Henry Thomas is my age.
I enjoyed the E.T. visit commercial where he is a grown adult with a family. And he is, in fact, a grown adult with a family. He’s had several marriages, has had a few kids.
But I remember how fame hit him as a kid. As he said in an interview once,
“I was like a circus freak. I became a hermit”
Yet, with all that, for some odd reason, that he got pulled over for DUI a few weeks ago and that Thomas told the officers he was an actor and had been in the movie “E.T.”…
..I dunno, I feel a little better about my life. It’s just… so human.
