    Admittedly, I haven't seen her in much. I was coerced into seeing "E.T." when that first came out, and, as I expected, I detested it (and still do). However, I blamed Spielberg, not the actors involved. She screamed well, and had been blessed (or, in retrospect, cursed) with the Barrymore name, and that was the only impression she made on me. I didn't see "Firestarter" or any of the other formulaic pictures she appeared in as she passed from childhood into her teenaged years. At one point, I read that she had a drug problem (who doesn't?) and had been getting drunk at something like the age of 8, and I remember idly thinking, "I hope she's not a reincarnation of Diana Barrymore, and I always knew her father was a kook from the time I saw him in 'High School Confidential'." And then I put her out of my mind. When she was in her late teens or early 20's, I happened to see her in a remake of "Gun Crazy" (well worth checking out, as is the original, which starred Peggy Cummins) and she ca... Read more

    Her career as a child actor was OK, she stood in the right spot and spoke her lines without mumbling or sounding like she was reading. That's about as good as you expect from a youngster being put on the screen. Good kid. Then she became more famous for being a young, screwed up victim of Hollywood/Babylon, which was really just for the benefit of the magazine publishing industry, nothing of any consequence came out of it at the theatres. But she eventually began a long slow climb through b-movies, the odd art house worthy flick and onto the A-list making safe-dumb box office oriented films. Good for her. Maybe her third act will be to become the Meryl Streep of her generation. She's had the opportunity to learn her craft. She's endowed with an atypical 'look' that sets her apart from her peers, who all fall into one of three categories of 'babe'. And she has enough industry clout to have her pick of quality projects, if she so wishes. Good Luck.

    She was adorable in ET but has been making pretty bad movies as an adult.

    Barrymore was named Ambassador Against Hunger for the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP). Since then, she has donated over $1 million dollars to the program.

    They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Well i say some of you beholders out there need to make a visit to your optician and sharpish. To my eyes she looks like a fat faced Bette Davis and even by the current low Hollywood standards she's a complete moose.Acting wise she's nothing to rave although she hasnt had much to challenge her yet.

    Another favorite of mine. She did some dumb movies but some very good ones too. From a little kid in E.T. on she has stolen our hearts. Her rough upbringing being in rehab at 13years of age to overcoming so much to become a beautiful and intelligent actress has kept her grounded. She has been in some films that I can watch over and over.

    Good actress to say the least. Made the movie Ever After, and also very funny in other roles she's been in. May I add she was the most adorable child I'ver ever seen in E.T.

    What's weird is that she's now playing older parts, such as a teacher in Donnie Darko. Nobody born more than 10 years after me should be playing adult parts!!

    If celebrity culture wasn't so extreme and the entertainment industry was judged purely on talent, this woman would have no job. She's not only a bad actress (who should NEVER attemp an English accent EVER AGAIN!), she's also a complete idiot. To some people, her ignorance comes off as cute, but to me, it comes across just plain stupid and embarrassing.

    Have we no shame allowing this woman into our living rooms day and night, night and day? Come on people, she's a clown, a raggamuffin,a bundle of hay, a crumby actress and a noisy little can of popcorn. She always talks like she just got punched in the face.

    two or three movies and then collapsing into a booze and drug haze at what? 10? not much of a child actor. not much of an adult actor.

    Seems like she'd be fun to be around and a very dirty, dirty girl in bed.

    she was such a skilled child actor and truly deserves to be placed around the top. she had the ability, even in e.t., to capture an entire scene

    It seems her reputation is greater than her actual talent. She's ok, in both talent and looks, but I don't see what the big deal is.
