Drew Barrymore — Granddaughter of film legend John Barrymore, Drew Barrymore comes from a long line of entertainers and actors. She has taken up the family tradition and been in films, commercials and much more since a very young age.
Barrymore was very young when she starred in E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, one of her most noted roles even though she was just a child. Since then she has made a name for herself as more than just a child star, and has provided plenty of quotable sayings.
“Everyone is like a butterfly. They start out ugly and awkward and then morph into beautiful, graceful butterflies that everyone loves.”
“In the end, some of your greatest pains become your greatest strengths.”
“I don’t want to sit around and hope good things happen. I want to make them happen.”
“I’ve spent a lot of time in my life dedicating myself to love or the pursuit of love or the understanding of love. And now I’ve stopped believing in happy endings and I’ve started believing in good days.”
“I believe that everything happens for a reason, but I think it’s important to seek out that reason – that’s how we learn.”
“Sometimes I bust out and do things so permanent. Like tattoos and marriage.”
“I pray to be like the ocean, with soft currents, maybe waves at times. More and more, I want the consistency rather than the highs and the lows.”
“There’s something liberating about not pretending. Dare to embarrass yourself. Risk.”
“God made a very obvious choice when he made me voluptuous; why would I go against what he decided for me? My limbs work, so I’m not going to complain about the way my body is shaped.”
“If you’re 35 and single and it’s a choice, it feels fine. So I didn’t settle with the wrong person yet. Big deal!”
“When I lay my head on the pillow at night, I can say I was a decent person today. That’s when I feel beautiful.”
“I never really had a childhood. I was around adults all the time. My favorite book when I was eight was “Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex – But Were Afraid to Ask”. I was not afraid to ask.”
