It was like that for the first 6 months after E.T. came out. I would go out, and I would get mobbed I was a very shy kid, and going out and getting approached by adults all the time freaked me out I was like a circus freak. But the only time I had to deal with it, was when I left the house. So I stopped leaving the house, I became an 11 year old hermit”
