Millie Bobby discusses the difficulties of being in the public eye
Millie Bobby Brown became a household name at the age of 12, and ‘Stranger Things’ has been on the air for six years. In February, the actor turned 18 years old, and she recently opened up about the occasion.
While appearing on The Guilty Feminist podcast, Brown admitted that growing up in the public eye is difficult.
She explained that any 18-year-old is dealing with the challenges of becoming an adult, having relationships and friendships, being liked, and trying to fit in. It is a lot, and they are trying to figure out who they are in the process. The only difference is that Brown is obviously doing it in public.
Balancing the typical coming-of-age struggles with fame isn’t the only roadblock. According to Brown, there’s a much darker side to all of the attention she’s received. It’s been especially bad since she turned 18: being sexualized online and in the media.

Millie Bobby Brown talks about the dark side of being a celebrity
Millie Bobby Brown addressed a much darker aspect of coming of age in the “public eye” while discussing her experience turning 18 on The Guilty Feminist podcast.
The Stranger Things actress told Deborah Frances-White and Susan Wokoma that she had noticed a “difference between how people act and how the press and social media have reacted” to her.
She reasoned that it should not matter, but it is both gross and true. Brown went on to say that it is an excellent depiction of what is going on in the world. How young girls are affected by it. That is something she has been dealing. But she’s been dealing with it for a long time.
Brown wants to learn more about feminism
Brown first became aware of sexism while working on ‘Enola Holmes’. The actress also revealed that she first became interested in feminism while starring in and producing the Netflix film. Fortunately, her experience on that set did not inspire her to investigate the movement. The Guilty Feminist podcast, on the other hand, played a role in her discovery.
Brown admitted that she was terrified of the word “I do not really understand it”, she said. “And I would like to learn more about it. I need to become knowledgeable”.
A Google search led her to The Guilty Feminist, where she began her education on the subject. And feminism is not the only issue the ‘Stranger Things’ star is passionate about. She is also a UNICEF ambassador, speaking out on a variety of issues that she is passionate about. In this way, her passion shines through both on and off-screen.
Meanwhile, Millie will reprise her role as the telepath Eleven in ‘Stranger Things’’ fourth season, which will premiere on May 27. Netflix has released a teaser for the fourth season of ‘Stranger Things’. The video gives a more in-depth look at the new mystery that the show’s young characters will face as they navigate the hazards of high school.
