Mara Wilson has become surprisingly popular in the reviewing community, due in large part to her cameo in a Nostalgia Critic review of A Simple Wish (commentary track here) and a review by his counter part, the Nostalgia Chick, of Matilda, of Wilson’s most “controversial” film. (By controversial I mean you either like it or hate it and the two sides have very strong opinions on the matter. I never saw it. Oh, and commentary track.) So when she posted an article to Cracked.com, it was retweeted by that corner of the BW circles. And frankly I’m glad it did. This isn’t a filler like most BW Article Links. 7 Reasons Child Stars Go Crazy is an honest look by the former child actress turned writer as to why other child stars have such messed up lives and why she’s glad she got out when she did. It’s definitely worth checking out.
