Drew Barrymore Lied Her Face Off to Steven Spielberg at Age 6
Drew Barrymore looks beautiful in her floor-length white dress while attending her Curated Shutterfly Collection event at the Hudson Hotel on Thursday (November 12) in New York City.
The 40-year-old actress recently appeared on an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show and opened up about meeting E.T. director Steven Spielberg at age 6.
“I lied to him. I lied my face off,” Drew said. “I told him I was in a rock-and-roll band. I was a drummer, of course, because drummers are the coolest. And that I was a cook.”
“I felt like I had him in my butterfly net, I was so excited. Pippi Longstocking was my hero so I just felt like girls can do anything, there’s no ceiling, and I sold myself and told my little stories and I was like, ‘Eh?’ And he was like, ‘You know what? You’re not right for this,’” Drew added about how she was trying to be cast in one of Steven‘s movies. He ended up recommending her for E.T. instead.
FYI: Drew is wearing a BCBGMAXAZRIA Runway dress.
