Mara Wilson was a successful child actor, until she decided showbiz wasn't for her. Wilson won our hearts playing Robin Williams' youngest daughter in the 1993 comedy Mrs. Doubtfire, and went on to star in the 1994 remake of Miracle on 34th Street and the film adaptation of beloved children's book "Matilda" in 1996.
Now grown up, Wilson has graduated from NYU and is now a playwright.
In a recent blog post, the 24 year old talks about why she left Hollywood and why you'll never see her on "Dancing With the Stars." In her post she said, "Here is something no real celebrity will ever tell you: film acting is not very fun." "Doing the same thing over and over again until, in the director’s eyes, you “get it right” does not allow for very much creative freedom ... In terms of sheer adrenaline, film has absolutely nothing on theater."
