"Gal" Friday! Drew Barrymore

Being born into a 200 year old acting dynasty is a great way to earn a toehold into Hollywood, but it's what you do with the opportunity that really counts.

Everybody remembers Drew Barrymore's "Gertie" character from E.T. the Extraterrestrial (1982), but even though she made several other notable child-star roles, it was her rebound from early alcohol & drug addiction (as a pre-teen) into the sexpot ingenue of some fun, light-hearted romantic comedies that secured her place as a major film star. Ever After, Never Been Kissed, Charlies' Angels, 50 First Dates, Fever Pitch, Music & Lyrics and Lucky You, among many others, has made Drew a highly bankable box office draw for many fans.

She's also landed her spot on the Catacombs "Gal" Friday feature with genre-busting roles such as, Firestarter, Batman Forever and Titan AE. Plus, she's such a cute little, sexy minx that I couldn't NOT include her after finding this photo, and this week it helped her edge out a hot British actress and two unidentified super-convention-chicks that will probably show up here soon anyway.

I'd probably like Drew more (as a woman) if she didn't look so much like Elvis.

I don't see the resemblance to the late King, Karswell, but Drew could be my Hound dog anytime.
