7. Drew Barrymore

Drew Barrymore is a successful actress. But there’s no way she can out-act her allergies, specifically to cosmetics and perfumes.

During the filming of Grey Gardens, in which Barrymore played Little Edie Beale, the actress had to pile on the makeup, sometimes sitting in the chair for four to six hours every day. Her skin reacted with rashes, blisters, scabbing and painful peeling.

“We ended up with skin issues I'd never had before because I developed an allergy to isopropyl, the alcohol used in removing cosmetics,” Barrymore said
