Biography for Drew Barrymore

Drew Blyth Barrymore (born Feb. 22, 1975 (44 years ago)) is an American actress and movie producer. She is the youngest member of the Barrymore family of American actors. She first appeared in an advertisement when she was eleven months old. Barrymore made her movie debut in Altered States in 1980 (39 years ago). Afterwards, she starred in her breakout role in E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. She quickly became one of Hollywood's most recognized child actresses, going on to establish herself in mainly comic roles.

Following a turbulent childhood which was marked by drug and alcohol abuse and two stints in rehab, Barrymore wrote the 1990 (29 years ago) autobiography, Little Girl Lost. She successfully made the transition from child star to adult actress with a number of movies including the unsuccessful Poison Ivy, Bad Girls, Boys on the Side, and Everyone Says I Love You. Subsequently, she established herself in romantic comedies such as The Wedding Singer and starred in the drama movie Lucky You opposite Eric Bana.

In 1995 (24 years ago), she and partner Nancy Juvonen formed the production company Flower Films, with its first production the 1999 (20 years ago) Barrymore movie Never Been Kissed. Flower movies has gone on to produce the Barrymore vehicle movies Charlie's Angels, 50 First Dates, and Music and Lyrics, as well as the cult movie 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 (12 years ago) 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 (12 years ago), she became both CoverGirl's newest model and spokeswoman for the cosmetic and the face for Gucci's newest jewelry line.

Early years

Barrymore was born in Culver City, California, the daughter of American actor John Drew Barrymore and Ildikó Jaid Barrymore (née Makó), an aspiring actress born in a Displaced Persons camp in Brannenburg, West Germany to Hungarian World War II refugees. She is of Irish descent on her father's side through an ancestor, actor Maurice Costello. Her parents divorced after she was born. She has a half-brother John Blyth Barrymore, also an actor, and two half-sisters, Blyth Dolores Barrymore and Brahma (Jessica) Blyth Barrymore.

Barrymore was born into the acting profession: her great-grandparents Maurice Barrymore and Georgie Drew Barrymore, Maurice Costello and Mae Costello (née Altschuk) and her grandparents John Barrymore and Dolores Costello were all actors; John Barrymore was arguably the most acclaimed actor of his generation. She is the grandniece of Lionel Barrymore, Ethel Barrymore and Helene Costello, the great-great-granddaughter of John Drew and actress Louisa Lane Drew, and the great grandniece of silent movie actor/writer/director Sidney Drew. She is also the god-daughter of director Steven Spielberg, and Sophia Loren.

Her first name, Drew, was the maiden name of her paternal great-grandmother, Georgie Drew Barrymore; her middle name, Blyth, was the original surname of the dynasty founded by her great-grandfather, Maurice Barrymore.

Personal life

In 1991 (28 years ago), at the age of 16, Barrymore became engaged to Leland Hayward, grandson of Hollywood producer Leland Hayward. However after a few months, this engagement was called off. Soon afterward, Barrymore was engaged to and lived with musician/actor Jamie Walters in 1992-93.

She was married to Welsh bartender turned bar owner Jeremy Thomas from Mar. 20 to Apr. 28, 1994 (25 years ago). Her second marriage was to comedian Tom Green from Jul. 7, 2001 (18 years ago) to Oct. 15, 2002 (17 years ago). Green filed for divorce in dec. 2001 (18 years ago). In 2002 (17 years ago), Barrymore began dating Strokes' drummer Fabrizio Moretti, soon after they met at a concert. Their five year relationship, however, ended on Jan. 10, 2007 (12 years ago). She most recently dated Justin Long, however, they confirmed their split in Jul. 2008 (11 years ago). Although the two remain split up, Us Weekly reports that they have signed on to co-star in the upcoming movie Going the Distance.

In the 1990 (29 years ago) Barrymore was frequently described as bisexual, although she said in a 1997 (22 years ago) interview that she hadn't "been with a woman in about two years." In 2004 (15 years ago), she was quoted as saying "A woman and a woman together are beautiful, just as a man and a woman together are beautiful. Being with a woman is like exploring your own body, but through someone else. When I was younger I used to go with lots of women. Totally. I love it". In Mar. 2007 (12 years ago), former magazine editor Jane Pratt claimed on her Sirius Satellite Radio show that she had a romance with Barrymore in the mid-nineties.

Barrymore was formerly a vegetarian, but has since begun to eat meat.
