Drew Barrymore comes from a long line of actors. She is the granddaughter of stage and movie actors John Barrymore, widely regarded as his generation's greatest actor, and the film actress Dolores Costello, whose father Maurice Costello was an extremely popular stage and screen actor. Barrymore is also the great-niece of Lionel Barrymore, Ethel Barrymore and Helene Costello. Her father, John Drew Barrymore, and half-brother, John Blyth, are also actors. "Drew" was the maiden name of her great-grandmother, Georgiana; "Blythe" was the original surname of the dynasty founded by her great-grandfather, Maurice Barrymore. Drew's mother is actress and model, Ildiko Jaid Mako.
Barrymore's career began at the age of 11 months, when she appeared in a dog food commercial. When she was bitten by her canine co-star, the producers feared litigation, though Barrymore merely laughed the incident off.
She shot to fame as a child actor when she co-starred in the 1982 Steven Spielberg film E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. At the age of 7, on November 20, 1982, Barrymore became the youngest ever guest host of the weekly TV program Saturday Night Live. She performed in a skit where she revealed that she had killed E.T.
In the wake of this sudden stardom, she endured a notoriously troubled childhood, drinking alcoholic beverages by the time she was 9, smoking marijuana at 10, and snorting cocaine at 12. Barrymore later described this early period of her life in her 1990 autobiography, Little Girl Lost.
Though overcoming her substance abuse problems by the time she entered adulthood, Barrymore maintained her "bad girl" image, and in fact leveraged her new found role as a sex symbol to stage a career comeback in the 1990s, playing a teenage seductress in Poison Ivy, and posing nude for the January 1995 issue of U.S. magazine Playboy.
Steven Spielberg, Barrymore's godfather, gave her a quilt for her 20th birthday with a note that read "Cover yourself up". Enclosed was a copy of her Playboy appearance, with the pictures altered by his art department so that she appeared fully clothed.
At that time she had also appeared nude in her last five movies. During a 1995 appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman, Barrymore shocked the normally unflappable host by climbing onto his desk and flashing her breasts at him (but with her back to the camera), as part of a dance for his birthday. She also modelled in a series of Guess? jeans advertisements during this time.
Barrymore has continued to be a highly bankable movie actress. She is especially adept at romantic comedies; popular examples of her work include The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates. Though her playful sex appeal has undoubtedly helped her remain in the media spotlight, she has also established a substantial career behind the scenes. She has produced several films, including the highly successful Charlie's Angels movie adaptation and its sequel.
She has also recently explored more dramatic roles in movies such as Riding in Cars with Boys, where she played a teenage mother in a failed marriage with the drug-addicted father, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, and the cult favorite Donnie Darko, of which she was also the executive producer. Barrymore has started to receive more notice both as a serious actress and a savvy Hollywood "player", though without losing her reputation as a sex symbol and (occasional) hellraiser.
Barrymore's career makes for colorful copy. In the words of Yahoo! Movies
Heir to a Hollywood dynasty, child star, prepubescent drug and alcohol abuser, teenage sexpot, and resurrected vessel of celluloid purity, Drew Barrymore is nothing if not the embodiment of the rise and fall of Hollywood fortunes, self-reinvention, and the healing powers of good PR.
More recently, Barrymore was the subject of an offbeat documentary, My Date with Drew (2005). In it, an aspiring filmmaker and lifelong Drew Barrymore fan uses his limited financial and social resources in an attempt to gain a date with Barrymore. Through word of mouth, the internet, and a six-degrees-of-separation style of communication with Barrymore and her associates, a date with Barrymore is eventually acquired. Barrymore proved to be a good sport on the date, bringing a video camera to the fan as a gift and finding humor in the events.
On February 3, 2004, she received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Barrymore was married to Welsh bartender turned bar owner, Jeremy Thomas, from March 20 to April 28, 1994, and to comedian Tom Green from July 7, 2001 to October 15, 2002. She is currently dating drummer Fabrizio Moretti of The Strokes.
Barrymore has also publicly declared herself to be bisexual, revealing that she had slept with many women as a teenager and is still interested in women sexually.
