Whatever Happened to Mara Wilson From ‘Matilda’ and ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’?

'Matilda's' Mara Wilson

Then: The world fell in love with Mara Wilson when she stormed the big screen in ‘Mrs. Doubtfire,’ ‘Miracle on 34th Street’ and ‘A Simple Wish,’ all before age 11. But she is probably most known for her starring role in the movie adaption of Roald Dahl’s ‘Matilda.’ So what did happen to this once famous child star?

Now: Wilson completely left show business when her child stardom ended (because she was no longer a child) and pursued higher learning at New York University. After graduation, she focused her attention on playwriting and her blog Mara Wilson Writes Stuff. If you like reading pieces by a celebrity who enjoys poking fun at her Hollywood-driven past as a “lisping little girl,” then you should follow her on Twitter.
