Millie Bobby Brown wished she grew up in the 80s

MILLIE Bobby Brown loves everything about the 80s and would have loved to have grown up then because it was much safer for young people.

The 15-year-old actress – who plays Eleven in the Netflix science fiction horror series Stranger Things, which is set in a small Indiana town in 1983 – confessed she’s “very jealous” of anyone born in the 80s as she feels it was safer then than it is now for young people to leave their homes.

In an interview with HELLO! magazine, she said, “I’m always very jealous of everyone that was born in the 80s. They had so much freedom.

“They could ride their bikes around the neighbourhood. Nowadays I can’t even go out of the house too far, but even before Stranger Things I couldn’t do that because it’s dangerous.”

The Godzilla: King of the Monsters star also loves the fashion and music of the era.

She said, “The 80s had some great fabrics too! The bright colours and the big hairstyles and fun and I love the old Coca-Cola cans. And this show got me into David Bowie.”

As for her own sense of style, Millie insisted that she likes to dress for her age, and explained that although she’s often seen as an adult, she has a very full childhood.

She said, “I’m not in to diamonds and pearls.

“I go more for sneakers. I wore sneakers on the SAG Awards red carpet last year.

“I’m not trying to act like a 25-year-old. I’m going to act like a 15-year-old.

“People don’t seem to think I have a childhood but my life at home is full of baking and burning cakes, going to the park with my little sister Ava and swimming.

“I have three dogs and a cat, so I’m also very into animals. I’m dedicated to my school work, too.” – BANG!
