Green Files to Divorce Barrymore

12/17/2001 at 01:05 AM EST

Comedian Tom Green has filed for divorce from actress Drew Barrymore after less than a year of marriage, Green's spokeswoman Ann Gurrola confirmed to Green, who filed the papers Monday, said in a statement: "Drew is a wonderful woman. I love her very much. I wish our marriage could have worked out. I wish her much happiness." The marriage is the second for Barrymore, 26, who was married to bar owner Jeremy Thomas for less than a month in 1994. Barrymore's relationship with Green, 30, has not been without incident: She was with him as he battled testicular cancer last year, and the couple escaped without injury when a fire badly damaged her Hollywood Hills home earlier this year, according to Reuters. Green became a household name with his outrageous MTV program "The Tom Green Show." Barrymore, who became famous as a young child in high-profile movies such as "E.T.," battled alcohol and drug abuse as a youngster. She came back into the Hollywood fold in the early 1990s, and has since won popular appeal for her work in films such as "Boys on the Side," "The Wedding Singer" and "Charlie's Angels."
