Millie Bobby Brown and Drew Barrymore Open Up About Instant Fame and Family

Last year, we were introduced to the now 13-year-old saucer-eyed actress who plays the enigmatic Eleven with brilliance. This year, we’ve witnessed her meteoric rise and wondered, What is Millie all about? Drew Barrymore digs in.

DREW BARRYMORE: Millie! Where are you right now?

MILLIE BOBBY BROWN: I’m in Atlanta, sitting in a chair, putting in hair extensions for my new movie, [the next installment of] Godzilla.

DB: Dude, I feel you! I’ve been in so many chairs with so many extensions on so many movie sets. When going from short hair to long hair, my whole attitude changes.

MBB: It’s crazy! But I do feel more confident when I have short hair. After shaving it off for Stranger Things, I just embraced it as much as possible. It was so freeing.

DB: I love Stranger Things. It’s full circle for me because it harks back to me playing Gertie in E.T. Both are about the sense of family, humanity, and suburbia. And both are so grounded in relatability. And you talk about space and aliens and the improbable and the impossible.

MBB: Yeah! E.T. was a huge reference point for the show. They wanted me to feel like an alien but also have genuine relationships, like the one with Mike.

DB: The auditioning process is so raw and vulnerable. What was your audition like for Stranger Things?

MBB: It was slow at first. Then it went super fast. I had four audition tapes with all different scenes. It was a good three weeks before I Skyped with the series’ creators, the Duffer Brothers.

DB: Oh, wow. Then what happened?

MBB: We talked about ’80s movies. And I didn’t know anything about Eleven at that point, and they were referencing E.T. And I was like, “Wait, what? I’m an alien now?” I was so confused on what the story was about. A week later, I flew to L.A. for the job. I screen-tested with Finn Wolfhard, who plays Mike, and met the creators. I immediately fell in love with the project. I needed to play Eleven. And I connected with Finn. Later, the Duffer Brothers called and asked if I could be their Eleven. I was like, “Oh, yes! Yes, I can!”

DB: Eleven doesn’t talk much. How are you two alike?

MBB: She’s the opposite of me! I’m crazy and very loud. That’s why I love her so much, because I get to play a different person as soon as they call, “Action!”

DB: You mentioned the chemistry you had with Finn. What about the other guys? What’s the dynamic on set?

MBB: We’re a family. We are all growing up together. We constantly have laughing fits on set, which gets me in trouble. But it’s not me; it’s the boys! They’re hilarious.

DB: That’s what chemistry and growing up together is like! Speaking of family, what’s your family life like?

MBB: It’s really fun. I have a 19-year-old brother [Charley]; he’s my best friend. A five-year-old sister, Ava, who brings out the child in me. And then my older sister, Paige—she’s 23 and takes me everywhere. We do family things, like watch lots of movies and have family meetings about everything from schedules to getting a new dog.

DB: I grew up in a single-parent home where no one told me what was right or wrong. There was no parental gure. Do your parents talk to you about boundaries?

MBB: Of course. My mum helps me look my age. Like, I can play with makeup, but I can’t go crazy. She’s also like, “You can’t wear that crop top.” My dad is security, while my siblings take care of my eating, keep me grounded, and make sure I get rest. We are a team.

DB: Seems all-hands-on-deck! Family creates a safe place. Especially since everything changed overnight for you, like it did for me. But the difference is that you’re coming of age during the social media boom. What is that like?

MBB: I don’t mind growing up during this time. I can live without my phone, Instagram, or any other social media accounts. I just want to act. That stuff does not distract me.

DB: It’s Teen Vogue, so we must talk fashion! In the last decade, younger girls have prematurely aged themselves by how they dress. I didn’t dress crazy then, but I did crazy things. You dress so appropriate for your age.

MBB: I mean, I’ve never been one of those girls who dresses provocatively. It’s just not me. I keep it as appropriate as possible. I wear tons of shorts and sneakers.

DB: And you’re one of the new faces of Calvin Klein, right?

MBB: Yes! I’m modeling for Raf Simons at Calvin. I’m not a model in the sense that I pose and just suck it up. I’m like, “Uh, no” if something is itchy or not comfortable.

DB: You make a beautiful model. I love the way you express yourself in your face, and you have a beautiful pout and deep, soulful eyes. How do you get in the zone?

MBB: I don’t do anything specially. I ask what they’re looking for…something playful or serious. I love modeling, but it comes second to acting.

DB: You’re an extraordinary example to any actor. And you make girls feel like they can be youthful for as long as they want. No fast-tracking.

MBB: Most kids do what their friends are doing, like a domino effect. It’s normal. But I do my own thing.

DB: When did you feel like you’d made it?

MBB: Having someone like you, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Meryl Streep feel passionate about our show—that makes me feel like I did. Also winning at the SAG Awards, not only because I experienced it with my castmates and my family but because SAG members enjoyed the show.

DB: Have you done any strange things recently?

MBB: Good one. This interview is one of the stranger things that has happened to me! When I was told, “Drew Barrymore is going to interview you for Teen Vogue,” I was like, OMG! I was freaking out. I don’t know if you heard, but I’ve been trembling on the phone this whole time!

DB: Aw. As women, we just need to inspire each other.

MBB: We need to start a girl squad, like right now!

DB: I’ll be in your girl squad any day. I’m cheering you on.

MBB: This is probably one of the most exciting conversations I’ve ever had. It means so much.

DB: Me, too. And here’s my end note: Gertie loves Eleven.

MBB: Gertie loves Eleven! Oh, my goodness!

Millie recently did a video promoting Converse for back to school. Check out the video and screencaps below.







In Stranger Things’ first season, friends Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), and Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) teamed up to find their missing chum Will (Noah Schnapp). Now, with Will safe back at home—though new friend Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) has vanished—things will be a bit different for the group in the aftermath of what they previously faced.

We spoke with the Stranger Things cast in our TV Insider Studios during San Diego Comic-Con 2017—including new addition Sadie Sink, who plays tomboy Max—about working together on the Netflix hit.

Though Stranger Things season 2 is still months away, Netflix is making the wait a little easier for us by offering up its stars for magazine features and TV interviews early. The four main boys of the crew are on the September cover of Nylon Guys, for instance, but what we picked up from their interview was really about the girls of the show. It seems the addition of new girl Max, played by Sadie Sink, was great news to breakout star Millie Bobby Brown.

“She’s a skater, sort of a punk girl, and she slowly becomes part of the group,” Finn Wolfhard (Mike) told Nylon. In a parenthetical, the writer says Brown was “relieved” to have another girl on the set, according to creators Matt and Ross Duffer.

When Sink’s character was first announced, Variety reported that she was “a tomboy with a complicated history and a serious streak.” At San Diego Comic-Con, she explained to Entertainment Weekly that Max just moved to Hawkins from California.

In the Stranger Things season 2 trailer, we can see a glimpse of Max, looking either sullen or uneasy as she slouches in her desk at school.

As little as we know of Max, we know even less of how Brown’s character Eleven will make it back to this side of reality, so it’s impossible to say what kind of scenes the two young actresses will have together. Even if they have none, we can guess doing all that press with one more girl around must be nicer. (No offense to Nancy or Barb, of course — we’re talking core kids’ crew.)
In an interview with Access Hollywood at Comic-Con, Sink described what it was like to join the tight-knit cast.
“It was a little bit daunting at first but we all clicked automatically,” she said. “We all bonded over some little thing. It really worked out perfectly that all of our personalities just really, really clicked, and I’m so lucky to be working with all of them.”

I’ve added some new (old) portraits of Millie from last year to the gallery and also replaced a set with high quality ones. I’ve also added some photos from the “I Dare You” music video. Enjoy.



I’ve added a handful magazine scans from Millie’s recent featurettes. Thanks to my friend AliKat for the Entertainment Weekly Scan. Enjoy.



Millie Bobby Brown did the sweetest thing for one of her fans!

The 13-year-old Stranger Things star stopped by a fan named Peyton‘s Sweet 16 to celebrate her big day with her! Millie took to her Instagram to share a super cute photo of the duo embracing at the party.

“Stopped off at this cool girls 16th bday party! Sharing your strength, courage, and beauty with us girls is magical. It was an honor to meet you!” Millie captioned the image.

Check out Millie and Peyton‘s photo below…



I added this video to the site over the weekend on our SDCC Master Post with all the photos and videos of Millie from the convention, but I thought I would share it again for those who have missed it. It looks so good! Enjoy!
