Quick post here, folks. Wasn’t planning on blogging tonight, but I then stumbled on an article that really caught my attention. Couldn’t help but share and write a bit about it. Who remembers Mara Wilson? For those of you who have no idea who I’m talking about, maybe this will spark your memory… Mrs. Doubtfire! Oh, and Matilda, of course! These were seriously two of my fave movies when I was growing up. Not only was this girl incredibly cute, she was also a wonderful actor. Sadly she seemed to disappear after a while and I’m sure a lot of people wondered what happened. Well, I don’t know the whole story yet, but I definitely plan on buying her book to find out. I’m not a huge reader, so this plan of mine really says a lot. Two things that I did read (in the links below): her coming out as bisexual (super cool!), and one of the reasons why she stopped acting. Apparently she was going to be cast as “the fat kid” in a movie! I know, I couldn’t believe it either when I read it! Naturally, this put a damper on her acting plans. To be honest, I do not blame her in the least. I mean, who needs this type of insane judgement in their lives? This decision she made and also her coming out after the awful attack in Orlando… what a brave and strong person!
Two others things I learnt from reading all this..
- Our society has some improving to do! Who in their right mind would call anyone “the fat kid”?!
- Yikes, do I feel old! Can’t believe how grown up she is! I feel like those movies just came out yesterday!
