The sweet boy who conquered cinemas around the world in 1982 with his role in the movie E.T., Henry Thomas, is 48 today and is fighting a battle with alcohol addiction. Namely, the former child star completely faltered due to the pressure of fame.
37 years ago, he played the boy Eliot in the famous Spielberg movie and even was nominated for a Golden Globe and received the Best Young Actor of the Year award.
Last year, he returned to the big door by starring in the series The Haunting of Hill House, which was voted the most terrifying series of all time.
However, the happiness did not last long, as he was arrested Monday in Washington for drunk driving.
According to police, there were no unusual smells or indications that Henry was drunk in the car, but they stopped him for speeding.
It was only when he interacted with the police officer that it emerged that Henry was intoxicated and taken to a police station for sobriety.
The next morning, the actor was released from prison, but he is known to be in a long fight with alcohol, so it is assumed that this unpleasant experience with the police will not deter him from further reaching for a bottle.
