Two things the Barrymore Family is known for:

  1. Their status as Hollywood Royalty
  2. The Barrymore Curse

Commonly referred to as Hollywood’s First Family or “an acting dynasty,” the Barrymores have entertained and enthralled audiences since as far back as the 1700s.  Yet along with fame and adulation, the Barrymores’ lives have also contained struggles with strained family relationships, substance abuse, and other personal demons. 

In this episode we trace Drew Barrymore’s family tree, highlighting successes and challenges experienced by some of Drew’s famous ancestors, including the legendary John Barrymore

We also delve into Drew Barrymore’s own personal struggles, including the circumstances that led to her institutionalization at 13 and emancipation at 14, as well as her determination to break the Barrymore Curse.
