Millie Bobby Brown has recently starred in 'Godzilla vs Kong' and while she is best known for her role as 'Eleven' in the Netflix Series 'Stranger Thins' we could assume that thanks to her youth she is an expert in pop culture...but we are wrong.
In a recent MTV interview with Josh Horowitz, Millie Bobby Brown declared something outrageous. “I’ve never watched a Marvel film. I’ve never watched a DC film. But I’m open to it.” She said she’d much rather watch something romantic like “The Notebook” when she’s not working because after all the sci-fi projects she has been into, she feels she needs something more real. “I’m not crazy on [Marvel or DC], because I’m doing it. I’m doing that stuff already. I want to see something that’s real,” at the end she revealed she is open to the idea becase she has never been like “Oh I’m going to put on this film.”
Later, Horowitz asked her what she preferred, Jurassic Park or Harry Potter and she said Jurassic Park, Horowitz was surprised but then Millie revaled she has never watched Harry Potter either. "I have so many friends that just look at me and they’re like, ‘How?’ ‘I don’t know.'” Then she was asked if she preferred 'The Office' or 'Friends' and without hesitance, she quickly replied that she has bingewatched the series alongside her family. Brown also revealed that Natalie Portman is basically her idol despite the fact that she hasn’t seen any of the Star Wars movies.
And if you do not know, the actress almost quit her acting career because she was rejected from another franchise. She auditioned for 'Game of Thrones' and received a 'No thank you' but this led her to land in 'Stranger Things'
She might not watch franchise movies but certainly, she has been in them, the most recent example is in the 'Godzilla' projects or even with 'Stranger Things' and noted something we might not have perceived, that apart from Enola Holmes, she has never played a one-time character. “I’ve never just played a character and that’s it, we don’t revisit her again. I’m signed up for a few more things, which is exciting, because I know they’re going to be a one-time thing. I like doing a character, having a year off, revisiting a character. That shows growth in the character.” An even with 'Enola' she could follow the same path, although there is nothing official, Bobby Brown is in talks with director Harry Bradbeer for a sequel.
