Are drew barrymore and justin long still dating 2016 snowboarding singles dating
By the time Drew was 12 she was drinking alcohol and using cocaine; at 13 she was in rehab; and at 15 the little girl who had shown so much promise was working in a Hollywood coffee shop.There were two more trips to rehab before she moved in with musician David Crosby, himself a survivor of drug and alcohol abuse, and his wife, who helped her straighten her life out.Drew’s father, John Barrymore Jr, split from her mother, model Jaid, soon after Drew was born, and died in 2004 after years of homelessness and drug addiction. “I liked when my dad would walk around in bare feet, stoned, and talk about how the blades of grass felt on his feet, and how he could tell which ones were hurting and didn’t want to be stepped on, and I thought, 'Wow that’s my dad; he’s really trippy and cool,’ ” she recalls.
They met three years ago when they were both cast in He’s Just Not Into You and dated for a year before splitting up and then reuniting early last year. “I thought it would be a unique experience to go to work with someone I did have a history with and I have had emotional times with and who genuinely makes me laugh and who I’m genuinely attracted to,” she says.“I pride myself on them and I didn’t know I had that much discipline.I’ve worked really hard and got to do things I’ve always wanted to do and now I feel things are going really well.But she turned her life around and during the past decade has matured into a multi-talented actress, producer and, more recently, director, who has shaken off the shadow of her family name to establish herself as a major force in her own right in Hollywood.“Being a Barrymore didn’t help me, other than giving me a great sense of pride and a strange spiritual sense that I felt OK about having the passion to act,” she says.
