Drew Barrymore and Corey Feldman reunited on “The Drew Barrymore Show” this week, offering peak ’80s nostalgia and particulars of their first date. (Watch the video beneath.)
The former child-star couple had not seen one another in 25 years however clearly, the connection remained.
“Do you remember our first date?” Feldman requested. Barrymore requested him to jog her reminiscence.
“What happened was, I get a call one day,” Feldman stated. “My grandmother says, ‘We got a call from Steven [Spielberg’s] office, and the little girl from ‘E.T.’ wants to meet you because she’s got a crush on you.’”
“Oh yeah, I did, the biggest,” Barrymore chimed in.
Both performers have ties to Spielberg from early of their careers. Barrymore starred within the Spielberg-directed “E.T.” (1982) and is the famed filmmaker’s goddaughter. Feldman appeared in “The Goonies” (1985) and “Gremlins” (1984), which have been co-produced by Spielberg.
Feldman stated Barrymore’s mom, Jaid, wished to coordinate the “playdate” and he was all for it. He stated he was 12 or 13 on the time, whereas she was 10 or 11.
The two have been pushed to the flicks. “We walked across the street, and you put your little hand up for me to hold,” Feldman stated. “And I held your hand, and we walked across the street.”
“I don’t remember what movie we saw,” Feldman continued, “but I remember all that.”
The two stayed pals and Barrymore famous that they “properly dated” for a quick time years later. They shared one other memorable date on the 1989 Oscars.
“I just thought we were having so much fun,” Barrymore stated.
“We were such the great little, cute little item for like the three months we lasted or whatever. But it was adorable,” Feldman stated.
