Drew Barrymore Believed E.T. Was Real as a Child

Drew Barrymore is reflecting on the innocence of childhood with some of her fellow E.T. castmates. 

The actor-turned-talk-show-host is getting the band back together on an upcoming episode of The Drew Barrymore Show, where she admitted that she believed the extra-terrestrial puppet was real when they were filming the cult classic in a preview shared on the show’s Instagram account earlier today, Oct. 28.

“I believed E.T. was real,” she revealed in the first moments of the sneak peek. “I really, really loved him,” she continued, as some of her guests looked on skeptically, “in such a profound way.” So much so that she would even bring lunch to him as a little girl.
