Millie Bobby Brown Speaks About Her Friendship With Drake in 'W's Fall Fashion Issue
A voice for Gen Z.
Millie Bobby Brown is one of the brightest stars to hit Hollywood in the past three years. After starring as Eleven in the cult Netflix scripted series, Stranger Things, the British actresses’ career began moving swiftly. Now at 14 years old, Brown serves as a voice of a generation, Gen Z to be exact. Ahead of the release of her first film Godzilla: King of the Monsters, she lands the cover of W Magazine’s Fall Fashion issue.
In the stunning images shot by Alasdair McLellan, Millie dons high fashion pieces like a sheer green top by Prada, a chic dress by CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC and a head-turning gown by Gucci. For beauty, her face is kept minimal with a chic cat-eye eyeliner look, while her hair is transformed into an Amy Winehouse-inspired updo.
In the feature interview, Brown spoke candidly about her friendship with Drake and even noted that the two met last November. They were both touring and she broke down that he invited her to his concert and that now they talk all the time. She later shared that she often asks him for advice.
When speaking about her audition for Stranger Things back in 2015 she shared:
“Every part of the show was top secret. I Skyped with the directors [brothers Matt and Ross Duffer], and we spoke about ’80s movies — E.T., Stand by Me, and Poltergeist. I flew to L.A. for a screen test, and the next day I got the job! I was 11. We did the show, and I went back home to England. I thought, Okay, it’s a little show. What’s next? And then we came to America for the premiere. Three days later, my whole life changed.”
Later in the feature, she shares that at times she shared she still gets nervous and anxious despite the fame. After Stranger Things‘ first season, Brown signed a contract with Calvin Klein and was nominated for both an Emmy and a SAG award. Godzilla: King of Monsters is slated to release in May of next year.
