[ # ] Drew Barrymore thought E.T. was real
October 28th, 2022 under Drew Barrymore

Drew Barrymore was barely 6 years old when she filmed E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. Therefore, the little girl thought that the alien was real.

On Monday’s episode of The Drew Barrymore Show, the actress is reunited with her castmates, Dee Wallace, Henry Thomas, and Robert MacNaughton, from the film that turned 40 this year, and she told them about that.

So, Wallace, who played her mom, shared this tidbit with Barrymore, “We found you over there just talking away to E.T, and so we let Steven [Spielberg] know. And so Steven, from that time on, appointed two guys to keep E.T. alive so whenever you came over to talk to him, he could react to you.” That is as sweet as a bag of Reese’s Pieces Candy.

And for all of you who wanted a sequel to the 1982 movie, I have some bad news for you. Barrymore told her movie family, “I feel like I remember, and Steven will correct me if I’m wrong…I remember him saying, and I remember the word, he said, ‘I’ll never make a sequel to E.T.’ and in that moment I thought, ‘Oh, that’s a bummer because that doesn’t bring us all back together again for another round, but I also understood and respected and completely knew that it was all about preservation of integrity for him.”
