There have been few artists who have adeptly transformed from child stars to adult success. Hollywood is a tough business, and to win the hearts of fans, one needs to master the art. Drew Barrymore, over the years has been an important figure in proving this. The 42-year-old actress started out with 1980s ‘Altered States’, and there was no turning back. With several top box-office performances, the American star has kept her feet firm on the Hollywood stage. For this list, I have taken in account Barrymore’s role in the movies, leading and supporting. Here is the list of Drew Barrymore movies that showcase her talent.
11. E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982)
‘E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial’ is a masterpiece by visionary director Steven Spielberg. The 1982 classic is about troubled Elliot’s encounter and the following bond he develops with an extra-terrestrial creature, E.T. There is not much to say about Barrymore’s performance, as it was an early venture of a baby Barrymore. However, the then 7-year-old artist brought a performance brimming with maturity and cuteness.
