Millie Bobby Brown's First Kiss Ever Was for 'Stranger Things' — And It Was "Weird"

“Kissing sucks.”

We all remember our first kiss — except, unlike Millie Bobby Brown’s, ours wasn’t filmed as part of a hit television series. The moment her character Eleven pecked Finn was a personally major one for her and for everyone else who watched it happen on Stranger Things, but she’d do anything for the show (like shave her hair off), Millie tells BFF Maddie Ziegler who chatted with her for Interview magazine.

The November 2016 issue is Millie’s second cover — and her first American one — but expect many, many more to follow. The accompanying spread places her in an ’80s mood, which is fitting considering the time setting of the Netflix original. Read an excerpt from Millie’s feature below, then pick up a copy to see more now.

ZIEGLER: We were talking about Stranger Things being your favorite show because you get to kiss Finn [Wolfhard, who plays Mike].

BROWN:
You’re an evil, evil person. You know that? Are you aware of that, Maddie? Yeah, I did have to kiss Finn. At the end of the day, it’s only acting, and it’s something you have to do, and I would do anything for the show. I cut my hair, I kissed Finn. It was definitely strange. It was, like, my first kiss, so it was kind of weird. But then, like, when I’d done it, I thought, “Wow. It makes sense for the storyline.”

ZIEGLER: It was priceless, like, your reactions. You were like, “Kissing sucks.” And then Finn …

BROWN: Finn reacted quite well and I didn’t. [laughs] I felt really bad afterwards.

ZIEGLER: It was funny because, obviously, boys are attracted to you. Pretty cool.

BROWN:
It’s in a strange way. I don’t know if they’re like in love with the character. Like, [they want to brag] “I know the real character, guys.”
