The act of shaving your head completely is not an easy task for sure. Certainly, not for a woman. But Millie Bobby Brown makes the whole act sound so easy. Millie shaved her head to gear up for the character “Eleven” which she’s portrays in ‘Stranger Things.’ Millie Brown tweeted on Sunday, that she misses her shaved head.
She posted on twitter “The day I shaved my head was the most empowering moment of my whole life. The last strand of hair cut off was the moment my whole face was on show and I couldn’t hide behind my hair like I used to. The only image I had in my head about what I could possibly look like is Charlize Theron in Madmax [sic]. As I looked at myself and couldn’t see my old self, I realized that now; I have a job to do and that is to inspire other girls that your image or exterior part is not what I think is important. What I find important is caring, loving and inspiring other girls. Thought to share my thoughts during this life changing moment.”
This act of hers caused a chained reaction. In response to her tweet many others shared their own personal stories of shaving their head.
