Actress Tatum O'Neal experienced early success as a child star, only to struggle with addiction, a bitter divorce and family acrimony well into her adult years. With her screen debut opposite her real-life father, movie star Ryan O'Neal, the 10-year-old became the youngest actress ever to receive an Academy Award for her supporting role in Peter Bogdanovich's "Paper Moon" (1973). An undeniably talented screen presence, as a teen O'Neal continued to charm audiences with such crowd-pleasing comedies as "The Bad News Bears" (1976) and "Little Darlings" (1980). Within a few short years, however, a tumultuous private life addled by drugs, alcohol and sex began to derail her once promising career, as evidenced by B-movie offerings like the low-budget thriller "Certain Fury" (1985). A stormy marriage to notoriously hot-tempered tennis legend John McEnroe ended in divorce and heroin addiction - all which was covered extensively in O'Neal's 2004 tell-all memoir A Paper Life. The actress began a career rebound with a recurring role on the Emmy-winning drama "Rescue Me" (FX, 2004-2011) and as the star of the primetime soap "Wicked Wicked Games," (MyNetwork TV, 2006-07), until a 2008 arrest for drug possession revealed O'Neal's troubles were not completely behind her. Nonetheless, she attempted to move forward in her life, even attempting a reconciliation with her estranged father on the reality series "Ryan and Tatum: The O'Neals" (OWN, 2011). In a tale as old as Hollywood, O'Neal had traveled from glory to infamy to redemption both on and off screen.
