NEW YORK (AP) — Former child star, Hayley Mills, who starred in films “Pollyanna” and “The Parent Trap,” is reflecting on her childhood and the beginning of her Hollywood career.

Her new book “Forever Young: A Memoir” looks back on when Walt Disney came calling and cast Mills in the 1960 film “Pollyanna.” “The Parent Trap” came next, making her a star. Mills struggled in her teen years with her self-esteem, dieted excessively and partied with the Beatles.

Now 75, Mills says she wanted to write about her younger years because she finds people’s origin stories the most interesting.
