After retiring from acting, Mia Sara settled down in both New York and Los Angeles with her husband, Brian Henson, and two children, according to her official website. The couple even built their dream home in the Hollywood Hills, which features a large kitchen that serves as “the heart of the house.”
“Mia loves to cook,” Henson told The New York Times. “We also just felt like the whole grand-room lifestyle for a family really keeps you all connected, particularly today when everybody vanishes to different corners of the house.”
While Henson continues to work in the entertainment industry — directing “The Happytime Murders” as well as producing “Dinosaur Train,” “The Star,” and an upcoming “Labyrinth” project (per IMDb) — Mia has pivoted into a successful writing career.
Her poetry has appeared in a variety of publications, and her book “Mid-life with Gorilla” was published in 2014. “I took up writing as a way to survive night shoots,” Mia wrote. “Now it’s words that keep me up all night.”
And Mia and Brian love spending time with their kids — as long as they’re not watching “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.”
“There was this year that every one of my son’s friends saw the movie, and it was horrifying for him and very embarrassing and now it’s happening with my daughter!” she said (per Best Life). “I think it’s embarrassing.”
