Drew Barrymore has revealed that director Steven Spielberg taught her everything she knows about acting.
The Whip It star, who was cast in Spielberg's ET when she was only five years old, said that out of all the directors she has worked with, he has always given her the best advice.
Barrymore told Empire: "I've spent my whole life working with more than 60 directors, so I've picked up all kinds of tips. Steven Spielberg has been a big help."
She continued: "He gave me great notes. He's a wonderful mentor."
Barrymore also compared her latest film to her first, adding: "My favourite scene in Whip It is actually the food fight, which is an homage to ET, when we had that big food fight in the lunch room."
