Former Child Star Mara Wilson on Breaking Free of Her Good Girl Past
Today on Vulnerable, my dear friend Mara Wilson is back, and it’s such a joy to talk with her again. You might know Mara from her iconic childhood roles in Matilda and Mrs. Doubtfire. She’s also an NYU graduate, accomplished writer, and child actor rights advocate.
Mara opens up about what it was like to step back from a successful acting career, her unique experience as a student at NYU, and how often fame is misunderstood. She also talks about the healing and hardships that came along with writing her new memoir, “Good Girls Don’t.”
What other child actor went to NYU with Mara? Why did Mara think she’d never be in front of a camera again? Tune in now!
