READING:

1. Read the article. Then complete the fact file about Drew Barrymore. (0’25)

Do you know the films Beverly Hills Chihuahua, Charlie’s Angels or Whip It? They are all films with the actress Drew Barrymore.

Drew was born in California, USA in 1975. She comes from a family of famous actors, including her grandfather John Barrymore and his wife Dolores Costello. Her parents were actors and some of her aunts and uncles were actors, too! With that family history, it was very natural for Drew to become an actress.

Drew’s first acting job was in 1976. She was 11 months old. At the age of four, Drew was in her first film, but she became famous at age seven. She was the young daughter Gertie in Steven Spielberg’s film E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial.

It wasn’t easy being a famous child and Drew’s teen years were quite difficult. At 19, she fell in love and got married, but she got divorced the next month. But that is all in the past. Today, Drew is an actress, a director and a producer. She’s got a Golden Globe Award and MTV Movie Awards. She’s got a film company, too. Drew Barrymore is happy.
