Drew Barrymore's birthday was just a few days ago, on February 22, 2020. She turned 45! How did Drew get to where she is today? Well, she was born into a family of actors. Maybe her acting talent was genetically inherited. This would make perfect sense with her appearance in ET at just 7 YEARS OLD. Yes, that's right. Drew started acting in blockbuster films at the age most of us are in first grade learning how to add and subtract.
