Mara Wilson, who played the adorable Nattie Hillard in 1993's Mrs. Doubtfire, thinks that the planned sequel to the film is a bad idea.

The film's star, Robin Williams, is reportedly back on board, and Chris Columbus is set to direct the sequel, which, we assume, sees Williams' out of work actor character Daniel Hillard finally with a steady job and grown kids.

So far Williams is the only cast member from the first film on board; and Wilson says that if she's contacted by producers she has no plans on returning for part two.

In 1994, Williams won a Golden ...

Grown-up child star Mara Wilson will always be grateful to her movie parents from Matilda, Danny Devito and Rhea Perlman - because they supported her when her mother lost her battle with cancer.

The real-life couple played Wilson's mean parents in the hit 1996 movie but they were really sweet to her in between takes and made her part of their family for trips to the theatre and summer pool parties.

And they really stepped up when the young actress' mum fell ill while they were making the film.

Wilson says, "I was eight years old. It was very hard... and they were very nice. While my mom ...
