  • Drew Barrymore will write a book of essays based on her life

    Stop press: Hollywood’s ultimate wild-child, Drew Barrymore, has confirmed she’s writing her autobiography and we can hardly contain our excitement.

    Described by everyone’s favourite Charlie’s Angel as less of a ‘heavy memoir’ and more of a light collection of essays, Drew confirmed her new venture to People explaining: ‘I love stories that are humorous, emotional and welcoming, and that is my goal in writing this book’.

    She’ll certainly have a wealth of stories to choose from: stealing our hearts aged-7 in Steven Spielberg’s 1982 classic E.T the Extra-Terrestrial, Drew’s childhood and adolescence rebelled in the limelight. Already a regular at the iconic Studio 54 by the time she’d hit puberty, drinking, smoking and drugs soon followed and at 14 her bid for legal-emancipation from her parents was granted.

    And that’s just the start of things…suffice to say we can’t wait to read it all in Drew’s own unique words.

    It’s not the first time Drew has penned words on her turbulent life. Way back in 1990 she wrote her autobiography, Little Girl Lost, at the wise old-age of just 15-years-old.

    Now aged 40 with two adorable children, a husband and a settled home-life, only time will tell which wild-tales in particular Drew Barrymore will pick from the archives.

    In the meantime, we couldn’t help but take a look back at Drew Barrymore’s most iconic moments.
