Drew Barrymore Was A Brilliant Actor At 4 Years Old

This 1979 Pillsbury commercial is proof.

At just 4, Drew Barrymore was already showing a wide range of theatrical brilliance — which takes most people years to hone — as seen in this 1979 commercial for Pillsbury’s chocolate chip cookie dough.

2. It is a rainy day in suburbia. A tiny Drew arrives home, soaked, despite her ample rain gear.

3. She is, understandably, quite sad. After all, she is a child to parents who allow their daughter to walk herself to preschool.

4. Notice the subtle, yet poignant, shift as Drew goes from sad to Grumpy Cat-level depression.

5. Drew knows how to build intrigue. Here, as she ingests a warm chocolate chip cookie, she showcases a mysterious air of contentment.

6. Until Drew finally erupts in pure, realistic, joy. I now believe in cookies.
