Trivia that mentions this person:
Annie [1982]
  • Drew Barrymore auditioned for the role of Annie, as did a young [?] Elizabeth Berkley, but she was told that she was too tall for the part. Kristin Chenoweth auditioned for Annie and got to the final stages of the audition process but was turned down because her Southern accent was too thick. She later went on to play Lilly St. Regis in another production of Annie.
    EverAfter: A Cinderella Story [1998]
  • The portrait of Drew Barrymore's character (which is painted by Leonardo Da Vinci in the film) is actually modeled after another Da Vinci Work, "La Scapigliata".
    Poltergeist [1982]
  • Drew Barrymore was considered for the role of Carol Anne, but Steven Spielberg wanted someone more angelic. It was Barrymore's audition for this role, however, that landed her a part in E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial.
    Scream [1996]
  • Drew Barrymore and Neve Campbell did not meet Roger Jackson, the actor who played The Voice, before shooting commenced. Whenever they are talking on the phone to the killer, they are actually talking to him.
  • To keep Drew Barrymore looking scared and crying, director Wes Craven kept telling her real life stories about animal cruelty. She is a keen animal lover in real life.
  • Drew Barrymore was originally cast as Sidney Prescott (eventually played by Neve Campbell). But Drew Barrymore insisted that if she played Casey then it would make the audience think anything could happen.
    Scream 2 [1997]
  • The scene of "Stab," the movie-within-a-movie of Scream 2, that recreates Casey Becker's death also recreates, and exaggerates, an apparent error of Scream. In Scream Casey (Drew Barrymore) was stabbed in the chest with an obviously prop, retractable knife, and the wound did not bleed until the shot following the stabbing in which Casey falls to the ground. When Casey (Heather Graham) is stabbed in "Stab," the knife almost leaves her chest, revealing the sweater undamaged.
    Spider-Man [2002]
  • Several names that were considered for the role of Mary Jane (some more seriously than others) over the years in which this project was in development include: Alicia Witt, [?] Mena Suvari, Eliza Dushku, [?] Elisha Cuthbert, [?] Jennifer Jason Leigh, Ally Sheedy, Jodie Foster, [?] Natasha Richardson, Phoebe Cates, [?] Tatum O'Neal, [?] Bridget Fonda, [?] Lori Loughlin, Diane Lane, Sarah Jessica Parker, Brooke Shields, Kyra Sedgwick, [?] Justine Bateman, Nicole Kidman, Julia Roberts, Molly Ringwald, Jennifer Aniston, Uma Thurman, Jennifer Connelly, Winona Ryder, [?] Christina Applegate, Cameron Diaz, Alyssa Milano, Tori Spelling, Neve Campbell, [?] Tiffani Thiessen, Alyson Hannigan, and Drew Barrymore
    The Twilight Saga: Eclipse [2010]
  • Both [?] Paul Weitz and Drew Barrymore were considered as directors.
    Poltergeist II: The Other Side [1986]
  • A poster of the film E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial can be seen in Carol Anne's bedroom. Drew Barrymore had auditioned for the role of Carol Anne in Poltergeist before landing the role of Gertie in E.T..
