First kisses can be awkward in the best of circumstances. Does my breath smell? Do I use tongue? What do you even do with your tongue? Are our teeth going to knock? Will our braces get stuck together?
But Stranger Things star Mille Bobby Brown’s first kiss takes the cake.
Millie was appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon the other night with the rest of the teen cast from the Netflix cult hit when, unsurprisingly, the scene where (spoiler alert!) her character Eleven kisses Mike came up.
It turns out that this was Millie’s first kiss. But because she’s awesome, she wasn’t that bothered about the whole tonsil hockey thing.
Other members of the cast weren’t quite as cool about it as Millie was. The Duffer brothers kept sending Millie and her co-star Finn Wolfhard kissing emojis before the big scene.
Not only was her first kiss on camera and in front of the ENTIRE cast and crew of Stranger Things (#awks, though also quite a cool story to tell at parties in later life), but on top of that, her dad was there. Her DAD WAS THERE. And the way Millie tells it, he wasn’t very impressed.
(Also look at Finn’s face in the background, so adorable).
Millie says that immediately after the scene finished she yelled, “kissing is gross!” Finn apparently felt differently, saying “it wasn’t too bad.” All the feels.
Later in the show she rapped Nicki Minaj’s Monster, while also engaging in a silly string war #likeaboss.
Millie, please keep being your awesome self… slash PLEASE tell us you’re coming back for season two.
