Fame came to Drew early, and with it a raft of other problems. At only 7 she starred in E.T. and only a few years later started abusing drugs and alcohol. In her biography 'Little Girl Lost' she recounts that she began drinking at 11, smoking marijuana at 12 and snorting cocaine at 13, which was also the year she was first sent to rehab. At only 15 Drew was emancipated as an adult by the courts and moved into her own apartment. After her painful childhood Drew worked hard to maintain her sobriety and has built an extremely successful career as a quirky, comedic actress. Drew married Will Kopelman, an art dealer, in June and is pregnant with his child.
