Drew Barrymore was born into Hollywood royalty, a descendant of the Barrymore family of well-known American stage and cinema actors. She is an actress, author, director, model and producer. After her breakout role in Steven Spielberg’s E.T., Drew’s childhood took a dark turn. She was smoking cigarettes at the age of nine, drinking alcohol by the time she was eleven, smoking marijuana at the age of twelve, and snorting cocaine at the age of thirteen. Her nightlife and constant partying became a popular subject with the media and she was in rehab by the age of fourteen, after which she spent eighteen months in an institution for the mentally ill. In her late teens, her rebelliousness played itself out on screen and in print and Drew forged an image as a manipulative teenage seductress. At the age of seventeen, she posed nude for the cover of the July issue of Interview magazine with her then-fiancé, actor Jamie Walters, as well as appearing nude in pictures inside the issue. Her love life has also been tumultuous. Drew married her first husband at the age of nineteen on March 20th, 1994, but filed for divorce less than two months later after an acrimonious breakup. In 2001, after only a year of marriage, Drew and her second husband Tom Green also divorced. She had a five-year relationship with The Stroke’s drummer Fabrizio Moretti, after which she had an on-again-off-again relationship with actor Justin Long. In early 2011, Drew began dating art consultant Will Kopelman, and in 2012 they were wed. Barrymore and Kopelman have two daughters, but in 2016 the couple announced their intent to divorce.
