Millie Bobby Brown is the definition of a rising star. But many actually don’t know about the difficult road she’s had to success…
Who hasn’t heard of Millie Bobby Brown?
Starting out in drama workshops up and down the country, the English actress was scouted by a Hollywood talent agent who told her parents she could “mix it with the best kids in Hollywood.”
She made appearances in well-known TV programmes including, Modern Family and Grey’s Anatomy.
And in 2016, she landed her life-changing role in Stranger Things.
Starring as Eleven, a telekinetic prisoner who becomes obsessed with a snack called Eggo, the teen has undoubtedly found the most global success from the show.
And young Millie’s role as Eleven has well and truly rocketed her to stardom.
The 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.
The 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.
Or, as some people claimed, her relationships.
Millie was repeatedly seen hanging out with men much older than her which left fans unsettled.
Drake was slammed for hanging out with the teenager on many occasions.
Obviously, some think it was completely 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.
There’s no denying that Millie doesn’t dress like a normal teenager because, let’s face it, what sixteen-year-old wears Gucci heels with a custom Louis Vuitton gown??
Millie’s wardrobe choices have absolutely nothing to do with anyone else!
Yes, she may look a lot older than sixteen…
But what do you expect when a young girl is living in Hollywood and is hanging out with some of the most famous people in the world?!
She’s starting to act a lot older, too.
According to recent reports, she claimed she wanted to show everyone “what it’s like being a woman of her age.”
“I would really enjoy wearing more fitted clothes now,” she said. “I feel like I’m becoming someone and being a woman so I just want to show that. I think about the girls who are going to look at the picture, those young girls that are going to look at me and if they think, ‘Wow that’s what I should dress up as’.”
Some fans have turned against Millie and are labeling the actress as a “bad role model.”
Which many didn’t know about.
So let’s take a look at some of her darkest secrets.
But before that, they had been struggling for a long time.
With some reports even claiming they were considering declaring bankruptcy.
Even taking long hiatuses from acting to go back to her normal life.
But she also found filming the first season of Stranger Things difficult as she was the only girl in the cast.
It’s credited with keeping her grounded and largely unchanged by fame.
With some claiming his past financial instability has caused him to have a poor relationship with Millie’s newfound wealth.
