While still being an actress, Drew Barrymore extended her Hollywood prowess beyond the camera lens and went on behind it: writing, directing, and founding the production company “Flower Films.” Forever business-minded, the entrepreneurial entertainer owns a line of cosmetics, fashion, and wines.
Barrymore embarked into unfamiliar territory in 2020 and launched her eponymous daytime talk show, “The Drew Barrymore Show”, which has seen tremendous success with American audiences. A devoted animal lover, the actress has used her status to bring awareness to animal rights worldwide.
Tommy Lee Jones Now
Tommy Lee Jones won a number of awards in the 1980s for notable television roles. This propelled him into blockbuster stardom, becoming one of the most familiar faces in modern cinema history.
Heavily involved in the outdoors and country life, Lee Jones owns two ranches in Texas and is an avid polo player. So avid, in fact, that he provides support to the Polo Training Foundation. The thrice-married actor lives in his home state of Texas with his wife, Dawn Laurel.
Drew Barrymore Then
Drew Barrymore hardly needs an introduction. The beloved actress had been the apple of the cinematic world’s eye since her breakthrough performance in "E.T.". When Columbia Pictures undertook to film a modern-day reboot of "Charlie's Angels" in the year 2000, Barrymore was handpicked to play the role of Dylan Sanders.
The part of Dylan Sanders shared a similar function as being the “leader” of the Angels. The business-savvy Barrymore bought the screen rights to the "Charlie’s Angels" franchise prior to filming the blockbuster. This decision earned Barrymore around $120,000,000 in profit.
The American actress found herself in leading lady status by playing Alex Munday in the 2000 and 2003 megahit reboots, making up one-third of the crimefighting heroines. The steely starlet was known as the all-rounder Angel and was an expert in electronics and martial arts and a master tactician.
An on-set spat with Bill Murray went down in Hollywood history when the two had an altercation due to an apparent snide remark made by the much older Murray, with Murray refusing to return for the 2003 sequel due to it. The two have since laid differences aside.
Lucy Liu Now
The ever-ambitious actress saw her star rise high above the Hollywood sign after her seminal big-screen performance in the movies. A highly sought-after actress, Liu has dominated the action heroine landscape and has appeared in over forty movies. The profoundly spiritual star has stated that a number of religions shape her spiritual identity, including Jewish mysticism and Buddhism.
Liu sits on the board of the Committee of 100, a Chinese-based foundation to strengthen relations between Chinese and American citizens. She is also a mother to son Rockwell, who was born via surrogate in 2015.
