true child of Hollywood - a member of a celebrity dynasty - Drew
Barrymore has fascinated the world since her toddler days. She
is currently one of the most known, recognized and loved celebrities
in the world, but she had a wild ride getting there.
Drew was first introduced to the world in Steven Spielbergs
E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial. The movie remains one of the most
successful and often-remembered films in cinematic history, and
Drews adorable little Gertie is a large part of what made
it so memorable. Barrymore utterly charmed audiences everywhere,
and she was a huge celebrity at the tender age of seven. It was
only later that we would learn that her life at that time was
anything but charming... Drew was partying and abusing drugs and
alcohol at an age when most girls were still playing with Barbies.
Drews parents are both actors. Her mother is Ildiko Jaid,
and her father is John Drew Barrymore, son of John Barrymore.
Her godfather is Steven Spielberg. The family is legendary in
Hollywood - both for their movies and for their scandals. Drew
was a pure product of her environment.
Drew soon had a reputation, not just because of drug and alcohol
problems, but also for having a very sexual nature. She posed
in Playboy several times and once flashed David Letterman on national
television as a birthday present. Movies like Poison Ivy reflected
her offscreen personality.
The early 90s saw Drew settle down somewhat. She cleaned herself
up and for the first time exhibited control over her life. She
was able to turn her past problems to her advantage, playing with
and manipulating her image. Her sexy roles continued, but she
also introduced a whole new sweet and vulnerable side of herself
(one which now seems to predominate).
It is often hard to see the old Drew in the new, but without all
the trials and hardships, she would not be the delightful and
fascinating person she is today. She has proven herself time after
time as a box office draw and shes one of the most modest
megastars on the scene today.
Films like Never Been Kissed and Ever After have shown the world
just what she is capable of. She is now a spokeswoman for human
and animal rights and a devout vegan. All in all, she is a picture
of contentment, and no one would argue that she doesnt deserve
