She’s graced the pages of Playboy, married (and thankfully divorced) the most bizarre celebrity this side of Weird Al, done more drugs before the age of 14 than you probably saw in four years of college, and has even been celebrated as Hasty Pudding’s Woman of the Year. And she’s managed to do it all without turning into a complete caricature of herself. (Which is more than we can say for most women in Hollywood right now.)

Join me in wishing a very happy birthday to Drew Barrymore, who turns 32 today. (32? Wasn’t it just a few years ago she was hiding in the closet with ET?)

Drew, if you show up, your drinks are on me. (The first 5 or 6 anyway.)
