Last month, Drew reunited with the cast of iconic 1982 film E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial to mark the film’s 40th anniversary – with the emotional moment captured for a special Halloween episode of her chat show. 

The acclaimed actress shot to fame when she starred in the Steven Spielberg film – with the star visibly emotional as she was joined by Henry Thomas, 51, (who played her brother Elliott) Robert McNaughton (who played eldest brother Michael and Dee Wallace, 73, (who played the children’s mom Mary.)

In the movie, 10-year-old Elliott befriends an alien, who becomes stranded on Earth after his fellow aliens depart in their spaceship without him.

Elliott later introduces the alien, who names himself E.T. for Extra-Terrestrial, to Gertie and his older brother Michael.

The siblings, along with their mother Mary and Elliott’s friends, later help E.T. escape from the government and return home – with the film becoming the highest-grossing movie of all time – a record it held for 11 years.

As the group reflected on their touching memories of the making of the film, Drew said she ‘believed E.T. was real.’

She said: ‘I really loved him in such a profound way. Is it like true that, what would happen, because I would go and take lunch to him.’

Henry added: ‘The first thing I remember is that we were on stage and it was quite cold on the stage and you asked the wardrobe lady if you could have a scarf for E.T.’s neck because he was gonna get cold, so you wrapped the scarf around his neck. But Dee has a great story.
