Mara Wilson Says All the Words in Our Hearts
If you're a child of the '80s or '90s, then you probably heard the news that there's a likely "Mrs. Doubtfire" sequel in the works and grimaced and subsequently pulled all sorts of disappointed faces just like the rest of us.
Mara Wilson, however -- young Nattie Hillard in the original film -- articulated our feelings a little bit more, and to a greater depth, and for that, we thank her. Take it away, Mara:
For the record, no, I do not have anything to do with the Mrs. Doubtfire sequel, nor will I.— Mara Wilson (@MaraWritesStuff) April 17, 2014
I've been in some mediocre movies, but I've never been in a sequel. And I have no interest in being in one now.— Mara Wilson (@MaraWritesStuff) April 17, 2014
That about sums it up, right? We all love and adore Robin Williams, and there's not a whole lot he can do wrong (except maybe "Patch Adams"), but honestly. I realize that the script has been in development for over a decade, but still -- sometimes it's just best to leave sleeping dogs lie so they don't pee all over and tarnish the legacy that a wonderful movie made a quarter-century ago left.
There are many, many reasons I don't want to be in Mrs. Doubtfire 2. But they haven't even asked me (yet), so no need to worry.— Mara Wilson (@MaraWritesStuff) April 17, 2014
