These comments are a reminder of the recurring controversy of which Millie Bobby Brown is the subject. Some judge that, despite her young age, the actress is too often sexualized. The cover of # 1019 of L’Officiel magazine from November 2017, entitled “Millie Bobby Brown, 13, the fashionista” had caused an outcry and brought to a standstill the debate about the hypersexualization of young actresses.
In an article titled “Hey Stranger Things Fans, They May Not Sexualize Children,” Sharon Lamb, Professor of Psychology at Boston University testifies:
[…] Young female stars are often under pressure from handlers and executives to become more marketable for adult acting roles by considering their femininity and sexuality.
Translation: “Young stars are often pressured by their agents and producers to” embrace “their femininity and sexuality so that they are more easily entrusted with the adult roles.
