Drew Barrymore: Will Kopelman slips 4-carat ring on her finger

Has someone finally tamed Drew Barrymore's wild heart?

To be fair, the former wild child has maintained a hippie-fringed grace for quite some time since her David Letterman-flashing days, but she's certainly had her ups and downs in love. A major up: She's engaged to art world player Will Kopelman.

Consultant Kopelman, the son of former Chanel U.S. honcho Arie Kopelman, has been taking up with the "Charlie's Angels" beauty since last award season.

Will popped the question in Sun Valley, Idaho, with quite a rock according to People: a radiant-cut stunner weighing in at almost 4 carats. 

It's an impressive piece of jewelry and we certainly hope it'll be the bling that counts. Barrymore loves herself an engagement. Her first came at the ripe old age of 16, when she was set to wed Leland Hayward, a Hollywood producer's grandson.

Then it was actor Jamie Walters, to whom she was betrothed for a year, followed by an actual marriage to English barkeep Jeremy Thomas in 1994. After splitting with Thomas, she wed comedian Tom Green in 2001; they divorced five months later. 

Barrymore has also been romantically linked to the Strokes' drummer Fabrizio Moretti and of course actor Justin Long (no engagement there). The Ministry thinks Kopelman is a catch.
