“Stranger Things” is one of those shows that took off over night. Here you were hating on the fact that JoJo picked Jordan when all of a sudden, BAM! Everyone is talking about some tomboy looking girl with superpowers named Eleven. So, naturally, you logged onto your ex-boyfriend’s best friend’s parents’ neighbor’s Netflix to see what all of the fuss was about. And, naturally, you were hooked instantly.
We already know that the badass series has been renewed for a second season, but what we didn’t know was just how badass the leading lady, Millie Bobby Brown, was. First, she played a hardass, groundbreaking role in television. Then, she demonstrated her insanely impressive rap skills. And now? She’s hoping to inspire girls with cancer.
To get ready for her role on the show, Millie had to shave her head of beautiful, long hair.
And when she was asked about having to go through that, she responded in a way that makes me want to stand up, grab an electric razor, and chop off my locks too (except not really. I mean this figuratively. I’m too much of a little bitch to do this and I think I’d look like a German boy with bad posture if I cut my hair. Still, much respect to her, you know?). This just goes to show that a 12-year-old is a hell of a lot more mature and grounded than most of us.
As she mentions, her hair “isn’t her everything,” and she hopes to inspire girls with illnesses who lose their hair that they can be strong, brave, and beautiful without a whole bunch of dead strands hanging from their bodies. I don’t know about you guys, but when I grow up, I want to be just like Eleven. Keeping killin’ it Millie, and make sure those writers bring you back for season two. We need you in our lives..
