Green and Barrymore got engaged in July 2000 before tying the knot a year later then splitting in December 2001.
She told Fallon, “There were no questions prepared for that. I had an offline conversation with him because we didn’t want it to be some bougie Hollywood moment, like, ‘Let’s reconnect in front of the cameras.’ The thing I love about Tom is he is one of the first people to put a camera on his life, when it was a giant, fat camcorder and there were no easy phones available.
His stuff was on VHS, I remember watching his VHS tapes. It’s what gave me the idea, because I just said, ‘Gosh, would you just want to reconnect? It’s been a long time and I would just love to honour what you did.
You broke down all these doors, you were a pioneer. And I would love to talk about it and have it be an excuse for us to say hello.’ That’s the tone. I sent him a video and then he sent me one back. And immediately, he made me laugh and that’s my kryptonite, laughter.”
