E.T
In 1982, the first CD player was sold in Japan, "Don't You Want Me" was at the top of the charts, and TIME's man of the year was 'THE COMPUTER'.  It was also the year that E.T. the Extra Terrestrial came out, causing children to cry their faces off/ have nightmares about men in space suits for weeks.

HAPPY 30th BIRTHDAY E.T.!

Cake anyone?

To celebrate E.T's birthday, we thought we'd catch up with the major players of the blockbuster in a Lifelounge reunion. And just like your high school reunion, some of them have done a lot better than others.

Steven Spielberg

In 1982: Had two box office records with Jaws and Indiana Jones, was nominated for 9 Academy Awards for E.T, was making serious $$$.
In 2012: Hasn't achieved much. Except for either directing, writing or producing Goonies, Gremlins, Back to the Future, Cape Fear, Hook, Jurassic Park, Schindler's List, Twister, Men in Black, AI: Artificial Intelligence, Vanilla Sky, Catch Me if You Can, The Lovely Bones, Memoirs of a Geisha, True Grit, Minority Report and War Horse.


Henry Thomas
In 1982:
Played Elliott, succeeding at both warming our hearts and seeming constantly on the edge of tears.
In 2012:  Appeared in Legends of the Fall and Gangs of New York. Now plays for a band called The Blue Heelers (Lisa McCune not included).


Drew Barrymore
In 1982: Was the most adorable child star ever. EVER. Sometimes hung out with President Reagan.
In 2012: After her rebellious teenage years of drug use, appearing naked in Playboy, and hanging out with Corey Feldman, Drew Barrymore cleaned herself up, started a production company and spent her time making serious blockbuster dough and appearing in critically acclaimed indie movies. She is still everyone's favourite.


Robert MacNaughton
In 1982: Played Elliott's older brother, also performed a lot of Shakespeare in his spare time.
In 2012: Has given up acting and now lives in Arizona. Still gets called "Penis Breath*.

*unconfirmed. 


E.T
In 1982: Was an alien. Wanted to go home.
In 2012: In space, living off his Reese's Pieces revenue.
