Actress Drew Barrymore’s godfather and filmmaker Steven Spielberg paired her with fellow child star Corey Feldman.

When the 47-year-old actress reunited with her longtime boyfriend after 25 years when he appeared on “The Drew Barrymore Show” this week, Corey recalled getting a call from Spielberg’s office asking to meet him pulledreports aceshowbiz.com.

“What happened was that one day I got a call. My grandma says, “We got a call from Steven’s (Spielberg) office and the little girl from ‘ET’ wants to meet you because she’s in love with you,” he said. Drew replied, “Oh yes, I did… the biggest one. But so did everyone!”

Drew Barrymore’s mother, Jaid Barrymore, then arranged for the young people to go to the cinema together. Corey continued, “Of course neither of us drove because I was still living with my grandparents and you were living with your mom… And it was so cute.”

“I remember taking you to the movies, I remember exactly which movie theater it was,” he said of the Encino spot. “We were walking across the street and you held up your little hand for me to hold. And I held your hand and we walked down the street… I don’t remember what movie we saw. But I remember all that.”

The pair became good friends and later dated as teens — with the young couple even making their red carpet debut together at the Academy Awards when Corey was 17 and Drew was 14.

Drew Barrymore added of their glitzy outing, “I remember you going, and so I was lucky enough to be your date. And I just put on a Betsey Johnson cotton dress off the rack. I don’t know how much it cost, probably $65.

“I remember getting there, and I remember seeing people in such designer duds. And I remember looking around and thinking, ‘Oh, I’m very underdressed. I’m wearing a Betsey Johnson cotton dress. Oops!’ “

Corey said of their relationship, “We were such a great, cute little thing for the three months we lasted or whatever. But it was cute,” and Drew added, “We were so positive; you and I were such good friends. We had one of those relationships where they said, “Date your boyfriend.” We were the epitome of that. You were so nice, you were such a safe place for me.”

The pair both admitted to partying hard during their teenage years, with Corey confessing that Drew got her life “on track” a few years before he did.

He concluded, “You got sober first; you have your affairs in order first. It took me a few years after you.
