As a little girl, she helped E.T. to phone home.
Now Drew Barrymore is backing a somewhat slower form of communication – letters sent through the cash-strapped U.S. Postal Service.
On Thursday the 39-year-old shared an Instagram snap of herself standing in front of one of the familiar blue post boxes as she slipped a letter in.
She captioned the picture: ‘#iheartmail I love stamps ! I love writing to someone! I love receiving a letter! I love the old fashioned world of ink! Snail mail never go away!’
Drew looked delightful in a dark blue mini dress with a dark red and white pattern all over it.
