  • 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]

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]
