Matilda actress Mara Wilson slams the way 's child stars are treated ...

Mrs. Doubtfire actress Mara Wilson has slammed in the wake of the new Britney Spears documentary, describing the 'scars' of being a child star.  

Wilson, who also appeared in Matilda and Miracle on 34th Street as a youngster, said she was 'sexualized' from a young age, adding: 'People had been asking me, “Do you have a boyfriend?” in interviews since I was 6. 

'Reporters asked me who I thought the sexiest actor was and about Hugh Grant’s arrest for soliciting a prostitute. It was cute when 10-year-olds sent me letters saying they were in love with me. It was not when 50-year-old men did.'  

Writing in The New York Times she added: 'The way people talked about Britney Spears was terrifying to me then, and it still is now. Her story is a striking example of a phenomenon I’ve witnessed for years: Our culture builds these girls up just to destroy them. 

'Fortunately people are becoming aware of what we did to Ms. Spears and starting to apologize to her. But we’re still living with the scars.' Wilson, now 33, added: 'When you're young and famous, there is no such thing as control.'

Her comments come in the wake of new documentary Framing Britney Spears which focuses on the singer's court-sanctioned conservatorship overseen by her father, Jamie Spears. 

It also features the singer's rise to stardom - from her early childhood to her first record deal, revealing the many ways her narrative has been manipulated by those in her life.

Fans of Spears have demanded apologies from celebrities, including David Letterman, Diane Sawyer, Sarah Silverman, and Perez Hilton, for either making jokes about her mental health more than a decade ago or for casting her in a harsh light. 

Wilson added: 'Many moments of Ms. Spears’s life were familiar to me. We both had dolls made of us, had close friends and boyfriends sharing our secrets and had grown men commenting on our bodies. 

'But my life was easier not only because I was never tabloid-level famous, but because unlike Ms. Spears, I always had my family’s support.'  

Spears' dad Jamie was granted conservatorship over his daughter in 2008 - giving him control over her financial and medical decisions - after she faced mental health struggles, which put her in hospital.

The singer has since gone to court in an attempt to dissolve her conservatorship.
