20 Secrets About Drew Barrymore, Hollywood’s Last Survivor

No one has lived more life than Drew Barrymore.

There’s a bit of weird poetry in the fact that the iconic actress spent three seasons on the Netflix comedy Santa Clarita Diet, playing undead real estate agent Sheila Hammond who only truly came to life after a traumatic incident that should have left her for dead. Because if there’s one actress on this planet who can relate to this concept, it’s Barrymore.

With a career that began while she was still in diapers and, apart from brief periods of fallow, that never really ended, a family history that is not smooth, a childhood that has nothing childish, the actress turned daytime talk show host has been there. And like her character Sheila, she miraculously made it through it all and emerged, stronger, on the other side.

She may have been born into Hollywood royalty, but she’s a legend to many because she’s the ultimate example of what it means to be a survivor. Santa Clarita Diet may have been put to pasture in 2019 by the streaming giant after three seasons, but Barrymore still lives on, celebrating his 47th birthday on February 22.
