Washington, Feb 20 : American actress Drew Barrymore has a piece of advice for young Hollywood stars who are entering rehab.
Drew's stardom started at a very young age, and she had trouble handling it. She started drinking at the age of 9, smoked marijuana at 10, and snorted cocaine at 13.
By the time she was 14-years-old, she had been in rehab twice.
The 32-year-old actress, who has been sober for sometime, decided to offer her advice when she saw the rise in the number of young actresses currently entering rehab.
"If you don't pull it together for yourself, no one else will," US mag quoted her as saying in the March issue of Vogue.
"That's coming from a person who had to try it all ... and who still loves to have a good time," she added.
"I do believe in 'Work hard, play hard,' but 'Work hard' always comes first, and it did even when I was wild and young," she stated.
