With a natural flair for comedy and a warm, engaging demeanor, Drew Barrymore has come a long way since her big-screen breakout in Steven Spielberg's beloved sci-fi blockbuster, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982). Despite a troubled and much-publicized adolescence during which she appeared in only a handful of films, Barrymore's star was officially on the rise during the 1990s with notable appearances in Poison Ivy (1992), _Bad Girls (1994)_ , Boys on the Side (1995), Batman Forever (1995), Woody Allen's Everyone Says I Love You (1996) and horror megahit Scream (1996/I). Recent big-screen ventures have included the comedies Duplex (2003), 50 First Dates (2004), Fever Pitch (2005) and Music and Lyrics (2007). Next up is a headlining role in Curtis Hanson's poker drama Lucky You (2007), opposite Eric Bana.
