Drew Blythe Barrymore was born on February 22, 1975. Parented by the famous Hollywood-royalty Barrymore family. She first began acting at the tender age of 11 months in a TV commercial. At 7, Drew was starring in box-office record-breaker E.T. (1982). The flip side of this child stardom was revealed when she dropped out of school at 14 and published her co-written autobiography, Little Girl Lost (1990).
Drinking at 9, dope-smoking at 10 and coke-snorting at 12 were some of the stops on Barrymore's descent. After a string of roles in little-seen movies, Drew played an amoral teen seductress in Poison Ivy (1992). The role brought her minor-icon status that was further cemented by a Guess add shot by Ellen Von Unwerth. It was a jeans ad campaign which highlighted her white trash sex appeal.
Barrymore tends to fare best in high-spirited, low-class projects like The Amy Fisher Story (tv movie, 1993), Guncrazy (1992), and the short-lived twenty-something soap 2000 Malibu Road (1992), rather than in mid-budget Hollywood fodder like Bad Girls (1994), Boys on the Side (1995), and Mad Love (1995).
Less than two months after her March 1994 marriage to an LA bar owner, Drew filed for divorce; she subsequently became involved with Hole guitarist Eric Erlandson, whose praises she invariably sang on her many TV talk show appearances. After many nude public appearances, including the David Letterman, and the China Club, Drew has finally begun to settle down. She has begun to throw off her bad girl attitude and settle for a more womanly one. Drew is now a spokesperson, and actress for a women's condom commercial which aired on MTV.
Drew's latest moves in showbiz, include her excellent performance in Wes Craven's "Scream"(1996), her role in Woody Allen's "Everyone Says I Love You"(1996), and "The Wedding Singer"(1997). In 1996. on a film shoot, Drew met her latest love, Luke Wilson, whom she broke up with recently(1999).
Drew is now enjoying her life. She played a Cinderella with Girl Power in the movie "Ever After"(1998), she played a pregnant fast-food worker in "Home Fries"(1998), and played Luke Wilson's fiance in the movie "Best Men" (1998).
Recently her first produced movie got released in the theaters, (April 9, 1999), "Never Been Kissed." "Never Been Kissed" is her company, 'Flower Films', first released movie. Her partner in 'Flower Films' is Nancy Jevonen. Drew's next movie from 'Flower Films' is "Charlie's Angels".
