Millie Bobby Brown opened up about developing trust issues after being subjected to criticism as a young star.
Her lack of trust and accessibility came after she was slammed for talking “too loudly”, and accused of trying to steal the spotlight from her fellow co-stars in Stranger Things during interviews.
In an interview with Glamour magazine, the 19-year-old actress revealed she has drastically narrowed down her friend circle and prefers to block out the critical noise on the internet.
“Nobody’s allowed in. Nobody can say s***,” she told the publication. “This is my life, and the only people that are allowed are the people that I open the gate for.”
“Other than that, everybody’s out,” the British actress continued. “And yes, it’s sad. There are trust issues. And yes, I have issues with having friends.”
Though Brown added she is a socially reserved person, she admitted that she doesn’t have “a lot of friends,” noting, “I block out a lot of people.”
“I will never let that gate open again. Because everyone’s crossed it,” she affirmed.
The award-winning actress stunned her fans after she announced her engagement to beau Jake Bongiovi earlier this year.
The couple met via Instagram DMs at the beginning of 2021.
