There are as many complications of child prodigy as there are advantages, perhaps even earlier than this. Barrymore was attracted to one of the girls she saw on screen and was also forced to grow up in a hectic pace and lifestyle.
Coming from a family of actors, first appearing on television at eleven months and finally becoming a star in Steven Spielberg’s Aliens (ET) at just 7 years old, his youth was more than sold in chaos, a few years in which drugs and alcohol knew no bounds.
Barrymore is perhaps one of the most traumatic stories of how a young Hollywood girl ended her party life and was addicted to alcohol, marijuana and cocaine from the age of 11 to 13 and had to be admitted to a detoxification center at her age. 14. “I’m always thinking, ‘They’re coming, they’re coming,’ it’s one thing that unfortunately can’t move. I’m sure all of this will go away at any moment, they’ll shut me down again and I’ll lose my job,” he said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.
The first “50 first times” now has its own program, the American “talk” that has had problems in his personal life in recent years, including a divorce and a relapse into alcoholism.
He is accompanied by episodes of sobriety throughout his career, with a false sense of control for a person of “great responsibility”. But his move to New York and his separation from Will Kopelman in 2019 lost everything he had gained in recent years, as he progressed to depression, including consumption.

She knew her friends who had to intervene, among them Cameron Díaz, who these years “could hardly observe (…)”, but she knew that if they all stayed with her and she would find the support she needed. his own way. “I have absolute faith in her. You cannot understand how difficult it was for her as a child, and then she went to the last opportunity to save herself.”
It wasn’t until “The Drew Barrymore Show” that he started to start a detox because “I thought, ‘I’m going to have a joint.’ I insist” And finally I realized, “I’ve never gotten over this, and I never will.”
His recovery is still going strong, but one thing is clear: “I just have to be me. I’m fighting to be someone else.”
