Before we look at some of Drew Barrymore’s sizzling pics, let’s get to know Barrymore in her rebellious younger years. You can also read about Drew Barrymore’s mother, Jaid Barrymore, right here.
The Royal Barrymore Family of Hollywood
Drew Barrymore was born on February 22, 1975, in Culver City, California. She comes from a wealthy Hollywood family as her father and grandfather were also well-known actors. The Barrymore family name has some greats in the entertainment industry, like her grandfather John Barrymore, who was a stage actor in the early 1900s.
John Barrymore began his acting career on stage with his father, Maurice Barrymore. He then went on to do films and was seen in some classics like Sherlock Holmes (1922), Sea Beast (1926), Grand Hotel (1932), and Midnight (1939) to mention a few.
Drew Barrymore’s father was John Drew Barrymore, who was also an established actor, but he wasn’t a superstar. John Drew Barrymore took things a little lightly, or so it seemed, when he was offered a role in the ‘60s in Star Trek and failed to show up to the sets. He was replaced by Robert Brown in a hurried search, and after that stint, he received a six-month SAG (Screen Actors Guild) suspension.
It was this hiccup in his career that saw the downfall of Barrymore, and things took a turn for the worse. John Drew Barrymore’s bad side was often exposed, which included spousal abuse, drug use, and public drunkenness. He married four times, and all his marriages ended in a divorce.
Drew Barrymore’s mother, Jaid Barrymore, was married to John Drew Barrymore from 1971 to 1984. Jaid Barrymore came from a displaced people’s camp in Munich, Germany.
She has also had some acting stints and is known for movies like Night Shift (1982) and The Last Days of Disco (1998). But, did you know that Jaid Barrymore also graced Playboy magazine and that her daughter did as well a few months after her?
A Troubled Childhood
Drew Barrymore had a pretty wild childhood that included smoking cigarettes when she was nine, doing drugs when she was 11, and a suicide attempt at 14.
Barrymore has been acting since she was a child, and she even had to prove her mettle for belonging to “The Royal Family” of Hollywood. The sudden fame that she found herself in led her to an emotionally unstable place in her life, and she easily took the wrong path.
The young actress was sent to a mental institution where she stayed for more than a year. She was later seen at another rehab facility to cope with the overwhelming stress from her past.
Drew Barrymore was born to John Drew Barrymore’s fourth wife and is the youngest child of the actor.
It must have been a difficult time in her life when her father was battling cancer. And although they were not on good terms, she moved him closer to her so that she could take care of his medical bills and his health in 2003.
