This scene will forever be the most important scene in any movie to me.  This is a little girl who has been told all her life by her parents that she is a mistake and that she is worthless.  This is a little girl whose family life is so horrible that books are her only escape.  This is a little girl whose parents constantly belittle her for reading, the only pleasure in life she has.  And in this scene, this little girl answers very shyly, because she has been conditioned to be embarrassed of her own existence.  At first, she answers slowly, and without making eye contact. And in this scene this little girl is beginning to realize that maybe she is special.  Maybe there are kind people in the world.  Maybe she is worth something.

I have no time for people invalidating Mara Wilson’s coming out because of “the timing”

This is her way of dealing with the Orlando tragedy. By adding her voice to the millions of other LGBT+ people spreading messages of love and support. It’s not “bad timing” or “capitalising”. By showing solidarity with the community, she’s giving more young LGBT+ people another positive role model in this time of tragedy.

Get out of here with your negativity.


“Everyone is born, but not everyone is born the same. Some will grow to be butchers, or bakers, or candlestick makers. Some will only be really good at making Jell-O salad. One way or another, though, every human being is unique, for better or for worse.”

Matilda (1996) dir. Danny DeVito
