Witness Eleven's Birth: Watch 'Stranger Things' Millie Bobby Brown Shave Her Head

It took some convincing with ‘Mad Max’ Furiosa’s help.

Millie Bobby Brown is the breakout star in Netflix’s recent show Stranger Things. Heroine Eleven’s iconic aesthetic is synonymous with her shaved head. On Twitter, Brown shared the hair-raising moment Eleven was born via a short clip.

Creators Matt and Ross Duffer revealed Brown’s parents were hesitant about the cut but changed their mind with Charlize Theron’s help:

Mad Max: Fury Road was about to come out, so we pulled out a magazine photograph of Charlize Theron as Furiosa and showed it to Millie. [We asked] ‘Charlize looks totally badass, right?’ Millie agreed; Charlize looked badass. And that was it: She agreed to buzz it all off.”

The cut was magical:

“Within 10 minutes we had shaved it all off and slapped a fake ‘11’ tattoo on Millie’s wrist. Millie looked at herself in the mirror, gave her best Furiosa scream — and Eleven was born.”

Watch the clip below. In Hollywood, hair can make a career.
