Teenage Breakdown Led Me to Where I Am: Drew Barrymore

Actress Drew Barrymore says her teenage breakdown was the best thing that ever happened to her.

Barrymore made her film debut at the age of 5 in 'Altered States' in the year of 1980. She received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actress in 1984 for her role in 'Irreconcilable Differences'.

In the wake of the sudden stardom, she endured a notoriously troubled childhood. She was a regular at the famed Studio 54 club when she was a little girl and had started boozing at the age of nine and took cocaine at the age of 12 for the first time.

She was in a rehab at age 13 and a second time at 14 because of her addiction to boozing and snorting cocaine.

However, Barrymore insists that the early phase of her life taught her many valuable lessons because of which she doesn't things for granted anymore.

'It led me to where I am. I don't take things for granted,' the Sun quoted her, as saying.

Barrymore later described this period of her life in her 1990 autobiography, 'Little Girl Lost'.
