Did anyone else feel a wave of 90s nostalgia looking at this photo? Just us?

Actor and musician James "Jamie" Walters took commitment with Drew one step further and got her name tattooed on his arm (she reciprocated). Jamie was Drew's second fiancé.

Maybe they should've waited until after the wedding to get the tats. Drew and Jamie never made it that far.

What is he pointing at though?

Speaking of Charlies Angels, Drew actually met her next husband, comedian Tom Green, on set during filming. They tied the knot in July 2001. It's a testament to Drew's character that Tom had nothing but kind words to say about Drew when he filed for divorce in December 2021.
