Damn that makes me feel old. I remember when she was the little sister in ET (1982) and it just doesn't seem that long ago.
Drew is, of course, the daughter of actor John Drew Barrymore, and Jaid Barrymore and grand daughter of the original Hollywood film star of the family, John Sydney Barrymore , and began her own acting career at 11 months, when she starred in a dog food commercial, and the dog bit her. She laughed and got the job. She seems to have been smiling ever since.
Drew went through a rebellious, drug crazed period after her child stardom commenced, but seems to have survived and prospered thereafter.
I really love my body and the way it is right now. There's something very awkward about women and their breasts because men look at them so much. When they're huge, you become very self-conscious. Your back hurts. You find that whatever you wear, you look heavy in. It's uncomfortable. I've learned something, though, about breasts through my years of pondering and pontificating, and that is: Men love them, and I love that.Rule 5 for both boys and girls, Drew's Father, John Barrymore with another great, Greta Garbo, in "Grand Hotel", 1932.
Well, that's enough chatter, more pictures below the fold
Ooops, wrong Barrymore; this is Jaid, her Mom; hot genes, huh?
Ted is featuring Linda Carter (aka Wonder Woman) in his Weekend Women series. Maggie at Maggie's Notebook has cow girls (and a few cowboys). Thanks to William Teach for linking me up at Pirate's Cove in this week's "Sorta Blogless Sunday Pinup." And thanks to the indefatigable Socho-Wombat for including this in this weeks massive Rule 5 post over at The Other McCain.
Check your bios. The John Barrymore pictured with Garbo is her grandfather, one of the great stars of the 30s.ReplyDelete
Her father is John Drew Barrymore, who started out as a leading man, but became a pretty good character actor in the late 50s and 60s.
I stand corrected. I didn't read the bio carefully, and the two John's got me confused. I thought it might have been a May-December sort of thing.Delete
