The Boys From “Home Improvement,” Then And Now

Any Jonathan Taylor Thomas sighting is a reason to celebrate, but when he’s standing next to his sitcom brother? Even better! JTT came out to support Brad Zachery Ty Bryan at the screening of “Dark Tourist,” which Bryan produced. It’s been almost 15 years since “Home Improvement” went off the air, and these two child stars look much different than they used to, but also kind of exactly the same (right?). It’s good to see that JTT still loves plaid. (Also, those glasses? Hot.) [Us Weekly]

  • 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]

Jonathan Taylor Thomas Reflects On Fame

Childhood TV Shows

“I never took the fame too seriously. It was a great period in my life, but it doesn’t define me. When I think back on the time, I look at it with a wink. I focus on the good moments I had, not that I was on a lot of magazine covers.”

–Teen heartthrob Jonathan Taylor Thomas looks back on his crazy child star lifestyle, and explains why he stepped away from the limelight for nearly a decade to pursue his education: “I wanted to go to school, to travel and have a bit of a break.” After studying at Harvard, Columbia, and St. Andrews, JTT recently returned to acting in the worst possible way, appearing on his TV dad Tim Allen’s misogynist groaner of a sitcom, “Last Man Standing,” but how could I stay mad at that adorable little face?

Mara Wilson Doesn’t Miss Being In Movies

“Film can be exciting, but more often, it’s tedious. The celebrity aspect is nothing short of ridiculous, and auditioning is brutal and dehumanizing. Every time I see a pretty young girl on the subway reading sides for an audition, my only thought is, ‘Man, am I glad I’m not doing that anymore.’ I never feel nostalgia, just relief.”

Mara Wilson, star of “Matilda,” “Mrs. Doubtfire,” “Miracle on 34th Street,” and every other ’90s movie that required a cute, precocious little girl, explains in a recent blog post why she stopped acting in movies and doesn’t miss it. The 24-year-old NYU grad is now working as a playwright and loves connecting with the audience and “living a live moment onstage.” You go, girl. [via Huffington Post]

Eighties sitcoms are funny, but what isn’t funny: Kirk Cameron’s stance on homosexuality. So some of his fellow ’80s child stars took a stand against Kirk and formed Child Celebrities Opposing Kirk Cameron (CCOKC). Cast members from “Out of this World,” “Adventures in Babysitting,” “Mr. Belvedere” and more are speaking out about Cameron’s vile ways. Because not all former child stars are created equal. [Funny or Die]
