Which actress contributed to developing the voice of E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial?
– Kim Basinger
– Meryl Streep
– Debra Winger
– Susan Sarandon
Answer: The major voice work of E.T. was performed by Pat Welsh, an elderly woman from California. Welsh smoked two packets of cigarettes a day, which gave her voice a quality that sound effects creator Ben Burtt liked. She spent nine-and-a-half hours recording her part, and was paid $380 by Burtt for her services. Burtt also recorded 16 other people and various animals to create E.T.’s “voice.” These included Spielberg; Debra Winger; his sleeping wife, a burp from his USC film professor; as well as raccoons, sea otters, and horses. Debra Winger not only contributed to the voice for E.T., but she also appeared in the film as one of the ghouls in the Halloween sequence.
Debra Lynn Winger is an American actress. She is best known for roles in An Officer and a Gentleman, Terms of Endearment, and Shadowlands, all of which earned her a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actress. Wikipedia

I don’t think that I’m that easy to live with. I have to be reminded that I can have fun. I need my family to remind me in a loving and nice way to lighten up.
If I could have one prayer answered, I would pray for patience. I move so fast sometimes. I try to slow down.
People pay to see movies with women looking beautiful, but I think there will be a place for me to play women looking my own age.
