10 Nov – Millie Bobby Brown has one dream role and that is to portray Britney Spears.
The 18-year-old British actress shared as much in an interview with Drew Barrymore on the latter's talk show, saying that she resonates with Britney's story being a child star as she is.
Said the "Stranger Things" actress, "Just growing up, watching her videos, watching interviews of her when she was younger - I see the scramble for words and I don't know her, but when I look up pictures of her, I feel like I could tell her story in the right way and hers only."
Millie has frequently expressed her thoughts about the obsession people have of her since she rose to stardom through the Netflix series, "Stranger Things. In a previous interview, she expressed, "It's really hard to be hated on when you don't know who you are yet. So it's like, 'What do they hate about me? 'Cause I don't know who I am.' It's almost like, 'Okay, I'm going to try being this today.' [And then they say], 'Oh, no, I hate that.' 'Okay. Forget that. I'm going to try being this today.' 'Oh, my God! I hate when you do that.'"
"Then you just start shutting down because you're like, 'Who am I meant to be? Who do they need me to be for them?' Then I started to grow more, and my family and friends really helped. It helped to be able to understand that I don't need to be anything they said that I need to be," she added.
There have been no plans for Britney's story to be made into a movie, but at least we have one candidate who would love to get that job.
On the other hand, Millie is currently busy promoting her new Netflix movie, "Enola Holmes 2", which co-stars Henry Cavill and Helena Bonham-Carter.
