Mara Wilson has revealed that she is not interested in the sequel to Mrs Doubtfire, which she starred in back in 1993.

The former child star took to Twitter to share her opinion on the news. She said: “They haven’t asked me to be in it, and I would think it would be weird if they did! I don’t act much and am not a cute little kid anymore. The only reason I’ve said I don’t want to do it is because of the literal hundreds of people asking me about it.”

Wilson continued, “I loved being in Doubtfire and I’m grateful every day I had that experience. I met my sister-for-life Lisa (Jakub) there. I had a great time. But I don’t think a sequel makes sense plotwise, and I don’t think there’d be a part even if I did still act and was interested.”

The Matilda star, retired form acting at the beginning of the millennium, when she told Us Weekly, “Film acting is not very fun. Doing the same thing thing over and over again until, in the director’s eyes, you ‘get it right’, does not allow for very much creative freedom. The best times I had on film sets were the times the director let me express myself, but those were rare.”

Plans for Mrs. Doubtfire 2 have been in the pipeline for years. The film has become a certainty since Elf writer David Berenbaum became involved in the project. It was revealed that Chris Columbus is in line to direct the film while Robin Williams is expected to reprise his role as Mrs. Doubtfire, herself.
