‘Stranger Things’ star Millie Bobby Brown may be Hollywood’s it-girl right now, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t get starstruck. And at the 2016 Emmys, the actress admitted to freaking out at all of the stars! Who did she see?
SO cute! While Millie Bobby appears to be super mature beyond her years, but she admitted her 12-year-old fangirl came out at the Emmys. The actress joined Lorraine, 56, on the ITV show on Sept. 22, to talk about her overwhelming experience attending and performing at the star-studded event.
“It was my first time on stage. I have never been in a school play before. I was nervous because it was my first time on stage,” Millie Bobby told the show host. The actress joined a few of her cast mates to perform an incredible singing and dance routine to Bruno Mars’, 30, single, “Uptown Funk.”
But while she was showing her stuff on stage, Millie recalled recognizing some famous faces in the crowd. “I was like, ‘wow, there’s David Schwimmer!’ I saw everyone,” she exclaimed. “I was like oh my goodness… And then I had a panic attack. Like, ‘please I need to take a picture with everyone!'” That is so funny! Millie could barely hold herself together has she recalled all of the celebs she ran into during the night. “I don’t play it cool. I get really starstruck,” she added. Well, she might have been at a loss for words, but Millie managed to snap a couple of pics with James Corden, 38, and John Travolta, 61. We’d say that’s a pretty successful night!
During the rest of her interview with Lorraine, Millie also dished about what’s next for her career. It was recently confirmed that Stranger Things had been renewed for a second season, but Millie, who plays Eleven in the series, wasn’t really sure if she would be returning. But something tells us Netflix isn’t giving up their rising star just yet. Millie says just in case, she also has another project lined up. So we’re guessing as her career continues, she’ll lose the jitters and more and more people will be fan-girling her instead!
