Drew Barrymore is like light dancing on flowers, wrapped up in a cloud of sweetness. And when she speaks to herself as a young girl it’s even more adorable.
As rumors swirl about the fate of Ellen’s show, there’s talk of who will replace her. Among those mentioned is Drew Barrymore, who already has a show starting in September. So when she cut this promo to invite viewers to watch in the fall, she brought out little Drew.
The clips of young Barrymore come from the actress’ 1982 appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.
“I’ve been waiting all of my life to meet you,” young Barrymore tells her older self.
“It’s been a wild ride. Can you believe I have two daughters your age?” the elder Barrymore asks, referencing her kids, Olive, 7, and Frankie, 6.
“Kind of scary,” kid Barrymore remarks.
