* BewareTheNiceOnes: Her internet persona is basically this: if you don't invoke her demonic rage she is rather a nice person.



* BiTheWay: Just recently, [[https://twitter.com/MaraWritesStuff/status/742814585959403520 she came out as bisexual]].
* BrainyBrunette
* CerebusRetcon: According to one Cracked article, when she was younger she found herself on a foot fetish website devoted to child actresses - which she found quite funny. Years later she told a friend about it and then realised she had been on a child porn website.



* DeadpanSnarker: An attitude she takes in a lot of her writing.
* DisabledSnarker[=/=]HandicappedBadass: Has suffered from depression, anxiety, panic attacks, and OCD, which she [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/4-things-no-one-tells-you-about-having-ocd/ has written articles about]] [[http://amysmartgirls.com/smart-girl-mara-wilson-discusses-mental-illness/ and posted videos online over]].



* FormerChildStar: She prefers the term "reformed drama nerd". She retired on her own, prefers her non-film jobs, and has certainly avoided a breakdown. [[Pantheon/TheaterGreaterGods Parse be Mara!]]
* GagBoobs: See SheIsAllGrownUp for the details below. Even the Nostalgia Chick commented on them.
* HairstyleInertia: On her FAQ section of her website, one such question is why she has the same hairstyle that she had as Matilda. She responded that she's had various short hairstyles in her teen years and grew it out longer than when she was a child.
* HeartwarmingMoments: [[https://twitter.com/MaraWritesStuff/status/579719442638249984 Invoked.]]
* HollywoodAtheist: [[https://twitter.com/MaraWritesStuff/status/508385928394833921 She discussed this at one time, stating that she love to meet some nice atheists yet they're hard to find on the internet]].
* ItIsPronouncedTroPAY: Has consistently pointed out, including in her {{Twitter}} profile, that her name is pronounced MAH-ra, ("rhymes with capybara"), and that it is not pronounced like "Sarah". Many people still mispronounce her first name, though.
* JewishAndNerdy: She's Jewish and she describes her family being a very nerdy one - listing herself as a huge fan of ''Franchise/StarWars''.
* NiceGirl: Works for a non-profit organisation to help children, and loves doing charity work.
* RemakeCameo: Discussed. She declined the suggestion to play Miss Honey in the musical version of ''Matilda'', but said she was open to having a cameo if they made a film.
* ReportsOfMyDeathWereGreatlyExaggerated: Website/IMDb claimed she was dead once. Mara's response was that she CameBackWrong.
* SelfDeprecation: She has [[WordOfGod often mentioned]] that this is her favorite kind of humor, and it shows up plenty of times in her social media accounts and writings.



* SirSwearsALot: Certainly does her fair share of profanity as an adult, on- and offline, when the mood strikes.
* SlashFic: People keep sending her their Matilda/Miss Honey femmeslash fics, the existence of which creeps her out. She has compared these fics to ''{{Literature/Lolita}}''.



* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: Of the writing and drama club type of Tomboy - with a huge love of ''Franchise/StarWars''. But she says she secretly does love [[PinkMeansFeminine pink]].
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Saltine crackers. She posted a photo label of a box of saltines on her {{Twitter}} account, which remains there as of March 2015, and she has humorously discussed her obsession with the snack on Twitter posts..

Mara Wilson (born in 1987) [[FormerChildStar was a child actress]] who was in several films in TheNineties (best known as the title character in the feature film adaptation of Roald Dahl's ''{{Matilda}}''), but decided to leave when she realized "film acting is not very fun", in her own words.

* [[ConvertedFanboy Converted Fangirl]]: Once convinced that [[Creator/DougWalker Doug]] was an asshole because of awful fans of his harassing her, now practically an honorary ChannelAwesome member and good friends with both him and Lindsay.

* AdamWesting: An InvertedTrope variation. Usually, when an actor engages in this they're playing a CloudCuckooLander variation of themselves. Mara Wilson's idea (at least when it comes to Channel Awesome) of this is to [[MemeticMutation WIELD UNHOLY POWERS FROM BEYOND OUR REALM!!]

* [[PromotedFanboy Promoted Fangirl]]: Has [[WordOfGod mentioned in an]] [[http://www.theatermania.com/new-york-city-theater/news/04-2013/being-matilda_64967.html online Theatermania article]] that ''Literature/{{Matilda}}'' was a favorite book of hers from early childhood, and that as soon as Mara's agent mentioned over the phone to her mother that a script called ''Matilda'' was submitted among the flood of scripts on her desk, her mother immediately asked for the script with great delight.
