Little Girl Lost by Drew BarrymoreIm not a big fan of Drew Barrymore; granted she was excellent in Firestarter but as she got older her acting skills were replaced with bizarre stunts and behaviour and she became nothing but vulgar, incredibly crass and nasty as a person. I think child actors have a lot of pressure on them and as they grow up and theyre not considered cute anymore, all the spoiling and attention goes away and they resort to drugs, alcohol and erratic behaviour for fun, rebellion and attention. Child stars who went this way that are really memorable to me are Macaulay Culkin, Justin Bieber and yup, Drew Barrymore. Drew Barrymores story is quite sad though because of how young she was when accessing these things, and it really makes me wonder if her behaviour would have been different as a teen had she not been exposed to all this. However, it was written as if it were either a publicity move to bring a fading child star back into the mainstream spotlight, or a way to stop vilifying her parents as the source of Barrymores corruption, which was clearly wrong because Barrymore has mentioned numerous times that her parents and other adults in her life had a lot to do with her drug and alcohol usage and sexually explicit actions for attention.
From what I understand, Barrymore wrote parts of this herself. So naturally its far from unbiased and Im certain well never get all the details of this particular story. I feel sorry for Barrymore; no kid should be under all the stress of fame and fortune at that age. Im glad to have seen that in recent years shes recovered and made a good life for herself and her daughters, reaching out into the beauty industry and getting more serious roles in films such as Donnie Darko.
