The actress’s first contact with the director was when she was chosen to act in the film “ET”, in 1982. At just 7 years old, the actress did not have a structured home and found a family on the sets and in the production team.

“The only person in my life to date who has ever been a parental figure,” said Barrymore, referring to the director.

Steven Spielberg, however, admitted his concern for the artist. “She was staying up way past her bedtime, going places she should only have heard of and living a life at a very young age that I think stole her childhood. However, I felt very helpless because I was not her father. I could only be an adviser to her, ”he said.
