Millie Bobby Brown Dishes on Her Pal Drake, Plus: Her Gone-Viral Shaved-Head Video
Only “Extra's” Mark Wright spoke with “Stranger Things” actress Millie Bobby Brown, who opened up about her friendship with rap superstar Drake.
Of their first meeting, Brown shared, “Well, we met in Australia and he asked me to go to his show… and it was probably the best performance I've ever seen!"
She explained how he has helped her with her newfound fame, saying, “It's Drake and he's great… I have great people around me to help guide me through this, and he's one of those people.”
A lot of people have been buzzing about the video that Millie posted when she shaved her head to play Eleven. As for why it was important for her to share that, the 13-year-old said, “It felt so right for me, for the young girls, to make them feel they're okay to do this and look different and be weird.”
The day I shaved my head was the most empowering moment of my whole life. The last strand of hair cut off was the moment my whole face was on show and I couldn't hide behind my hair like I used to. As I looked in the mirror I realized I had one job to do. Inspire. pic.twitter.com/k65c7dGId1
Millie continued, “When I shaved my head, there was a lot of bullying going on toward me… It was a hard time for me, but when the show came out, everybody was like, 'Shaved head is cool!' — but [they] didn't think that when it wasn't out.”
Millie and the cast are heading back to Georgia soon to start filming the third season of “Stranger Things.” She pointed out, “It's insane! I feel like it's gonna be our best season so far… It will probably come out when I'm 15... I started this show when I was 11... I'm gonna be a young woman.”
As for what's to come, she said, “I'm excited about the future. I have so many years ahead of me, I don't have to worry too much right now.”
