Drew Barrymore is an American actress and film producer. She is the youngest member of the Barrymore family of American actors. She first appeared in a film when she was eleven months old. Barrymore made her screen debut in Altered States in 1980. Afterwards, she starred in her breakout role in E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial.

Following a turbulent childhood which was marked by drug and alcohol abuse and two stints in rehab, Barrymore wrote the 1990 autobiography, Little Girl Lost.

In 1995, she and partner Nancy Juvonen formed the production company Flower Films, with its first production the 1999 Barrymore film Never Been Kissed. Flower Films has gone on to produce the Barrymore vehicle films Charlie's Angels, 50 First Dates, and Music and Lyrics, as well as the cult film Donnie Darko. Barrymore's more recent projects include He's Just Not That into You, Beverly Hills Chihuahua, and Everybody's Fine. A recipient of a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Barrymore appeared on the cover of the 2007 People magazine's 100 Most Beautiful issue.

Barrymore was named Ambassador Against Hunger for the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP). Since then, she has donated over $1 million to the program. In 2007, she became both CoverGirl's newest model and spokeswoman for the cosmetic and the face for Gucci's newest jewelry line.

Love her since ET days. She may have problems in real life but that makes her more human than the awesome little girl she once was.

As twisted and turbulent as her private life has been, I have to admit that Drew Barrymore is a great actress. She plays the innocent so well on the screen, it's hard to believe what she's been through in real life!

One of the most talented child actresses of all time. As she grew into adulthood, she was involved in some scandals and some of them affect her professional life. Yet, she does manage to hold a special place in the hearts of many of her audiences. It'll be wonderful and interesting to see how she'll perform as she grows into old age later in life...
