'Extra' Adorable

In 1981, Barrymore landed a role that would forever win her a place in the hearts of film audiences everywhere. Famed director (and Barrymore's godfather) Steven Spielberg cast the 7-year-old as the adorable Gertie in the blockbuster film, E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial. "One day I was a little girl, and the next day I was being mobbed by people who wanted me to sign my autograph or pose for pictures or who just wanted to touch me," she told People magazine. "I was this 7-year-old who was expected to be going on a mature 29."
