Actress Drew Barrymore had a less-than-conventional childhood as one of Hollywood’s hardest working child actors. She later explained that her mother treated her like an adult friend instead of an underage daughter. She quipped that she spent more time at Studio 54 than she did at school. But Studio 54 was not a good environment for a child, exposing Drew to drugs, alcohol, and bad influences. She has been open about her addiction issues that plagued her early teen years, as well as her struggles with recovery.

New York real estate mogul Donald Trump, shown here with his second wife Marla Maples, used to frequent Studio 54 in the late seventies, but no one can recall him ever dancing at the club. He did, however, make a surprise cameo appearance in the 1998 documentary, titled “Studio 54”. As a businessman with an eye for the next big deal, Trump kept tabs on the New York music scene.
