Millie Bobby Brown eager to say goodbye to ‘Stranger Things’: ‘Let’s get out of here’

Millie Bobby Brown became a household name overnight with her role as Eleven on Netflix’s hit series, “Stranger Things.”

But the 19-year-old is more than ready to say goodbye to the franchise and move on with her life.

In a new interview with Glamour (conducted before the SAG-AFTRA strike), Brown compared the final season to the final year of high school.

“When you’re ready, you’re like, ‘All right, let’s do this. Let’s tackle this last senior year. Let’s get out of here,’” she said.

“When I met Jake, I just felt I could be loud. He embraced that and encouraged that. And I fell in love with myself while being with him,” she said.

She recalled asking him why he loved her, and he “listed all these things that I hated about myself. I was like, ‘You see good in those things?’ And he was like, ‘Of course I do.’”

“Those are things that I love about myself now,” she continued. “He was a really big, huge part of me loving myself and becoming a woman. It was like, ‘Wow, I really love this person because he allows me to love myself.’”

Brown admitted she didn’t think she’d plan a wedding so young, but she did know her “dream was to have a baby.”

“I wanted to be the woman that my mom is to me and I wanted to be the woman that my grandmother was to me,” Brown said. “So, that was never my, like, intention to be a wife. But after meeting Jake and seeing, ‘Oh, I don’t have to be this stereotypical wife for him. He doesn’t want me to be that either. He wants me to go and do my thing and live my life, and he will hold my hand in the process of that.’ I was like, ‘Oh, I do want this.’”

Brown has an upcoming movie with Chris Pratt, “The Electric State,” and a debut novel out now, “Nineteen Steps.”
