Woman of the year for Teen Magazine, Drew Barrymore had a future in acting before she was even born. Born in West Hollywood, California, Drew had a long line of relatives in the business. Acting Legends, as they were known as in Hollywood. But the only thing Drew really wanted was the one thing she did not have, a real family. Her mother, Jaid, was a single, working mother handling two jobs so Drew could live a comfortable life. Her father on the other hand was an alcoholic with a drug addiction, he was very abusive. Drew's parent's had divorced before Drew was even born. Since her mother had two jobs, Drew was always left with a babysitter, sometimes feeling abandoned.
Drew was a born actor, if she was not acting on camera she was dressing up and acting for her babysitter. She loved to pretend she had the perfect family. But Drew got her chance to star in a big movie soon enough. It was Steven Spielberg's big picture "E.T.". Drew loved the feeling of being on the set of the movie. Mostly because she felt like it was an extended family, the one she never really had. When the movie came out it became a big hit instantly. All around the world Drew was known as the little "E.T. Girl".
As Drew grew older her attitude was slowly getting too mature for her age. Making more and more movies as the years were passing. She was becoming more mischievous and wanting to try new things. Her and her friend Chelsea both had snuck cigarettes and smoked them in Drew's bathroom before they went out to a nightclub with their mom's. Drew was a little scared because she knew her mom was good at telling if someone had smoked or not. Luckily they got through the whole drive there without their mom's knowing. After they got through lying and getting away with it, they felt pretty good about themselves. But soon Drew was getting bored of just cigarettes and wanted to get a little more extreme. So Drew started drinking alcohol.
