Mrs. Doubtfire was my favorite film as a kid and still holds a dear place in my heart up to this very day. Me and that film went through a lot together and I could quite often be found sitting on the sofa giggling up a storm as Daniel Hillard continued to fool his entire family into believing that he was Mrs.
Euphegenia Doubtfire, a floral blouse wearing elderly British widow with a knack for causing utter havoc around the house.
If not that, then I could easily be spotted 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, forgetting that in reality I just sounded worse than when children at school used to try and do the “Scooby Dooby Doo” catchphrase.
But, as big a fan as I was and continue to be, there was one thing that went over my head about the aftermath of the 1993 classic comedy film.
And that was just how hot Matthew Lawrence, who played Chris Hillard, became. But, praise the genius who invented Instagram. Thanks to them, we were all able to catch up with Matthew and his dashing good looks.
More than 24 years later, Matthew now looks like this. Of course, every little-bit-in-love pre-teen girl knew that he was a hottie back then, but it took the rest of us a while to open our eyes to it.
So what has Matthew, who is now 37-years-old, been up to since Mrs Doubtfire, which brought in $441,286,195 worldwide and was the second highest grossing film in 1993, hit the silver screen back in the mid-90s?
As some may know already, the Pennsylvanian born actor continued as a child actor through the early 1990s, appearing in many television and feature film roles including Brotherly Love, Boy Meets World and Blossom.
Afterwards, 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 Instragrammers 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 had reawakened the heart of every young girl who watched him scowl his way through the 1993 film in true young moody teenager style. I guess some loves really do last a lifetime.
