She was the adorable little girl in "Matilda" and "Mrs. Doubtfire." 

And this past week, former child star Mara Wilson managed to endear herself to her Filipino fans a little bit differently, writing a Twitter post in Tagalog and revealing that she's actually trying to learn the language. 

Wilson asked for help over the meaning of "naman." 

Her Pinoy followers quickly tried to tell her that it has a couple of usages, which might explain why she was confused by it. 

Wilson said that she's a "week" into learning the language. 

Wilson is best known as the titular star of the 1996 movie adaptation of Roald Dahl's bestselling novel "Matilda." She also portrayed Robin Williams’s youngest daughter in "Mrs. Doubtfire."
