The Charlie’s Angels star donned a yarmulke when she married art consultant Kopelman in a traditional Jewish ceremony last June (12) and now Barrymore reveals she’s thinking about formally becoming a member of his religion so little Olive, who was born in September (12), can be raised in a proper Jewish household.
During an appearance on U.S. chat show The View on Friday (25Jan13), she said, “He is a nice Jewish man from a nice Jewish family. I do the Seders (holiday feast), and we do Passover. I haven’t converted yet, (but) Olive will be raised traditionally. And we had a very traditional wedding ceremony with Rabbi Rubinstein and I did the ketubah (prenuptial agreement), and we wore the yarmulkes, we were under the chuppah (wedding canopy).
“I’m there. I love it. It’s a beautiful faith and I’m so honoured to be around it. It’s so family-oriented and beautiful and I learn so much and the stories are so beautiful. And it’s incredibly enlightening. I’m really happy.”
