Mara Wilson Lists the Many Reasons Child Stars Go Crazy in Insightful Piece
Mara Wilson, the former youngster from films like Mrs. Doubtfire and Matilda, just published this clever article for Cracked in which she lists the seven reasons child stars so often grow up to be crazy-cuckoo.
Many of her arguments have been made before — their parents were crazy; the media was crazier — but it’s still an interesting take on the subject from someone whose early brush with fame didn’t lead to (allegedly!) throwing bongs out of her apartment window. (For the record, Wilson eventually ditched the spotlight to study acting at NYU, where she graduated from in 2009.)
