33 years ago today, at age 7, Drew Barrymore hosted “Saturday Night Live,” making her the youngest ever host of the NBC sketch comedy show.

She still holds that record today, and she’s hosted the show five additional times since. Her 1982 gig on the show came five months after the release of “E.T. the Extra-Terrestiral.” She reprised her “E.T.” role when she played a homicidal Gertie on “SNL.” Above she’s pictured in the iconic healing E.T. pose with “SNL” cast members Tim Kazurinsky, Gary Kroeger, Brad Hall and Joe Piscopo.

As for the second and third youngest “SNL” hosts, Macaulay Culkin and Fred Savage hold those titles, respectively.
