Birthplace: Los Angeles

The latest in the line of Barrymore actors, Drew was initially cast in cute little-girl roles, most notably in E.T. The Extra Terrestrial (1982) at age 7, and television's Babes in Toyland (1986). After several years overcoming her parentage in drug rehab, she emerged to take on the world as a wild child in leading bad-girl roles in Poison Ivy (1992), television's The Amy Fisher Story (1993), Bad Girls (1994), and Batman Forever (1995). She continues to work prolifically, turning out 3 to 4 projects a year in films ranging from thrillers (Scream, 1996) to musicals (Everyone Says I Love You, 1996) to romances (The Wedding Singer, 1998; Ever After, 1998 and 50 First Dates, 2004) and action films (Charlie's Angels, 2000; Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, 2003). She became a hyphenate, both executive producing and starring in Never Been Kissed (1999), Donnie Darko (2001), Fever Pitch (2005) and the Charlie's Angels films.
