We know him as the kid who ate ALL the cake in the movie Matilda, but Jimmy Karz, aka Bruce Bogtrotter, has had quite the transformation. 

He became the hero for many of us when he went up against Miss Trunchbull in our fave childhood movie in 1996, and his cake scene is one that certainly will never be forgotten.

Jimmy was 12-years-old at the time, and when he ate that scrumptious chocolate cake, there was a roaring applause from all his friends, and to be honest, we WISH we could eat a full cake like that sometimes. 

But these days, he's looking oh-so-different and quite frankly, oh-so-hot.

The actor, who is now 31 has shed all his baby weight and has grown a hunky beard, too. 

Unfortunately he's not into showbiz anymore, but he had quite a memorable role in The Wedding Singer in 1998. 

Jimmy is currently training to be a doctor in Philadelphia, but we're kinda hoping he'll come back for an adult version of Matilda. How cool would that be?!



Can you believe that it’s been 20 years since Matilda went all ‘no-hands’ on that bowl of Cheerios?

Yeah, we couldn’t either, but it’s true and no one knows how fast time flies better than Matilda herself. The actress who played the child genius turned 28 yesterday and as the Huffington Post reminded us, next Sunday will be the 20 year anniversary of the film’s original release.

Based on the Roald Dahl book of the same name, the film became an instant classic when it was released.

Mara Wilson, who played Matilda alongside Danny de Vito and Embeth Davidtz (who played Miss Honey and also McDreamy's sister Nancy for any Grey's Anatomy fans out there.), has taken a step away from the acting game since the film wrapped.

Mara distanced herself from the world of Hollywood as she said the “business of acting” was something that made her really stressed out.

So, does she spend her time re-reading Moby Dick? Kind of- but not really.

Mara went to college and graduated from New York University in 2009 and has since persued a career in writing, playwriting specifically.

Although she is also currently writing a book, according to her website.

An active twitter user, she also enjoys a good throwback to her acting days and indulges fan with some sweet snaps of her former co-stars. Yes Matilda and Lavender ARE STILL BFFS AND THAT MAKES US ALL SO HAPPY!
