Mrs Doubtfire stars reunited after 25 years: What they look like now

Mrs Doubtfire has firmly placed its name in the hall of fame with the classic comedy being a favourite of people of all ages.

And to mark the film's upcoming 25th anniversary on November 24, some of the stars have gotten together for a reunion.

Pierce Brosnan shared a photo on his Instagram of his three co-stars Matthew Lawrence, 38, Mara Wilson, 31, and Lisa Jakub, 39.

The film was centred around the late Robin Williams’ character who transformed into a woman and played the role of housekeeper, so he can be around his children after an ongoing feud between him and his on-screen wife, Sally Field.

The three children were portrayed by Lawrence, Wilson and Jakub, with Brosnan playing Stu, the future stepfather to the kids.

Brosnan shared the video to his social media and captioned it, “Love you, love you all so much, so good to be a part of your lives."

The reunion was noticeably missing Williams after he tragically ended his life on August 11, 2014, aged 63.

Jakub, who also went through mental illness, mentioned previously how open Williams was about his mental health struggles.

“I think he thought that was, you know, a prime time to really be open with me and honest,” she said. “And I have dealt with depression, and I have anxiety, and the fact that he was that open, that honest, that willing to talk to me about it was something that was really special.”
