The actress has been married and divorced three times – to Jeremy Thomas, Tom Green and Will Kopelman – and has said each of her splits were a "tragedy" for her personally.
“When I got divorced it was such a tragedy for me personally that I really failed as a human being,” she said, speaking to Jessica Simpson on her The Drew Barrymore Show.
And Jessica – who has also been through a divorce from her ex-husband Nick Lachey – said she had a “standard of what marriage was supposed to be”, which wasn’t met during her relationship with Nick.
“Failure in general, I feel like, as creative people and artists, we're such perfectionists and even growing up in the church and as a preacher’s daughter, I had a standard of what marriage was supposed to be.
"And, oh wow, it really wasn’t that within the first week. It was like ‘Whoa, okay so it’s not like that fairy tale’. But I got married really young,” said the singer – who is now married to Eric Johnson.
