Though Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman have appeared amicable since announcing their divorce, the actress surprisingly skipped over any mention of her estranged husband’s name during a reading of her memoir earlier this week.
According to Page Six, the 41-year-old star read aloud a nearly 17-page chapter from her book, Wildflower — which previously hit stores in October 2015 — as part of her keynote speech at the New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children’s spring luncheon in NYC on Tuesday, April 12.

In the chapter — which chronicled Drew’s past experience building a school in rural Africa — the mom-of-two recalled visiting her Barrymore Learning Academy in Kenya with Will shortly after they began dating in early 2011.
“About two years later, when I started dating my husband, Will, who was just my boyfriend at the time, I got a call that the school was ready to be visited. . . I had never taken anyone with me on these trips. They were very solo for me and I had yet to share any aspect of this with anyone. But I took a risk and asked Will if he would like to go with me and see it. He said an absolute yes, and off we went,” she wrote.

But, Drew reportedly omitted any mention of Will — whom she later married in June 2012 — during her New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children presentation, leading many to believe there may be divorce drama between the two after all.
The former couple — who are parents to two daughters, Olive, 3, and Frankie, 23 months — announced their separation after nearly four years of marriage on April 2.
