She was just seven years old when she captured audiences' hearts with her role in the classic movie E.T.: The Extraterrestrial.

She went on star in other blockbusters, making her one of the most successful child stars out there.

And she's got the photos to prove it!

The 41-year-old mom of two took to Instagram to share throwback photos from her childhood days.

"No way! Look what I just found! @rashidajones and @kidadajonesog and @Quincydjones Oh yeah, and E.T. I am finding all sorts of treasure today! #oldstorageunitday," she captioned one throwback with Parks and Recreation star Rashida Jones, her sister, actress Kidada Jones, and their father Quincy Jones.

Quincy, a legendary record producer, produced the E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial soundtrack album narrated by Michael Jackson.

Despite her early fame, Drew revealed her determination not to let her two daughters become child stars.

“I’d never let them become child actors,” she told U.S. Good Housekeeping magazine, adding she freely admits to being a strict parent. “They’ll have a chastity belt, a tracker system, no cell phones and we’ll live in the middle of nowhere…”
