Drew Barrymore is one of the most recognizable actresses in Hollywood. She has been a part of films for over three decades and her career has spanned genres from romantic comedies to horror movies and children’s films.
Born on February 22, 1975 in Culver City, California, Drew Blyth Barrymore was born into an acting dynasty that included her grandfather John Barrymore, great-uncle Lionel Barrymore and father John Drew Barrymore. Her mother Jaid was a former actress who became her manager when she began appearing in commercials at age 11 months. After starring in Steven Spielberg’s E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial (1982), Drew made appearances on television shows like Saturday Night Live (1985) before transitioning back to film with roles in Firestarter (1984) and Cat’s Eye (1985).
In 1989, when she was 14 years old, Drew produced the cult classic teen comedy Never Been Kissed which launched her production company Flower Films alongside Nancy Juvonen Jameson. Since then Flower Films has gone onto produce hit films such as 50 First Dates (2004), Music & Lyrics (2007), He’s Just Not That Into You (2009), Going the Distance (2010) and Blended (2014).
She also served as executive producer for two Netflix series Santa Clarita Diet and The End of the F***ing World which both have since become fan favorites due to their unique concepts filled with dark humor and heartwarming moments. Most recently she starred alongside Adam Sandler once again for their fourth collaboration Hubie Halloween (2020).
Aside from being one of Hollywood’s leading ladies, Drew is an active philanthropist involved with charities like UNICEF where she serves as ambassador since 2007. She also supports organizations such as Feeding America, Best Friends Animal Society, Stomp Out Bullying among many others. In addition to these causes she created The Beauty Project founded by Flower Films that encourages young women between ages 8-18 year old to pursue careers within beauty industry through workshops hosted by professionals throughout Los Angeles area.
Over thirty years after making her screen debut at six years old, it is clear that Drew still loves what she does while continuing to make strides within entertainment industry creating projects both behind and front camera alike proving why fans continue loving this multitalented star today more than ever before!
She has been in the entertainment industry since she was 11 months old and throughout her career she has starred in some of the most iconic films of our time such as E.T., Charlie’s Angels, 50 First Dates, Never Been Kissed and The Wedding Singer.
Born on February 22nd 1975 to John Drew Barrymore Jr. and Jaid Barrymore in Los Angeles California, Drew was raised solely by her mother due to her father’s drug addiction which caused him to be absent from their lives for large periods of time. As a result of this difficult upbringing Drew began drinking alcohol at age 9 and smoking marijuana at age 10 before being sent away to rehab at 13 years old where she spent 18 months receiving treatment for substance abuse disorder.
After completing rehab she slowly but surely worked hard to turn her life around with help from family members including Steven Spielberg who casted her in his movie E.T: The Extra-Terrestrial when she was 7 years old after seeing how determined she was to improve herself despite all that had happened in the past; an experience which changed the course of her life forever as it ultimately jumpstarted one of Hollywood’s most successful careers thus far!
Throughout her storied career Drew has won numerous awards including two Golden Globe Awards (one for Best Actress – Motion Picture Comedy or Musical) along with several nominations; however it is not just acting that defines who Drew is today -she also serves as an ambassador for UNICEF working towards improving children’s rights worldwide while helping those affected by natural disasters through donations made via social media campaigns & fundraising initiatives set up within different organisations like GlobalGiving UK amongst others -a clear indication that even though fame & fortune have come easily enough into play during certain points within life there are still many causes close enough to heart worth fighting for regardless if recognition comes later down line or not!
In addition, over recent times we have seen how much more invested into business side things too having become founder & CEO Flower Films production company back 1999 (which produced Donnie Darko among other titles); launching ‘Flower Beauty’ cosmetics brand 2014 releasing multiple products since then under same label; plus co-founding ‘Hello Sunshine’ media company alongside Chernin Entertainment 2016 striving create content female audiences can relate too across various digital platforms. All these achievements prove beyond doubt that no matter what obstacles were faced early days growing up there will always be ways to move forward positively whatever situation may arise so long as determination & courage remain intact during toughest moments.
Overall, it could said without hesitation that ‘Drew Barrymore” is a living example of what perseverance and dedication can bring about anyone willing to put the effort in required to make dreams a reality.
