Millie Bobby Brown, Eleven/Onze from Stranger Things, quickly became one of Hollywood's most famous and in-demand young stars

after starring in the Netflix series, but fame did not come without problems and the actress, now 18, was the victim of a massive 

internet bullying campaign that continues to this day. Now she has talked about how she deals with this form of aggression.

From the most "basic" levels of bullying, such as name-calling and threats, Millie Bobby Brown has

always been in the crosshairs of the internet; whether as a homophobic meme or people criticizing her appearance and her 

clothing, the actress has received attacks in all forms and from all directions for someone so young. Now, in an interview with Allure magazine, Brown talked about why she doesn't use social media and the constant attacks.

The actress, who was also sexualized for years on the internet - when she was still underage - explained that before she deleted her 

Twitter and TikTok accounts she was constantly receiving abusive, violent messages and even intimate photos and videos from adult men.

"It's really hard to be hated when you don't know who you are yet. So it's like, 'What do they hate about me? Because I don't know who I am.'

It's almost like, 'Okay, I'll try to be that today,' and then they say, 'Oh, no, I hate that.' 'Okay, forget that, I'll try to be that today. Oh my God! I hate it when you do that.

Then you just start to shut down, because you're like, 'Who am I supposed to be? Who do they need me to be for them?' So I started to grow more, my family .

and friends really helped. It helped me to understand better that I don't need to be anything that they say I need to be. I just need to develop as myself. That's what I did
