Millie Bobby Brown Was Criticized At A Young Age

Millie Bobby Brown expressed how, as a young person, she and her peers naturally talk over each other, yet she felt criticized for this behavior, leading to feelings of being penalized for overtalking and being too loud.

Bobbie Brown told Glamour:

“We’re kids — we talk over each other I was just penalized for overtalking and oversharing and being too loud. It’s hard to hear that at 13. You’re like, ‘I don’t want to ever talk again. I don’t want to be the loud person.'”

In response, Brown altered her approach to interacting with the press. During interviews, Brown grappled with the weight of the critical comments, prompting her to adopt a more reticent approach and only speak when directly addressed, despite her desire to contribute. She explained feeling that it wasn’t her place to speak up during those moments.

She told Heart,


“Everything in my life is publicized and there are few things that I’m able to keep close to my chest. I love to show my love toward him. But that moment specifically, it was so big in my whole life that I was just like I want to keep that one. I get asked this question and I go back and forth if I ever want to tell the story. And I feel like for my mental health, I think being able to give myself that grace on not sharing everything with everyone has always been important to me. Everyone deserves privacy. It’s one of the basic human rights just to say, ‘I am not comfortable with that’ and being able to say no.”

Brown is evidently setting boundaries about the extent to which she shares her personal life with her fans. Considering significant milestones like her engagement, she aims to preserve the significance of the moment by keeping the details private, ensuring it remains a cherished personal memory.
