Millie Bobby Brown is wise beyond her years.
The 11-year-old “Stranger Things” actress sat down with Natalie Morales and Kit Hoover on “Access Hollywood Live” to talk about the moment she shaved her head for her Netflix series.
“For me, my hair isn’t my everything,” she said. “I think, there’s girls out there who have alopecia, who have cancer and these terrible, terrible diseases, and I think I can show them that’s it’s cool to have short hair. And embrace that you can just be who you are. I don’t care! Just chop it all off.”
Her co-star Winona Ryder was one of the first women to pioneer the short and sassy hair ‘do and gave Brown a few tips for growing it back out. Ryder told Brown that eventually the hair will get to a point where she absolutely can’t do anything with it.
“She showed me a school picture, and I was like, ‘Oh no, I’m not excited for that.’ And she’s like, ‘Don’t worry! I’ll be there for you!'”
