Millie Bobby Brown had some big news to share this week...
You've all heard of Millie Bobby Brown, right?
And that's all it took for her parents to pack up their things and move to Los Angeles.
via: Getty ImagesIt only took a week for Millie to be rubbing elbows with up and coming stars and not only that, every agency she came into contact with offered to represent her. Imagine being that talented.
With the rest of Hollywood behind her, she stepped into the industry with ease.
via: Getty ImagesShe made appearances in well-known TV programs including, Modern Family and Grey's Anatomy.
And in 2016, she landed a major role in Stranger Things.

But growing up in the spotlight has come with its own challenges.
via: Getty ImagesThe problem with becoming "famous" is that you have to give up privacy. You're forced to watch your life unfold in a way that you could never imagine, with false news being spread about yourself as well as the people around you.
We've seen what it has done to other young stars.
via: Getty ImagesTake Justin Bieber for instance. We watched the little sixteen-year-old from Canada live out his dreams in the spotlight. But as they became more intrusive, he became more defensive, which ultimately led to a flurry of negative press that ruined his life.
There's no stone that's left untouched.
via: Getty ImagesThe media scrutinizes anyone they can, spreading lies or false rumors, about even young children, just to sell a story. It's the worst aspect of becoming a celebrity and Millie Bobby Brown has obviously become a victim of the press.
It started with her friendships...
via: Getty ImagesOr, as some people claimed, her relationships. Brown was repeatedly seen hanging out with men much older than her which left fans unsettled.
One of the most scandalous was none other than music mogul Drake...
via: Getty ImagesDrake was slammed for hanging out with Milly Bobby Brown on many occasions. Obviously, some think it was innocent but one of his supposed girlfriends was an eighteen-year-old model, who Drake first came into contact with when she was only sixteen and he was twenty-nine. Yikes.
And then the media jumped onto how she chose to dress.
via: Getty ImagesI mean, when we were in our teens, we dressed in tutus with flared jeans underneath. Maybe the occasional hot pink leather jacket and pom-pom earrings to top off the look. But nowadays, things are completely different...
Millie Bobby Brown is the perfect example of that.
via: Getty ImagesShe, unlike all of us, opts to wear gowns and outfits that have been deemed "too adult-like." Though some people are stating that she is allowed to dress however she wants, others have piped up saying she is giving those her own age an unattainable standard.
And now, she landed herself at the center of controversy once again...
Millie is set to star in and produce an upcoming Netflix thriller, The Girls I’ve Been.
A hostage situation ensues at a bank...
Millie is also currently developing A Time Lost at Netflix.
Reactions have been pouring in...
Some thought the star was too young to be producing something for the streaming giant.

Others raised a different point.
Is she too young to be playing the role in the first place?

Some fans have grown concerned that the role will sexualize her.
It's really not sitting right with some people.

Some raised this point, however.Not everyone thinks it's right that a straight person should be playing a queer character.
People didn't hold back...
"Give roles to the people that fit the character."
@NetflixFilm She is not bisexual. Give roles to the people that fit the character. There are plenty of bisexual act… https://t.co/wYlW6uiIiK— Emily B (@Emily B)1596172916.0
