Nancy Juvonen (born May 18, 1967) is an American film producer.[1] She and Drew Barrymore own the production company Flower Films.

Early life[edit]

Juvonen is of Finnish ancestry. She was born and raised in Marin County, California, and Connecticut. Her brother is Jim Juvonen.

Career[edit]

Juvonen graduated from the University of Southern California with a degree in sociology and cooperative education.[2] After graduation she worked odd jobs. She spent time at a dude ranch in Wyoming, worked as a private flight attendant, even worked for an artist trying to erase homelessness. Eventually Ms. Juvonen got her big break as an assistant to "The Big Man" Clemons, a member of Bruce Springsteen's "E Street Band[3] .[4]

In 1993 she met Drew Barrymore through her brother Jim, a writer/producer who was working on the set of Mad Love.[1] In addition to producing the film, she appeared in an uncredited role as a flight attendant in Donnie Darko (2001). Barrymore dared, even implored Juvonen to move to Los Angeles and start a company with her; thus Flower Films was born.[5]

Personal life[edit]

Barrymore introduced Nancy to comedian/talk-show host Jimmy Fallon in 2005 while the three filmed Fever Pitch. They became engaged in August 2007 and married on December 22, 2007 on the Caribbean Necker Island.[6][7] Juvonen and Fallon have a daughter born in 2013 via gestational carrier.[8][9]
