Drew Barrymore is the human equivalent of a sugar cookie bouquet. She’s grown before our eyes from a sweet, pigtailed alien whisperer to a sweet, teenage flower child to the sweet, slightly lispy hippie woman she is today. And along the way, she’s touched a lot of animals. Not just in the spiritual sense—physically she’s touched many, many animals. In fact, she may have pet more non-human creatures than any living actor ever, including Kevin James, the star of Zookeeper. This week, she stars in Big Miracle and (SPOILER ALERT!) saves a whole family of whales by crying in front of some senators. Click here for the full collection of Drew + furry friends pics.
