Drew Barrymore is one of the most bankable female stars in Hollywood today. She started off as a child actor and has been acting since then. She comes from a family of great actors and has managed to live up to the name. But not all was rosy for the actress as she has had to struggle with drugs and alcohol in her teenage years and rebuild a career from scratch.

She first burst onto the scene in E.T. the Extra Terrestrial (1982) as the adorable little Gertie. The audience could not seem to get enough of this sweet looking blonde girl who stole everyone‘s heart with her performance. But all the media attention started having a negative effect on her. She got involved in drugs at a very young age and even attempted to kill herself by the age of 14. The law intervened and put her in rehab from where she made a complete recovery.

She also struggled with an image change as she was all grown up now and didn’t really know how to go about it. She did the sexy seductress roles and even got success playing them like in the movie Guncrazy (1992). She also posed naked for a few magazine covers but was admonished by Steven Spielberg himself who knew she was much more talented than this. Since then, Drew made a conscious decision to change and leaned heavily towards the romantic comedy genre. Most of her comedy movies like The Wedding Singer (1998), 50 First Dates (2004) and Music and Lyrics (2007) have been good box-office draws and have also earned her awards. Drew recently gave her best performance in Grey Gardens (2009) as Edith Bouvier Beale in the made-for-TV movie. She also received the Screen Actors Guild Award for her efforts.

Just like in her career, she has had to struggle a lot to find true love. After two broken engagements and two broken marriages, one of which lasted only a month. Drew seems to have found a good soul mate in actor Justin Long. The two started dating in early 2008 but split only to reconcile while working in the movie Going the Distance (2010).
