Mara Wilson starred in some of the most popular films of the 90s including Matilda, Mrs Doubtfire and Miracle on 34th Street.

The former child actress Mara Wilson has lifted the lid on what it was like to grow up in the Hollywood spotlight in her book “Where Am I Now?”.


The 28-year-old is still rocking her famous brunette bob and that cheeky grin.


Mara announced in 2012 that she had quit acting because it’s “not very fun” and now works for Publicolor, an organisation that focuses on the psychological effects of colour.

  • Matilda is where my mind went the moment I saw her photo.


  • Interesting to read what life choices and directions she made. I wonder if her acting at this young age was her own choice.


  • She has grown into a beautiful young lady still sporting that lovely smile.


  • My first thought was Matilda!! But yes, Mrs Doubtfire too. It’s always interesting to hear from child stars and the impact that fame/acting has had on their life. Good on her for living a normal life.


  • Still has the sweet smile.


  • She still has a cute, sweet look.


  • She’s still so pretty!


  • Oh she is still cute and fabulous smile too


  • I love seeing the childhood stars grown up, makes them real people, just like us. ????


  • Oh wow! Look at her now! How beautiful! It is so interesting seeing the child stars all grown up!


  • Wow. All grown up and still with that beautiful smile. I’m glad she left acting because she didn’t enjoy it anymore and didn’t hang around just for the money.


  • Wow, she’s all grown up. I remember her from Mrs Doubtfire and Matilda. Good on her for following a path that’s important to her. Many child actors suffer burnout, so it’s great she found another passion in work.


  • She still has that cute little babyface. Sweet girl.


  • She looks a lot different I wouldn’t recognise her


  • She was so cute in those movies.
