Millie Bobby Brown Reminds Fans That She’s Not A Child Star Anymore

Millie Bobby Brown has recently spoken about growing up in front of the camera.

What It’s Like Growing Up In the Public Eye

“The Godzilla vs. Kong” actress was just 12-years-old when she gained fame for her role as Jane “Eleven” Ives in the Netflix’s hit show “Stranger Things.” Now she’s 17, but some of her fans aren’t accepting that she’s not a kid anymore.

“I’m only 17, but at the end of the day, I’m learning to be a woman. I’m learning to be a young woman,” she shared in a video interview with MTV News.

Millie adds that “being a young girl, people watch you grow up, right? And they’ve almost become invested in your growth and your journey. But they aren’t ready to accept the fact that you’re growing up.”

Brown says that they are often focusing on her fashion choices.

“I wear a crop top and people are like, ‘She’s 10.’ I’m like, ‘No…I am 17.’ That’s a thing that girls do. Or I wear high heels. Or I wear an outfit to an award show and they’re like, ‘She looks 50.’ No, it’s because you’ve watched me since I was 10. That’s why you think that,” she says.

Almost Adult

Brown wishes that her fans would accept the person she’s becoming, though it’s not easy for many.

“They’re not accepting it and I’ve completely accepted it. You know, I’m ready. I’m like, ‘It’s been a while. Let me wear a high heel!’ I’m not going to be playing those young girls anymore.”

“I’m not going to be playing those young girls anymore and it’s kind of like, I have 50 million people like my parents,” she added. “My parents are like, ‘Yay! Thank god. You’re 17.’ Like, ‘Put on a pair of high heels. Let’s go!'”
