American actor and producer. His real name is Drew Blyth Barrymore. United Nations iarrmore has followed a bumpy course in his film career, which he started at a very young age, and became an actor known to the whole world with the movie ET. The actor, who is especially worthy of romantic comedies, has garnered praise for Music and Lyrics, in which he co-starred with Hugh Grant. Steven Spielberg is Barrymore’s spiritual grandfather.
He was born on February 22, 1975, to John Drew Barrymore and Jaid Barrymore, both actors, in Culver City, California, United States. Drew has three siblings, John Blyth Barrymore, Blyth Dolores Barrymore, and Brahma (Jessica) Blyth Barrymore, whose parents divorced soon after he was born. Coming from an artistic family, Barrymore’s career began when he was a baby. Despite being bitten by a dog when he auditioned for a dog food commercial at 11 months old, little Drew, who started laughing contrary to the expectations of the producers, landed his first role. At the age of 3, he met the audience in the TV series Suddenly Love.
The actress, who made her debut in front of the camera in 1980 with the movie Altered States, would be recognized by the world a year later with Steven Spielberg’s movie ET the Extra-Terrestrial.
He was seven years old when he performed on Saturday Night Live as the youngest presenter of all time. Barrymore, who was nominated for the Best Supporting Actress award in the Golden Globe for her performance in 1984’s Irreconcilable Differences, also started using drugs and alcohol as she entered the glittering world of cinema at a very young age. The actress, who found herself in front of the cameras before she could live her childhood, smoked her first cigarette when she was only 9 years old, and started using marijuana and cocaine at the age of 13. Barrymore would describe that process and her early teenage years in her 1990 autobiography, Little Girl Lost.
Negative comments about Drew’s bad girl image and film career were reinforced with Poison Ivy, where she portrays a teen who is adept at seducing men. The movie was a huge sales success when it hit the shelves as VHS in 1992. After posing nude for the January 1995 issue of Playboy, his adoptive grandfather, Steven Spielberg, gifted Barrymore a quilt for his 20th birthday and attached the following note:
Shut yourself down!
However, Barrymore did not hesitate to show his nudity in the films he shot. When she got on Letterman’s table and opened her breasts on The Late Show with David Letterman, presented by the famous talk show producer David Letterman and watched by millions, the whole of America was talking about him. Barrymore also appeared in commercials for Guess Jeans at that time.
Barrymore, who had a short but remarkable role in Wes Craven’s film “Scream” in 1996, also appeared in Woody Allen’s production of “Everyone Says I Love You” in the same year. These two films were a sign that Drew was starting to get smarter and was an opportunity for his career to rise again.
The actress, who has appeared in mainly romantic comedies including Wishful Thinking Best Men (1997), The Wedding Singer (1998), Ever After (1998), Home Fries (1998), Never Been Kissed (1999) and Skipped Parts (2000), he was in a working tempo, and his films also supported his effort to destroy his bad image off stage and appear as a cute and funny person.
Playing one of Charlie’s three angels with Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu in “Charlie’s Angels” in 2000, Barrymore solidified his career by starring in the films “Skipped Parts”, “So Love Returns” and “Donnie Darko” in the same year.
After a brief engagement to Jamie Walters, the actress married Tom Green in a ceremony in Malibu in July 2001.
After starring in 2007’s Lucky You, Barrymore is voiced in South of the Border, which is still in filming.
