Mara Wilson, best known for playing Matilda, responded with killer sass to a Daily Mail headline about her appearance.

In an interview on ITV's Lorraine Mara Wilson, who played the loveable magic child and psychological torturer from the 1996 classic, revealed some interesting things fans may not have known.

Reporting on this, the Daily Mail focused on how much Wilson's appearance had changed in the last two decades.

Wilson responded to the headline on Twitter:
