We have seen plenty of child stars coming through in Hollywood over the years and we will no doubt see plenty more coming through in the future, especially if Disney and Nickelodeon have anything to do with it. Anyway, there was once a time when Hollywood beauty Drew Barrymore was one of the biggest child stars on the planet, thanks to her role in the hit movie E.T., where she won the hearts of the world.
These days though, Drew Barrymore is all grown up and has enjoyed a long and successful career in the entertainment industry, as well as enjoying plenty of happiness in her personal life. Drew has two young children, Olive, three, and Frankie, 23 months, but she has revealed that she is a very protective mother and will make sure that her kids do not become child stars, before joking about how protective she will be.
Barrymore was doing an interview with the US version of the Good Housekeeping magazine, when she explained to them, "I'd never let them become child actors. They'll have a chastity belt, a tracker system, no cell phones and we'll live in the middle of nowhere..." We are sure that there are plenty of you out there who can relate to that, especially fathers with daughters!
When it comes to her own career in the entertainment industry though, Drew Barrymore is still going strong and has plenty of new projects lined up for the course of the next few years. While most of us know Drew best for her acting work, she has also done plenty of producing work and directing work along the way and has plenty more of all areas of the movie industry coming up.
