This Day in History February 22, 1975

Yes, indeed.  I have liked Drew Barrymore (without knowing her name) since I first saw her in E.T.  (Oh, that dates me!) And it was on this date in 1975 (about six months after my birth) that she was born.

I was not aware of her turbulent adolescence.  I didn’t really follow her career, but she did overcome drugs.  I know that there are things about here personal life and career with which I do not agree.  I was glad to learn that she is related to the famous Barrymore family.  What a family of actors and actresses!

I have always loved watching her act.  I find her a fantastic actress, and she always seems so classy.  My favorite films of hers are Wedding Singer and Ever After.  I have seen her in one or two others–Fever Pitch was kind of cheesy.  But her comedic timing and classiness always tend to win me over.
