12+ Things We Honestly Didn't Know About Millie Bobby Brown

While Stranger Things star, Millie Bobby Brown, is no "stranger" to the Hollywood scene (heh, get it?), there's still so much we don't know about her.

Like how she's never taken an acting or singing lesson in her life!

Um, what??

Or how she even had a seven-month relationship.

That's just the tip of the iceberg, folks.

Prepare to be just as shocked as we were with these 12+ things we honestly didn't know about this young rising star.

1. Her acting dreams almost caused her parents to go bankrupt.

In her first interview ever, Brown revealed to the Daily Mail that her parents sacrificed everything for her to go after her dreams.

"It was very hard. There were lots of tears along the way," she said about the fact that her parents sold everything so they could move to Hollywood

Things got so bad, Millie's manager even had to lend the family money.

When money officially ran out, they moved back to the UK to live with an aunt.

After a bad audition where a casting agent made her cry, Millie auditioned for Stranger Things.

The rest was history!

It's the friendship that we never saw coming.

The two first struck up a friendship when they met backstage at one of his concerts in Australia.

While at the 2018 Emmys red carpet, the 'Stranger Things' star even dished about their friendship.

"He’s a great friend and a great role model,” she told 'Access.'

"We just texted each other the other day," she said, "He was like, ‘I miss you so much,’ I was like, ‘I miss you more.'"

The fact that she's 14 and he's 30, however, did spark some backlash ...

There were tons of other comments along those same lines.

UGH. Stop age-shaming! (Is that a thing?).

Talk about committing to a role!

Instead of using a cap to appear bald for the role, Brown actually shaved her head.

In an Instagram video, she talked about how actress, Charlize Theron, helped inspire her.

"The day I shaved my head was the most empowering moment of my whole life," she began.

"The only image I had in my head about what I could possibly look like is Charlize Theron in Madmax [sic]."

Instagram | @milliebobbybrown

In an interview with Variety, Brown shocked the world when she admitted that she's deaf in one ear.

She explained that she was born with partial hearing loss in one of her ears. After years of tubes, though, her hearing has completely gone away on that one side.

Despite the condition, she's never let it stop or define her.

In addition to everything else, she also admitted that she has never taken a singing or acting class in her life!

Um, holy talent, much?!

There's no stopping this one.

Whether you know her from Dance Moms or that girl dancing in a leotard in Sia's "Chandelier" music video, you should know that her and Millie are totes BFF.

They met when Brown came to visit the set of 'So You Think You Can Dance' where Maddie was a judge.

Um, when we were 15, we could barely get a guy to like us for more than a day ...

It was to a guy named Jacob Sartorius, and, yes, they were totally adorable.

When they were dating, Millie even posted this cute pic that got some celebs talking.

While the two did eventually break up, they will always have this pic (and the hilarious celeb comments).

Ah, love.
