April 13, 2024 – Drew Barrymore takes the most pride in her sobriety.

“I think, for me, stopping drinking is one of the most honoring things I can do to the Barrymore name because we have all been such hedonists,” the 49-year-old star told People in an interview. “Don’t look to me as the pillar of health and wellness and having it all together,” she warned.

“It’s just like, you know what? This didn’t work for our family, and I’m going to stop it,” the “Charlie’s Angels” actress explained. “I’m going to be the one to break the link in that chain and maybe my kids and their kids will be better off for it.” Drew comes from a long line of actors — her father was the legendary actor John Barrymore, while his siblings were Oscar winners Ethel and Lionel Barrymore. Their father, John Barrymore Sr., was one of the best-known actors in the 1920s and ’30s.
