The Barrymore dynasty dates back to Maurice Barrymore, a nineteenth-century English tragedian. Drew’s grandfather, John Barrymore, was the most popular Shakespearean actor in the 1920s and 1930s, a silent movie star. He had the nickname Great Profile. His son, John Drew Barrymore, Jr., a charming actor, acting both in life and on the screen mainly in the role of the hero-lover. Mom is a Hungarian actress, a very pretty brunette Ildiko Jad Mako. The birth of Drew did not save the family, whose head was addicted to alcohol.
Her own career began very energetically. Drew Barrymore starred in commercials when she was not yet a year old, in 1982 she played the sister of the protagonist in “I.T. Alien. ” This was followed by several less successful in comparison with the “Alien”, but quite noticeable roles. Not yet coming of age, Drew Barrymore became the idol of America. The lightning-fast transformation from an ordinary child into a superstar did not pass without a trace for Drew. She begins to attract attention not so much as an actress, but as a source of dirty sensations: alcoholism, drug addiction, attempted suicide, treatment in a psychiatric clinic. Having left school, at the age of 15 she left her mother, and then sued and got the right to conduct her own affairs. A year later, she wrote and published an autobiography, The Lost Little Girl,
All this time, Barrymore continued to act in films, but there was no place for her in serious films – the result of scandalous behavior on the set, quarrels with directors, arrests for drug possession. Drew Barrymore could well wait for the fate of many child actors who, having matured, lose all attractiveness, but in the early 90’s, Drew returned to the cinema in the wake of dubious fame and scandal. The first call from the acting agent, after a long break, rang in 1992. Barrymore was called for the lead role in The Poison Ivy. Following this role, a number of others followed, exploiting the life and screen role of Barrymore – wild, abusive girls, alcoholics, drug addicts and juvenile delinquents.
For the painting “Crazy about Weapons” (1992), she was awarded the Golden Globe Award.
It is very difficult for a child actor to switch to adult roles. Drew Barrymore solved this problem in her own way – changed her role, played a sexy villain so that everyone would pay attention to her intrigues, and not her age.
In March 1994, Drew Barrymore married Jeremy Thomas, who served on a merchant ship in the Navy. In addition, Thomas owned a bar under the laconic name “Room” in Los Angeles. Drew and Jeremy have known each other for more than two years, but despite this, the family lasted only six weeks.
Since 1996, Drew began a gradual return to the image of a cute charming girl. A good example of this is her role as Cinderella in the 1998 film History of Eternal Love, which, however, did not receive much popularity in the States. The hit film “Wedding Singer”, released in the same year, in which Barrymore played with Adam Sandler, with whom they wrote the script for this picture, became a real hit. After “Singer at the Wedding,” her fees soared to seven million dollars per film, plus ten percent of the profits from each dollar earned.
Drew was used to doing everything herself. After “Wedding Singer,” she sets up her film studio, which she calls “Flower Films.”
“I’m a first-class smith of my happiness,” said the actress. She can be trusted: not so long ago she married her longtime friend, MTV host Tom Green.
