Drew Barrymore Wiki

At the tender age of 10, Drew Barrymore battled with smoking marijuana and consuming too much alcohol. Four years later, when she was fourteen, she went to rehab. After eighteen months, she was declared an adult and released from rehab but she left her parents to live all by herself in a rented apartment.

The young actress soon dropped out of high school to pursue a career in acting. In an interview with Oprah when she was fifteen, she described feeling overweight, alone and inadequate, with a busy mother who had no time and paid no attention to her psychological needs as a child, as the factors that led her to take succor in drinking and other vices. She also revealed that she had to do many odd jobs, including being a cleaner after leaving rehab in order to survive.

She returned to acting and starred in many movies such as Irreconcilable Difference, Cats Eye, Poison Ivy, to name a few. In 1995 at age 20, she began Flower Films, a movie production with her first and very successful movie, ‘Never Been Kissed Before’. The next year, she released another movie titled ‘Charlie’s Angels’. The movie was a big break and it raked in lots of money with the accompanying popularity. Putting it in perspective, the movie moved her career as an actress and as a producer to another level.
