Add this to the sci-fi pedigree of Natalie Portman and Millie Bobby Brown: Could Brown perhaps be… Portman’s clone?!
Well, probably not, but the two share some eerie similarities. Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown is Hollywood’s reigning ingénue. She exploded on to the scene with a shaved head and a bloody nose as Eleven, earning her an Emmy nomination at just 13 years old. But before there was MBB, there was NP: Portman also started her career at 13, starring in The Professional in 1994. She earned her sci-fi stripes at 18 years old as Padmé Amidala in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace (1999). She even did the shaved head first, in 2005’s V for Vendetta.
