E.T. -- the movie that helped define childhood for an entire generation -- turns 31 today! My mom always loves to tell the story of the first time I saw the movie. I was fine until the scenes where E.T. and Elliott are captured by the government. Apparently, the whole scene reminded me of the hospital and the operating room because I started crying, so off to the lobby we went. But, "I want to see the movie," I told my mom, so we stayed in the back of the theater for the rest of the movie, right by the door, in case we had to make a quick escape.
Even to this day, I still have a pretty emotional relationship with the film. But, I loved stumbling across these awesome behind-the-scenes photos today. I can't get over how young Drew Barrymore was!
How unbelievable is that, friends? xoxo
