Drew is the daughter of actor John Drew Barrymore Jr. and Ildiko Jaid Barrymore - her great-grandparents Maurice Barrymore and Georgiana Drew and grandparents John Barrymore and Dolores Costello were also actors.

The star made her big-screen debut at the age of 5 in Ken Russell's Altered States.

But of course, her most famous role came 2 years later in 1982's  E.T.: The Extraterrestrial.

After working on the movie, she plummeted into the spotlight.

Shortly after the movie hit screens, Drew appeared on NBC's The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and even became Saturday Night Live's youngest host.

But things quickly started to derail for the child star.

Her mom soon began taking her to nightclubs, and it was at Studio 54 and the China Club that Drew started to develop substance abuse issues... before she was even a teenager.

At just thirteen...

Drew was placed in a rehab center, later writing about the experience in her autobiography, Little Girl Lost.

Drew quickly earned the reputation of being a troubled wild child.

Her nightlife and constant partying became a popular headline generator for the media.

The actress continued to struggle with her mental health - spending eighteen months in a mental health facility.

But sadly, aged fourteen, she tried to take her own life, which landed her back in rehab, followed by a 3-month stay with singer David Crosby and his wife. "She needed to be around some people that were committed to sobriety," Crosby said.

That same year, Drew's petition for emancipation was successful.

And saw her move into her own apartment aged fifteen.

Due to her reputation, Drew struggled to find work.

Film projects were slow to materialize, though, she did make some minor films, including Irreconcilable DifferencesFirestarter, and Cat's Eye.

In the '90s, she began starring in a series of films that many say exploited her wild-child image.

Including the likes of Poison Ivy (1992), Guncrazy (1992), and The Amy Fisher Story (1993).

Through all this, she continued to make headlines for her controversial behavior.

The star posed nude for spreads in Playboy and Andy Warhol's Interview, and exposed herself on live TV to a shocked David Letterman during his Late Night show birthday celebration.

But, Drew's luck began to change in 1995.

That year, the star co-founded a production company, Flower Films - which would go on to produce several big hits. On top of that, she gave a solid performance in the movie Boys on the Side, co-starring with Whoopi Goldberg, and Mary-Louise Parker.

Over the next few years, Drew proved her strength as a rom-com lead.


The actress earned praise when she co-starred in the popular comedy The Wedding Singer alongside Adam Sandler and in Ever After with Anjelica Huston.

The following year, Drew also earned her first credit as an executive producer with the comedy Never Been Kissed, in which she also starred.

The actress went from strength to strength.

There is no doubt that Drew has managed to completely turn her life around.

And it's safe to say, fans are impressed...

"I'm going to put this on the upper waterline and it's going to open my eye to match this one."

She then proceeds to lift up her eyelid and apply the liner to her upper waterline.
