We know she rocks a cool skinhead, but does Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown have the full chops to play Britney Spears in a biopic?
During a recent appearance on ‘The Drew Barrymore Show’, Brown, 18, said she dreams of one day playing Britney in a biopic, if ever one were to be made.
“I want to play a real person and I think for me it would be Britney Spears,” Brown said to Barrymore. “I think her story resonates with me. Just growing up in the public eye, watching her videos, watching interviews when she was younger.”
Brown said she relates to the awkwardness of being a young celebrity in the prying eye of the media.
“I see [Britney] scramble for words and – I don’t know her, but when I look at pictures of her, I feel like I could tell her story in the right way, and hers only.”
Said Britney: “I hear about people wanting to do movies about my life … dude I’m not dead!!”
Millie Bobby Brown is recently produced and starred in the Enola Holmes film franchise, playing the title role – a young woman who starts up and runs her own detective agency (read: an even younger Sherlock Holmes, if you will).
Since wrapping Enola Holmes 2, Brown said she may find it difficult returning to the Stranger Things set.
“While filming, I had a dream I was on the set of Stranger Things, and I couldn’t stop looking at the camera,” she said during a Q&A that took place after the NYC screening of Enola. “And now, I have this deep-rooted fear I will never stop looking at the camera.”
