Millie Bobby Brown Opens Up About the Tough Side of Child Stardom

Navigating the bright lights and constant scrutiny of Hollywood is no easy feat, especially when you’re just a kid. Millie Bobby Brown, best known as the telekinetic Eleven from “Stranger Things”, knows this all too well.

Recently, Glamour spotlighted Brown as one of their 2023 Women of the Year nominees. Chatting with the magazine, she got real about the ups and downs of her early fame.

Remembering her younger days, Millie shared how she was often tagged a “brat” during press tours. She recalled how she and her co-stars, just being typical kids, would sometimes talk over each other. But she felt singled out. “People thought I was being too loud or trying to grab all the attention,” she said. Words like “idiot” and “stupid” were thrown around, and those hurtful comments stung, especially coming at just 13.

She admitted that such harsh feedback made her second-guess herself during interviews. “All I wanted was to join in the conversation, but those comments made me feel like maybe I should just stay quiet,” she confessed.

It’s a stark reminder that behind the on-screen magic, actors are real people with real feelings. Millie’s candid chat underscores the importance of kindness and empathy, even in the world of celebrity.
