Star Whoopi Goldberg Over 25 Years Later

Decades after working together, Drew Barrymore’s bond with Whoopi Goldberg is still going strong. The ‘Boys On The Side’ costars reunited on Drew’s show to talk about dating, the holidays, and more.

“How it’s started vs. How it’s going!” Drew Barrymore captioned the photos she posted to her Instagram on Tuesday (Dec. 7), showing a still of her alongside Whoopi Goldberg from the film Boys on The Side and a photo taken from that day’s episode of The Drew Barrymore Show. Drew, 46, and Whoopi, 66, worked together on the 1995 comedy-drama, but as Drew said on the show, their friendship started long before that. “I have known Whoopi since I was eight years old,” said Drew. “We met on the set of The Color Purple.” “Yes, we did,” said Whoopi. Drew was visiting the film’s director, Steven Spielberg, met Whoopi, and a lifelong friendship was formed.

“Well, a lot of your life,” corrected Whoopi, who said her daughter, Alex Martin, is roughly Drew’s age. The two discussed how their paths were connected – especially when Whoopi performed her “Black E.T.” stand-up bit for Steven, the actual director of E.T. (which starred a young Drew Barrymore.) Despite all the voices in Whoopi’s head telling her not to perform the bit, she did, and Steven “laughed and fell on the floor.”

Drew brought up Boys On The Side – “It still holds up,” said Whoopi, “It’s a sweet movie” – and Drew said that she had the best time filming the movie with Whoopi and Mart-Louise Parker. She also spoke about how the film’s director, the late Herbert Ross, was “bragging” about this new actor he found. “[He kept] saying, ‘you have to check this guy out. I found him. I discovered him. He’s been in like, one or two movies. And it’s Matthew McConaughey!” “Who knew?” said Whoopi.

During the visit, Drew brought up how she’s sworn off dating. She and her third husband, Will Kopelman, called it quits in 2016. “I’m on a dating app, and sometimes I’ll swipe by, and this 35-year-old guy will run by. I’m 46, and I’m like I already have two children, I don’t need another,” she said, referring to her daughters, Olive, 9, and Frankie, 7. Drew brought up the age difference, and Whoopi noted that it “cannot be five years.”

“You cannot make the distance five years,” continued Whoopi (h/t ET Canada). “You can’t because if they are five years younger than you, there’s a whole section of time that’s gone that makes it difficult. I once had a partner who said to me once, ‘I did not know Paul McCartney had a band other than Wings.’ He was young. And I said, ‘Umm, so you don’t know much about The Beatles?’ and then he said it, ‘Who are The Beatles?’ And that’s too young.”

Hugh Hefner’s Wives: Everything To Know About His 3 Marriages

Published

on

Hugh Hefner

The late Playboy founder was known for having multiple girlfriends at the same time, but he only married three loves in his life. Find out all about the women who got Hugh to say, ‘I do.’

The late Hugh Hefner was nearly as famous for his love life as he was for founding the groundbreaking Playboy enterprise. After first publishing the men’s entertainment magazine in 1953, he would go on to open clubs, casinos and hotels with the iconic name and logo — but the women on his arm were always just as newsworthy.

From dating models to actresses to his very own Playboy centerfolds, Hugh was soon recognized for having multiple live-in girlfriends at the Playboy Mansion. Perhaps the most famous of these paramours were the stars of the reality show Girls Next Door: Holly Madison, Bridget Marquardt and Kendra Wilkinson. Hugh never married any of these women, though.

With a spotlight being shone on Hugh’s organization in the upcoming 10-part docuseries Secrets of Playboy on A&E, fans have a renewed interest in the magazine mogul’s married life. Keep reading to find out all there is to know about the only three women who got Hugh to put a ring on their finger!

Mildred Williams

Hugh met his college sweetheart, Mildred Williams, at Northwestern University. The pair remained a couple while Hugh served in the army from 1944 to 1946, according to Insider. When he returned home, Mildred admitted to Hugh she had carried on an affair while he was away at war. “I had literally saved myself for my wife, but after we had sex she told me that she’d had an affair,” Hugh told Daily Mail in 2007. “That was the most devastating moment in my life.”

Despite the infidelity, Hugh and Mildred married anyway in 1949. In Hugh’s E! True Hollywood Story from 2006, it was claimed that Mildred allowed Hugh to have sex with other women during their marriage to lessen her guilt. The pair would welcome daughter Christie in 1952 and son David in 1955. Christie would go on to be the Playboy Enterprises Chairman and CEO for 20 years until she stepped down in 2008. After a decade together, Hugh and Mildred split in 1959.

Kimberley Conrad

After dating several high-profile women for a few decades, Hugh decided to settle down once again with 1989’s Playmate of the Year Kimberly Conrad. Although there was a 36-year age difference between the two, the couple married in 1989 and welcomed son Marston in 1990 and son Cooper in 1991. The union reportedly made the Playboy Mansion a more family-friendly environment.

Hugh and Kimberly separated in 1998 but didn’t officially divorce until 11 years later in 2010, as Kimberly remained focused on co-parenting. “I would’ve been happy to divorce her when we separated, but she wanted to remain married for our boys,” Hugh told People in 2009. In 2017 at the age of 55, Kimberly recreated her Playboy cover alongside other notable vets.

Crystal Harris

In January 2019, Hugh began dating Crystal Harris after Holly called it quits as his “number one girlfriend.” Hugh proposed to Crystal in 2010. However, in June 2011, just five days before their wedding, she ended the engagement. After reconciling, they married on New Year’s Eve in 2012. “Crystal and I married on New Year’s Eve in the Mansion with [younger brother] Keith as my Best Man,” Hefner tweeted the day of the wedding. “Love that girl!”

Although there were skeptics of Crystal’s intentions considering the 60-year age gap, the former model remained by Hugh’s side as his health was failing. When he died in September 2017 at the age of 91, Crystal was reportedly completely devastated by the news.  “I am heartbroken. I am still in disbelief,” she said in a statement at the time. “He is in the place he was always certain he wanted to spend eternity. He was an American hero. A pioneer. A kind and humble soul who opened his life and home to the world.”
