About Drew Barrymore
From her breakthrough appearance as Gertie in E.T. through a string of romantic comedy classics like Never Been Kissed and The Wedding Singer to her critically lauded performance in Grey Gardens, she has matured on camera.
She has been a mainstay in Hollywood since the 1980s and is equally infamous and well-known. But in a world of Prada and plastic, this bad girl who grew up to be decent is a breath of fresh air. A generation of burnt-out former child stars now have faith that there is life outside of drugs and B-grade thrillers thanks to Drew Barrymore. Not many of them, though, can claim Steven Spielberg as their godfather.
Talent from Beyond the Earth
She got her big break in a “out of this world” movie with a friendly alien after being born into a long history of Hollywood family nobility. Drew, who was seven years old at the time, played Gertie in Steven Spielberg’s revolutionary film E.T. Her future in Hollywood was decided at that point. She received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her performance as a young girl attempting to divorce her unreliable parents in the movie Irreconcilable Differences, which was released two years later.
But there was more than a little temptation that came with abrupt and young success. Her mother began taking her to clubs like the infamous Studio 54 when she was a little child. Perhaps ten to fifteen years sooner than the norm, Drew seemed to start an experimental phase. She entered rehab when she was 13 years old.
She made an attempt at suicide when she was 14 and spent some time in treatment again before turning 16 and penning her biography, Lost Little Girl. The following year, she requested emancipation from her parents in an absurd instance of life imitating art.
Shedding Her Image And Clothes
Her once-promising career began to suffer due to her wild child reputation, and in the early 1990s, she appeared in B-grade and made-for-TV films including Poison Ivy, Guncrazy, and Doppelganger. Even though she was nominated for another Golden Globe for her performance in Guncrazy, the young starlet’s career didn’t really take off until the mid-1990s.
She posed naked for Playboy in 1995, much to the chagrin of her godfather Steven Spielberg. He sent her a blanket and a card saying, “Cover yourself up!” for her 21st birthday. Additionally, he sent a copy of the offending magazine that had her photographs digitally edited to make them appear as though she was dressed. “Bad Drew” came to an end at that point. She began to take on more PG roles, including those with Edward Norton, with whom she had a romantic relationship, in Everyone Says I Love You, The Wedding Singer, Ever After, and Home Fries. She took a hiatus to film a highly memorable cameo in the horror film Scream.
Drew established her own production company, Flower Films, in 1995. She is no stranger to her own star power. Films including Never Been Kissed, Charlie’s Angels, 50 First Dates, Fever Pitch, and He’s Just Not That Into You were later produced by her firm.
She solidified her Hollywood reputation in the new millennium with a succession of popular romantic comedies. She won a Golden Globe for Best Actress in 2009 for her emotional turn in the HBO film Grey Gardens.
With her picture Whip It that year, she added director to her resume in addition to acting and producing.
Simple, breezy, and lovely
In addition to countless lesbian allegations from when she was younger and more irresponsible, Drew’s acting career has not been without its fair share of steamy encounters. Drew, who appears to be infamous for her impetuous attitude to dating, was twice married and four times engaged. She barely made it beyond the one-month mark after her unexpected marriage to British bartender Jeremy Thomas. She shocked her supporters when she wed actor and comedian Tom Green in 2001. A year later, they separated.
She began dating The Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti following her second divorce. They were together for five years, but in the beginning of 2007, they decided to call it quits amicably. She met actor Justin Long that year while filming He’s Just Not That Into You, and the two had a long-running on-and-off relationship.
Along the way, she also found time to host SNL five times, serve as the face of Gucci and CoverGirl, and be recognized as one of the most paid leading ladies in Hollywood. The actress who was born into her career has had a difficult road and nearly lost everything, but despite having an extraordinary career, she is the one we would most like to name our best friend.
“It wasn’t my choice to be an open book, but when people found out what my life was like when I was 14 or 15, I didn’t deny it. I think the more imperfect you are, the more human you are.”
