A-List actress Drew Barrymore said she won’t let her daughters be child stars like she was.
The star got her big break in E.T whe she was only seven, but wants to protect her own daughters from the limelight.
She said, ''I don't like the idea of young girls growing up with social media, because I know how sensitive they are. But there's no going back.
''If you totally shelter your kids, that's not normal, but I don't want mine to have mobile phones until a certain age.
''I will never let my children act. When they're 18, if they want to, but not before.''
She added,  "E.T was the best thing that ever happened to me because it changed the course of my life. I didn't have family and home and structure, so the world of film gave me that framework.
''But it's different for my children. They are going to have everything they need.
''I can't wait to show them E.T. and the Charlie's Angels movies, so they can see girls having fun with each other and being capable, not competitive.''
