About Drew Barrymore (1975 – )
Adding depth to the acting dynasty known as "The Barrymores" (John, Ethel, and Lionel), Drew Blyth Barrymore was born on February 22, 1975, in Culver City, California. She began her career as a young girl, starring in the Steven Spielberg production of "ET: Extra Terrestrial" in 1992.
At the tender age of seven, Drew was the youngest person ever selected to host "Saturday Night Live". She wound up being the host six times over the run of the show.
Drew has co-starred with Adam Sandler in thre films: THE WEDDING SINGER, 50 DATES AND BLENDED;(2014).
In 2010, Drew won a GOLDEN GLOBE for Best Performance by an Actress in a Mini-Series, for GREY GARDENS.
Her lineage precedes her. She is the daughter of John and Jaid Barrymore. What's more, she is the granddaughter of John Barrymore and Dolores Costello (father's side) and the great-granddaughter of silent film protégé Maurice and Mae Costello, as well as the god-daughter of Steven Spielberg.
Since her Hollywood debut as a child, Drew has found her way through a slew of drugs, paparazzi, and film credentials that have allowed Drew to establish herself as a self-made actress who simply succeeded via her talent.
In 1997, Drew was chosen by "People" magazine as one of the 50 Most Beautiful People in the World.
In 2004, Drew joined her family's corner on the Hollywood Walk of Fame with a star of her own.
Drew has been married three times. Drew was married briefly on impulse to ex-husband Jeremy Thomas for a little over a year, beginning in 1994. Her most impulsive marriage however, was to that of eccentric Reality Show/Actor/freak, Tom Green. The two married in 2001 and were hounded by the press until their divorce in 2002.
Finally Drew found and married the love of her life, actor Will Kopelman, on June 2nd, 2012. They have two daughters, Olive;(2012) and Frankie;(2014).
Drew loves being a mother, and is there for her daughters, knowing full well how important that is, having suffered as a child from absent parenting. "My parents are not bad people. It was just a case of them not wanting a child."
Drew wrote her own autobiography at the age of 14, entitled "Little Girl Lost."
Drew has her own production company, FLOWER FILMS, and she has been a producer, executive producer and a director. She has cut back on the number of roles in film projects she takes, and has regular job hours as a producer and executive producer for such TV shows as KNIFE FIGHT; (2013-2014).
"I try to make movies that I would want to go see rather than ones I would just want to do as an actor. I want people to have movies full of romance and hope and empowerment, something they can escape into and feel good about. I love happy endings."
