Mrs Doubtfire’s child star is unrecognisable with a beard aged 44 – three decades after hit 90s movies

MRS Doubtfire fans will be left doing a double take when they see this child star from the movie.

The film was a blockbuster smash in the 90s and starred the late Robin Williams as devoted dad Daniel Hillard – aka Mrs Doubtfire.

The movie featured three child actors who played Daniel Hillard’s children[/caption]

Robin’s character was left so heartbroken when his marriage broke down that he forged an elaborate plan to get close to his three kids.

Using make-up and a wig, Daniel transformed himself into an elderly Scottish-sounding nanny called Euphegenia Doubtfire and convinced his estranged wife to hire him.

Unfortunately, he was eventually rumbled when his mask slipped right off while out with his family in a posh restaurant.

One of the kids in the iconic film was played by child actor Matthew Lawrence.

Matthew was just 12 years old when he was flown to San Francisco to audition for the role of Daniel’s middle child Chris.

After impressing casting directors, he landed the part and – despite having already starred in several smaller budget films – suddenly became a household name.

Matthew is 44 years old now and looks a world away from his floppy-haired 12-year-old character Chris.

In a recent podcast video, he was sporting a beard and glasses.

Matthew is still acting and records his podcasts alongside his two famous brothers, Joey and Andrew.

Following Matthew’s Mrs Doubtfire fame, the trio starred in their own sitcom called Brotherly Love from 1995 to 1997.


Joey was already famed for playing Joey Russo in Blossom and Andrew was already breaking into film and television.

These days, the brothers record their podcast, also called called Brotherly Love, and recently it even sparked a Mrs Doubtfire reunion.

Matthew invited his co-star Mara Wilson onto the pod. Mara, now 36, played Chris’ five-year-old sister Natalie in the film.

He excitedly told his followers on Instagram: “A Mrs Doubtfire reunion. 30 years in the making!”

Looking taken aback by how long it had been, Mara gasped: “Oh my gosh!”

Mrs Doubtfire was released in 1993 and grossed $441.3MILLION (£350MILLION) in the box office.

The film won the Oscar for Best Make-up and the Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.

Lead character Robin Williams, who tragically died in 2014, was awarded the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.
