Drew Barrymore was born under a lucky star: goddaughter of Steven Spielberg and granddaughter of the great actor John Barrymore, she was destined to conquer the cinema.

She got her first role from her famous godfather in the film E.T. the alien in 1982, when she was barely 7 years old. Her childhood and adolescence were chaotic: drugs, alcohol, detoxification, suicide attempts and stays in psychiatric hospitals set the rhythm of her life. In the 1990s, she began to regain the upper hand and landed roles in successful films such as Scream, Forever, and, a few years later, Charlie and the Funny Ladies.

In her private life, the actress had two quick marriages: one month with a barman, then a year with actor Tom Green. She then shared the life of the Strokes’ drummer for four years, then that of actor Justin Long for three years. In 2012, she married art consultant Will Kopelman, with whom she had a little girl the same year, Olive. On April 22, 2014, the actress gave birth to their second daughter, Frankie. But in April 2016, the couple separated after four years of marriage.
