SAN FRANCISCO (AP)- Meet E.T.
She's Tamara De Treaux, a 22-year-
old actress who stands less than a yard
high, weighs 40 pounds, wears blouses
as dresses and sings for a living.
She said she landed a part as the
stranded-on-Earth extraterrestrial in
the movie E.T. after the original E.T.
"People say, 'Hey, you're gonna be
as famous as R2D2,' "she said of the
robot made famous in the movie Star
Wars. "All I can think is, 'Where's
R2D2 today?' I want to be hired to play
a character, not a little person. I've
been in the business 10 years. If it
doesn't happen now, I better hang, up
my little shoes."
De Treaux, who has two other movies
to her credit, said she played E.T. in the
scenes that required movement: boar-
ding the spaceship, fondling flowers,
talking to the children. A mechanical
version was used in the close-ups.
"I just put on the suit, and it fit," she
recalled. "It's very tight. Ever wrap
yourself in cellophane?"
Director Steven Spielberg hired
De Treaux, who lives in San Leandro,
about 20 miles southeast of San Fran-
cisco, after he saw her photo in a
newspaper, she said.
"My height freaked him out. He
didn't know I had training," said De
Treaux, who studied acting at the
American Conservatory Theater in San
In the film, however, acting was
limited to "my cute Daffy Duck wad-
dle. I asked to read for the voice, but
they wanted it mechanical," she said.
Although she was its star, in a sense,
Ms. De Treaux admits that she's only
seen E.T. twice. She likes Barbra
Streisand movies better, she says.
... acting anonomously
"I didn't make a lot of money," she
said of her E.T. role. "Who knew it'd be
the all-time smash."
