Still reeling it in! She’s been in the spotlight since the age of four, but Drew Barrymore has not stopped working, and it shows in her bank account!
According to Celebrity Net Worth, the actress is worth an estimated $125 million, and every single cent of that has been well earned. Drew made her debut on the big screen in 1980’s Altered States. Her breakthrough role came just two years later in Steven Spielberg‘s iconic film, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. But that was just the beginning for the star.
Drew went on to dominate the romantic front in the ’90s and early 2000s with films like Ever After: A Cinderella Story, The Wedding Singer, Never Been Kissed and 50 First Dates. After lending her voice for eight years on FOX’s Family Guy as character Jillian Russell, the A-lister found herself starring in Santa Clarita Diet from 2017 to 2019. Aside from acting, the Hollywood star also stepped behind the scenes.
In 1995, Drew cofounded the production company Flower Films after she ended up owning the rights to Charlie’s Angels, which she coproduced the latest reboot in 2019. The star also launched a cosmetics company titled Flower Beauty in 2013.
When she isn’t reeling in the big bucks, however, Drew is a mother to two kids — daughters Olive and Frankie— whom she shares with her ex-husband, Will Kopelman. The Blended costar even gets to have her little ones on set with her.
“Me at work in the halls of [The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon] with my Olive. I’m about to go on stage for my film The Stand-In in character and shoot a scene for the film. I look at this moment and think she is getting so big,” she wrote via Instagram in March 2019. “And I just like that she likes to hang with her mom. I love to have her at my job and I love that she likes being there. Proud mom.”
Although Drew makes raising her daughters her No. 1 priority, she still makes time to focus on her career. In October 2019, the doting mama confirmed she was getting her own talk show titled The Drew Barrymore Show on CBS.
“It is beyond my wildest dreams to have this opportunity for a daily talk show,” the movie icon gushed to Variety at the time. “I’m truly thrilled and honored to be creating this show with CBS.”
According to a pal close to the 50 First Dates actress, Drew can’t wait to host her own show — which premieres on September 14. “Drew’s always wanted to have a show to bring on new and old friends, talk about art, books, movies, hot topics, life changes and being a parent,” the insider previously told Closer Weekly. “She’ll bring friends on like Cameron Diaz, Christina Applegate and Adam Sandler. This is definitely one of Drew’s dream projects.”
It should come as no surprise that Drew continues to have an incredible career, all while balancing being an amazing mom.
We can’t wait to watch her new talk show!
