It turns out the little actress from the movie Matilda is all grown up and can really write

Mara Wilson, star of the children's movie classics Matilda and Miracle on 34th Street, somehow avoided the common Hollywood child star traps of drugs, parental abuse, bankruptcy etc. and grew to be a thoughtful, interesting, non-acting writer. Her perspective on her childhood fame, and her conscious decision to walk away from it is fascinating, as is her unique writing voice. There's plenty of behind-the-scenes stories as well on fellow co-stars like Danny DeVito and Robin Williams.
