In the early 90s, Mara Wilson was one of the most famous movie stars. The little girl with a big smile played in countless successful comedies. But later, she just disappeared from our screens. What does Mara look like now, and to what does she dedicate her time these days? Let’s find out!
You will surely recognize this incredibly cute little girl, who at one time was one of the most successful actresses. Fame came to Mara Wilson unexpectedly, after the release of the first film – the 1993 “Mrs. Doutfire”. It is still considered to be one of the most heart-warming comedies of the 90s’, and it deserved every bit of that. Little Mara got one of the leading roles, and despite her young age, the tiny actress did a great job with it.
The next year, she got the main role in “Miracle on 34th Street,” which has become one of the most beloved Christmas movies of a generation. In 1996, Mara starred in “Matilda” side by side with the legendary Denny de Vito. In case you didn’t know, that movie became a classic in a matter of months, with millions of viewers revising it to this day. Soon after that, Mara Wilson disappeared from the face of the earth, making her fans wonder about what happened to her.
Retired from acting
She completely stopped her acting career in 2000. And in 2002, she publicly announced that she was leaving the movie business for good.
Wilson noted that filming movies is a hard and complicated process. And then, there are interviews, presentations, the release of the film, and the events associated with it, not to mention the media and fan feedback. But Mara had other interests and wanted to try her luck in other areas.
What is Mara Wilson doing now?
Wilson now looks very different, but you can still see Matilda in her big bright smile. She dedicates her time to writing memoirs and articles, describing her career in cinema and the experience associated with becoming popular at an early age. It so happens that one of her dreams is to become a famous writer. You can follow her on Instagram, if you’d like.
Mara likes to keep in touch with her fans and readers on different social media platforms. She’s also been a guest on several podcasts, one of which was about taking care of cats. Turns out, she’s a very experienced pet owner. Mara occasionally appears at public events and movie premieres, but she claims that going back to the show business is no longer in her plans.
