Familiar face

Having nothing better to do and having no movie to watch I was flipping through the channels on TV. “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” was showing on one of them. I didn’t want to watch it, so I passed. But few minutes later something was bugging me in my head and I couldn’t understand what it was. So I sat down and started thinking. Everything was pointing to that “E.T.” movie on TV, so I went back to the living room and switched it on.

Watched it for 2 more minutes and than it struck me – the face of the little girl, named Gertie, was really really familiar. That felt very strange since the movie is pretty old, from 1982 and I am too young to remember faces of children from movies of those times. And suddenly I recognized her! Yup, she did that thing with her lip that identifies her from the million others… She is Drew Barrymore. And she is only 7 years old. Cool, eh…
