After three stints in rehab, a 15-year-old Drew Barrymore decided it was time to get her life in order and escape her hard-partying parents. She petitioned the court for emancipation, and the request was granted in 1991.
"I did what I had to do to get [emancipated], which was play by the rules and re-figure out my life and disconnect myself from the people I knew and the lifestyle I knew and prove that I was a responsible citizen with a good head on my shoulders," the actress said during a "60 Minutes" interview. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff
