Random Images: Young Drew Barrymore

(Last Updated On June 4, 2022)

Drew Barrymore (b. 1975) appeared in an advertisement when she was only 11 months old.  After a turbulent childhood, she was one of the fortunate ones able to transition into a career as an adult in the movie business—finally directing and producing films.  In this photograph—taken in West Hollywood—she is four years old and reportedly questioning her mother about what a butterfly experiences when it flies.

  1. A minor correction:
    If she was born in 1975, then in this 1978 picture she was three years old (or going on three), not four years old.

    • Because there are some gaps in the provenance of this photograph—it appeared in a book about child stars, I am not sure what to correct about this (the age or the date) so for now I will have to leave it be. But yes, someone out there didn’t know how to do arithmetic. -Ron
