Drew Blythe Barrymore was born on February 22, 1975, in California, to John Drew Barrymore and Ildiko Jaid. Her father and mother had parted two months before she was born, and Jaid had to raise baby Drew alone.

The actress's career began with a TV advertisement made before she had completed her first year, and, aged 4, she appeared on the screen. Her godfather, Steven Spielberg, made her a star in one of his best movies "ET" and three years later Stephen King created a role in his film especially for her. Then it all went terribly wrong.

Jaid started taking Drew to Hollywood parties and at the age of 9 the young girl already had alcohol and drug-related problems. Her mother put her into a special hospital, and by 14 Drew overcame all her problems at last.

She became more optimistic and wrote her auto biography, "Little Girl Lost". Drew also returned to acting. She took part in some TV films. But she wasn't very successful there. After a series of forgettable TV films she played a leading part in 1996's hit "Scream". "Success is the best revenge in the world," she said. "And I'm back." Eager to have more creative plans Drew and her business partner Nancy Juvonen founded a production company called "Flower Films" in 1994. They were a success with the hit "Charlie's Angels". Drew hopes for a family of her own one day. But she says, "It's not like playing dolls", perhaps thinking about her difficult relationship with her own mum.

Now Drew says, "I like the position I'm in — happy about life and comfortable in my skin".

English reading Test ( Тест по Английскому языку, раздел чтение)

Задачи: Понимание основного содержания текста.

Для выполнения задания на соответствие необходимо прочитать внимательно формулировку задания, т.е. утверждения (высказывания, заголовки) и подчеркнуть в них ключевые слова. Как правило, они близки тематически, поэтому надо искать различия, стараясь ответить на вопрос: «Чем высказывания отличаются друг то друга?» Определив эти различия (в виде ключевых слов), следует подумать о синонимах. В заданиях такого типа необходимо соединять с текстом различные элементы, такие как заголовки, фразы, вопросы, утверждения.

Начиная выполнять такое задание, следует определить, что нужно соединять с текстом, а затем использовать соответствующую стратегию.

- заголовки и фразы – надо быстро определить основную идею текста и его частей;

-вопросы – найти в тексте место, к которому относится вопрос;

-утверждения – найти в тексте ту же информацию, которая иначе выражена.

        В данном задании намеренно используется одно лишнее утверждение (заголовок, вопрос), который не соотносится с текстом или текстами. В этом случае надо определить, какие утверждения ( заголовки, вопросы) соответствуют тексту, а что является лишним.

        Важно также помнить, что выполнение этого задания не требует полного и детального понимания текста, и умение проявить языковую догадку, а в отдельных случаях проигнорировать незнакомые «трудные слова», поскольку основное содержание текста может быть понято и без знания этих слов.
