The boy from 'Mrs Doubtfire' is all grown up and now looks like a Greek god
Mrs. Doubtfire was my favorite movie as a kid, and still holds a dear place in my heart up to this very day. That film and I went through a lot together, and I could quite often be found sitting on the sofa giggling up a storm as Robin Williams' Daniel Hillard continued to fool his entire family into believing that he was Mrs. Euphegenia Doubtfire, a floral blouse-wearing elderly British widow who can "hip-hop, bebop, dance 'til ya drop, and yo yo, make a wicked cup of cocoa."
If not that, then I could easily be found recommending it to my friends as a way to help them come to terms with their parent's divorce, or driving my parents insane by trying to mimic the many phenomenal voices of Robin Williams, oblivious to the fact I'd never be as comedically talented as the late, great actor.
And I wasn't the only person to fall in love with the Hillard family, as the movie brought in a whopping $441,286,195 worldwide, and was the second highest grossing film in 1993.
But as big of a fan as I was (and continue to be), there was one thing that went over my head regarding the 1993 classic comedy movie, and that was just how hot Matthew Lawrence - who played Williams' on-screen son, Chris Hillard - became.
But, praise the geniuses who invented Instagram, because thanks to them, we are all able to catch up with Matthew and his dashing good looks today.
More than 24 years later, Matthew now looks like this (see below). Of course, every pre-teen girl knew that he was a hottie back then, but it took the rest of us a while to have our eyes opened to it.
So what has Matthew, who is now 37-years-old, been up to since Mrs. Doubtfire?
As some may know already, the Pennsylvanian-born actor continued as a child star throughout the early 1990s, appearing in many television and feature film roles, including Brotherly Love, Boy Meets World and Blossom.
Afterward, he managed to transition from child to adult actor, clinching roles in movies and TV shows like The Hot Chick, Melissa and Joey and Girl Meets World.
Fans will also remember his handsome brothers, Joey and Andrew, who starred alongside him in several 90s television shows such as Gimme a Break! and Brotherly Love.
His reappearance on social media has completely thrilled Instagrammers, who keenly comment on his posts at every given opportunity.
Many have shown their enthusiasm for Matthew's strong jawline, gorgeous brown eyes, and dreamy smile by leaving comments like, "look! He's still perfect!", "please date me", and "just heard your interview with Mario Lopez. Lemme bear your children pls".
It would be no word of a lie if I said that his social media pictures could reawaken the heart of every young girl who watched him scowl his way through the 1993 film in a true young moody teenager style. I guess some loves really do last a lifetime.
But Matthew wasn't the only Hillard child to capture our hearts. What about his on-screen sisters?
Most of us are very aware of the career path Mara Wilson, who played the adorable Nattie, decided to choose.
Deciding to leave the acting business, Mara pursued a career as a writer and is also an outspoken advocate for the LGBTQ+ community.
She has made several one-off appearances on web-based programming, but it seems she's perfectly content with staying out of the public eye and getting on with her life. Much like her on-screen older sister, Lisa Jakob.
Jakob played the level-headed Lydia "Lydie" Hillard, and would you believe it, is now 39 years old (which makes me feel ancient).
Following her role in Mrs. Doubtfire, Jakob went on to appear in movies such as Independence Day and A Walk on the Moon. Her last acting role for both film and television was in 2000.
In response to a fan asking what Jakob has been up to since starring in Mrs. Doubtfire, Jakob replied how she continued to act for eight more years, but now mainly focuses on her writing, family, and yoga instructing.
Her most recent book, Not Just Me: Anxiety, Depression, and Learning to Embrace Your Weird, has received positive reviews from readers and critics alike.
Is great to see all three of the "Doubtfire" children doing so well in their adult lives, as it often feels like they're my own childhood friends.
Anyway, that's enough of this nostalgia trip, I'm off to watch Mrs. Doubtfire for the 1,983rd time.
