Is There an R-Rated Version of Mrs. Doubtfire? Mara Wilson Opens Up About Robin Williams' NSFW Outtakes

Is there a secret, NSFW version of Mrs. Doubtfire?

That’s the question the guys from LOGO TV’s Cocktails & Classics put to Mara Wilson, who played Robin Williams’ daughter in the 1993 family dramedy. According to the hosts, there’s a rumor that Williams had so many naughty outtakes that the director was able to cut R-rated and NC-17-rated special editions of the film.

“I don’t know about NC-17, but with some of the things he said, I’m sure there was probably an R [rated] cut somewhere,” Wilson admitted on the special, which airs on Sunday.

Fortunately, Williams kept the raunchy humor away from Wilson, who was just 5 at the time. “He was very respectful around me. He had kids himself and obviously he’s known for some of his blue material; he didn’t do that around us,” she said.

“But he was hilarious, he did all sorts of crazy funny stuff with us all the time, too. We had a lot of fun,” Wilson added.

After Mrs. Doubtfire, Wilson went on to become one of the most recognizable child stars of the ’90s, appearing as a recurring character in Melrose Place, and then in classic films like the Miracle on 34th Street reboot and Matilda.

But by the time she hit puberty, the actress wasn’t getting any parts. “I had good experiences there, but I always knew there were girls much prettier than I was, and I knew that I was always competing with them,” she recently told PEOPLE. “That has followed me my whole life.”

Wilson chronicled her rise to (and escape from) the spotlight in her debut memoir, Where Am I Now?: True Stories of Girlhood and Accidental Fame, which was released in September.
