Just four months after announcing their split, actress Drew Barrymore has officially filed for divorce from her husband Will Kopleman.


The 41-year-old reportedly filed papers on Friday, according to the New York Daily News.


The E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial actress and 39-year-old Will got together in 2011 before tying the knot a year later; the divorce petition is reportedly uncontested.



The couple have two daughters together: Olive, three, and Frankies, two, and at the time of their separation they vowed to remain a family for the sake of their girls, saying they were their “first priority”.


Issuing a joint statement via People magazine in the spring of this year, Drew and Will said: “Sadly our family is separating legally, although we do not feel this takes away from us being a family.


“Divorce might make one feel like a failure, but eventually you start to find grace in the idea that life goes on.”



Drew, who has been married three times, previously told Chelsea Handler that she feels like a failure when she gets divorced.


"When you break up with somebody, you're like, 'Yeah, that didn't work,' [but] when you get divorced you're like, 'I'm the biggest failure. This is the biggest failure,” she honestly said.


“It's so shameful and hard to actually go through that, even privately."
