Drew Barrymore Interviewed by Anderson Cooper for 60 Minutes on CBS News

I’m a huge fan of Drew Barrymore and not just because I found her so cute in E.T. Drew is an amazingly down to earth woman inspite of being hugely successful. Very few actresses today have this vibrant energy, talent, drive, and very unique ‘je ne sais quoi’. Drew has become a film director and this alone makes her unlike the myriads of other actresses out there: She’s a leader, a business woman and a fighter. I like Drew because she’s enterprising and is the director of her own life. She doesn’t wait for things to happen, she makes them happen. Although a huge success, she’s still approachable and reminds me of a nice friend I can chat with about anything without being judged, casually over ice cream or drinks.
Drew overcame so much growing up yet she’s a fighter as she managed to come back onto the Hollywood scene and secure a safe place within the hard to crack A-listers’ list, or the cream of the crop of Hollywood, as I like to call them.

This piece taught me a lot of things I didn’t know about Drew. I didn’t know that a Broadway theatre in New York was named after her grandparents, for example, and that they were the greatest actors in their era. Her family acting roots go back to the 14th century, in fact. I also didn’t know that she called Steven Spielberg  her ‘godfather’ and that the people on acting sets served as a family to her.

They had an old photograph of Drew’s grandmother, Ethel, and I can’t believe the resemblance.

Here are some videos and some photos, courtesy of 60 Minutes:
