Former child star and "Charlie's Angels" actress Drew Barrymore has been named top of People magazine's annual "Most Beautiful" list. The 32-year-old actress, who shot to fame when she appeared in Steven Spielberg's "ET: The Extra-Terrestrial" in 1982, nudged out the likes of Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman and Julia Roberts to take top spot.
Barrymore graces the cover of the magazine's latest issue, which hits US news stands on Friday, just days before the release of her new film "Lucky You" from Warner Bros., part of the same media group as People.
Barrymore, who has been included on People's most beautiful list on four previous occasions, credits her success with inner happiness. "I just think happiness is what makes you pretty," she says in an interview with the magazine. "Happy people are beautiful. They become like a mirror and they reflect that happiness." Being named top of People's most-beautiful list "made my peacock feathers shine in the golden-hour light and extend to the heavens," Barrymore tells the magazine.
Others on the "Beautiful People" list include Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Oprah Winfrey, Leonardo DiCaprio, Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Halle Berry and Jennifer Lopez.
