Drew Barrymore was born February 22, 1975, in Culver City, California. She is the descendant of legendary actors Lionel, Ethel and John Barrymore. The actress, producer and director first gained recognition when she was 6 for her breakout role in Steven Spielberg’s 1982 blockbuster E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial. While still a child, she went on to star in several more films, including Firestarter and Irreconcilable Differences; her struggles with drug and alcohol abuse began soon after. In 1990, Drew wrote an autobiography entitled Little Girl Lost. She eventually broke away from her child-star persona with movies such as Poison Ivy, Bad Girls, The Wedding Singer, Ever After and Boys on the Side. In 1995, Drew and Nancy Juvonen formed a production company called Flower Films, which has produced movies such as Never Been Kissed, Charlie’s Angels, 50 First Dates, Donnie Darko and He’s Just Not That into You. She won the 2009 Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Mini-Series for her performance in the made-for-TV movie Grey Gardens. Drew has been married and divorced twice. She is currently seeing actor Justin Long.
