Celebrities: How Steven Spielberg once matched Drew Barrymore – Panorama

Drew Barrymore, 47, US actress, was matched by US director Steven Spielberg. Barrymore and actor Corey Feldman opened up about their childhood sweetheart on The Drew Barrymore Show. When he was about 12 or 13 and she was about 11 or 12, his grandmother approached him and said, “We got a call from Steven Spielberg’s office. The little girl from ET wants to meet you because she has a crush on you .” Barrymore, who starred in the film ET at the time, said she had a crush on Feldman: “Everybody had a crush on you!” At first it was just one date. Until they made a second attempt about four years later. This time we didn’t go to the cinema, but to the Oscars. The two became a couple. However, the relationship only lasted “about three months”, as the two said.

Robert Pattinson, 36, British actor, regrets a potato excess. Like him the British Evening Standard reported that he had gone on numerous diets. “I used to only eat potatoes for two weeks as a detox,” he said. “Just boiled potatoes with pink Himalayan salt. Apparently you use this to cleanse your body.” Although he lost weight as a result, he is not happy about it in retrospect. “It’s extraordinarily addictive – and you don’t realize how insidious it is until it’s too late.” He’s also tried the high-fat, low-carb keto diet.

Jesse Eisenberg, 39, US actor, is himself enough. “I was just praying – probably like a lot of parents do – please don’t have all the things I have that I hate about myself,” he said on the American “Today” show about the hope that his five-year-old son just won’t turn out like him. “While I’m scared that my child will become independent, at the same time I’m so grateful if he develops different personality traits than I do.” He hopes much more that his son will take after his wife. “I always pray: Just be like them, just be like them, please be completely like them. And for the most part, he’s going in that direction.”

Kylee Gray, Australian ranger, may have lost her way in Jurassic Park. While working in Conway National Park in north-eastern Australia, she suddenly discovered a 2.7-kilogram toad in front of her, the environmental organization Queensland Environment said on Friday. The toad, christened “Toadzilla”, probably sets a new world record. Gray said her breath caught when the monster amphibian suddenly appeared. “I reached down and grabbed the cane toad and I couldn’t believe how big and heavy it was.” The female is said to be 25 centimeters long. “A cane toad this size will eat anything it can fit in its mouth, including insects, reptiles and small mammals,” it said. According to the Guinness Book of Records, the previous record holder was registered in Sweden in 1991, weighing 2.65 kilograms.
