LATEST: DREW BARRYMORE and TOM GREEN did almost tied the knot live on TV this weekend (18NOV00) - despite suspicions it was another prank by the pair.
The couple guest starred on SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE - and Green obtained the rings, the wedding licence and even wore a tux for what audiences thought was a skit after they had falsely claimed at the recent premiere of Barrymore's new movie CHARLIE'S ANGELS they had married in a secret ceremony - but in actuality was real.
According to sources five minutes before the ceremony was to take place, Drew pulled out opting instead for a more intimate ceremony in the future.
Guest waiting in the wings to see the pair get married were GWYNETH PALTROW, CAMERON DIAZ, TOM HANKS and RITA WILSON.
Green's manager Mr LAPIDES says, "Drew had second thoughts. He pretty much knows how to take care of business and that's what he did. "He had every intention of getting married, he was looking forward to it but doing it on TV might have been a bit much." (MB/WNV/CPT)
