Mara Wilson

Much like Shirley Temple, Mara Wilson experienced incredible acting success as a little girl, but not so much when she got older. The Mrs. Doubtfire and Matilda star has revealed puberty meant the end of a lot of auditions, which had a serious effect on her self-esteem. Wilson told People magazine, “There had been a time when people would ask me to be in a movie, without making me audition. Now, that didn’t happen anymore. I wasn’t getting any parts.” In her memoir titled Where Am I Now? True Stories of Girlhood and Accidental Fame, she explained her decision to leave Hollywood came after discovering she was no longer “cute” enough for Hollywood. Ouch.
