Drew Barrymore shares rare childhood footage and confirms she's launching her own talk show!

Exciting news for fans!

American actress Drew Barrymore is getting her own day time talk show.

And if the promo video is anything to go by - it's going to be one hell of a show!

In the video posted by the star, it shows an edit of a now 45-year-old Barrymore interviewing her 7-year-old self. Yes, you read that right. Drew has used real-life footage of herself as a young child from an appearance did on "The Tonight Show," back when it was hosted by Johnny Carson.

In the vintage video, Barrymore is featured on the show while promoting 80s sci-fi film, E.T. - the same film that pretty much made her a household name across the globe. 

US fans can feast their eyes on The Drew Barrymore Show on CBS on Sept. 14. According to the star, it will aim to "celebrate life" for an hour every day. Given the show has been filmed during trying times, it will also focus on sharing positive news with viewers.
