Who would have thought that little Gertie from 'E.T.' would grow up to be smoking cigarettes at 9, marijuana at 12 and a cocaine addict and in rehab by the age of 13. After falling once again into the pitfalls of many child stars, Barrymore was back in rehab at aged 14 after a failed suicide attempt.

However, Barrymore managed to get sober and revive her career. Today, Barrymore has enjoyed a long successful career as an actress and producer, and the star is expecting her first child with her third husband.
