Drew Barrymore shares 2nd grade letter to pen pal, adorable childhood pics

Drew Barrymore has been a Hollywood fixture ever since she was a child — and she's got the photos to prove it!

Barrymore, 41, shared an amazing collection of throwback photos with her Instagram followers on Tuesday, hashtagging each pic "#oldstorageunitday."

“No way! Look what I just found!” Barrymore captioned a pic of her posing with E.T., taken around the time she and the lovable alien were co-stars in 1982's "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial."

Who's that posing with them? "Parks and Recreation" star Rashida Jones, her sister, actress and model Kidada Jones, and their music mogul father Quincy Jones. Papa Jones, of course, produced the "E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial" soundtrack album narrated by late pop icon Michael Jackson.

In another shot, the adorable youngster can be found sitting on set in a director's chair. "At work on 'Firestarter' 1982, North Carolina," she captioned it.

"My favorite things to do are acting, and to take jazz and my favorite sports are swimming...I am happy with my life just the way I am," the youngster wrote in neat penmanship.

The adult Barrymore? She chimed in with a sweet hashtag: #stillfeelthesame.
