Melissa Sue Anderson Trivia


  • Trivia

    • When Melissa landed the role of Mary Ingalls on Little House on the Prairie, she was told that her face looked too "well-fed" for a young girl growing up in the prairie days, and she needed to lose five pounds, even though she was at a healthy weight. Melissa and her mother went to her pediatrician to learn how to do this properly, and she did it by eliminating juices, sugary foods, and McDonald's from her diet.
