Mara Wilson, the actress who played the youngest daughter in the 1993 comedy “Mrs. Doubtfire,” has indicated she has no plans to return for the recently announced sequel.
Wilson, who hasn’t pursued acting since becoming an adult, expressed her reaction in a series of tweets yesterday to the news of the project’s reveal.
Wilson says she has fond memories of the original but has no desire to return. Here’s her tweets:
“For the record, no, I do not have anything to do with the Mrs. Doubtfire sequel, nor will I.
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.
Sequels generally suck unless they were planned as part of a trilogy or series. I think Doubtfire ended where it needed to end.
I’m glad I had the chance to be in it, and I’m proud of what we did, but I don’t see how we could do it again.
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.
They haven’t asked me to be in it, and I think it would be weird if they did! I don’t act much and am not a cute little kid anymore.
But I don’t think a sequel makes sense plotwise, and I don’t think there’d be a part for me even if I did still act and was interested.
I loved being in Doubtfire, and I’m grateful every day I had that experience. I met my sister-for-life Lisa there. I had a great time.
I know! RT @KatBeamon I’m with you. Growing up a 90s kid, I feel it’s best to leave it there. It wouldn’t even feel right coming out now.
