Former Child Star Mara Wilson Explains Why So Many Of Them Go Crazy

  • Remember the little girl from “Mrs. Doubtfire” and “Matilda”? Her name is Mara Wilson and she went to NYU and now works as a writer. She’s also pretty darn smart, as is evident from her piece on Cracked explaining seven reasons why child stars go crazy. Basically, it comes down to their parents not helping them, other grownups treating them hella inappropriately, and not having enough of an education to know any better about a lot of things. It’s fascinating. And actually makes me feel bad for Lindsay Lohan. [Cracked]
