In 1982, Hollywood starlet Drew Barrymore won over moviegoers as Gertie, one of the young stars of E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial. Since then, she has starred in and produced blockbuster hits such as Charlie's Angels and Never Been Kissed. Her movies have grossed nearly $2 billion worldwide.
Unlike some child stars, Drew continues to find personal and professional fulfillment in her 30s. This CoverGirl spokeswoman has four films on the horizon and a new man in her life, actor Justin Long. Drew says Justin isn't just a boyfriend, he's a best friend.
"At some point, you decide who you want to be," she says. "You grow up. You make different choices and changes in your life. This relationship is great. It's healthy, it's productive, and it's supportive. It's full of humor and a lot of fun."
Justin says there's more to Drew than a beautiful face and sense of humor. "She's the most compassionate person I've ever met," he says.
