Millie Bobby Brown recently turned 16, and celebrated the day with an Instagram post hitting out at the sexualisation she has faced.
She captioned the video: “ya girls 16 🙂 16 has felt like a long time coming. i feel like change needs to happen for not only this generation but the next. our world needs kindness and support in order for us children to grow and succeed. the last few years haven’t been easy, I’ll admit that. there are moments i get frustrated from the inaccuracy, inappropriate comments, sexualization, and unnecessary insults that ultimately have resulted in pain and insecurity for me. but not ever will i be defeated,
“ill continue doing what i love and spreading the message in order to make change. let’s focus on what needs changing and I hope this video informs you on the things that go on behind the scenes of the headlines and flashing lights. dont worry I’ll always find a way to smile 😉 leggo 16 [sic].
Octavia Spencer commented her support for Millie, saying: “You’re showing tremendous poise in this business that has such built in scrutiny! Enjoy every facet of being 16. Trust me it doesn’t stop even when you’re 35 like me. Ok I’m NOT 35. But hang in there sweetie.”
Randy Havens, from Stranger Things, wrote: “Happy birthday Millie! It’s so cool that you’re turning all the negativity against you into something positive!”
Millie will be back on our screens soon as the powerful character Eleven in the fourth season of Stranger Things. Recently, a clip was released and we were made aware that Hopper was alive.

The creative team sent out a statement to various media outlets revealing what to expect in the next series, and it contained some seriously intriguing tidbits.
Indiewire released the statement in full, which you can read below:
“We’re excited to officially confirm that production on ‘Stranger Things 4’ is now underway — and even more excited to announce the return of Hopper!
“Although it’s not all good news for our ‘American;’ he is imprisoned far from home in the snowy wasteland of Kamchatka, where he will face dangers both human…and other. Meanwhile, back in the states, a new horror is beginning to surface, something long buried, something that connects everything. Season 4 is shaping up to be the biggest and most frightening season yet, and we cannot wait for everyone to see more. In the meantime, pray for the American.”
