A different kind of rabbit


As I crawled the Virtual Dumpster I call the Internet.....
It is Easter and I wanted to post about a different kind of Bunny..
A couple of years ago, I was curious how old Drew Barrymore was and about her Barrymore roots...

Drew Barrymore and her lineage of family in showbiz starts with her grandfather John Barrymore. She is also the great niece of Academy Award-winning actors Ethel and Lionel Barrymore. Her parents, Jaid and John D. Barrymore, also spent time in the spotlight.

I found out at the time that Drew Barrymore had a production company named "Flower Films" and actually "Charlie's Angels" was of her company's production.
What appealed to my eccentric eye, is DONNIE DARKO. Drew's bio mentioned it almost failed and she had to put more of her personal money and self as in a small role into it. It mentioned that after it hit DVD it became a cult film. That immediately made me look for it. THUMBS UP!

Oh and Drew Barrymore is 36 yrs old...(reason I inquired back then)

I'm in love with Drew, she just seems like a real person and doesn't try to put on aires for the camera.

She is beautiful and I believe she is genuinely all through. When her dad died(John Drew Barrymore who was not around for her growing and said to only come by to beat on the wife and kid due to alcoholism) she just said, "He was a cool cat. Please smile when you think of him."
