One's a former child star who hit rock bottom, went to rehab, and is still clinging to a life of fame and fortune. The other is a former child star who traded Hollywood for a writing career. As luck would have it, the former Former Child Star just happens to have scored a book deal and (let's be honest) probably needs a ghostwriter.
And, that, folks, is what led to this unexpected Twitter exchange between Lindsay Lohan and Mara Wilson, who played Robin Williams' youngest daughter in Mrs. Doubtfire (which you've probably watched a dozen times this week).
To be fair, Wilson probably understands Lohan's life more than most. She's also written an essay on 7 Reasons Why Child Stars Go Crazy. That has to be a good start.
Though Lohan said her sex life won't be mentioned in her autobiography, it surely won't be short on salacious details. Is Matilda the person to tackle it all? As unsettling as it seems, she just might be. Lock her down, LiLo!
