Drew Barrymore Emancipates Herself

Growing up in a notoriously fractured family, Drew Barrymore separated from her family earlier than most, filing for emancipation from her parents at the ripe old age of 15, and later getting a tattoo of an angel bearing a cross with her mother's name, "Jaid," on it. The rift was understandable: At the height of her career as a child star, Jaid brought Barrymore to clubs like Studio 54, where she was introduced to drugs and alcohol, a habit that eventually landed her in rehab before her 13th birthday. In spite of their troubled history, the two reconciled when Barrymore played a flawed mother in her 2001 film "Riding in Cars With Boys." "Eventually we got to where we could hang out on our own, but there were a lot of real crazy emotions flying all over the place," explained Barrymore. "The one thing my mom said to me to break the ice was that we [had] really needed to separate to become our own people before we could come together again. I respect that."
