Millie Bobby Brown Says Fans “Aren’t Ready to Accept the Fact That I’m Growing Up”

MBB is tired of the people who still think she hasn’t grown up over the years.
She opened up about people still viewing her the young star she was when her career began.
It often happens with her fashion choices, especially over the most recent years.

“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. So 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,”

“So I wear a crop top and people are like, ‘She’s 10.’ I’m like, ‘No, I mean, I am 17.’ That’s a thing that girls do. Or I wear high heels. Or I wear an outfit to an award so 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.”

“I think that’s what I found has been quite difficult: the transitioning period. 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 and it’s kind of like I have 50 million people [who] like my parents,”

“I don’t want anything to hold me back, which I think is the most important thing. I want to evolve. And I don’t want this industry to hold me back from evolving and telling stories that I feel like have to go with my age.”
