In 2002, Drew Barrymore, determined to conquer her fear of flying, signed up for skydiving lessons and, one day in December, jumped from a plane at 14,000 feet strapped to an instructor. "I kept thinking, 'Is it possible to have a heart attack?'" she recalled. "Can you die of sheer fear?"
Fortunately, Drew reached the ground safely. Less fortunately, after recovering from the shock, she realized she was even more afraid to fly!
