Nancy Juvonen is in the news today as she has recently become engaged to Saturday Night Live alum Jimmy Fallon. (You can see pictures of her with Jimmy below) He proposed to her last weekend at her family home in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire. You can see photos and a biography of Nancy here!
Nancy Juvonen was raised in California and Connecticut. She has one brother, Jim Juvonen. She would go to college at USC and study Sociology and Cooperative Education. She held a variety of odd jobs – working on a dude ranch in Wyoming, a private flight attendant, working at a mortgage brokerage in Washington, D.C., and eventually getting a job as an assistant to Clarence Clemons, the saxophone player for Bruce Springsteen’s “E Street Band”.
She would eventually meet Drew Barrymore in 1995 through her brother Jim, who was working on the set of “Mad Love”. Drew dared Nancy to move to L.A. and start a production company with her. They called it Flower Films. They would go on to produce such hits as “Never Been Kissed”, “50 First Dates”, “Fever Pitch”, “Music and Lyrics” and the “Charlie’s Angels” flicks. They currently are in pre-production for the movie “He’s Just Not That Into You” based on the book by Greg Behrendt. Drew Barrymore is set to star in the film as well.
