'Bill & Ted' Star Alex Winter's HBO Doc 'Showbiz Kids' Reveals Abuse of Former Child Stars

Former child stars are opening about sexual abuse and emotional trauma resulting from being a child actor in Bill & Ted star Alex Winter’s new HBO documentary, Showbiz Kids.

“It was a fantasy come to life,” Winter told the New York Post.

Former child actor Todd Bridges — best known for his portrayal of Willis Jackson on the sitcom Diff’rent Strokes — was also featured in the documentary directed by Winter.

If you are going to be in showbiz as a child, make sure you have a secondary business as an adult,” added Bridges, who is now 55.

Former child star Mara Wilson — who starred in the 1996 film Matilda, as well as alongside Robin Williams in the 1993 film Mrs. Doubtfire — said that her childhood involved people photoshopping her into child porn.
